Megan & Phil had a romantic wedding ceremony at Myers Park UMC in Charlotte. It went perfectly with the classic feel of the wedding. A really fun tradition from Myers Park UMC is to decorate a whimsical statue of Hugh McManaway’s. It is such a fun way to let everyone know – MEGAN & PHIL got married!
Megan & Phil had a beautiful ceremony in which both ____ and ____ married them and told stories about them.
Once the guests began to make their way to the reception we had time with Megan & Phil at the church to create these beautiful images.
The reception for Megan & Phil’s elegant wedding was held at The Duke Mansion. I will admit I am a little obsessed with the checkered floor and I love chiavari chairs (since we had them at our wedding too). Megan & Phil were able to carry out their color palette at their engagement session CLICK HERE and throughout their wedding. The candy station was a big hit and I thought it was a great idea to use the design on the food for the sit down dinner on the place cards – isn’t the little chicken cute?
Love the lace!
The cake topper was Megan’s grandparents’ from their wedding which added a cute vintage feel. One cake tradition that Megan & Phil had was each having different charms hidden into the wedding cake.
Lucky Charms: Although the custom of adding gold or silver charms into a beautiful cake is usually reserved for showers, it is such a darling tradition, we felt we would be remiss in leaving it out. Each charm baked into the cake has a special meaning attached. The meanings behind cake charms are traditionally: heart for true love, ring for upcoming engagement, clover, shamrock or horseshoe for luck, flower for growing love, wishing well for wishes granted, anchor, airplane or ship’s wheel for travel and adventure, highchair or baby carriage for children, rocking chair for long life, coin purse or money bag for good fortune, wedding bells for upcoming marriage, telephone for good news, and picture frame for happy life.
The Trolley is so cute!
