This Mother’s Day weekend was full of some crashing – wedding crashing of a hometown friend and house crashing on a Charlotte garden tour. By crashing, I mean that we were legitimately invited to the events, but I’m sharing the details/pretty things that I found along the way. We didn’t really crash this wedding, although Scott did eat his weight in crab cakes. It’s not a wedding without crab cakes, right?
We attended a lovely wedding this weekend for a girl from my hometown. The weather was pretty dicey in the days leading up to the event, but the clouds parted just in time to shine some gorgeous sunshine on this stunning setting.

Freaking. Stunning. I loved my wedding, but after seeing this setting, I considered asking Scott to do the whole thing over again. Just check out the view from the reception area – could this be out of a movie? Possibly the infamous Dirty Dancing? I think so.
The bride did a great job of choosing simple yet unique centerpieces. She used the somewhat typical hydrangeas and cala lilies, but the way they were arranged for the centerpieces was really whimsical.
The bridesmaids also had simple bunches of hydrangeas that gave the wedding a sweet, springy feel. They created the perfect backdrop for a sweet first dance with the newlyweds.
My parents were in town for the wedding, as well as for a Mother’s Day centered weekend. Just for good measure, check out a picture of the fam, drinks in hand. First order of business at a wedding is hitting up the free wine and gin & tonics, and soaking in the beautiful North Carolina weather. Nothing better, right?
Stay tuned for some fancy shmancy Charlotte garden crashing soon!
