Melissa & Corey's St. Paddy's Day Wedding

As I continue to develop my skills as a wedding planner, I've had some incredible, established planners and coordinators walking beside me to help me grow and learn. And while I normally try to shadow other wedding planners, the venue coordinator of River Ridge Golf Club, Miranda Day, gave me the opportunity to assist her with a lovely wedding this St. Patrick's Day. Being able to see firsthand the differences between the roles of a day of wedding coordinator and a venue coordinator was priceless, and I was still able to hone in my attention to detail and care for the client.

Melissa and Corey Green were married at the historic Dinwiddie Chapel on Peace University's campus, and then hosted their reception at the River Ridge Golf Club in Raleigh, NC. The reception space was decorated elegantly with touches of green - both for their name and the date of their wedding - and the guests and bridal party were nearly all dressed with the color of the day. This fun-loving couple couldn't stop laughing and smiling throughout the day, and their close friendship with each other was brilliantly apparent.

It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this wedding day, from setting up place settings and minor decor to pouring champagne for toasts and working with the other amazing vendors on site. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Green - "Love, life and happiness; may your troubles be few and your blessings plenty."
