Real Wedding: Ashlee + Max at White Memorial Presbyterian Church & Merrimon-Wynne

Ashlee & Max had one of the most fun weddings that I've ever planned or attended as a guest! They choose to do a social-style reception where we had all different sorts of seating instead of the traditional tables for a seated meal. We did a mixture of large round tables, cocktail tables, and bistro tables inside and outside of the Carriage House at the Merrimon-Wynne. They paired the style for the evening with food stations to keep their guests moving around and socializing from location to location! There weren't many moments where there wasn't someone on the dance floor! Their social-style reception worked flawlessly.

Although I loved the reception, my favorite part of the day was the time the full wedding party and family rode on the Trolley from White Memorial Presbyterian Church to the Merrimon-Wynne! Manny, the driver, had the bus pumping with jams and everyone was so happy. You could see the joy radiating off of Ashlee & Max's faces! I was lucky enough to get to ride along and we even decided to take the long way since we were ahead of schedule and they were enjoying it so much!

Ashlee & Max - I so enjoyed getting to know you over the planning process. You two are immensely caring individuals and I look forward to watching your life story unfold.

Cheers with all the champagne ;) Whitney

Thanks to all our awesome vendors!
