Kind Words…

“I had the most amazing, stress free, smooth running wedding I could ever imagine. I am a huge procrastinator and decided to get married at my parents home. Most thought this was the perfect recipe for disaster. Not with Meris, she kept me on task and made the tasks simple. I never got overwhelmed with the process. Her organization made me calm. In the beginning of the planning process I did not have a clear vision of the event I wanted and I can say firmly there is NO WAY it would have come together without Meris. Oh and as a bonus try to get her husband Paul there if you can! He was super handy and stepped it up on the day of. I had an amazing experience and am sure my sister will be calling Meris when it’s time for her big day.” – Jillian Gillespie

Candace + Steve – A Wedding at the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum

Candace and Steve were lucky enough to be the first couple EVER to tie the knot at the new Blowing Rock Art and History Museum. What an incredible space!!!
We could not have asked for a more beautiful October day. The Whole Shebang worked closely with the wonderful BRAHM staff and Gadabouts Catering to turn Candace’s dream a reality.

Steph + Savva – A Wedding at the ASU Solarium

Recent Appalachian State University Grads Stephanie and Savva decided to use the Solarium in the Student Union of their alma mater to host their wedding reception after getting married at the 1st Baptist Church in Boone (a short block away).
I was thrilled to be on board with this wedding not only because Stephanie was possibly the sweetest bride I’ve ever worked with but also because I was able to work with the lovely miss Julia Wade again. You can check out some of her photography below.
PS – This “Getaway Car” was the same one her parents used when they got married. How amazing is that???
