Greetings from the New Intern!

Well hello there, fancy meeting 
you here.  I am Erin Moore, the new intern for the Fall of 2015! I am originally from Tampa, Florida and I just graduated from Florida State University (Go Noles!) in the Spring with a degree in Media Communications. Are you wondering how in the world I ended up here in Burlington, NC? It was a clandestine meeting, I assure you. I met one of Jenn's brides at a tailgate for the FSU Notre Dame football game, she told me about Jenn, we talked over Skype, and here I am!

I am beyond excited to be joining Jenn and her team at Knot Your Average Events! I've already gotten my feet (and most of my body) wet my first week here going to meetings with clients, participating in a bridal show, and even working a wedding all within my first week here! It's a busy business and I'm loving every moment so far! I look forward to talking to you all and hopefully meeting more and more brides and potential clients!

Wedding Flowers

Popular Wedding flowers

With so many different types of flowers in the world, how do you make such a big decision?  Brides always ask what types of flowers and colors go well together.  Have flowers that represent what you like especially if you like a certain type of flower.  For your bridal bouquet have something that you’re comfortable with carrying. 

Keep in mind that some flowers are heavier than others, so if you are a petite bride, keep your bouquet simple and match your bouquet to your body's frame.  Don't let your flowers overtake you walking down the aisle.  Make your bridal bouquet what you want it to because it will be in all of the photos.  We highly suggest having a professional create your wedding party and family flowers since they know the proper ways of securing them and prepping them for a long day in and out of water.  This will ensure that all of your flowers match your budget and style  and will last throughout the entire event. According to The Knot these are the Top 10 wedding flowers.
  • Rose
  • Tulip
  • Calla Lily
  • Lily of the valley
  • Hydrangeas
  • Peony
  • Ranunculus
  • Stephanotis
  • Sweet Peas
  • Gardenia

Goodbyes are never easy!

Wow what an awesome semester!  I do not even know where to begin.  I am really sad that my internship with this great staff is over.  We worked hard, shared laughs, learned from mistakes and most importantly had fun.

Working with Jenn, I have established some great relationships with some amazing vendors.  Made some awesome new friends and memories for a lifetime.  I absolutely enjoyed making peoples day and all of their dreams come true.  

This is not goodbye, this is a see you later!  Even though I will be moving away to be closer to my family, I will be back soon.  Until next time, lets keep the magic happening!!
