Take a Trip Around the World with This Travel-Inspired Wedding

This North Carolina wedding from Leigh Pearce Weddings is every Francophile’s dream. The Bride walked down the aisle on her father’s arm to “La Vie en Rose.” The flower girl carried an American flag while her ring bearer counterpart wore a beret and carried a French one. The pastor said the vows in English and the Bride and Groom repeated them in French. Does it get any more romantic than that? See all the pretty from Boonetown Story in The Vault!

From The Bride…I met my husband while teaching English in France after college. Since then we’ve traveled all over the world; so from the beginning of wedding planning, we knew we wanted the overarching theme to be travel inspired. Leigh Pearce did such a great job creating this for us, without the theme being overwhelming or tacky. The small details made everything so perfect. Our seating chart was a world map, our cocktail napkins read “love knows no borders,” and our guests waved miniature French and American flags for our exit — just to name a few.

I knew from the moment I saw the Belmont Estate that I wanted to be married there. It’s a classic, Southern house set back on a large piece of property in rural North Carolina, and was such a beautiful backdrop to our wedding day. I wanted a fall-like color scheme, but wanted to avoid yellows and orange, so we went with a palette of bordeaux with gold, cream, and blush accents. My bridesmaids were beautiful in their bordeaux dresses!

For the ceremony, the flower girl walked down the aisle with an American flag, while the ring bearer (wearing a beret!), carried a French flag. I walked down the aisle with my dad to a string duet playing my favorite French song “La Vie en Rose.” The pastor said our vows in English, and we repeated in French, so that the Americans and the French in attendance could both understand. My sister-in-law and my husband’s sister did a reading together — alternating in English and French.

Our beautiful day wouldn’t have been possible without our wedding planner, Leigh Pearce, or without my sweet sweet parents. We’re forever grateful.

It’s All About the Dress, But This Groom Brought His Style A-Game

I love a pretty wedding dress, and this Bride’s lace gown definitely qualifies as pretty. But her handsome Groom ensured he was equally stylish with his unique bow tie made of feathers. And that’s just the start of this stylish day. From the custom family crest featuring the couple’s dogs to the bouquets full of dahlias, garden roses and pieris, this southern affair is as stylish and elegant as they come. See every pretty detail from Allison Kuhn Photography in The Vault!

From Allison Kuhn Photography… Leah Jane & Dustin were married September 19, 2015 at The Duke Mansion. Their elegant southern affair planned and designed by Katrina Hutchins of Come Together Events. Their wedding incorporated soft tones mixed with some bold colors to create a fresh color palette unique to Leah Jane and Dustin. The stationery included a custom family crest and includes images of Leah-Jane and Dustin’s dogs. The stationery suite designed by Elisabeth Rose was thoughtfully created to include elements of Leah Jane and Dustin’s life. The bouquets were filled with color florals and long, flowy silk ribbons. The bow ties that Dustin and his groomsmen wore are made of feathers. Leah Jane made and jarred her guests wedding favors of different jams which included the recipe and crest on a paper tag. The cake by The Wow Factor Cakes also included the crest and the details of their invitation suite.

Leah Jane and Dustin live in Charlotte, NC , but met in Raleigh. Dustin proposed in Charleston South Carolina while on vacation for the Fourth of July. He hired a horse carriage for a historic tour and they walked around the Waterfront Park, Dustin suggested they take a photo in front of a large pineapple fountain. He asked somebody to take the photo, but he wrote on the screen of his phone asking the man to record the proposal.

Dustin is also a former active-duty Marine.

Together this couple is kind, patient and leave headed and will have a beautiful life together.

From Erin McLean EventsWhen we initially met with Valerie and Bobby, we knew they were going to be so much fun to work with. Valerie had visions of gold, blush, and sparkle dancing through her head – and we loved it! She came to us with a fall wedding date and a soft take on all things glamorous. Valerie is a natural beauty, so we wanted to create a day that built on her easy elegance and the fading warm glow of a fall afternoon.

Selecting the Pavilions at the Angus Barn fit that vision to a T. We started with a soft color palette of blushes, ivories, and shimmering hints of champagne. To bring an understated but definite pop to the design, we added a deep purple – which was also an ode to the couple’s alma mater, East Carolina University.

Early in the planning process, Valerie and her family hopped a flight to New York City for a trip to famed Kleinfeld’s Bridal to be featured on “Say Yes to the Dress”. She didn’t disappoint, selecting a show stopping Pnina Tornai design with a fitted sheer lace bodice, crystal encrusted neckline, and gorgeous satin bow detail on the back. It was such a delight to see Valerie’s sheer joy on the show when she found the perfect gown.

Throughout the months of planning, Valerie and Bobby’s main hope was that their guests were treated to an amazing experience from start to finish. They chose a mouth-watering menu – though the Angus Barn doesn’t serve anything but to die for fare and for entertainment, the couple went with a Carolina favorite, the beach music kings themselves, The Embers. Again, did not disappoint. I want to say the icing on the cake was perhaps her bridesmaid gown choice. The girls donned Adrianna Papell numbers in varying styles, and shades of blush, champagne and gold. Each was detailed in shimmering beading and flowing skirts. Paired with lush bouquets of peonies and garden roses and just a pop of marsala, the ensemble was perfection.

On their wedding day, the couple chose the newer tradition of having a first look. Planned for the sweeping front porch of her family’s home, Valerie stepped out to meet her groom. The happiness that was captured in that moment was the sum of the couple’s sweet relationship – their joy was infectious and carried them onto their vows at Valerie’s childhood chapel surrounded by all their friends and loved ones, and then to the glow of their lakeside reception at the Angus Barn just as the warm Fall sunshine was setting on the horizon.

The couple said their goodbyes at the conclusion of a lovely and oh so happy celebration under a shower of rose petals and hopped into Bobby’s pick-up truck and off on their next grand adventure together!
