From Rebecca Rose Events… Emily and Loren’s wedding in Winston-Salem, North Carolina was as simple and classic as it was full of joy. These two chose to celebrate in the city of Emily’s alma mater and said their vows at the historic Wait Chapel on the campus of Wake Forest University. Their reception, at the University’s beautiful Graylyn Estate, embodied the epitome of great southern hospitality. The food and beverages were delicious and plentiful, the decor was simple and classic and the laughter and joy were infectious.
Working with these two was such a delight. Emily loves bold, vibrant colors and playful patterns. Loren was game for all of those things, so we had a great time selecting design elements that represented a modern take on some classic wedding elements.

My biggest color obsession yet this year? A good, rich pop of red. The kind of red that is peeking it’s pretty head into every detail of this sophisticated Southern shoot from Mark Potter Photography and Kerri Leigh Events. And those blooms from Amy Lynne Originals? Well they made it into just about every single image because they’re so. darn. gorgeous. See what I mean right here.

From Mark Potter Photography…This sophisticated and stylish wedding inspiration was photographed on film at the picturesque Graylyn International Conference Center in Winston Salem, North Carolina. Kerri Leigh Events styled the affair using beautiful deep rich shades of red, plum, burgundy and pink. Different textures were incorporated into the design with the use of stone, wood, and gold accents. The bride wore a gorgeous Amsale (Quinn) gown and the groom wore a stylish black tuxedo. His red, gold, and green boutonniere added a punch of class and color. The bride’s flowers complimented the overall design with a loose bouquet highlighting lovely greens and splashes of the deep reds and pinks. The use of a Rolls Royce wedding car added a level of sophistication and style that compliments the feel of this estate like venue. The images were created on film, giving a beautiful, soft, and dreamy feel. We love the whole feel of this styled shoot and feel that SMP readers would gain lots of inspiration from the different elements and overall cohesiveness of this set.

If you’re nervous about rain on your wedding day, take note. This couple did not let it bring their outdoor ceremony inside, and it’s all the more romantic because of that decision. Anna Routh Photography captured the day which was filled with love, laughter, and beautiful blooms from Amy Lynne Originals, and it’s amazing.
From the photographer… Caroline and George were married on an incredibly rainy day in Winston-Salem. You’d think that would affect the bride and groom as they prepare to walk down the aisle and start their life together as husband and wife – not these two. The rain couldn’t stop them from having their dream outdoor wedding. Guests sat under umbrellas and Caroline even processed under an umbrella as she came down the aisle towards her dapper groom. The stunning florals, bright colors and the smiles on Caroline and George’s faces made this day anything but dreary. One of my favorite details was that every single floral design was different – every bouquet, every flower crown, ever centerpiece, every boutonniere, etc. And, there wasn’t really a ‘color’ for the day. Caroline wanted to focus on bright, cheery colors which completely match her beautiful and fun personality. What followed their sweet ceremony was nothing short of an amazing night. Guests tore up the dance floor, enjoyed the photo booth and ate popsicles under the stars. It was a beautiful evening for two beautiful people!
