Megan + Taylor’s vibrant and joyful wedding took place at The Meadows at Firefly Farm Preserve in Raleigh, North Carolina. Their wedding was in fall of 2020, and we still had guest count restrictions limiting how many people could attend, so Megan and Taylor opted to downsize their guest count and amp up the experience for their 20 guests!
We worked with Megan + Taylor as their wedding planners, event designers, and florists. The event balanced minimalist design with bold colors and craft inspired elements such as crochet and macrame, watercolor details, and organic, garden style floral designs. We created a really cute suite of event paper and signage, plus place cards which we printed on transparent film and attached to the menu with multi-colored tassels! The large, decorative tassels were handmade by Erica as well and are now part of our inventory along with the macrame plant holders.
Megan + Taylor’s wedding was full of lovely moments including lots of sweet doggo playtime with their pup, Gus! He was quite the dapper gentleman in his doggy tuxedo but that didn’t stop him from trying to sneak some bites of the cake or steal a dance with Megan!
The folks at Rocky Top Catering helped us create an eclectic, international street food inspired menu which we initially planned to be served at stations, but when the guest count had to be cut down, we switched to a multi-course, tapas-style service.
2020 weddings had to be planned, replanned, adjusted, postponed, and rethought so many times, but Megan + Taylor were flexible and understanding of the challenges we all faced. Ultimately it was one of the few weddings of 2020 that ended up moving forward on its original date, which also made for a very special experience for the vendors. We often like to refer to our favorite vendors as a dream team, but if there was an ultimate dream team, it was at this wedding. For many of us, it was a rough year, and it was wonderful to see each other put together this wedding for such a lovely couple!
