I began working with Chiara and Andrew back in April 2012, and we spent the next 15 months planning their wonderful wedding day! They were married in June at beautiful Christ Episcopal Church in downtown Raleigh. The day started with rain (!) but ended with a night of fabulous fun and laughter at the Stockroom on Fayetteville Street, where everyone had a blast.
The details of the wedding came together so beautifully, from the seersucker wrapped floral arrangements, to the blueberries in Chiara’s bouquet and the monogrammed wrap around her bouquet – everything was gorgeous and fit Chiara and Andrew’s styles perfectly. Some of the other details included the dessert bar (Chiara made the desserts herself!), the delicious his and her signature cocktails, and the custom made koozies. All were huge hits! The overall look of the reception was made complete with the floral centerpieces and beautiful market lights. The Remedy (one of our favorite bands) kept guests dancing all night long! Thank you Martha Manning for the stunning images of Chiara and Andrew’s wedding day!
Thank you Chiara for the sweet review on Wedding Wire!
“I can’t say enough positive things about A Southern Soiree and especially Kailey. Kailey was so helpful from day one. She is organized, professional and works diligently to see that you receive the wedding you envisioned. Her response time to emails, is exceptionally quick. I never once went to her voice mail. She always responds to a question and works to make sure that this is you and your partner’s day. She has a wonderful attitude, which makes her easy to work with. I couldn’t imagine using anyone else, everything was done how we had discussed and the wedding day was stress free. Kailey was there to tell me if a price was high or low, to determine the number of cups, plates, etc., when I didn’t want to tell someone no she did it and so professionally I might add, she thought dimensions and layouts, reminded me when I forgot something, worked with vendors to establish drop off and pick up times, our wedding day was perfect and stress-free because she was there. My dad was so happy with how the wedding turned out and so many people said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I really urge you to use this company. Actually, say their name to any vendor and see their face light up. Vendors love them and we also were under budget.”
