It's All in the Details!

Creative Invitation for Courtney & Zandy's Rehearsal Dinner at Tobacco Road
While we do have a number of actual weddings at the Inn. We also host several wedding parties at the Inn that have a large ceremony and reception (100+) at a different venue, but decide to rent the entire Inn for their close family and friends to spend some time together during the downtime of the weekend. This past weekend, Courtney and Zandy had an incredible ceremony and reception at the beautiful Bay 7.  However, they also had their families stay with us at the Inn. It was a perfect setting for them. 

The whole group was able to relax before and after at the Inn. They utilized the Brodie Duke Hall as a hospitality suite that provided home made snacks, beer, wine, board games and the tvs were tuned into college football games.  They also displayed the rehearsal dinner invitation (above) and the wedding invitation (below). They included a mad libs RSVP card and we displayed these along the banister of the grand staircase of the Inn. Guests had a great time reading the suggested song requests for the reception!

              
       
To top it all off, Zandy (the groom) bought large pumpkins for all 17 rooms and assigned each room by writing their names on the pumpkin. They also added a North Carolina themed welcome bag with Carolina Popcorn Shoppe Caramel Corn, Pumpkin Spice Moravian Cookies, Burt's Bees Chapstick and Local Made Soap.

We could not be happier for Zandy & Courtney! 
We hope you and your families visit us again soon!
