From the beautiful Bride… Adam and I met our sophomore year at Miami University of Ohio through a mutual friend. His humor, positivity and absolute love of life captured my heart in just a few short months. After four and a half years of moves, long distance, and new jobs, Adam proposed while we were on vacation in St. Lucia with my family celebrating my graduation from graduate school.

As soon as we got engaged, I knew the ideal venue for our June 7th wedding date. I grew up for the majority of my life overseas in London, England. My parents had recently relocated back to the States, to a lake in South Carolina. For the past few years, we had been going up to The Old Edwards Inn and Spa in Highlands, North Carolina and I fell completely in love with it. Adam is a huge outdoorsman and loves camping and hiking, so the idea of getting married in the mountains really appealed to him. Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the location was the perfect combination of European charm and the great outdoors. It just seemed to click with both Adam and I.

We wanted the wedding to be timeless, classic and elegant, with English and Southern touches, as well as bringing in Adam’s background with glimpses of Midwest ease and charm. Our 145 guests came from across the United States, as well as the United Kingdom and Switzerland, so we wanted to make sure we made the places we have traveled to and hold so near and dear to our hearts, focal points of the wedding design.

Our color palate included champagne tones, muted gold and pops of coral, also drawing on the lush greenery of the venue. Peonies, garden roses, packed hydrangeas and baby’s breath were the flowers of choice, accented by hundreds of candles. Bridesmaids wore champagne J. Crew silk chiffon dresses with muted gold shoes, while the groomsmen wore champagne ties.

We included many British touches throughout the reception, including mini fish and chips at cocktail hour in the orchard and a signature classic ‘Pimm’s Cup’ cocktail- my favorite refreshing summer British drink. The farm to table menu included everything from a Southern seafood ‘action’ station, to tandoori chicken, to fried buffalo chicken biscuits, to truffle mac and cheese- a nice reflection of us. The groom’s cake was a classic ‘Ohio Buckeye’ cake of chocolate and peanut butter and decorated with all of Adam’s favorite sports teams and activities.

Thanks to the amazing vendors and the absolutely incredible Lindsay Pitt at TOAST Events, the wedding was the best night of our lives. I honestly don’t think I have ever smiled or danced that much in my life! It was the ideal celebration to start our married life together.

Whimsical Botanical Garden Wedding

The most memorable weddings, in my opinion, are equal parts fabulous and fun. LBB members A Swanky Affair and Bunn DJ Company are the perfect team for just that, giving a summer fair feel to this Carolina couple’s big day. Pin wheels, streamers, and bicycles are only the start of the playful details. Rebecca Ames Photography captured all the whimsy here!

From Amanda… I was so honored to be a part of Kate and Jeff’s colorful summer wedding at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens in Chapel Hill. Kate and Jeff were blessed with a gorgeous summer day. It started off with the girls having mani-pedis at Mina’s Studio. Then, everyone gathered at the gardens for an afternoon of photos followed by a sweet and intimate ceremony. During the cocktail hour guests were entertained with bluegrass music from The Happy Valley Pals and enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres from The Catering Company of Chapel Hill. There were so many fun details incorporated throughout the evening! There were bicycles (they met at a bike shop), pinwheel escort cards, a DIY photo booth, and ribbon wands for a fun and colorful send off.

From Rebecca Ames Photography… Kate and Jeff’s wedding was spectacular and just screamed out whimsical summer. It almost reminded me of a Bohemian Summer Fair with the pinwheels and the colorful photo booth. I loved how they incorporated bicycles into the programs, invitations and thank you gifts. They also made sure to make the wedding eco-friendly by using recycled papers and natural products. ! They even had a ring warming ceremony that was very heart warming. I also really loved how they had a farm table at the reception. What a nice touch Finally, they had a grand exit with homemade colorful ribbon streamers.

Cozy Fearrington Village Wedding

With the crisp, cool air of autumn right around the corner, I’m craving rustic barns, twinkling lights and dusky gray skies like you wouldn’t believe. And thanks to Krystal Kast, I’m getting my fall fix today with this cozy affair held at Fearrington Village. Complete with a couple adorable white belly-striped cows, a candlelit aisle and a wildly beautiful bouquet from Mary Stevens, it’s easy to get comfy in this gallery.

From Krystal Kast Photography… Erica and Matt met while working at the National Basketball Association. Their friendship grew into a relationship and after almost three years, Matt surprised Erica by proposing on the same spot they first met at the NBA offices. No wonder this couple sprinted to their “I do’s” and were one of the happiest couples to be married this year!

From the beautiful Bride…We got married on an absolutely gorgeous November evening in North Carolina. Our ceremony was outdoors in the peaceful gardens of the Fearrington, the ideal venue for our romantic and intimate wedding. During our ceremony, the sun set behind the fall foliage and a full moon rose high in the clear sky, allowing the candles to shine bright and cast a warm glow on our friends and family. The reception was in the charming Fearrington barn, which was elegantly styled in all white decor with pops of color from the stunning floral centerpieces arranged by Mary Stevens. Our friends and family danced the night away to Sol Fusion, a phenomenal eleven-piece band that impressed us with their powerful singing and entertaining mash ups. We enjoyed delicious food and cake, the latter designed beautifully with cascading roses in shades of fuchsia, ombre-styled. The guests bid us farewell with dazzling sparklers and then indulged in the locally-made Chapel Hill Toffee, their parting favor, on the way home. Most special day of our lives.
