To say I love these two is an understatement. Hilary and Jeff are so kind and warm. They immediately made me feel like part of the family! Their wedding day was picture perfect despite the crazy heat that weekend. Every June in North Carolina there is one weekend that no matter what you do, the humidity is at 1,000,000,000% and you just have to make everyone as comfortable as possible and pray for the best. That said, you would have never known it was 100+ degrees looking at Hilary in these photos! It was like there was a magical bubble around her all day and I swear I never saw her sweat (even though I know she was pretty toasty in her gown!!). Without further ado, I hope you enjoy these beautiful images from the fantastic Sara Logan as much as I do!
The bouquets from Joy at Blooms and Thistle were hands down the showstopper elements in our event design. They were all perfectly textured with juuuust enough color while still staying perfectly elegant and summery.
Autumn Creek Vineyards has the most lovely ceremony location. The quaint gazebo overlooks a picture perfect pond complete with a family of ducks.
There are a few photos I always search out first when I first see photos from my clients’ wedding — the cake cutting, the first look, and the march back down the aisle. To me, these are the moments where I find the most pure joy on my clients’ faces. I just ADORE this snap expertly captured by Sara!!
These bouquets are what wedding planners dream about.
Delicious Bakery never disappoints. This 4 tier beauty was not only gorgeous, but also delicious (pun intended!). My favorite detail was the cake topper, Better Together, as a nod to Hilary and Jeff’s first dance song. We also served cheesecake bites from Cheesecakes by Alex, the location of their engagement!
After cocktail hour and a choreographed first dance, guests were seated to enjoy a delectable dinner from Southern Roots. The menu started with a summer salad of organic greens with sliced strawberries, goat cheese, and candied walnuts with balsamic vinaigrette. Next guests dined on a buffet of roasted beef tenderloin, stuffed chicken with blue cheese, cream cheese, and fresh herbs, redskin potatoes, spaghetti squash casserole (so good y’all), and haricot vert salad with feta, red onion, and roasted red pepper.
