McAlister-Leftwich Wedding Vendor Showcase

We hosted our first ever Wedding Vendor Showcase on January 12th and it was such a beautiful and inspiring day! We invited a handful of the best wedding designers and vendors in our area to contribute to one of our three areas: the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Each team brought their A game and all of the guests got to see the beauty firsthand!

A big, big thank you to all of the vendors who contributed to the Showcase and to all of the guests who attended!

Get ready…this is a long one! But it was impossible to narrow down the images. They are just THAT good. So if you couldn’t be with us at the Showcase this is the next best thing!

The Ceremony

Planner + Event Designer: A Touch Of Southern | Florist: Sedgefield Florist | Furniture Rentals: Eventful NC | Paper Goods + Signage: Happy Tines

They braved the cold and warmed up the space by mixing in upholstered pieces with our in-house folding Fruitwood chairs. They chose to use our “Garden Nook” ceremony location, which is the perfect option when a backdrop (like the fireplace) is part of the design! Guests were able to browse this sweet setup as they entered the Showcase.

The Cocktail Hour

Designer + Planner: Marla Lawson Events | Florist: Flora Wedding & Event Flowers | Catering: 1618 On Location | Rentals: Greenhouse Picker Sisters | Bar Rental + Ghost Chairs + Columns: Party Reflections | Linens: Party Tables | Drink Signage and Escort Cards: Happy Tines

If you thought one bar was beautiful in our bay window, wait until you see how good TWO looks! After guests checked-in, they headed to the bar to try a custom cocktail and appetizers by 1618 On Location. Marla did what Marla does best – super inventive designs! Paired with the amazing floral work by Andraya of Flora, everything was simply perfect. Greenhouse Picker Sisters’ unique lounge vignettes were a hit and it was fun to see people sit and dream about what the house could look like for their wedding or event!

The Reception

Event + Floral Design + Planner: Rebecca Rose Events | Cake + Dessert Bar: Artsy Cakesy | Rentals: Party Reflections | Linen + Furniture Rentals: Nuage Designs | Furniture: Greenhouse Picker Sisters | Paper Goods + Signage: Happy Tines

As you entered our signature tiled hallway, you got a little glimpse of the beauty that was waiting inside of the Gant Room in McAlister. Rebecca Rose Events created the most dreamy reception space! The RRE team is so extremely talented and truly an inspiration in this industry. We are so in love with this design they brought to life with their team! (I mean, those desserts from Artsy Cakesy…can you even handle it?!)
