Meredith and Chris: Fall Haw River Ballroom wedding

Meredith and Chris’s wedding was my first wedding back from my maternity leave and boy was it a beautiful celebration!

Meredith and I met back at Meredith College during our college years, and quickly became friends again through our involvement in an orphan care/adoption book club that I hosted.  Meredith is an amazing lady who has such a passion for caring for the orphaned and fatherless.  She has been a wonderful support and friend to me throughout our adoption journey.   She also has an amazing design eye (being previously in the interior design world) and she had amazing wedding design ideas! So, when she asked me to be her planner & designer, I was thrilled!

And then, one day, she met Chris, through their involvement in Vintage Church of Raleigh.  Chris is such a great match for Meredith – he loves coffee and is a foodie (a must for Meredith) and has a heart for others that matches Meredith's.  It was a sweet journey to watch them fall in love and get married last fall!  You can probably tell from the pictures that Chris adores his sweet lady, and rightly so!

Meredith and Chris used vibrant fall colors of vintage reds, blues, and gold, and even pulled in his family’s Scottish plaid into the design!  We had a blast picking out accessories from Greenhouse Picker Sisters inventory to give the wedding design just the vintage and family feel that we were wanting. 

The wedding was held at the beautiful Haw River Ballroom – the hipster musician’s wife in me was drooling. I mean isn’t this place so romantic?  I even saw a couple get engaged here while I was setting up on Friday.  Amazing.   If you are looking for a wonderful venue full of character and old history, this is it!

Can’t wait to see the life that Meredith and Chris get to live together – I’m sure it will be full of adventure, adopted babies J, and sweet time together.
