Bygone Bride | Mrs. Kirby

Kim and Ryan were married at our Pavilion venue this past August. It was one of the many weddings we had to move inside last summer but regardless of the weather the day turned out beautifully! All of the day's prettiness really shows through in the images below from Kelly Hill of Grace Hill Photography.

We love how Kim incorporated fruit into her décor!

This 4-tiered beauty from Karen's Cakes was one of our favorites from 2013!

This was supposed to be where Kim & Ryan's nuptials took place but Mother Nature had a different plan.





This dance floor stayed packed all night!



Below are Kim's thoughts on her special day......

What was the best memory from your wedding day?  

After staring out the window all day in the bridal room wondering if the rain would end, we finally made the decision to move the ceremony inside. While it was not what I had planned and envisioned, when I walked out of the bridal room and down the isle to meet Ryan standing at the beautifully lit fireplace, suddenly I forgot about the rain and it didn't seem to matter. What mattered most was that look on his face as I turned the corner. It was unforgettable!

Why did you chose The Arbors Events to host your big day? 

I knew I always wanted to get married outside. After researching local farms in the Charlotte region I loved the classy yet country style of The Arbors. I also loved the fact that it had the option for the outdoor ceremony and indoor reception hall. Then I saw pictures from a friend's wedding who got married there in June 2012 and they [the pictures] confirmed that I wanted to get married there.
What advice to you have for brides who are currently planning their wedding? 
Hire a wedding planner! Hiring Heidi Crowder with Carolina Weddings and Events was the best decision I made. It was so helpful to have someone who could answer all my wedding questions, and she made sure everything went smooth for the wedding day. When we had to switch to Plan B due to rain, she and her team worked swiftly to make it beautiful. A wedding planner is a must!
Where do you see you and your new husband in 5 years?
Definitely settled down in the country with one or two kids!

We absolutely agree with Kim on the aspect of hiring a wedding planner! We also offer planning and coordination packages to all of our brides. Hiring our team can be one of the most beneficial things you can invest in! If you are an Arbors bride debating hiring someone for Day-Of Coordination, Partial Coordination, or Full Planning and Coordination please contact our on-site coordinator, Brandy Childs, to discuss!
