Lauren envisioned a beautiful garden theme for her wedding day and there couldn’t have been a more perfect setting than the Carolina Inn in summertime. But Lauren + Mac didn’t just choose the Inn for its charm and beauty – they also had a sentimental reason, they met there! We loved the tying in the soft blush, pinks, and greens with the theme – it couldn’t have turned out more perfect!
This lovely cake by Sweet Memories bakery was the perfect fir with the garden party!

The light was magnificent as it came through all the windows at this Blue Zone wedding overlooking Kenan Stadium! A traditional church ceremony started the day and the Bridal Party and guests traveled via trolley to the reception. Colleen and Dale kept their wedding day fresh and classic!
We loved the blue and gray palette that was accented with white and green florals. The Blue Zone added a modern backdrop and a surprise guest joined cocktail hour – the UNC mascot, Ramses!
Glass vases, metallic linens, and mirrored table “numbers” created the right amount of shiny touches to add a little glamor to the reception.
Best wishes Colleen and Dale, what an amazing night of memories! Thank you to all the vendors who worked together to make this wedding so beautiful.

Susan, Rob and their families were a joy to for us to work with! They had so much history going back to their childhood and family ties to The Carolina Inn which made the wedding weekend extra special for everyone. It truly made for the perfect love story! From their cocktail hour on the front porch of The Carolina Inn to their confetti popper exit, this couple was just adorable. Guests danced into the night to the talented tunes of Groovetown and snacked on fresh Krsipy Kreme doughnuts to cap off the evening. Yum!
How amazing is this photo reenactment of Susan & Rob when they growing up in the same church they married in! Such an cool keepsake!
Susan and her mom chose so many sweet touches to add to the wedding night. We loved the generations of family wedding photos on display! The signage provided by Calligraphy by Carrie added charm and style too.
This cake by Miel Bon Bon was jaw-dropping. The detail was exquisite – definitely a show stopper.
We loved the bold color palette Susan chose. It was the perfect blend of fall colors with the already beautiful decor in Old Well.
This was all possible with an amazing team of vendors! We wish Susan + Rob so much happiness!

I so love the neckline of this Pronovias Gown!
Maybe it is the model’s amazing bun (how do I get that?) or the lighting. Whatever it is, this is so feminine!
Love it or Leave it?
Make it Pretty!
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It was super hot here in Raleigh, but it was a good excuse to get some pool time it!
My brides are always looking for ideas for their wedding hair. I pulled a few off of the Knot that I think are so pretty!
