Wine, Weddings, and a Warm Welcome!

Last Thursday E.G. Couture celebrated our official grand opening with the help of some of Charlotte's finest in the wedding industry.  Everyone pitched in to showcase their talents and make the evening a success.

Guests and vendors noshed on mini cupcakes from The Blushing Bakeshop (red velvet and chocolate/mocha were my favorite) and dear readers if you have not tried their cupcakes yet you are FOR REAL missing out! They are YUMMY!

To compliment the cupcakes, Erin Grey Weddings & Events supplied a crisp Sauvignon blanc, buttery Chardonnay, sparkling Prosecco and hand picked domestic and imported beers.  The DOC company also arranged baked brie and cucumber sandwiches from High Cotton Catering.


We had several wonderful vendors help with the decor: Erica with Green Shoes Weddings & Events, Lisa with Classic Party Rentals and Carolyn with Carolyn Shepard Design Group.

We were also honored to have two of E.G. Couture's designers on hand for the evening.  Ashley from Lilly Belle Invitations (contact for information & pricing) graced us with samples of her work as did Gillian Stevens of Dewdrop Designs.  Stevens creates hand made silk screened leather accessories for the bride and bridal party.

The evening would not have been complete without Drea from Cunningham Photo Artist and her cute puppy Lucy, or the super stylish Melissa from Swanky Bride and Charlotte Wedding Magazine's Bride+Groom Blog.

A BIG thank you to Drea for documenting the evening and being so kind as to let us use the images!  And if any of our readers need help picking your bridal gown, finding killer bridesmaid accessories, or just some help tying bows on your wedding day...contact Melissa!

Thank you to all the vendors and brides who joined us for the grand opening; we can't thank you enough for your help and support!  We look forward to working with you in the future and we appreciate the warm welcome!!

Designer Spotlight - Murphy Jewelry

So sorry for the hiatus.  We have been rockin' and rollin' around here lately!  The good news is that we have some exciting updates that will be announced soon and I can hardly wait to share it with you!!  But, on to the real reason for the post (I know, I know...tell you that I have a surprise only to leave you readers hanging even longer; I'm so mean :-p )

This is a post I have been super excited to share with all of our readers.  Today's designer spotlight is about local jewelry designer Kathleen Murphy.

Kathleen is the owner and designer of Murphy Jewelry and I cannot express to you how stunning her pieces are!  They are modern yet timeless and can be worn with your wedding attire and even after the wedding day festivities.

Kathleen has been designing jewelry since high school and draws her inspiration from high fashion and nature; making her pieces fashion forward and timeless.

Here are just a few of our favorite pieces:

How awesome are these pieces?  I already have a wish list of styles I want just to wear out on a date or to work!  

Did you see something that caught your eye?  What is your favorite piece?  We would love to know!

We have the above pieces in store for you to purchase or if you are looking for something particular the designer is happy to customize pieces to you liking.
