Bridal Buzz- Bay 7

We had a great time at The Bridal Buzz show this past February. The bridal show took place at one of our favorite reception venues in Durham, Bay 7. This gorgeous venue was the perfect spot for a bridal show all about “the urban chic bride.” Thanks to Dara Blakeley Photography for this shot of our booth.  
This was for the “urban chic” bride. It was such a fantastic group of vendors who brought style and creativity to this stunning show!

We met such wonderful brides and cannot wait to work with you!

For our booth design we wanted our booth be natural tones and textures, that also our found in our logo and on our website.  I love working with Neutral tones like tans, cremes, browns, and greens. It is so important to mix different textures in this palate so that it is interesting to the eye. I found these fabulous chandeliers from Anthopoligie and these flowers were created by the English Garden.

I can’t wait for next year!

xoxo, Erin

Bay 7 Wedding

Jordan and Mindy were married in the heart of downtown Durham at Bay 7 this past September. Bay 7 is a popular wedding venue, as it offers a chic urban backdrop for wedding ceremonies and receptions. This turned out to be the perfect venue for the ceremony and reception of photographers Jordan and Mindy who wanted to mix fun, whimsical aspects with traditional elements for a memorable day that was truly their own.
The groom and his groomsmen all sported colorful Converse sneakers with vibrant matching ties.
Mindy and Jordan chose to see each other before the ceremony. This romantic moment allows the bride and groom time to connect before their big moment. Plus it makes for some really sweet photographs thanks to JAGG Photography.
The bride and groom found these vintage doors at an antique shop. Decorated with gorgeous floral wreathes they make the perfect backdrop for their ceremony. After the wedding Jordan and Mindy are using these in their home. What a creative way to remember their wedding day.
Greg Warren Flowers created these beautiful bouquets for Mindy and her bridesmaids. They are the perfect colorful contrast against the bridesmaids’ classy little black dresses.

When Jordan proposed to Mindy he first gave her a ring pop before presenting the real ring. As a surprise for Jordan at the end of the ceremony, Mindy had the ring bearer come back down the aisle with ring pops for both her and Jordan. What a sweet surprise!
Mindy and Jordan didn’t want a particular color scheme. Rather, they wanted to let their creative and fun loving side show by incorporating a variety of colors into both their wedding and reception. From the vivid bridesmaids’ bouquets and wild flower centerpieces to the eye-catching candy bar, pops of color were carried throughout Mindy and Jordan’s big day.

The idea of featuring several smaller cakes of different flavors with complimentary designs is a growing trend among brides and their wedding guests who love the delicious dessert options.
Bay 7’s prime location in the historic district of Downtown offers a great location for some amazing photography of this Durham wedding.

Keeping with their fun colorful theme, the bride and groom had a balloon send off from their reception.

Congratulations Mindy & Jordan!
