I am so excited to finally bring this beautiful, classic, black tie wedding at the Norfolk Yacht and Country Club to the blog! As soon as I met Meredith, I knew this wedding would be one for the books! She has such a chic style and is incredibly detail-oriented, so I knew her wedding day style would be nothing short of perfect.
Meredith and Erik actually spent most of their engagement apart, and I don’t mean a couple of hours. For the last year, Erik has lived in China for work while Meredith held things down at home in Charleston, South Carolina. This means that any time they got to actually spend together was intentional and meaningful. When this time together was finally their wedding week, I know that they couldn’t have been any more excited!
Meredith’s vision came together flawlessly at the Norfolk Yacht and Country Club thanks to incredible florals, ceremony draping, and beautiful gold chivari chairs. I’ve never seen the Club look so good! More importantly, though, there were so many meaningful moments and fun personal details! Meredith and Erik used a vintage cake topper that also sat atop her maternal grandparents’ wedding cake. Don’t miss those little figurines below – they are so unique and adorable! And I can’t ignore the late-night snack! There was never a doubt that they would have Krispy Kreme donuts at the wedding. Growing up, Meredith’s dad would always get a dozen hot Krispy Kreme’s for breakfast when they vacationed in the Outer Banks. But why stop at just the donuts? Her dad may have frequented a few different Krispy Kreme stores in the months leading up to the wedding to get enough hats for all of their guests! There is nothing better than everyone wearing Krispy Kreme hats with their most gorgeous gowns!
Congratulations, Meredith and Erik! I hope marriage [and your honeymoon in Greece] has been all that you’ve dreamt of and more so far! Luckily, this isn’t goodbye – we’ll be a part of Meredith’s sister’s wedding in June!
