It's hard to believe it's been nearly a year since Kaytee and Chad said "I do" and became the Whalens!

We were thrilled to be a part of their wedding at Hawkesdene in Andrews, NC.

In all truth, THEY brought the party! But we were happy they chose Remix Weddings founder and owner Mitch Fortune to provide the soundtrack! From epic sing-alongs to signature move dance-offs, it was an absolute blast!

An extra special thanks and shout out to J. Mitchell Productions for capturing memories of their big day!

This week we are featuring another wedding couple ~ Kim & Corey. They spent four days, this past September, with all of their dearest family & friends celebrating their wedding. The wonderful thing about Hawkesdene is that we create a reunion-style event that allows everyone to stay in the same location ~ exploring, catching up and getting to know each other, playing games, eating, drinking, dancing and celebrating together. You never HAVE to leave the estate. We feel it's an even better way to celebrate the joining of two families. Their first day included a rehearsal and dinner, topped off with a bonfire and laughs around the fire-pit 🧑πŸ”₯🧑 (to view more photos, visit our blog at: https://www.hawkesdene.com/kim-corey-september-wedding/ )
