Classic Glamour in Durham

We love it when weddings put glamorous spins on tradition. Read: this glitzy Jewish ceremony from Erin McLean. Rich pink and white florals from Tre Bella complimented the glittery gold while the The Cotton Room provided the perfect atmosphere for a party that lasted long into the night. Nancy Ray captured some stunning photos from the day and there’s all waiting right here!

Event Venue

From Nancy Ray PhotographyThis elegant evening wedding celebration took place at the Cotton Room in Durham, NC. Erin McLean designed and planned the details with her classic glamorous style. Some of the unique features include real snow on the dance floor, a lovely chandelier, silhouette menus, glitter tablecloths, candlelight, silhouette chair signs, and pink hues throughout the decor. What I especially love about this wedding is the rich Jewish tradition that was so important to this couple. I hope you enjoy this classic wedding, rich with tradition!

Preppy

From Robyn Van Dyke PhotographyThis gorgeous, southern wedding was inspired by seersucker and a joyful, preppy color combination of pink & green! This couple met while they were both working on a summer internship in D.C., and happily tied the knot this past summer on August 3rd! Their wedding day was so beautiful with all the green seersucker bow ties & details throughout their ceremony & reception, and I just loved how the bridesmaids’ lime-green Lula Kate dresses made the beautiful pink bouquets just pop! Erin McLean Events did a beautiful job with the design of the event to make the bride’s vision come true with pink sequin tablecloths, green wreaths, green seersucker wrapped vases, ties, and even decorated the fireplace mantle with candles wrapped in green seersucker bows! The pink lighting also added so much to the atmosphere of the gorgeous event and after lots of celebration and dancing, the couple happily departed with all of their guests waving green & pink ribbon wands!

Colorful Farm to Table Wedding Inspiration

If I wasn’t craving springtime already, this gorgeous shoot from Ashlee Little Weddings + Events and Kendall Lynnette Photography will have me begging Punxsutawney Phil to rethink his prediction of an early spring. Sitting in this gallery is everything I just adore about that wonderful season – bright blooms, pretty dresses and farm to table dinners – so if you need me today, I’ll be devouring all the goodness right here.

From Ashlee Little Weddings + EventsThere is something about picking a tomato right off the vine on a hot afternoon in North Carolina, the steam rising from the ground following an afternoon rain shower, and shucking corn right on your front porch. The soil in the South has a certain richness to it that cultivates a beautiful final product.Our styled shoot celebrates the ability to take product from the ground straight to your plate – Farm to Table.

Set at a fabulous private residence in Durham, North Carolina, the white-washed farm table from Simply Put Vintage Rentals featured bountiful vegetables, fresh-cut blooms, and vintage place settings. A gorgeous mustard colored settee and other furniture details provided a beautiful backdrop for our bride and bridesmaids. Carrying hand tied bouquets of dahlias, chrysanthemums, zinnias, and celosia, our bridesmaids wore casual dresses from LaMaLu Boutique with bow back details. The bride wore a champagne colored gown with an ivory lace overlay, and her hair featured a gorgeous braided crown detail.

The final product has us ready to put on our cowboy boots and pull a chair up to the table!
