Leigh and Tony Engagement Party

Leigh and Tony’s engagement party took place at Haywood Hall earlier this month and it was such a beautiful event! I have been working very closely with the 2 of them on the wedding and this party and they are such an amazing couple. They are both so sweet, kind and funny and not to mention the fact that they and my dog, Albie, have bonded over peanuts in my office (that is a long story!).

I love Haywood Hall for smaller events like this, the garden is amazing and the big magnolia tree is perfect for hanging votives and in this case, pomanders of flowers, crystals and lanterns. Lyn and Michael at Fresh Affairs created our GORGEOUS florals. Every piece was absolutely stunning! The Catering Company of Chapel Hill put together a delicious, southern menu for us with sea bass, pork tenderloin and collards. Shutterbooth provide a photobooth for guests to play around in and Sweet Memories made 3 different flavors of cupcakes for the guests to take home. Bunn DJ Company provided our fabulous music for the evening. All of our gorgeous rentals including the tent and amazing chandeliers came from CE Rentals. Last but not least, the ridiculously talented Shane Snider took all of the images at the event and provided these for us. He captured everything perfectly, enjoy the images below!

Pomanders of roses, orchids, hydrangeas and peonies hung from the trees at Haywood Hall. Also, in the trees were lanterns and votives that created a gorgeous glow as the sun went down.

Yummy cupcakes from Sweet Memories. 3 different flavors, chocolate, lemon pound with strawberry mousse and sweet potato!

The gorgeous tent!

Floating candles lined the walkways to the tent, absolutely stunning!

Leigh and Tony’s wedding takes place in November, we are looking forward to sharing their special day with them!
