Zingraff-Parrish Wedding Reception

14 Jun

We’ve  had another busy weekend at Haywood  Hall.  On Saturday, we hosted the wedding reception of Meredith Parrish and Owen Zingraff.  Both the bride and groom are originally from Raleigh, and our gardens were filled with their family and friends who came to celebrate their marriage.

Although I did not get many photographs from the event, I do want to share a few that showcase the beautiful flowers and wedding cake.  The Watered Garden Florist handled all of the flowers and the hanging votives in the magnolia tree and gazebo.  The cake was made by Blue Moon Bakery.

Capps-Jones Wedding

12 Jun

Helping Russ and Morgan plan their wedding has been an absolute delight.  Both of their families have been actively involved in wedding plans, and I have come to know them so well that they feel like old friends.  Morgan’s mother, Sandy Partin, arranged all of the flowers and proved to be a first-rate wedding planner.  Russ’s father spent two days working in the gardens to make just the light display was perfect.  All of their work resulted in a beautiful ceremony and reception.

Harrel-Gurley Wedding

7 Jun

Congratulations to John and Sara, who were married here at Haywood Hall today.  Earlier this spring, Sarah’s photographers, Ray Price and Doug Coates of On Three Creative Studio, came to Haywood Hall for a bridal session.  Today they displayed Sara’s gorgeous portrait in the parlor with the wedding cake.  The cake,made by Sara’s friend Virginia Wallace, proved to be extremely popular with wedding guests.  Not only was it pretty, but it tasted delicious!

Andrako-Duffie Wedding Reception

7 Jun

Everything seemed to fall in place perfectly for Matt Andrako and Laura Duffie’s wedding reception.  Even the gardens cooperated as our hydrageas were in full bloom and beautifully complemented the blue hydrangeas they had selected for their centerpieces and the bouquets.  Caffe Luna catered the reception while Sweet Memories provided the cake.  The floral displays were designed by Fleurtations.

After their wedding ceremony in a local church, Matt and Laura arrived at Haywood Hall in a horse-drawn carriage.  Guests gathered in front of the house to welcome them and blew bubbles to usher Matt and Laura down the front walkway.

The couple ended the evening with another of downtown Raleigh’s signature modes of transportation — Raleigh Rickshaw.  Friends followed them out front, took photographs, and waved goodbye as the newlyweds departed.
