You chose Southern Elegance as the theme!
Every Southern girl’s best day---candles, burlap, spring flowers and mason jars to fill the room and the tables. Flowers arranged in a variety of bottles and vases surrounded by votive candles to add the twinkle. A touch of girly, a touch of the rustic, and a touch of elegance done only as a Southern girl can do. The elegance shines through, just tied with a burlap bow.
You chose the Free For All Stations and the Simple and Elegant cake!
Wrapped in burlap and twine, and done with flowers in her colors, this simple cake will compliment but not over take her style.

Our very own Carletta Blake is getting married!
With her crazy schedule and too many choices to make, she needs help!
We thought about getting a wedding planner...but who knows her better than the people who listen every day?!
So...we need help from YOU to plan her wedding! You'll get to vote on the style of wedding, the dress she wears, the groom's attire, their wedding bands, the cake, and the food!
Each week starting April 8th, we'll put up three options for you to vote on from different vendors around Eastern NC. The option with the most votes will be included in the wedding! We'll also be talking to each vendor every Monday at 11am to hear about the different options!
Here's what you'll vote on!
Week of April 8th - Style of wedding from Olivia's at Frenchman's Creek in Kinston

What comes after a wedding? Why, a honeymoon, of course! With being so busy to plan the wedding, she definitely doesn't have time to go on a honeymoon, so we're sending you instead! Every time you vote, you'll be entered to win a trip to Savannah, GA for 4 romantic days including lodging at the Clubhouse Inn & Suites, horse and carriage ride, Blue Trolley Tour, passes on the Savannah River Queen Steamboat ride, and more!
Be sure to check back every week to vote on a different part of the wedding and to see what you voted for! The grand prize honeymoon winner will be announced Monday, May 5th!
