Amanda and Eric’s Wedding at Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock, NC

January 31, 2014

Amanda and Eric’s creative travel themed wedding in Blowing Rock was so much fun to put together. The NC State Graduates actually traveled to Japan when they were dating and wanted to incorporate their love of travel into the overall theme for their wedding.
“According to Japanese lore, folding 1,000 Origami Cranes is truly a labor of love. Tradition holds that the bride who finishes this task, called ‘sembazuru’, before her wedding day will be richly rewarded with a good and happy marriage. Paying homage to the majestic crane, which mates for life and is said to live one thousand years, the bride ensures her own good fortune.”
Amanda got to work and did actually succeed in folding 1,000+ cranes for her wedding! With the help of The Whole Shebang, Miss Match Rentals and Desi’s Floral and Design Co. Amanda’s unique design took shape. The finished product was one of my favorites of 2013!
