Corrie and Brad’s Durham Rickhouse Wedding

July 29, 2016

We are so excited to share this beautiful and touching wedding with you! Corrie and Brad were married this past May at The Rickhouse in Durham! We had so much fun working with this sweet couple to plan the perfect details of their big day. One of our very favorite touches of the day was Corrie’s bridal bouquet. In honor of her late mother, we had a special bouquet filled with Lilacs and Lily of the Valley made by the talented English Garden Florist. These flowers were Corrie’s mother’s favorites, which made the bouquet even more special to Corrie!

Draping and special chandelier lighting by Get Lit created an intimate ceremony space for Corrie and Brad to commit their lives to one another. A delicate garland made by English Garden framed the altar space perfectly and added just the right amount of color to the space. After the ceremony everyone was ready to celebrate! Randy with Bunn DJ Company always knows how to keep a party going, and Corrie and Brad’s wedding was no exception. Their guests were up on the dance floor all night not wanting it to end!

Corrie and Brad, thank you for choosing and putting your trust in A Southern Soiree to help plan such a wonderful day! Check out a few things they had to say about their experience:

There aren’t enough words to express how much I loved working with Megan and Gina, and how much I miss them now! I knew upfront that I wanted to work with a planner for the entire planning process, but I’m blown away by everything Megan and Gina did. We all know that wedding planning is stressful, and even more-so for a Type A personality. Megan is a fantastic people-reader and figured me out pretty quickly. She kept me in the loop, reassured me she had everything, and made me feel incredibly comfortable so that I didn’t worry about all the details. From a practical standpoint, Megan and Gina ensured we used some of the best and most reliable vendors, that the budget was held to, I was veered away from making costly decisions (unnecessary chargers), and that alternatives were presented anytime there was a hiccup or potential change. This, for me, meant they were worth their weight in gold. To top it off though, they are sweet, charming, honest, and fun people! I was excited to spend time with them, not only to plan our wedding, but just to interact and there were always laughs. And sometimes tears which they always reassured were normal. They make you want to give them a bridesmaids dress and join your party rather than run it. Megan and Gina helped make Brad and my wedding day an amazing, easy, fluid, and unforgettable day. So, if you’re on the fence, take the leap over to the Southern Soiree side. It’s worth every penny!!
