I’ve been a part of the wedding industry in Wilmington, NC since 2016 when I first moved here. It’s brought me into a network of really, really talented people who also work in the industry. It’s been really cool seeing what it’s like to enter a whole different state and see what the wedding world is like in a totally new place, and in the last 5 and a half years I’ve formed some amazing friendships with some of these people. Owning a business is really cool, but can be lonely working by yourself all the time – but when you’re at a wedding with these other vendors over and over again, it’s really fun. It’s like getting to work with your favorite coworkers but your coworkers change at every event. This specific group of individuals all came together in February to show off the new event space downtown on Water Street, Pavé. It’s the perfect size for a getting ready space for downtown brides, and walkable to most of the venues, as well. I get a LOT of downtown clients asking me if I know any nearby Airbnb’s so they can be walking distance to their venue, and I know this is now my first suggestion! We had a great group of people who all made this day come together, and of course, my dog, too. We wanted to showcase that Pavé is dog friendly, and I just so happen to have a VERY photogenic (albeit sassy) pup. So, check out Luna’s debut as a flower girl. It’s pretty adorable.
