This Bride. She glows. Wrapped in lace and her rich locks in a low loose bun, it makes me want to get dressed up for my wedding day all over again. Every single snap of this day from Ashley Bosnick does, including the cozy candlelit reception at 128 South. Thankfully, THE VAULT gallery is at my fingertips so I can click my way through every bit.
From The Bride…I wasn’t really ever the one who thought about her wedding day since she was a little girl, but when my family took me to Italy for my 16th birthday I absolutely fell in love. When Chris proposed a few years later I knew I wanted that simple, yet romantic Italian country side feeling for my wedding day. I was so blessed to be able to get married in the same church that my parents and grandparents had gotten married in years before me, and 128 South right down the street was the perfect place for our reception. It had that perfect exposed brick, warm and romantic Italian feel we were looking for and Design Perfection did a wonderful job bringing my vision to life with my favorite peach Juliet roses and beautiful lush greenery surrounded by hundreds of romantic candles. I may be biased but it was the most beautiful and fun wedding I have ever been to! I pictured myself wearing something completely different on my wedding day but when I found my dress I just knew my grandpa, who passed away not long before the wedding, would’ve loved it and that was so important to me. I am so thankful for my parents who did so much and made our perfect day possible. Our wedding day, surrounded by our closest friends and family, was easily the best day of my life to date. I am beyond lucky to have found the one who will forever be my always and to have married my soulmate. I believe God thought of me when he made Chris, we are absolutely meant to be. We look forward to many more adventures together and can’t wait to see what the future has to hold.

From Perry Vaile… Set in the misty chill of a rainy Fall day at the stunning Graylyn Estate, this shoot commands any brides who may find themselves worrying about weather at their wedding, to see the beauty in the the inherently romantic nature of a rain-filled day. Film photographer Perry Vaile shot in heavy rain and with a direction towards quiet romance to capture the feeling of their English-inspired setting, while Rebecca Rose Creative flexed her many creative talents by embracing the fall leaves and natural palette for the beautiful styling, design and florals of this shoot.
Hair & Makeup artist Lindsey Regan Thorne created a beautifully relaxed yet classic look that could withstand the weather, while Trumpet & Horn provided a gorgeous diamond ring, along with a BHLDN gown that is sure to inspire. Luxe napkins by Nuage Linens highlighted a layered table design which featured flatware and glassware rentals by Party Reflections, and a delicate gold-rimmed cake from Cakes by Chloe.

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.

When a nearby hurricane delivered rainy skies to this darling duo’s big day, they didn’t let it damper their spirits one bit. Instead, they strapped on their rain boots, grabbed an umbrella and celebrated in true Southern style with lush bouquets from Greg Hall & Company, sweet bridesmaid frocks from Show Me Your MuMu and a world of beautiful images from Sawyer Baird. Head to THE VAULT to soak it all in.

From Sawyer Baird…Hillary & Jay have the sweetest and honestly the most upbeat attitude than most people. When they found out that a hurricane was hitting the coast & the major rain was going to be moving through on their wedding day – they were a little let down but not much later Hillary whipped out her Hunter boots and was a complete trooper.
Hillary wanted just a fun celebration – and I think it shows. From Show Me Your MuMu bridesmaid gowns and dancing the night away. Nobody was even focused on the weather, just the beautiful love of these two.
