Planner's Notes:

Nena's goal was to create something soft, organic and neutral with pops of gold. We wanted to embrace the rustic elements of Seven Springs without making it feel cheesy or too trendy. We rented vintage furniture from Paisley + Jade to bring visual interest and Amanda Burnette created lush table scapes (and an ombre floral curtain for the photo booth) to soften the space. The weather in May was amazing and Seven Springs was an amazing backdrop.

Hire Wood Grain & Lace! Do NOT try to plan & execute your wedding vision alone.
Where do I begin? Christine is super fun! It’s refreshing to work with someone that is straight forward and down to earth, yet totally gets your vision and your need for everything to be perfect. She was super helpful during the planning process ensuring that we stayed on track with tasks and offering suggestions as we thought through various things. She would also tell us when things didn’t make sense or wouldn’t be the best use of our money, which I totally appreciate! When we struggled making decisions, she took the time to go through all of the options (including creating multiple tablescape versions) so that we could find what was best for us. She even helped snag some hard-to-find items we needed at the last minute and helped to ensure our rehearsal dinner was a success. I can’t say enough about how awesome my daughter’s wedding was and I know it couldn’t have been possible without Christine & her assistant. Thank you ladies!!

We hired Christine after an in person consultation and were so happy with our decision. She was personable, organized, and really knew her stuff. From start to finish she always had great advice and kept us on track as we neared the big day. On the wedding day she made sure everything went smoothly. I am a complete perfectionist and control freak and I had nothing to worry about with Christine and team in charge. Do not make the mistake so many brides make and try to do it on your own. Hire Wood Grain and Lace to take care of all your wedding needs and you’ll have a stress free wedding day.
