Gallagher-Sauve Wedding

23 May

Neal and Bethany refused to let rain damper their wedding festivities.  When the skies opened to a downpour of rain just an hour before the ceremony was to begin, they responded with good-natured flexibility.  They invited their guests inside the house and under the tent for a drink and delayed the ceremony by thirty minutes.  The guests enjoyed the opportunity to visit with each other and to tour the house, and the rains paused at exactly the right time.  We proceeded with the outdoor ceremony, and no one was bothered by a few showers during the tented reception.

The event was catered by Catering Works, who handled food, flowers, and cake.   Tracy Adams of Adams and Events directed the ceremony.

Haywood Hall Makes The Knot’s Best of 2010

24 Feb


Cover of The Knot magazine

Readers of The Knot wedding magazine have voted Haywood Hall as one of the top 25 wedding reception venues in North Carolina.  The announcement appears in spring/summer edition of The Knot North Carolina, which is now on newsstands. In a separate article, the issue also quotes local wedding planner Cara Zuehlke who names Haywood Hall as one of her favorite wedding and reception locations.

We want to thank our brides and supporters of Haywood Hall for voting for us.  We also want to thank Cara for giving us her nod of approval.  Haywood Hall depends primarily on word-of-mouth advertising, and this attention has been a big boost for us.
