Abby & Derek Tie "the Knot"

Posted to: Weddings by Kelli Harrison on Aug 28, 2014

Catering Works was recently featured in The Knot Magazine Carolinas edition for the wedding of Abby and Derek on September 28th, 2013. Consequently, Abby works at The Knot in New York and we were honored to be chosen for their wedding based on client reviews and recommendations. I had the pleasure to meet Abby, Derek and their families in March 2013 on a trip from NYC to NC look at their venue. Over the next 7 months, we would work together on multiple site reviews, tastings and rental appointments.

Their wedding was held The Springs Clubhouse at The Springs at High Rock Lake in Denton, North Carolina. The Springs Clubhouse is a unique neighborhood clubhouse for group events. With its oak flooring, beautiful arched ceilings, large fireplace and spectacular views of the High Rock Lake, it was a romantic and intimate landscape for their wedding ceremony and reception with their closest friends.

At last the day arrived! It was a gorgeous, clear day with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. The ceremony would take place shortly before sunset on the spacious covered porch followed by cocktail hour.

The flower arrangements had pops of pink and greens and varied in size by table. Dramatic taller style arrangements with curly willow, hydrangea, stargazer, roses and greenery with cascading greens were encircled by bud vases that incorporated the same romantic blooms.

Smaller composed arrangements flanked by frosted votive globes created a soft glow as the evening went on.  The Ivory Rosette linens and satin napkins added elegance and sophistication to the table.





What an AMAZING day! Congratulations to Abby and Derek.
