I’m not sure who came up with our modern reception convention, but I’m glad they did. Weddings are full of so much joy and happiness, it’s preposterous to think you could do anything but dance. And as you can see from We Are Caravan‘s video, this couple knows how to throw one heck of a party. This video is so good, it’ll make you want to jump on in with them by the end. So let the toe-tapping begin!
From We Are Caravan
…Danielle and Matthew are a beautiful couple we had the privilege to work with this past October, and we loved their idea for a small, intimate wedding ceremony at the Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, NC followed a couple days later by a big reception with all their friends and family at Byron’s Southend here in Charlotte. Isn’t Danielle’s dress AMAZING? Also who doesn’t love a wedding band called Mr. Potato Head and a glow stick send off? Needless to say, I think their reception was a pretty good time. We had so much fun working with all the other vendors for this wedding.

This wedding had us at hello with that bridal gown and, who are we kidding, the shoes are pretty phenomenal too. It’s Carolina Herrera and Valentino meets a classic black tie affair in Chapel Hill.

From Graham Terhune Photography…Heather and Robert celebrated a stunning Chapel Hill wedding in the middle of April. The Cherry trees were in full blossom and the overcast day created the most fantastic light for the intimacy of Heather and Robert’s wedding day. We were impressed by all of the classic and thoughtful details that the two incorporated into their wedding celebration. All of the wedding elements were timeless and created an elegant atmosphere that permeated the entire day.
In addition to their stunning outward appearances, Heather and Robert are two of the classiest, kindest and most genuine couples with whom we have worked. We felt the calmness of their wedding day and it allowed us to photograph in the moment and capture the tender emotions between Heather, Robert and their loved ones.
Heather and Robert’s reception venue was at a private residence in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and it provided the perfect backdrop for the wonderful event. Their gorgeous backyard tent was full of special elements including a magnolia wreath chandelier, baby’s breath arrangements and a sitting area complete with shawls for the ladies. The food served was not only delicious but absolutely stunning works of art.
