Ever wish you could do a trial run of your wedding day? Where you could see how your lighting will look in your reception space, how your rentals will look at your ceremony, how your florist’s creations will size up, and how your band will look and sound? Well, we can’t line up your exact wedding day details, but if you’re a bride getting married in Wilmington, North Carolina, we’ve got the next best thing!

Courtyards & Cobblestones is a highly curated wedding planning and inspiration event designed to help you find your wedding day style and plan your Wilmington wedding, taking place January 14 and 15th, 2017!

Every January in Wilmington, North Carolina, a group of hand-picked creatives brings to life seven mock weddings and showcases them to brides through a downtown walking tour: Courtyards & Cobblestones, A Walk Through Wedding Row.

Your ticket gets you access to seven fully-styled venues in Wilmington, each one designed by a different crack team of the best wedding vendors in Southeastern North Carolina. Each team creates a fully styled wedding and reception at their chosen venue, allowing brides to experience their artistry firsthand.

On the C&C Tour, couples take part in a wedding planning experience like none other with live music, table settings, flowers, lighting, cake tastings, savory samplings, beverages, photo booths, and incredible giveaways from REEDS Jewelers, Pressed Cotton, Party Suppliers & Rentals, High Performance Lighting & Power, and Courtyard by Marriott Downtown/Historic District.

For the past six years, this creative wedding event has provided a relaxed and inspirational atmosphere for couples to plan their wedding. Each bride also walks away with a swag bag full of goodies from the C&C creatives and sponsors as well as several bridal magazines (including Southern Weddings, of course!).

The photos in this post are from last year’s Courtyards & Cobblestones event, giving you an idea of what you’ll encounter on this year’s tour! Pretty incredible, right?! It really is a super fun time, and so helpful for all of our Wilmington brides, too! Be sure to check out the behind-the-scenes video from our Blue Ribbon Vendor Life Stage Films, below.

    Confession: I’m a bit of a magazine hoarder. While part of that may be due to my career field, the other reason is that I really do love looking back at past issues! No matter how old a magazine is, I always find an idea or two to take away for the season with every read. In the same vein, there are so many gorgeous editorials in our archives, so it’s always fun to revisit old favorites. Since we’re eagerly anticipating the dogwood season in North Carolina, it seems like the perfect time to take a peek back at V7‘s A New Beginning! We kept things quite simple in this editorial, allowing the stunning trees, gorgeous real life couple, sweet kiddos, and joyful moments to shine. It’s one of my personal favorites to this day and we hope y’all love it as much as we do!

    Thank you so much to Landon Jacob Photography for capturing every detail for us!

    Oh, friends–get your tissues out for this one! When a bride and groom choose a family farm for their wedding, you just know that their day is going to be filled with warmth, hospitality, and a whole lotta love. In Nancy and Patrick’s case, their celebration was all the more meaningful because the farm was also where her parents had tied the knot 29 years earlier! From her sister’s touching toast to her sweet daddy’s words of wisdom, it’s easy to see that this day meant so much to every single member of their families. We’re so grateful that our Blue Ribbon Vendor Life Stage Films shared all of this early autumn sweetness with us!

    From the bride:

    Our favorite detail of the wedding was our venue. We were married on my family’s farm, exactly where my parents exchanged vows in 1985. Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed about getting married at the same place as my parents. I was able to walk out the same door that my mom and her father walked out of to the man of my dreams, just as my mom had walked out to my dad. It was so very special to live out my childhood dream–and the day was so much better than what I ever imagined!

    During the reception/dance party, I remember looking around and saying to Patrick that the day could not have been more perfect. It was overwhelming to see our favorite people in the world in one place in one time to celebrate us. In that moment, I was so filled with love!
