2013 Festival of Flowers

Oyster Roast 

UNCW Watson School of Education 

Stellar Events' final event of the week was the Oyster Roast designed by the talented Matthew Robbins and Fiore Fine Flowers!  Due to some weather issues we had to change the location of the event last minute, but we were lucky enough to be able to use the beautiful Watson School of Education on the campus of UNCW.  

This building is a beautiful construction with high vaulted ceilings, huge glass windows, exposed metal beams and a beautiful stone floor.  The feel inside was as if you were outside on the street!  There were permanent fixtures on the main floor that were "education" related including old classroom desks and school bus seats which added extra stress trying to figure out how to hide them or work them into the design.  However, in the end everyone pulled together and the venue was transformed into a southern chic oyster roast and BBQ!  

The nights entertainment was provided by the talented Jack Jack 180 and they kept the party rockin' until the end!  Here are a few of our favorite pictures from the evening!!

Simple & Elegant Invitations

Last week we sent out a beautiful set of wedding invitations for some of our clients!  The lovely couple is getting married here in Wilmington, NC this March.  The countdown to the big day is on!  

These invitations came out perfectly!  They are so simple, yet so elegant at the same time.  The invitations were done by the wonderful Mindy & Angie's Fine Paper and they delivered as always!  

The invitation set was simple consisting of the invitation on a flat ivory cardstock.  The invitation was printed in a beautiful charcoal grey with the names printed in a shimmery gold.  The beautiful mix of print and script added a beautiful touch of elegance.  The script at the top of and the bottom of the invitation frame the information perfectly.  We love the ampersand on the invitation as well, beautiful touch!

The R.S.V.P. card was just as simple and again the script on the card is beautiful.  The font mirrors the invitation as well to allow it to tie in together!  We also love the option of "will happily attend" because it adds a bit more playfulness to an already sophisticated invitation.

The Wedding Details card was beautiful as well and didn't overload the guest with too much information.  Sometimes these cards get a bit too busy so we love that this was kept simple and clean with the important details listed.  We think the flourish that separates the Ceremony & Reception information is lovely, it's one of our favorites!  Our favorite part is the note at the bottom - "No gifts please.  Your presence is present enough."  Such as sweet request from such a lovely couple!!  

We are so looking forward to this beautiful wedding!!  It's going to be a wonderful night and it's coming up, right around the corner!!

Jeanie & Jimmy | Part 1

Jimmy & Jeanie are such a fun couple! They came to me, slightly bruised, from their previous wedding coordinator. I could tell they were leery to start the planning/design process from scratch but I promised them a few things - this would be FUN, we could do A LOT with their budget and it would be FUN!

They jumped on board and never looked back. We had a blast planning and designing! Every time I talked to Jeanie I could hear her bursting at the seams with joy and excitement. The big day arrived and it did not disappoint! It was gorgeous and filled with love and joy.

Many thanks to a wonderful and talented team who made this event a success!
