We loved being a part of Hillary and Adam’s fall wedding weekend! They kicked it off with a rehearsal dinner in Color Works Meeting Space. Then they shared their unique ceremony and reception with us at The Colonnade on November 10, 2018.
“We met on tinder (LOL) and after texting for about a week, we went on our first date. The rest is history! … We both swiped right, so I’d say it was literally love at first sight ;)” - Hillary, Bride
“We were in Iceland and he proposed on my birthday! He carried the ring around in his pocket all day waiting for the ideal moment. He thought it was the perfect time when we went to see the Northern Lights and just when he wanted to ask, a tour bus full of very excited (ahem, loud) people showed up and, knowing that I wouldn’t want an audience, he waited until we got back to the hotel room. It ended up being super private and special!” - Hillary, Bride
The Venue & Catering
The couple loved the character of Revolution Mill including the exposed brick, tall windows and high ceilings; but what truly drew them in was the custom wrought iron railings.
Hillary and Adam said their vows, surrounded by family and friends in the lower level with our amazing brick and arched window backdrop. While they took some fun pictures around Revolution Mill (check out Hillary’s lush fur stole and rad leather jacket!), guests enjoyed cocktail hour with an open bar along with passed mini sundried tomato biscuits with homemade pimento cheese; bruschetta; and barbecued shrimp on polenta cakes. A dinner buffet followed with tossed salad; Parmesan cream chicken; pepper pork loin with stone fruit and bacon glaze; smashed potatoes; green beans and a special entree for several vegan guests.
The Planning Process and Vendors
The couple chose a moody, romantic theme for their wedding and the burgundy, dark greens and blush pink colors paired perfectly to help set the mood of the day. The furniture rented from Eventful NC helped to add the perfect element of vintage charm for family seating during the indoor ceremony. Then it was re positioned to create a fun photo op and lounge area for guests during the reception!

“All of our vendors were so great! Events by Summer Joy took the pressure off day-of coordination. Andraya with Flora gave me the flowers of my dreams. Samantha Floyd Photography did such an amazing job capturing our day/personalities. Megan Perry with The Hair Refinery did my hair and makeup exactly the way I wanted. B*Dazzled Productions was so fantastic as DJ - it was the best party ever!
The communication with Revolution Mill Events was wonderful. I never felt out of the loop or like Jaime didn't have a full grasp of what I was looking for. This gave me great peace of mind.”
