Mary Meade McMullan and Parker Holloway married on December 11 , 2021 , at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church in High Point . Brianne McMullan Events helped plan and coordinate the day .
Mary Meade wanted a festive , chic reception , so florist John Paulin of the Grassy Knoll incorporated evergreens and magnolia leaves with classic , white florals . Soft ivory and gold tones used throughout the design lit up the space and a hanging greenery installation served as the focal point above the dance floor . The couple honored their dog , Milly , with a Herend cake topper perched atop their five-tier buttercream cake .
Two of Mary Meade ’ s favorite sentimental items were her “ something blue ” — an embroidered handkerchief given by her grandparents — and the veil her mother wore when she married .
The festive weekend ended with a surprise visit from Santa Claus , who drove the couple away amid a sparkler send off . “ It was such a fun and festive way to kick off the holiday season ,” says Mary Meade . The couple agreed the best part of the wedding was spending the weekend with people they love .
