Classic Carolina Inn Wedding for Anna and Jeff

It’s wedding week for Anna and Jeff, and I couldn’t be more excited for them to become husband and wife in Chapel Hill this weekend!! Their wedding is filled with classic Southern charm, lots of personalized details that speak to who they are as a couple, and nods to their sweet families and legacies. There will be lots of black and white details (included black and white striped ribbons on the bridesmaid bouquets), loads of lush white flowers, creative ways to incorporate their beloved doggies Maddie and Winston into the design, and a huge, fun wedding party!


We’ve been planning their wedding for over 1.5 years (the longest I’ve ever planned for one client!), and I am honored to be both their wedding planner + florist! They’re having a quintessential Chapel Hill wedding, which is forever a favorite of mine: they’ll be exchanging their vows at University United Methodist Church on Franklin Street and then enjoying a fun-filled cocktail hour and reception at the Carolina Inn – with lots of surprises for the guests throughout the day! Stay tuned over the coming week for lots of fun behind the scenes as I prep for their wedding… and, as always, follow along for more over on Instagram!

As always, I’m especially excited to get to bring Anna and Jeff’s dream wedding day to life (they are the BEST!) alongside a dream team of wedding vendors: Blue Barn Photography, Dogwood Media, the Carolina Inn, Haylily Designs, Counterclockwise String Band, 10 Spot Band, Teighla Norris, and Simply Cakes. There’s so much to look forward to on Saturday, and I can’t wait for these two lovebirds to tie the knot!!

Black and white stripes: I love them! Classic yet modern. A statement design. Done correctly, black and white striped accents at a wedding are perfection! They are their own statement piece, yet they bring out the other colors at your wedding, especially with pink flowers and accents. Which are your favorite ways to style black and white stripes? I love the table runners – and the bows! Would you have black and white stripes at your wedding?! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this graphic pop of design!
