A Timeless Vanlandingham Estate Wedding | Tori + Cole

A Vanlandingham Estate Wedding in Charlotte, NC

On April 14, 2023, Tori and Cole celebrated their love at the stunning Vanlandingham Estate in Charlotte, NC. Their journey began four years earlier when Tori’s first job out of college led her to meet two of Cole’s best friends who played matchmaker! Cole proposed in Seattle, WA, over Thanksgiving weekend, surrounded by family—a truly magical moment.
Their wedding style was a beautiful blend of Modern and Classic. Tori and Cole’s top priority was ensuring an unforgettable experience for themselves and their guests, complete with delicious food, great drinks, and an epic dance floor!

Why choose Elle M Events?

When asked why they chose Elle M Events, Tori shared, “Working with Elle M Events was such an easy decision. On our introductory call, we just clicked, and I knew Lauren would be the perfect planner for us!”

Wedding planning tips from a former bride

Tori’s tip for future couples: “Research your options, but don’t flip-flop between decisions. There are endless choices, so pick something and build on it from there.”

Who are you wearing?

Tori was stunning in her Lovers Society gown from Lovely Bride Charlotte, while Cole looked dapper in his Indochino suit. Their stationery, printed by Minted, added a beautiful touch to their day. The Vanlandingham Estate, with its perfect mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, provided a breathtaking backdrop, especially with spring florals in full bloom. The bridesmaids dazzled in dresses from Revelry.
