Laurie and McQueen Campbell’s Carolina Country Club Wedding!

January 12, 2012

Laurie and McQueen first came to me in June and were married this past November at the Carolina Country Club. With 5 months of planning, we planned a fabulous, super fun wedding that very much reflected the bride and groom’s personalities!  With every couple I like to find out what is most important to them when it comes to the wedding day. Laurie and McQueen knew they wanted to have a excellent band and wanted to provide a great time for friends and family traveling in town for the wedding weekend. We started looking at venues and came across Carolina Country Club, which had an elegant yet approachable feel that could accommodate their estimated 300 person guest count.

As we went through the planning process we booked fabulous vendors for this event. However, what really sticks out in my mind from this wedding are two perfect surprises that made the wedding so memorable. The first was McQueen surprising Laurie (and everyone else!) by singing a song and playing the piano during the ceremony. He did an amazing job and had the whole church in awe. The second was a surprise exit that McQueen, Brenda from Carolina Country Club and myself kept secret from Laurie and all the guests until the very end of the event!

Thank you so much to Walters and Walters Photography for these lovely images and to all the other wonderful vendors that made this day possible!  Stay tuned for a lovely wedding film clip of the event coming next month!
