Fuse'd Feature: Ultra Glam meets Romantic chic at Normandy Farms

Glamorous. Chic. Unique. When we heard Christina and Joe's wedding style descriptors, we knew it was a match made in heaven! Christina and Joe not only wanted their wedding to represent their vision and style, they wanted it done in unexpected ways. We drew inspiration from the romantic yet modern architecture and styling in the gorgeous ballroom at Normandy Farms to help bring Christina and Joe's stylings to life. We HAVE to throw a shout out to Christina's mom, Mary, for being one of the most fun MOBs we have ever worked with --- her creativity and organization skills were top notch and made us even jealous she wasn't a member of the FUSE team :) The ceremony space was transformed to highlight Christina and Joe's vision of chic glam with an amazing structural piece featuring lighting, crystals and flowers by Beautiful Blooms set in front of their gorgeous draping. When Wise Image started snapping photos of the stunning couple, it was as if Christina and Joe were professional wedding models! Every photo looked better and better, and Wise Image used their creative edge to capture the emotions and feels of the day. We felt so honored to be a part of Christina and Joe's special day and are so excited to give a sneak peek into their big day!

FUSE'D FEATURE: Outer Banks Destination Wedding

When Amanda and Ethan got engaged, they had no idea where they wanted to get married! Ethan grew up in San Diego, Amanda in Philly, and they currently lived in the Midwest. Families were all over the country, so finding the perfect, most convenient location was difficult to say the least! Amanda grew up vacationing at the Outer Banks and Ethan spent most of his time on the beach, so they soon realized the Outer Banks gave them the coastal wedding they were both looking for. Since most of the guests were from out of town, The Black Stallion was the most perfect location for the wedding. Not only was there a beautiful reception space and separate pool house, there were 26 guest rooms for all of the guests to relax and stay. Amanda dreamed of a chic coastal wedding and wanted every aspect of the wedding to reflect just that. The Whalehead Club provided the most perfect backdrop for the ceremony --- gorgeous views of the Sound with breathtaking architecture. The day of the wedding, it rained and rained and rained! We were waiting until the last second to determine if the wedding ceremony should be moved indoors. We decided to gamble with Mother Nature and as it turned out, it rained until 5 minutes before the ceremony. Mother Nature was good to us --- as soon as Amanda got out of the car, the rained stopped. We could not have asked for a more beautiful ceremony and reception that the guests will be talking about for years!
