Amanda + Brent  |  Bits & Pieces  |  Claire  |  Millie  |  Rachel  |  Rebecca  |  

The MHP offices are closed until July 25th. We will be tubing around the mountains for a little rest and relaxation. Please be patient if you email or call the office this week, we will return emails and phone calls on July 25th.

While we are away, if you’d like to sign up for our Summer Fun Shoots & Ladders Sessions we still have space and Claire will be checking her email all week!

millie is speaking in tennessee this august

Bits & Pieces  |  Millie  |  

This August I’ve been given the privilege of speaking at Pictage’s Uber Pug in Nashville, Tenessee. I’m super excited to speak again as I’ve taken a break from teaching and speaking for the last year to refresh and work on my own business. The best part of all? Pictage is offering this event for a steal of a deal, the price is so good you’d be crazy not to sign up. I hope you’ll join me! They keep the number in attendance low at these events so the speakers will have time to be more relational and everyone can meet one another, I’m looking forward to it. You DON’T have to be a Pictage member or a PUG attendee to come so sign up here. Hope to see you there!

a bright idea

Bits & Pieces  |  Millie  |  Weddings  |  

On March 22, The Atrium will be hosting A Bright Idea: A showcase featuring rentals by Harborside Event Rentals and lighting by High Performance Lighting.

Harborside Event Rentals is the sister company of Salt Harbor Designs and was created to rent event decor and furniture that customers cannot find from local rental companies. Much of what Salt Harbor Designs purchases for individual events becomes rental inventory for Harborside. Now, they have organized the products into collections, so the DIY bride can duplicate some of the looks from Salt Harbor’s past events.

They have teamed up with High Performance Lighting who is bringing all of their lighting options out of storage so planners and brides can check out everything they have to offer as well! Steve from High Performance will be on site to answer all of your lighting and power questions.

Whether you are a bride, a vendor, a wedding planner, or a local resident who might need some party ideas, do not miss this event! It will be full of great event ideas and so much more!

March 22nd in The Atrium | 15 S. 2nd Street | Downtown Wilmington, NC | 6-9pm

courtyards & cobblestones

Amanda + Brent  |  Bits & Pieces  |  Millie  |  Rachel  |  Weddings  |  

At the beginning of this year, our company had the privilege of being a part of a new bridal event called Courtyards & Cobblestones. What made this event unique is how it allowed future brides and grooms the chance to tour four different venues in downtown Wilmington. A team of wedding professionals pulled together to create one cohesive wedding at each location. This gave couples the chance to picture a wedding in the space and meet the wedding professionals who teamed up in that venue!

A huge thank you to Courtyards & Cobblestones and all the wedding professionals and volunteers who participated in the day. Everything was wonderful and we have been receiving positive reviews from everyone who attended!

The first stop on the tour was The Atrium (also the home of the MHP Studio and Salt Harbor Designs). We were featured at two of the venues on the tour, The Atrium and 128 South (the last venue on the tour) so we took the opportunity to photograph the event at both of these locations!
