Sophisticated Winter Wedding at Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC – Emilie and Chase

After attending a lot of sunny, warm summer weddings, January could have scared off less adventurous, optimistic couples than Emilie and Chase. But for this chic and stylish pair, it inspired a wedding filled with wintery sparkles in a striking art museum venue. Key to making this cold winter month work was warming up their guests with a rockin’ band that was hot all night. The happy couple’s reward for giving January a chance? A blissful 65 degree day!

The Couple: Emilie and Chase

The Wedding: 1.28.12 – Charlotte, N.C.

What three adjectives best describe your wedding? Fun, chic and fancy

What was your wedding color palette? The basic color palette was deep purple, chocolate brown and winter white, with some sparkle thrown in. These shades were inspired by a peacock feather we used for the “save the dates.”

What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? I was not one of those girls who had my wedding planned out for years. Ive seen a lot of beautiful weddings in outdoor venues with romantic color palettes and brides in boots, but this was not me! I wanted the feel of our wedding to be current, sophisticated and unique, while also embracing the month of January. We have been to so many spring and summer weddings and wanted to have an event to remember, which is why we chose January in the first place! Plus, the fact that we had a 65 degree sunny day was awesome.


What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? Hire a planner! You will undoubtedly be less stressed the weeks leading up to the big day. Not having to fool around with vendors, contracts and logistics the weekend of the wedding was priceless! Also, unless you have a very specific venue or time of year in mind, you really dont need more than eight months to prepare.

Grand Entrance Ideas???

by FWhates

The bridge, you know, where she and I enter the reception and the wedding party hold there hands up and we walk under them, well my FW thinks its played out and tacky and I kinda agree with her.
Problem is, we are both having a hard time coming up with something unique or more original.
Anyone have ideas for the bride and grrom entering the reception that is a little more fun or unique.
We are having a nice NY wedding, not over the top, but it will be a fun day and we are down to earth fun people.

Has anyone been to a wedding ceremony at

by JoaquinMillerCascades?

I love the park and think it's beautiful but kinda confused as to where the aisle would be and where the party would walk in. There is a large round waterfountain at the base of the cascades. Would the wedding party walk down the stairs that flank the cascades or is there another entrance?
Also had a question about the Joaquin Miller Community Center. The Center's surroundings is gorgeous but the center itself is kinda blah. Has anyone been to reception there and got ideas on how to make it more festive?
Thanks all!!

If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
