Lank and Laflin: A Spring Soiree 

Going back to old times with a recipe exchange! As the world is social distancing right now, many of us are experimenting in our kitchens to help pass the time.  So you have been invited to be a part of a #QuarantineCooking recipe exchange!  Yay!

Please send a recipe to the person whose name is in position #1 (even if you don’t know them) and it should be something quick, easy and without rare ingredients.  Actually, the best one is the one you know in your head and can type right now.  Don’t agonize over it… It is the recipe you make when you are short on time.

After you’ve sent your recipe to the person in position #1 below (and only to that person), copy this email into a new email, move my name to the top and put your name in position #2.  Only mine and your name should show when you send your email. Send to 20 friends via BCC.

If you cannot do this within 5 days, let me know so it will be fair to those participating.  You should receive 36 recipes.  It’s fun to see where they come from!  Seldom does anyone drop out because we all need new ideas.  The turnaround is fast, as there are only 2 names on the list and you only have to do this once.

In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay home.
Happy #Quarantinecooking

Istanbul, Turkey and Lancaster, SC one beautiful couple.  

While a formal ceremony was held in Istanbul, Turkey, in August, Dilara and Justin chose to exchange vows for local friends and family here in the heart of South Carolina. 

On September 28th, 2019 North Corner Haven had the honor of hosting a second vow exchange and celebration for this beautiful couple. 

Many special details were included making this celebration one to remember.  After spending a relaxing night in the Farm House, the groom’s mother worked passionately to create arrangements from foraged and farm flowers.  The Farm House and Event Lawn offered the mood they desired:  a relaxed and casual backdrop to share their union with their closest friends and family

The Back Porch Orchestra serenaded guests with an acoustic rendition of “Swept Away” by the Avett Brothers as guests made their way to witness the vowel exchange. On a beautiful day just as summer was turning into fall and the sun was setting over the lake, friends and family looked on from the farmhouse porch as Dilara and Justin made promises to each other that they would cherish for the rest of their lives.   Dilara looked gorgeous as her lovely dress flowed elegantly and puddled onto the grass.

Cocktail hour ensued in the courtyard as guests enjoyed deliciously shucked oysters (with all the fixin’s, of course) from Beaufort, SC brought by the groom’s father. The couple’s wedding registry gave guests a glimpse of their exquisite wedding in Turkey. Photos of the occasion lined the table where guests left well wishes for the newlyweds. 

Paella, Brisket, and a Farm fresh Salad bar were just a few of the Chef’s creations served at various stations which surrounded the barn. Tables adorned with delicate fresh floral arrangements were assiduously placed throughout the barn allowing guests to enjoy their meals and the celebration of Dilara and Justin’s first dance

Getting this group to dance was not a challenge, hugs, singing and lots of laughs surrounded the farm as the music entertained the guests throughout the evening.

Toasts were made for the happy couple and the night came to a close. As guests made their way onto the coach buses provided by Rose Transportation, they were delighted with a special and “warm” touch of Chick Fil A awaiting them for their end of the night travels.

Emma Kate and Evan worked with their planner, Morgan Martyn and our team at North Corner Haven to create an event reflective of southern charm and refined elegance. 

Native to Charlotte, North Carolina, Emma Kate knew she wanted a wedding venue close to home. North Corner Haven provided the perfect backdrop to host family and friends nestled in the corner where North and South Carolina meet.

The night before your wedding day always holds a certain unexplainable excitement, a memory to carry with you for the rest of your life. Emma Kate and her bridal party spent that night enjoying their evening together in our luxurious Farm House. The next morning the ladies were pampered by their hair and makeup artists as they created a variety of different updos and applied makeup fit only for Emma Kate’s special wedding day.

Both Evan and Emma Kate knew in their hearts that they wanted that private “first look” away from family and friends. This intimate moment which took place in front of the rustic Well House, was exactly what their hearts desired.

This couple chose to hold their ceremony on the front Event Lawn integrating our North Corner Haven Cross which was dressed in soft greenery with pops of blush and white flowers.  Of course you can’t help but notice the beauty of nature’s backdrop.

Under the large oak trees and market lights, the Bride and Groom’s friends and family enjoyed appetizers and cocktails around the large circular bar, in the courtyard, as they caught up with those who traveled from afar to join the celebration. You know what a big bar means? No lines!

Tuscan chairs, tapered candles and Farm tables, decorated the Reception Barn for an elegant dinner for guests to enjoy.  Introductions of the wedding party and the new Mr & Mrs were announced just before the happy couple “….” into their First Dance as husband and wife.  The barn’s rustic bones paired with navy blue linens created the perfect southern draw.

As the music got going and dancing ensued, the bride surprised her guests and her groom with an on stage performance!  Her wedding gown was the perfect style allowing her the flexibility to dance throughout the evening.

Coupled as an excellent Farm style decor, S’mores also made for a great snack and a lovely favor for their friends and family to enjoy a break from the dancing and relax by the fireside.
