  • Welcome to our blog!

    We are thrilled that you've taken the time to peruse our blog!

    Even for the most organized client, there are no substitutions for experience. Your own wedding or event should not be the test you give yourself to see if you can plan and design it alone....nor should you hand it off to your friends who seem to enjoy 'planning a party'. You only get one shot to make this perfect! Allow yourself to enjoy your wedding engagement or life outside of work as we keep you calm and on track {and on budget of course}, while we personalize a wedding or event far better than you can imagine.

    With over 30 years combined experience in the wedding industry, this team is known as the 'go-to-gals' if you want a unique and stylish wedding that has every detail and logistic executed in advance.

    Recently voted Charlotte's Best Overall Event Planner by Charlotte Wedding Magazine 'Best of Weddings' 2014.

Recessional Roulette

You’ve sat through the ceremony…quiet, reverent, hands holding your neatly folded program with the ever so perfectly tied bow…then, from the heavens above (ok just the speakers) our girl, the queen…..Beyonce….and her vocals ascending the altitudes with Love on Top.

YASSS honey!  They’re married and everyone is ready to party.

We encourage couples to find music for both ceremony and reception, that is reflective of their musical stylings and preferences.  Be unique!  Don’t feel like you have to stick to the same rendition of Canon in D that all of your other friends played.  Change it up a bit….yes, even in a church.   For my own wedding’s recessional we played Barry White’s You’re My First, My Last, My Everything (minus the long verbal intro)…in a Baptist church no less.  It’s a great burst of energy at this incredibly exciting time in your life, and in the day.  Surprise your guests and get them excited for a fun reception to follow.  Make your recessional a memorable one.

Here are some other suggestions from Pop Sugar and a few of our favorites below…

Creepy photo, but solid song.

We’re obsessed with Ray LaMontagne and have used this song for several first dances….but who’s to say you don’t recess with it too.

Anything JT we’re down for….and RIP MJ
