Spring Barn Wedding in Chapel Hill

Sweet tea and Southern weddings go together like PB & J. And while this Fearrington House soiree had the tea situation fully covered, that’s only the beginning. From the pint-sized succulent favors to the Bride’s gorgeous lace gown, the whole day was a nod to Southern grace from beginning to end. Get ready for photo goodness a la Anna Routh in the gallery right here.


From Anna Routh… Kristine and John were married on one of the first warm, spring days in Chapel Hill. Blue skies and beautiful spring blossoms watched over this sweet couple as they exchanged vows at the always stunning Fearrington Village. Kristine’s lace dress was the picture of elegance, and the succulent- heavy, colorful florals were the perfect accompaniment to her bridesmaid’s lovely navy lace dresses.

Guests enjoyed sweet tea and bluegrass in the orchard at The Fearrington before the ceremony – such a treat! The reception in the dreamy Fearrington barn was full of stunning spring florals, southern fare and lots of dancing. One of my favorite details of Kristine and John’s wedding was their succulent favors and the adorable chalk sign displayed with them. Kristine LOVES succulents, so these were the perfect gift for she and John’s friends and families. I am so excited to have been a part of this lovely day!

Colorful Nautical Wedding

This wedding has it all: adorable high school sweethearts, a fabulous seaside setting and an entire world of pretty styled to perfection by *21 Edenhurst.  It’s basically a rustic meets nautical dream come true… and if you love to see a navy and coral color palette playing nice with mason jars and sea shells (who doesn’t?), then check out every inch of the full gallery from Ali Caudill Photography.  It’s amazing.

From *21 EdenhurstLillian and Ricky’s wedding was one for the books. Dating as far back as the 6th grade and steady after the 10th, this was the celebration that all of their loved ones had anticipated and waited patiently for… for a long, long time. Both are about the sweetest people you’d ever want to meet, and their amazingly powerful friendship and beautiful love for each other was reflected so wonderfully in the details of their big day.

The bride chose a private rental home in Nags Head, NC which was convenient for their Northern VA guests, and also created a secondary vacation for the bride’s family who traveled from the UK to be there. The bride wanted to incorporate chevron prints in with the decor and she quickly landed on navy and coral to create a soft nautical touch. We chose twine and mason jars to incorporate her rustic vision, while also maintaining elements like seashells, beach glass, starfish and other pieces to find a balance for the location, all at a reasonable budget. The intimate setting of a private rental home allowed for many of the guests to stay overnight extending the party long after the vendors had left. We had a great time creating special touches like the starfish seating chart and the Photo Booth backdrop for the lovebirds to “sail into the sunset” together.

The night was perfect, even with the crazy winds coming off the sound. The night was all about fun and laughter with good music and plenty of Fireballs to go around. Congrats to the happy couple!

Traditional Ballroom Wedding

Without fail, traditional weddings always leave me speechless.  Why?  Because they’re the sort of wedding that perfectly combines glamour + classic stylings and props it up against a majestic setting like the Hyatt at the Bellevue ballroom.  Add in a talented team of vendors that includes the always amazing La Petite Fleur and the talented Philip Gabriel Photography and, well… there are no words.  See it all right here.


From La Petite Fleur… There’s something to be said for sophistication… it doesn’t trend, nor does it have moments… it is timeless. That said, at a time when weddings are characteristically colorful (pink wedding gowns!) and teaming with trends (the DIY look) – classic styling, like true love, is to be celebrated as unique.

This fall, Courtney and Kevin celebrated their love in a uniquely traditional style – infusing personality through very specific choices, beginning with their palette. This classy couple chose to paint their fall wedding in a rich sherbet palette and to collaborate with La Petite Fleur to design the quintessential downtown ballroom wedding.

The Bellevue glistened with gold and crystal accents at every turn, tables were dressed in pintuck linens, and garden blooms abounded in stunning bouquets; majestic candelabra arrangements atop petal-filled pedestals and sweet swags adorning the “Mr. & Mrs.” seats.

Even the entryway vignette embodied the couple’s unique signature sophisticated style. Blossom to blossom, more than 400 palette-coordinating roses were layered beneath a translucent tabletop to fashion a full floral linen-scape, upon which a gorgeous gold manzanita branch and pomander arrangement stood to greet guests. Then there were the unconventional confections – mini cakes and petite cupcakes – in shades of sherbet that further sweetened the uniqueness of the newlywed’s sophisticated soiree.

Colorful North Carolina Beach Wedding

Take a peek at this Southern beach wedding and just try not to crack a smile. I dare you. Because when you’ve got a day this bright and a couple this cute, there’s no way not to feel the joy for yourself. The Surf Club  played backdrop to all the colorful festivities and A.J. Dunlap Photography worked their magic behind the lens. Happy Tuesday, indeed!


From A.J. Dunlap Photography… This adorable tented beach wedding that took place on March 29th. The bride wore a J.Crew gown, and her girls had on the most adorable teal dresses! The guys were dressed to fit a beach club in khakis and blazers. From the colorful invites, to the sparkly Kate Spade shoes, and party dress the bride wore, it was a day full of style and fun.

Their ceremony took place under a huge white tent, adorned with a chandelier and wine barrels. Instead of the traditional guest book, they had guests sign a bench for them to keep at their home after the wedding! Moving inside for the reception, it was a lovely & simple beach club set up, with our favorite detail being the pie bar in lieu of a cake.
