Lauren and Chase were married December 17th at St. Mary’s Chapel with the reception taking place at a Toll Brothers’ model home in Cary. Lauren’s mom works for Toll Brothers so we were able to have the reception in this amazing 8,000 square foot house all decked out in holiday decor. Chase called me back in May and told me that he and Lauren were both living out of town (Lauren in Nashville working on her phD and Chase getting ready to make the move from Texas to Nashville) and were in need of a wedding planner. They were looking for someone to help them plan their wedding and be their eyes and ears here in North Carolina since they were limited on time as well as trips to NC. We got to work pretty quickly on securing some top notch vendors and coming up with the perfect winter wedding theme to fit this fabulous reception site.
Thanks to Brian Mullins for capturing all the great moments from Lauren and Chase’s big day! Also, thanks to Lauren for the wonderful review she submitted about her experience working with us… it’s a great feeling to call someone a friend after working with them and I so enjoyed working with Lauren, Chase, and both sets of their families on this special weekend!
“Megan made us feel like we were planning a wedding with one of our close friends. She made our entire wedding weekend absolutely perfect!! We decided to hire a planner 3 months after being engaged. We both have jobs that require large amounts of our time and we were struggling to plan the wedding we wanted. Hiring Megan was the best decision we made (besides deciding to get married of course!!). She coordinated all our vendors and made them cost effective. But, most importantly, she quickly and truly understood our vision for our entire wedding weekend. She made the planning and the wedding weekend go smoothly and it turned out even better than we had dreamed of. We have no idea what we would have done without her. She is extremely detail-oriented and doesn’t let anything fall through the cracks. She is incredibly sweet and everyone involved in the wedding commented on how wonderful she is! We STRONGLY recommend Megan and the entire A Southern Soiree team.”
Thanks to all the wonderful vendors involved in this event. Lauren and Chase, thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of your big day, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
