New Venue On the BLOC

Shayla stood in the large brick-walled room that served as the bridal dressing room at BLOC Venue. With open spaces of brick and concrete and gorgeous light streaming through the large windows. this venue is a dream. The large venue was a perfect canvas for creating a beautiful wedding.

These bedazzled ivory Chuck Taylors highlighted the bride’s unique style. With the date and her new last name on the back they’re a great keepsake. These shoes were made for dancing!

Without a doubt, one of our favorite moments is The First Look session. Intimate and special, these moments give the bride and groom a chance to connect before the ceremony to just be together.

Fantastic Flora

BLOC Venue is a coordinator’s dream because of its open room design. These beautiful empty open spaces enabled talented event planners at Events By Ev and the floral artists at NC Event Designs to create designs to match the couple’s vision of their day.

The venue was flocked in truly breathtaking arrangements of red and white roses with dried pampas grass, fairy lights, and floating candles. Not only did this compliment the season, but also provided an air of romance that added to the love in the room.

Obviously, Anthony felt suave as he and his best man strolled in in GQ style. As they gave each other a handshake and a salute, they both strutted the aisle with ease and style…and a smile.

Candlelight and You

Following the emotional ceremony, the chairs and tables were moved into place so the celebration could begin. Beneath the warm light of the wrought iron chandelier, the burgundy table settings and the beautiful centerpieces looked rich and elegant.

In addition to the flowers and candles, the reception had a fun Instagram station and, of course, a bar. The talented Shimmer and Stain created these modern signs for guests to follow.
