Maggie and Dan met in medical school, and at the time of their lake wedding are both in residency at Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston Salem. Maggie toured venues (before we started working together!) and decided on the Peninsula Yacht Club near Lake Norman. This was a perfect spot to show off close to their new homes and a big city in North Carolina. Maggie is from Florida and Dan is from Ohio.
Maggie is just the nicest, sweetest person in the world. She is so calm and she has to be an amazing doctor! Dan proposed to Maggie in a vineyard in Nashville. She wanted to use lavender and navy in her color scheme, her favorite color and a nod to the nautical themes present throughout the venue. She wanted to make sure her guests had a great time and that the wedding was very personal to them as a couple. I think we nailed it!
Maggie embraced the yacht club feel and kept the flags and the navy as an element to her design. She wanted to have a wedding cake, but also key lime pies because of her Florida roots. BTW the key lime pies at Publix are really good!
The day of the wedding was very hot, but the breeze off of the water felt great! Maggie and Dan took lots of photos and then it was time to party! Dan surprised Maggie with their first dance song and they had a private last dance song while I got everyone ready for the glow stick exit. Maggie and Dan cruised around the lake on a boat for about 30 minutes for their exit!
Their friends and family had such a great time and packed the dance floor all night! Maggie and Dan, you are the best couple and I can’t wait to see what your future holds! I miss you!
