So, when the occasion arose, it should come as little surprise that every detail—even down to the location's name, Bridal Veil Falls—was flawless. Next up? A fabulous shindig at Chestnut Ridge, of course. Caroline McCrory of Mingle Events & Rentals teamed up with North Carolina- born Lizzie to scour the bride's Pinterest saves and serve up an unforgettable December wedding that both surprised and delighted. A color palette of burgundy, blush, cream, and navy dressed the day, a seven-course Vietnamese meal (including a lavish lobster dish and fried rice) was a tip of the hat to Lizzie's cultural background, and the couple's signature cocktail, "The Patterson Sour," wet many a whistle. Equal parts whiskey, Sundrop, and sour mix, the libation was a crowd-pleaser and a surefire way to get guests throwing down to the tunes of Split Second Sound. Raise a glass to these two, a host and hostess after our own hearts.
