Fabulous Friday: Crain – Richardson Wedding

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are all ready to enjoy your holiday weekend! Before I head out for a nice relaxing weekend with the family I wanted to share with you one of our beautiful weddings we have had here at The Laurels.  Kelly and Todd put a lot of faith in us when they booked the venue before we even had walls up! They knew they wanted it here and Kelly really wanted to be the first Bride to get married at The Laurels. We had such a good time planning their wedding with them as the construction of the venue was underway. It was sort of like our unofficial countdown to get the doors open! :)

Kelly and Todd got married in the courtyard as the sun was setting and it was such a beautiful ceremony.

Kelly wanted everything neutral and romantic so that is what we set out to do. The lace overlays and twinkling candles really gave her that romantic feel she wanted.

Our favorite cake ladies, Kay and Lisa did this stunning cake and we added all of the beautiful roses to it.

Cole photography was Kelly’s photographer and they got some beautiful shots of the venue and wedding that I want to share with you. My photos pale in comparison to her talents behind the camera. Thank you Jewel for this amazing images.

Fabulous Friday: The Laurels Grand Opening

Happy Friday everyone! I know it has been a while, a long while, and we are way overdue for a post. We have been so busy since moving into The Laurels. Our feet haven’t touched the ground since we started moving in in April. It has been such a blessing. I wanted to take a quick minute and share a few photos with you from our Grand Opening in May.

Starting off with our official welcoming crew.

Fabulous Friday: Welcome Lauren

Today closes a chapter in my life and opens another one. A huge one. A very exciting one! As you all know, this is Lauren by the way, I have been a part of K & K and The Laurels since the beginning. All along I have held a full time job as an Interior Designer at a local home remodel company while doing weddings and events on the weekends. Today is my last day at Carter and Company and after 10 years it is very bitter sweet. The people I have worked with have become family and I will miss them but I am more than ready! With the construction of The Laurels wrapping up it is time to jump in with both feet.  We are busier than ever with our brides and mix in the management of The Laurels it just makes sense to take this leap. I am excited to be able to show you all around The Laurels and to be able to focus more on our brides and clients. Not to mention helping Kathy with all of the everyday task that she constantly takes care.

So with that, I will give you a glimpse of some of the finishing touches we have been putting on The Laurels.
