    Helping a dad give his baby girl the wedding of her dreams

    My youngest daughter and I were in a situation where we were the only ones who were planning her wedding. We visited a number of venues in the Triangle, mainly focused on an urban contemporary theme. Still she wanted to visit the Parlour since she hadn't found a venue that "fit". Literally, as soon as we got out of the car at the Parlour, my daughter, her fiancee and I made eye contact and before we even said a word, we knew this was the perfect venue for my daughter's personality. "Urban contemporary" quickly became "vintage". She wanted small and intimate and the Parlour is exactly that. Aimee and Yvette were great to work with. Not only did they give great advice about the venue, they gave fantastic recommendations of other vendors we would need. I was a "fish out of water" with all this wedding planning and between the Parlour and the other vendors they recommended, I had a team that helped me give my daughter and new son in law the wedding of their dreams. We never felt we were "customers", but were dealing with folks who truly wanted to help bring my daughter's vision into reality. An added bonus was about a month before the wedding, Aimee and Yvette added the retro airliner bridal suite which was a great vintage touch to my daughter's vision. In the days before the wedding I felt I was on a tight rope and something would go wrong. However, on the wedding day, due to the efforts of the folks at the Parlour and all the other folks they referred us to, not only did my daughter get the wedding of her dreams, everything exceeded our expectations. Not a single complaint by any guest on a rather warm day and quite a number of compliments. Since the FOB is the host of the wedding, that was perfect to hear. I appreciate so much as a dad who had no experience at all with putting together an event like this, that Aimee, Yvette and all the folks that they recommended allowed me to give my baby girl the wedding she had always wanted.
