Lilla and David’s wedding was classically beautiful. Sophie and I enjoyed spending time with their friends and family all weekend and I think their photos portrayed what a wonderful weekend it was. She had a team of amazing vendors that made the day flow seamlessly and everything turned out to be so pretty.
Her day started out at the Chancellors House Hotel, which made a beautiful backdrop for her detail and preparation shots.
“David and I met in Charlotte, NC where we live now. We met through mutual friends who all happened to be going to this charity event called the Quail Hollow Ball. We met and talked for a little while that night, and then kept running into each other with these same friends!” – Lilla
“My roommate and I had one of our friends in town visiting “for work.” We started the day off with a great brunch and then our friend Frances suggested for us all to go get blow outs. This was not out of the ordinary because Frances gets a blow out once a week… My roommate Abby and I had plan to have a Christmas party at our house that night. I had made a Facebook group and invited everyone. Meanwhile our friends Blair and Drew asked us to go get a drink with them before. I am not dressed and ready for the party yet, but just leave quickly and planned to get ready afterwards. As I am getting in David’s car Frances says don’t you want to go ahead and put on your cute outfit and I say no and leave. Not to mention the outfit I have on is black leggings with a big blue PUFFY vest…. I hadn’t pulled that out in 5 years but this was the day I decided to wear it. I was clueless… We pull up to the Duke Mansion to look at Christmas lights, and I am walking through the gardens and I look back and David is down on one knee. Our friends Drew and Blair were hiding in the bushes taking pictures. I will now always listen to Frances when she tells me to change clothes.” – Lilla on the propsal
“It started down pouring about 30 minutes before the wedding, and to get into the front of the church you have to go outside. So the wonderful ladies of One Fine Day had about six umbrellas over my dad and I to get us into the church.” -Lilla
“EVERYTHING was amazing!!! Taylor Square was AMAZING! We had 16 bridesmaids and 16 groomsmen and taking pictures was a breeze! The whole wedding party bragged on how easy and quick they made it! Keith Winchester is a dear family friend who is so talented! The flowers were one of my favorites parts of the night! The flower wall behind the cake was insane! I trusted him so much we never once discussed flowers or anything. I let him do what he thought was best! The food was wonderful!! A Party Waiting to Happen are also good friends of ours. They are so fun to work with and make some delicious food!” – Lilla
“The planning of it all with One Fine Day made it so easy. The weekend of, I would ask for something or make sure something was done and they would say already taken care of that. They were on the ball!” – Lilla
“Our wedding day was the best!!! David and I keep reliving it in our minds over and over! Our favorite parts were our worlds colliding with each other and just looking out and seeing all of our friends and family having a blast together. It was so special!” -Lilla
Lilla and David, thank you so much for allowing us to share such a fun day with you! We had such a great time and we wish you much love and happiness on your future! – Ann-Marie
