  1. Hire Local Vendors Leverage the rich vendor network in North Carolina. From florists and photographers to caterers and musicians, and of course a local NC weding planner, explore local talent to add a touch of regional flair to your wedding.

  2. Incorporate North Carolina Flavors Showcase the state’s culinary delights by incorporating local flavors into your menu. Consider a barbecue feast, fresh seafood, or even a wedding cake inspired by regional specialties.

  3. Embrace Southern Hospitality Infuse your wedding with the warmth of Southern hospitality. Consider welcome bags for guests, personalized touches, and thoughtful gestures to make everyone feel at home.

  4. Capture the Scenery Take advantage of North Carolina’s diverse landscapes in your wedding photography. Work with your photographer to identify scenic locations for memorable shots, whether it’s in the Blue Ridge Mountains or along the Outer Banks.

  5. Plan for Comfort Given the potential for varying weather conditions, plan for guest comfort. Provide shade, heaters, or fans as needed, and communicate dress code expectations to ensure everyone is appropriately attired.

  6. Include Local Traditions Explore local wedding traditions or customs that resonate with you. Whether it’s incorporating a specific dance, ceremony ritual, or folklore, these touches can add a unique and meaningful element to your celebration.

  7. Create a Timeline Work with your NC wedding planner to create a detailed timeline for the wedding day. This ensures that all events unfold smoothly and allows you to relax and enjoy the celebrations.

I don’t think there’s enough stars to rate ARH events. Amy was so pleasant to work with and made planning my wedding a breeze. She handled everything from start to finish and made me be able to relax with a smile on my face for my special day. If you are looking for a wedding planner , look no further. Amy is your girl, you won’t be disappointed!

My partner and I both found Amy to be extraordinarily competent, diligent, professional and pleasant to work with, the perfect "month of" coordinator for our needs. We had done a large amount of planning on our own prior to engaging Amy, and Amy stepped in seamlessly to pick up on and expand upon what we had already done. Amy invested the time necessary to understand and appreciate our vision for our wedding. Her knowledge and comfort level with all aspects of wedding planning and vendor coordination were quite evident; she was a source of reassurance and added substantial value. On the day of our wedding, Amy was completely on the ball, took charge in the most appropriate manner, and executed efficiently. All in all, Amy wonderfully fulfilled her role and gave us what I think we all want from a coordinator: the ability for the bride and groom to truly relax, be in the moment, and not worry about any of the logistics. Five stars! 🙂

Amy was such a blessing for our wedding. We loved her energy. She was right there with anything and everything we needed even if we didn’t know we needed it. She is very well organized before hand and the day of. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to fill the role.
