French Mansion Fall Elegant Wedding

Over the past year of working with Jim and Nicole we have really gotten to know this perfectly matched couple!
From the moment we met these two, you can feel the chemistry they had for each other.  Nicole is a South Charlotte hair stylist, and Jim is a massage therapist. Nicole is a sweet and bubbly bride from New York. And Jim is a friendly and easy-going type of guy.
Nicole chose plum purple with accents of silver for her color scheme. Their ceremony and reception was held at Champagne Manor, just outside of Charlotte. The Champagne Manor is a lovely upscale wedding venue with a French flair located in Monroe, NC. With their lakeside pergola for the ceremony, the palm trees, and the French château, it makes for the perfect outdoor wedding venue. Here is a snapshot of their fabulous wedding day:

Nicole and Jim's 'flowery water-color with a translucent overlay' invitation was stunning!
And we just may be a little bit biased since she ordered her invitations from us :)

We love Nicole’s cascading luscious bouquet with purple orchids.

The moment a father waits his whole life for...

The ceremony took place at the lakefront altar. The pergola was decorated with gorgeous white draping decorated with a chandelier, and fresh snow-white rose petals scattered along both sides of the aisle.

The beautiful couple chose to do a butterfly release in honor of the bride’s mom. As the butterflies were let go, one butterfly lingered on Nicole's finger. It was a really emotional moment; a few tears were shed.

Mr + Mrs!

We ❤ the décor with real tree branches hanging with candle globes.

What a special touch for the assigned seating! These butterflies rested on the rims of the goblets of each guest with their names hand-written.

Dance time!

The perfect ending to the perfect day...

Congratulations Jim & Nicole, we had so much fun helping you plan your wedding and make it all come true, many blessings to you guys and your amazing family!
