Jenny and Kory's Summertime Umstead Wedding!
Jenny and Kory were married this past July at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in downtown Raleigh and the reception was held at The Umstead in Cary, NC. Jenny and Kory were such a fun couple to work with and they were very open to ideas and suggestions about the wedding so we worked together over the past year to create exactly the vision they had for their perfect day. Some of the amazing details from this wedding include: a Gelato Bar from Sugarland bakery, a photobooth by Classic Carolina Photobooth, a cigar roller by Coastal Cigars out of Charleston, rented lounge furniture by Themeworks, a live ceremony painting by Tesh Parekh, a string quartet during the cocktail hour by Arioso Strings, and many other great items (listed or shown below).
I will really miss working with the Sasser family and Jenny and Kory but I am so happy to call them my friends now! Thank you to Jenny for the wonderful review she wrote about her experience working with A Southern Soiree on Google:
“Our wedding on July 30, 2011 at Edenton Street UMC and reception at The Umstead Hotel & Spa was one of the best days of our lives! We started working with Megan last August and she helped us every step of the way and I cannot imagine planning it without her! She helped us with everything – hiring vendors, making appointments, timelines, ideas, you name it! Megan was always several steps ahead of us so we didn’t have to worry about a thing! If we ever had a concern, question, or problem Megan was always available to lend a helping hand. Hiring Megan was truly the best wedding decision we ever made! We love Megan and A Southern Soiree!”
Here are some of my favorite images of the day captured by Shane Snider Photography:
