We’ve all heard it said that it’s all in the details. Our bride, Emily, proved that to be true. From our first meeting together, we knew she had a very clear vision and her vision was spectacular! Emily was gorgeous in a strapless, lace gown with a delicate, sweetheart neckline. She was surrounded by her bridesmaids in dusty rose gowns and her dapper bridesmen in vests and floral ties that perfectly complimented the girls. Tyler looked especially handsome in his dove grey suit. His groomsmen wore a darker version of vests to go with their floral ties.
The 12-foot grazing table that Hobnob Occasions created was a highlight.The cheeses, spreads, breads, fruits and nuts were delicious, of course, but it was the communal experience that made the guests rave. The reception tables were decorated with a bounty of candlelight, dried hydrangeas, grasses and more of Emily’s creations: hand-folded book page flowers. At every place setting, was a miniature air plant framed in copper tubing, complete with instructions on proper care.
The Meadows was the location of this special event. It is 115 acres of nature preserve nestled into the heart of Raleigh, surrounded by fields and forest.
I can't recommend these ladies enough! Honestly, my only regret about my wedding was not relying on them more. We hired Hobnob as day-of coordinators, but they supported us throughout the entire process—or at least, as much as I let them 😉 If you're like me and have a hard time delegating, just know that you can absolutely trust Andrea, Kris and Trish to take any task/request and run with it. After stressing myself out over a million details leading up to the wedding, it was SUCH a relief when they forcefully (but lovingly) took everything out of my hands and made sure the day was flawless.
We were all blown away by their skill and attention to detail, and my mom was shocked—in the best possible way—when there was absolutely nothing for her to help with or worry about throughout the entire weekend. I'd been particularly nervous about how our grazing table would turn out, but Kris and her daughter knocked the display out of the park. Guests were raving about it for weeks!
I'm so grateful we had these ladies on our team, and I'm glad our venue *required* a DOC. At the start, I didn't want to pay someone to do a job I thought I could handle on my own. But 1) we NEVER would've been able to pull it off without them, and 2) I would've gladly paid their fee 2 or 3 times over had I known how much of an asset they'd be. We love these ladies so much—hiring them will be one of the best decisions you make for your event!
