Just a few more months until our garden blooms again!

It’s the small things

Small details can make all the difference in an event. These personalized napkins in a bright color were a small but fun touch. The squirrels tie in nicely with the Lee family crest, too!

Fall weddings at Lee Fendall House

We have been lucky to host some truly lovely weddings this fall. Here are just a few photos:

Lee Fendall garden wedding ceremony

This was one of the most personal wedding ceremonies we’ve seen- the brother of the bride and the sister of the groom performed the ceremony!

Elegance & Simplicity and Design Cuisine put together a spectacular reception in early October.

These professional photos will be wonderful. Bright colors always look great at Lee Fendall.

Food Fun

Good caterers can make an event extraordinary. No matter is it is a plated meal, buffet, or stations, guests remember great food!

Below are pictures of an event catered by our friends at Main Event.

Spring wedding season is in full swing at the Lee Fendall House. There have been many, many wonderful ideas so far!

This lounge furniture was perfect for an afternoon cocktail hour that also featured lawn games.

These tissue paper decorations in the tent tied in the color scheme and were a snap to hang.

There are more great photos to come!

 

Southern Weddings Challenge

We were so happy to host Petals Edge and Sweet Tea Photography a while back. They shot the beautiful images that are now part of Southern Weddings Ultimate Burlap Challenge. Check it out and be sure to leave a comment!

Behind the scenes

Caterers, florists, musicians, event planners, photographers, and the Lee-Fendall staff work together to make each event a success.

A good caterer will transform the Lee-Fendall house and garden in two hours and be completely prepared as your first guests arrive.

Caterer setuo at Lee Fendall House

Caterers use screens to disguise their prep area in the garden. Setting up outside gives them fast access to the tent.

A day-of event coordinator can help set up personal touches, such as this non-traditional guestbook table tucked under the main stairway in the house.

Our director’s office doubles as our bride’s room. It has a large full-length mirror and windows with a wonderful view of the garden.

All of these spaces in the house and garden are uniquely suited to helping events run smoothly.

Beauty in the Details

Fall was a busy wedding season for us, and each wedding was different in so many ways. Our last wedding of the season was one of the smallest and was filled with personal details.

The bride and her mother, pictured here at the Lee Fendall back door, did the flowers for the wedding. They had collected a wide variety of glass containers that came together beautifully on the long tables.

The chuppah was made from the groom’s grandmother’s quilt- another beautiful, personal detail at this wedding.
