Molly & Neil
Molly and Neil’s summer wedding at the Proximity Hotel was one for the books. We’re honored they chose to get married at the Proximity, and so happy to share the tale of this amazing couple and their beautiful wedding.
She was a waitress at the time, and of all the tables in the restaurant, he was seated at hers. They’d never met, and little did they know they actually attended the same high school several years earlier. Sparks flew, and Neil asked Molly out for coffee the very next night. From that fateful first date onward, they were inseparable. One night a few years later, Neil took Molly out to dinner at their favorite restaurant, Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen. Molly had been studying for law school finals, and was in need of a much-deserved break. They sat outside on the veranda, and Neil surprised her with a proposal. Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen has become their place, so it’s fitting that it is also their favorite restaurant in town for celebrations. (Read Molly’s winning story submitted to Lucky’s 25th anniversary short story contest.)
Choosing the Proximity Hotel was an easy decision for Molly and Neil, because of all the happy memories they’ve shared at sister-properties, Green Valley Grill, Print Works Bistro and Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen. They’re from Ohio, but they knew they wanted to have their wedding in North Carolina. They envisioned a small wedding with a lot of heart and soul, and sentimental touches. Combined with their creativity and steadfast adoration and love for one another, we can definitely say they accomplished that.
Molly and Neil’s wedding was full of lovely and unique paper-centered DIY projects that added handcrafted touches of charm and grace — practically all of which were designed by the bride herself. Their wedding had a timeless, vintage romance feel, with a soft color palate, cursive script, lace, roses and hydrangeas, and antique skeleton key details. After making the paper goods for their wedding, Molly began getting other requests for similar items for other weddings, so she opened a paper goods shop on Etsy, called Modern Vintage Romance.
