And of course, Rachel Red Photography who captured the entire affair from beginning to end. Go see why we can’t get enough of the details behind this incredible day.

From the Bride…

The invitations |  I’ve been designing invitations as a creative outlet and knew I wanted to incorporate a custom set into the wedding design. Jon wanted a modern font and I fell in love with the blush watercolor florals.

The ceremony |  Our ceremony was one of the best parts of the day. I knew once we were together at the end of that aisle that we would keep each other calm no matter how big the storm was outside. Instead of being stressful, it was a beautiful reminder of why we fell for each other; we just have a knack for keeping each other happy when life gets crazy.

The floral wall | We wanted something that would blend seamlessly with the outdoor environment we had anticipated getting married in. Little did we know it would become the star of the night after being moved indoors. I will never forget the moment I walked into the carriage house and saw the way he was looking at me, standing amidst all the candles and our floral backdrop; it was pure magic.

The dress |  The light taupe tulle was such a pretty color and made it feel unique. I felt like something straight out of a fairytale in the long train, intricate beading, and chiffon flowers. It was the princess dress every girl dreams of.

The guestbook |  Our trips usually consist of the two of us jumping in the car and exploring, so we collected vintage postcards leading up to the wedding and asked our guests to help us make a road trip guide. They wrote on the card that reminded them of a place they loved and now we have a collection of travel tips and lovely notes to flip through!

This Wedding Will Remind You Just What Marriage is Truly All About

This wedding is beautiful. Insanely beautiful… and filled with those crazy cool details we sooo love here at SMP.  But beyond all of the gorgeous + intricately planned moments is the story of Claire and Alex, two people whose immense love for one another goes beyond those lush florals and stunning blue hues.  It’s a “loyalty” that shines through each and every moment captured by the talented Caroline Lima, and will warm your hearts just the way it should. See what marriage is all about in THE VAULT right here.

From Caroline Lima Photography… As I’m getting to know my couples, I usually ask them to put pen to paper and answer a few questions about themselves and their relationship. Their answers are always interesting, and quite often inspiring and intensely personal. When I asked Claire what made her fall in love with Alex, her first response was ‘his loyalty’. When I asked Alex the same question, his first response was…can you guess? ‘Her loyalty’. This couple has truly stood by each other’s sides. They’ve faced several of Life’s curve balls together, with their families close at hand. Claire’s dad (with whom she was very close) passed away last August, and when Alex proposed, he chose to do so in the place where he felt most connected to the man who had raised the love of his life…on the golf course just outside Claire’s parents’ home.

Claire and Alex have been writing their story together for 8 years now, since meeting at a party in college. With so much shared history, it seemed perfect that they were married at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, which has its own amazing and storied past. The deep emotion and meaning of the day was present in every detail. Claire was radiant beneath her mother’s veil! As her brother walked her down the aisle, I found myself moved to the core.

The celebration continued at the Carolina Country Club. The shared joy of everyone in attendance was evidenced in the smiles, the tears, the laughter throughout the day. Like many weddings, there was sunlight, music, dancing…But as I watched Claire and Alex through my lens, I kept seeing the loyalty that they spoke of when I first met them. To know someone…to truly know them over many years, to love them for who they are…and to choose loyalty again and again… That is what marriage is really about.

From forage and filmThis sweet summer event was full of the most gorgeous details that were not only so beautiful, but also very meaningful!

The day started with friends, family and loved ones, including their sweet dog, sipping mimosas and enjoying the moment. After getting into that gorgeous dress, we were all blown away by the amazing florals. While stunning in their own right, what made the bridal bouquet even more special was that it was a replica of her grandmother’s arrangement from her wedding! The sweet reminder was extra special.

The couple chose to say their vows in a Catholic Church, but returned to the historic mansion for the party, where you could see the groom’s heritage in the Canadian flags placed around on pillows, and corn hole boards. But you also got to see some more of the bride’s heritage, like the stunning blue sweetheart table chairs with their new initials. The chairs were actually the bride’s grandmother’s chairs! They fit with the day just perfectly. But one element we really loved was the lack of cake! In its place was a gourmet ice cream bar! Instead of cutting the cate this amazing couple scooped some ice cream!

We loved the simple yet romantic eucalyptus strung banquet tables which let the beautiful bouquets really shine.

We adored this sweet couple and all the time we got to spend with them and know their marriage will be 10x more beautiful than their perfect day.
