On Saturday May 21, William and Whitney wed at the Light Horse Plantation in Burlington, NC. It was looking to be a cloudy and rainy day, but the weather ended up holding off right in time for the beautiful ceremony. The ceremony was set to kick off at 5 pm. At about 4:30 we kept a good eye on the weather and saw that rain would be hitting us at right about 5 pm. After Jenn consulted with the bride on whether to move the wedding inside or not, the bride decided that she was going to get married outside and did not care if we moved the time up. So from then, we quickly got everything ready and got everyone seated and at 4:45, the ceremony began outside with the Bride walking at 4:56pm. The Ceremony was over within 15 minutes and by 5:25pm as the wedding party began photos the sprinkles began followed by a quick thunder-shower.
From then on, everyone was as happy as they could be with great food, desserts, and music. With the help of our walkie- talkies, we were able to make sure things ran smoothly. With someone in the ballroom, parking lot, lobby, and hallways at all times, nothing went out of place.
The bride’s taste was very simplistic and the flowers were very bright and colorful. The centerpiece on each table was a tall vase that featured greenery at the bottom and a white flower bloom at the top. The color scheme of the wedding was navy blue and coral to go with the bridal party’s attire. The venue was very rustic and southern, yet classy and tasteful to fit right in with the bride and groom’s personality.
Throughout the wedding day, getting there early to set up and being one of the last ones to leave, I learned a lot about weddings from that being my first one to work. I learned that it takes a lot of hard work to make sure a wedding runs smoothly and to make sure any hiccup go unnoticed. But the good vibes of the wedding outweigh the bad any day. Making sure a bride and groom’s wedding day is the best day of their life makes it worth it when you see how happy they are with how everything turned out.
