Childress Vineyards

Childress Vineyards

In August I had the pleasure of visiting a local vineyard, only 30 minutes from my home. I was invited to a local meetup of a group of travelers. I knew there were vineyards in my area but never really gave it much thought.

Although I was not there for any wedding related activites, I couldn’t help but think…. Oh this is such a great spot for a wedding and started seeking out the event room. 11914883_747079905396276_5813440119313715176_n

Can you say breathtaking. Not just the room but the whole property was just amazing. So much space. So many photos opps.


I can just imagine some beautiful photographs just using this walkway.
This would be a great idea for a bridal shower or engagement party. Pair it with the wine tours and tastings and you are gold. We were able to do both and have an amazing lunch at the end. Fantastic view, fun activity, learn about wine, have some samples and enjoy the food. A perfect evening. 11953025_10207265296849012_2106068768481304113_n
So if you have a theme wedding that includes Winery, Italian, Rustic, Greek, Enchanted Garden, Tuscan, California, Outdoor, Destination or just want to have an awesome location. Childress Vineyards is the way to go. If you are not in NC and you can’t have a Destionation wedding check out your local winery or one nearby.

Schedule a tour or stop by for some lunch but you will not be disappointed by this Winery. Oh! While you are there; check out the wine slushies and have a chocolate shot. 😉

Carnival in Venice- Inspiration Shoot-Jacksonville Wedding Planner|Theme Wedding

Carnivale_in_VeniceWe love doing inspiration shoots. This design concept I have been playing around with for ages. I wanted to use color that were not the “norm” colors. The bright bold colors set the scene off just perfect. You can’t do a theme wedding like this and not have a phenomenal cake. Brittany of Divine Indulgences Cake Design did a  perfect job executing a grand ball cake. Carnival_in_Venice


We just love working with Angie of S & A Weddings and Events… this is the fourth shoot we have done with her. She has a gift of taking your thoughts and creating stunning floral centerpieces. The last minute addition were the paper flowers from Qtsy Things which helped bring something different and unique to the table. We thank all the vendors to help pull off this shoot.
