Mike & Jenzy

Making The Story

I have had the pleasure of working with Matt from Hospitality Butler as my wedding planner, and I cannot express enough how grateful I am for his exceptional service.

The wedding bells rang loud and clear for Mike and Jenzy Eppes as they tied the knot in a luxurious ceremony at The Vanlandingham Estate in Charlotte, NC on March 18, 2023. The couple's big day was a spectacular event filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable moments that left guests in awe.

The venue, The Vanlandingham Estate, is a historic mansion that boasts a breathtaking garden and a stunning ballroom, making it the perfect location for the couple's dream wedding. The estate's manicured gardens served as the picturesque backdrop for the ceremony, which took place on the front steps of the home at 4:30 pm.

The wedding invitations were designed by Deb at Olive Branch, who created stunning stationary that captured the couple's classic and elegant style. Guests were invited to attend a rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding at the Sugar Creek Brewery. The dinner was catered by two-time award-winning Chef Will with Seasoned Provisions, who wowed guests with his culinary expertise.

The couple's alma mater, Ole Miss, was a prominent feature throughout the wedding, and they were introduced to the reception with their alma mater song. Jenzy's colors for her wedding were a combination of light blue and peach, which set the tone for the entire event.

Erik Christian had the honor of officiating the wedding, which was a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony that left guests in tears. Jenzy's hair and makeup were done by the talented team at Elle Beauty, who transformed her into a stunning bride.

After dinner, guests were treated to sweet treats by Roam Local, and late-night bites included Chick Fil A biscuits, which were a hit with everyone in attendance. The couple also had a live painter on site by April Atchley, who created a masterpiece that captured the essence of the entire event.

Jenzy's wedding dress was designed by Mon Biljou Bridal, with the Melange Collection, which was a perfect choice for the elegant bride. The caterer for the wedding was Best Impressions in Charlotte, NC, who created a delicious menu that impressed guests.

Click Away Photography with Taylor Cline captured every moment of the wedding day, and the stunning photos will be cherished by the couple for years to come. Not Your Granny's Florist by Annette was responsible for the stunning floral arrangements that adorned the venue, and they did an exceptional job of creating beautiful and sophisticated displays.

The couple hired the Next Level Band of Charlotte to provide entertainment for their guests, and they delivered an unforgettable performance that kept everyone on their feet throughout the night. Lindsay Hunt Design created the rehearsal dinner stationary and reception oyster shells for guest seating, which added a personal touch to the entire event. The wedding strings for the ceremony were completed by Upstate Strings Trio, Jada Tate, who provided beautiful music that set the tone for the ceremony.

The entire event was flawlessly executed thanks to the hard work and dedication of Matt Starnes from Hospitality Butler, who was responsible for the wedding planning and design. The end result was a stunning and luxurious wedding that left guests in awe, and Mike and Jenzy will cherish the memories of their special day for a lifetime.
