Whitehead Manor Wedding: Lyndsay + Larkin

Where do I even begin with this fabulous wedding?!  The setting, the dress, the decor, the people – it was all so incredible!  Every single detail looked like it was straight from a magazine!  Lyndsay and Larkin’s lavender inspired wedding, at Whitehead Manor, is one I’ll never forget!

The girls stayed on one side of the venue getting pampered and popping champagne, while the guys hung out and told hilarious stories on the other side.  There were 3 first looks that took place  and they were all so sweet!  The first was with Lyndsay, her father, and her brother.  The second was between Lyndsay and Larkin, which was so beautiful and emotional.  And the third was with their two pups.  Yes, they had a friend bring their pups over for a first look and it was priceless!

There were fresh florals and succulents all around the venue and each reception table had a sign for the different Charlotte areas.  Each detail was custom designed and tied everything together beautifully.  From the invitation monogram, to the menu, to the place settings, to the can koozies – it was a photographer’s dream!  Let’s not forget their custom neon “The Wobbes” sign!

After an emotional ceremony, the two joined cocktail hour and visited with their guests.  As everyone started to make their way to the reception area, they stopped at a champagne stand to grab a flute for the grand entrances.  Lyndsay removed the skirt from her amazing two piece gown and got ready for the big introduction and first dance.  Larkin twirled his beautiful bride around the dance floor and the newlyweds couldn’t stop smiling!

After dinner and toasts, everyone danced the night away.  Halfway through the reception, servers began walking around with cups of homemade macaroni as a “late night snack” for their guests.  Such a brilliant idea!  After a bubble send-off, all of Lyndsay and Larkin’s closest friends and family were shuttled back to the hotel to kick off the after party.

This entire day couldn’t have been more perfect and it’s been such a joy working with Lyndsay and Larkin!  A huge thank you to the rockstar team of vendors who came together to make this day extra special for them!
