From Casey Rose Photography… When Ben, an attorney in NYC, planned his proposal to Leah, a lawyer in the same firm whom he had met at Duke Law School, he knew it had to be memorable. He decided to trick her into coming to his family cabin under the guise their was an emergency at the house. Being more of a city girl, Leah hated the cabin and dreaded making the journey in the freezing winter temperatures, but agreed to go with Ben. When they arrived, Ben had a surprise picnic awaiting them. Even at the site of the candles and champagne, Leah still thought it was for the workers who were supposed to be coming to help with the fallen tree emergency. She couldn’t understand why Ben would choose to propose in a setting that was not her favorite place.

Then Ben told her that he chose that location because it represented everything that made Leah uncomfortable. He wanted her to know that even in darker days – he would always stand by her side. He knew marriage was never easy, but always worth it and he couldn’t wait to spend the rest of his days with her.

When it decided to rain every day before the week of their planned outdoor garden wedding, Leah and Ben were content with their Plan B. They knew that even in darker days, their marriage and vows would be the focus of the day. Their positive attitudes were rewarded by sunny skies for the entire morning and afternoon of their wedding. When the final picture was taken, a clasp of thunder and lightning greeted them in celebration and as all the guests and wedding party ran to the tent, they knew they had the most perfect day.

As Reverend Malcolm Roberts said in his blessing, “If you don’t believe in miracles, all you had to do was witness the end of Leah and Ben’s vows.”

Boho Chic Carolina Wedding

You know what is magic about this wedding? Well, besides the amazing blooms by Tre Bella, the gorgeous boho chic design by Erin McLean Events and the lovely Bride, the delicious (in every sense of the word) cake from Ashley Cakes and the breathtaking images from Nancy Ray Photography? It took place during a hurricane. Yes, a hurricane. But even with last minute ceremony venue change, this gallery paints the picture of a day that truly captures the love this couple shares, and that’s really the best. See more in the VAULT.

From Erin McLean EventsDanielle + Alex’s design was created around a gorgeous boho chic vest from Anthropologie that she loved. We wanted to bring a garden feel into the rustic feel of the Cotton Room. We brought in pops of sparkle in the champagne sequin linens, gold rimmed chargers, and gold table numbers, to add a sophisticated edge to the boho feel of the space. Danielle and Alex brought in creative pieces of themselves by offering a local coffee brand as favors for the guests and even bringing in a espresso bar during their reception. She also chose to integrate farm tables to give the reception a cozy and intimate family gathering feel. We incorporated beautiful wooden custom signage as an element that Danielle and Alex could have as a keepsake in their home.

Despite having to change ceremony venues at the last moment to accommodate the impending hurricane, their day was magical. The Chuppah transformed the space in the garden feel that Danielle so wanted. The rain even subsided long enough for the couple to capture a few photos on Duke University’s campus, where they first met and fell in love, and Alex proposed.

From A Southern Soiree… Meeting and falling in love in North Carolina made Durham an easy choice of location for Elizabeth and Andrew to say “I do” this past May! Since they were both born and raised in North Carolina, it was important to them to gather their closest family and friends together in the state they love to share in their joy and excitement as they became husband and wife.

First Presbyterian and Bay 7 in Durham proved to be the perfect setting to bring Elizabeth and Andrew’s intimate summer garden inspired wedding to life. Soft peaches and corals accented with neutrals and gold created an elegant palette for a perfectly magical evening! Thoughtful, handwritten notes from the Bride and Groom were set on each table next to the oh-so-cute table numbers made from North Carolina state cut-outs. Guests were surrounded by beautiful blooms, hanging votives and farm tables as they enjoyed a delicious meal by Angus Barn and danced the night away to the amazing sounds of Six Stylez.

Elizabeth and Andrew said goodbye to family and friends and made their way through a sea of sparklers before they headed out as Mr. and Mrs. in a vintage Rolls Royce!
