A Classy-Chic Wedding for Kinsley and Wesley!

Kinsley and Wesley joined their friends and family at The RiverRoom on Friday, September 27th, 2013 to celebrate their special day! The ceremony took place outside on our deck- the weather couldn't have been better! The top of the deck was set up with seating for 70 and the bottom had 4 cocktail tables with bar stools! We wrapped the deck rails in burlap and topped it off with pretty bows!

The processional began and the viola played a melodious tune as the Bride and her father made their way down the aisle. Bernie McWilliams is a violinist who performs at many local wedding ceremonies! The flower girls-Kinsley and Wesley's daughters-were adorable. They truly are two peas in a pod! The ceremony was officiated by Kinsley's dear childhood friend, Adam!
Etc. Party Rentals added a special touch to the bistro tables by providing barstools for the guests. They also provided extra tables and chairs, linens and two cute kids' tables.
The reception followed soon after inside The RiverRoom. The color scheme of the night were neutrals- ivory, tan, lace, and burlap with some pops of teal! Burlap lined all of the tables as well as the centerpieces, which were mason jars filled with flower arrangements provided by Bloomer's Floral Designs.

An exquisite dinner and appetizers were prepared by Middle of the Island Catering, while Carolina Cakes and Confections provided a tastefully tempting white and teal cake for the bridal party and their guests. They cut the cake and listened to toasts around 8:00pm. Although Kinsley's maid of honor gave a beautiful toast, it was hard to beat the toast to a Method Man song quoted by one of Wesley's friends! Classic wedding moment! Grandma Toth was not expecting this! :)

Beer and wine was available at the bar and it was self serve. I loved this bar sign created by a handy family member! He made two ceremony signs; one pointing to the deck and towards The RiverRoom and the "pick a seat, not a side" sign.  Another local Wilmington bride got lucky and was given the sign to use for her ceremony the next day once Kinsley and Wesley were finished with it. Sometimes there's just no need to keep all of your extra wedding decorations after the wedding - spread the love to other brides! Love it! 
DJ Professionals brought out the country music and the guests danced the night away under elegant edison lights. We hung twice as many lights as usual and it sure did look beautiful! Kinsley and Wesley shared their first dance as husband and wife to "If I Didn't Have You" by Thompson Square. Kinsley also had a sweet dance with her father to Tracy Adkin's song, "Just Fishin'".

The Bride provided her own personal touches of decor, including the broach bouquet which her mother hand-crafted herself. As Kinsley's day-of coordinator, one of my task was setting up the room. It was so much fun to place all of Kinsley's mason jar centerpieces and accent vases, wrapped ever-so-perfectly in burlap and lace. We also assembled vases for the bartop with tree twigs and floating candles. I've seen this on Pinterest so I was happy to finally test it out! It looked simple and beautiful, by the way!
The guest book was an adorable wooden and burlap book. We placed it on a glass table near the entrance way atop a burlap and lace runner. The card box fit the look too!

To end this wonderful night, guests sent off the bride and groom with sparklers!

Congratulation Kinsley and Wesley! We loved getting to know you both! You are so madly in love and we are blessed to have been a part of such a special day!
