From Erin McLean Events… Kate + Michael’s summer wedding was inspired by the first place the two met – during their days at Wake Forest University. Kate wanted her wedding day to pay tribute to their Alma Mater – the place that brought them together – so she chose the magnolia leaf as her inspiration which is the school’s flower symbol. From their stunning invitation suite lined with magnolia accents to the greenery draped from their gold chiavari chairs at the head table – their wedding day was filled with notes of the couple’s beginning.

Their wedding day was filled with late summer sunshine and was a perfect reflection on this sweet couple. Surrounded by their closest loved ones, the couple said “I do” in the picturesque walls of The Chapel of the Cross and celebrated the night away in a ballroom filled with sparkle and laughter.

From Erin McLean EventsLorea is a true Southern lady with an infections laugh and great style. She met her sweet groom Kyle while working together on Capital Hill. We playful called the theme of her wedding was blush and bashful with just the right dash of gold glitter.

When we started designing her wedding it was clear that Lorea and Kyle wanted their wedding to have an effortless elegance. We used greenery and soft blush peonies as the floral inspiration. The florist used gorgeous green garland that mimicked their fun and pretty invitations.

Following a tearful and sentimental wedding ceremony the wedding guests made their way to the Front Porch of the Carolina Inn and were met with passed fried green tomatoes, lamb lollipops, beef bourguignon, and more scrumptious appetizers.

Guests were then ushered into the the gorgeous black and white floor reception with plenty of rose gold sequin and garland. The guests danced all night and the bride and groom made their joyful sparkler to close out the evening.

From Nouveau EventsJennifer and Kevin have been together since they were juniors in high school (just over 10 years). They were long distance in high school and even throughout college (she was at The University of Texas at Austin and he was at Tulane). They moved to North Carolina in 2010 to attend graduate school and start building their life together. Kevin proposed in April 2014, on a picnic in a garden among the spring flowers.

When Jennifer was asked to describe her wedding style, three words summed it up: ethereal, romantic, and authentic. The inspiration for this wedding was based on their desire for a soft, romantic color palette with eclectic flower arrangements. For this reason, a color palette of blush, gold and ivory was selected. Jennifer and Kevin really wanted an outdoor ceremony that had a garden theme which seemed only fitting considering that the venue itself was a botanical garden. The North Carolina Botanical Gardens is an award winning Green space and keeping with the style of the venue, succulent wedding favors, a birch wood chuppah, and a ketubah with a tree design were incorporated. In addition, Beau Catering used seasonal and local grown food for the menu which is an encouraged green practice.

The details found in Jennifer and Kevin’s wedding were sentimental and unique to the couple. The ketubah was personalized for the couple by an artist named Jerise Fogel in New York City. Their dog, Abbie, also played a special role in their wedding day as her dog tag was Jennifer’s “something borrowed” and the ketubah also included her depiction.
