Nicole and Nick ~Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina Wedding

Ceremony: All Saints Chapel, Reception: The Rickhouse, Durham ~ June 4th, 2016

web 2016 6 4-15

Traditional, classy elements with bold sparks of color magnified through every detail of Nicole and Nick’s wedding day. The couple made sure that every little detail was creatively thought upon to reflect their unique personalities and styles.

Nicole looked beyond stunning in her timeless lace wedding gown accessorized with removable lace sleeves and a traditional veil edged with lace detailing. To throw in a surprise, this bride showed that she was not afraid of color and rocked a fun pair of bold colorful heels. Her leading ladies looked gorgeous in grey and also continued the fun with their bright colorful heels.

Groom, Nick, looked handsome in his classy black tuxedo but wanted to show that his Groomsmen weren’t afraid to be bold with color as well. Each gentleman displayed a different colored suit coat, which electrified through the day and complimented the ladies nicely.

 The ceremony took place at the most charming little chapel in Downtown Raleigh. The vision was brought to life with soft décor, a harpist, and a choir. The Reception was nothing shy of a good time as all of the guests made their way to the fabulous Rickhouse in downtown Durham. Color certainly made its appearance throughout this space as well and guests were treated with entertainment throughout the entire evening. With a fun, colorful chalkboard wall, photo booth, balcony overlooking the former home of the Durham Bulls baseball team, and dancing until the very end of the night, this entire day was filled with laughter and fun. The couple finished up the evening with a final dance and continued their celebration at one of their favorite local spots.

Absolutely stunning and timeless

Whitney and Sean ~State College, Pennsylvania Wedding

General Potter Farm ~ April 30th, 2016

Sean and Whitney

What a joy it was to be a part of Whitney and Sean’s beautiful wedding day. Whitney and I met back in High school and were reconnected at our ten-year high school reunion this past fall.

This beautiful bride dreamed of creating a day filled with rustic elegance, special moments with family and friends, and of course a day that celebrated the beautiful love she shares with Sean. It was such a delight to help her bring this vision to life.

General Potter Farm was the perfect venue for rustic elegance as it features an updated barn surrounded by nature’s beauty. Not to mention that spring was fully making its appearance for this couple’s end of April wedding and complimented Whitney’s soft color palette very nicely.

Whitney’s radiant smile never stopped the entire day and the emotions were flowing as this beautiful bride made her way to say “I Do” to her groom. Guests enjoyed an evening of live music and dancing as everyone celebrated the start of this new life together.

Alexis and Kyle ~ Summerfield, North Carolina Wedding

The Garden’s at Gray Gables ~ October 23rd, 2015

Kyle and Alexis Veil 2

The love this couple has for each other just shown throughout their entire wedding day. From the minute the bride put on her beautiful gown with lace sleeves until the moment the newlyweds were sent-off in a sparkler get-away it was very clear that these two were more than excited to begin their lives together as husband and wife.

Keeping their ceremony focused on the importance of their faith, the bride and groom committed their love to each other surrounded by their family and friends in one of the intimate gardens within the venue.

With the chilly fall air coming in at dusk, the guests made their way into the tent for an evening of dinner, dancing, and unforgettable moments. The maid of honor surprised the couple with a touching song she wrote reflecting on the couple’s relationship and the bride and groom played a game to see how well they really know each other.

The couple thanked all of their family and friends for making their wedding day so magical and their guests waved them off in a sparkler sendoff of well wishes for the happy future ahead of them.

Elegant country charm was overflowing through this beautiful wedding day at Merry Hill Farm, when Stephanie and Chris said, “Yes” to a lifetime of happiness together. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, this happy couple didn’t forget any of the little details when bringing their dream day to life.

The bride looked stunning in her vintage lace gown and was nicely complimented by her beautiful ladies who wore mismatched navy dresses. Of course their look wouldn’t be complete without cowgirl boots.

The beautiful ceremony was filled with memorable moments and traditional vows, and was followed by an entertaining evening of fun. The couple made sure their guests would leave that night having nothing short of a good time. From the well-designed photo booth with hilarious homemade props, to the appearance of horses, donkeys, and peacocks, every guest was filled with laughter and joy throughout the evening. The night came to a close with a few heartfelt dances and an exciting sparkler send-off to send the happy couple off on their new life together.
