Anna + Jeff’s Classic Chapel Hill Wedding

Anna and Jeff’s photographs from the fabulous Blue Barn Photography team have finally arrived, and I cannot wait to share these stunning images with y’all!! Their timeless southern wedding was perfectly captured, and I am so excited for you all to get to experience the magic that took place on July 22nd at the beloved Carolina Inn.

Anna and Jeff’s special day was nothing short of perfection. The classic color scheme, exquisite florals, and flawless signage was enough to make anyone swoon. The day was filled with touches of Carolina blue, plenty of classic black & white, and stunning greenery. Needless to say, it was flawless. This wedding was extra special to me, because I was not only the wedding planner but the florist! It was such an honor to be Anna and Jeff’s florist, and it was so rewarding to see all of the gorgeous bouquets and arrangements come to life. (I couldn’t have done it without my incredible team, by the way – or my husband who let our home be filled with over a thousand flowers for several days!)

Anna and Jeff’s big day took place in Chapel Hill, and it did not disappoint! Their ceremony took place at the University United Methodist Church where they said “I do” and performed communion surrounded by the sweetest friends and family. Afterwards, everyone headed to The Carolina Inn for an outdoor cocktail hour complete with a bluegrass string band, and a gorgeous reception filled with delicious food, college mascots (UNC and UGA!), and the best company. The dance floor was packed all night long, and it was such a fun celebration for these two dearly loved people.

This precious couple is so special to me, and I am so honored and humbled to have gotten to plan and be such a huge part of their special day. We spent over 1.5 years dremaing up, designing, and planning this incredibly special day, and I loved getting to know Anna so well along the way – what a treasure she and Jeff are! The highlight of the day was sitting down with Anna during the reception and eating a slice of wedding cake together (so sweet – and her idea!!). It was an incredible day, and I wish these newlyweds the happiest of marriages!

I can’t get enough of these breathtaking photos so I hope you enjoy them as much as I am!

Kasey and Michael’s Raleigh Wedding

BBT-KaseyMichael-3215

Kasey and Michael were married earlier this summer in downtown Raleigh at The Stockroom at 230, which you may remember from their wedding sneak peek a couple weeks ago! Their wedding day was stunning, fun, and heartfelt, and we are so thankful and honored to have been a part of their big day. And now that their wedding images from the incredibly talented team at Blue Barn Photography have arrived, we can’t wait any longer to share them with you! Taylor from Blue Barn is truly phenomenal (and a dear friend!), and she and her team outdid herself with these photographs. They completely capture the palpable joy, excitement, and love from Kasey and Michael’s wedding day!

Kasey and Michael tied the knot on May 20th, and their entire wedding day was nothing less than spectacular! It was a beautiful (and very hot) day in downtown Raleigh, where their friends and family from New York City and all over came to celebrate their beautiful love. The ceremony and reception were held at The Stockroom at 230, which was the perfect urban venue for the occasion.

Their special day consisted of mauve, blush, creams, navy, greenery, and perfectly thought-out details! Kasey did a fantastic job doing the so many of the calligraphy details herself, rofm the signs to the place cards. I love that she her own touch on the details, which made them so much more special and meaningful! There were plenty of lush peonies, market lights in the ceremony and reception spaces, rose gold details, and a fabulous chalkboard wall as a focal point. Kasey and Michael live in NYC and planned their entire wedding from afar, and I absolutely loved getting to know this couple. Kasey has such incredible style, which you can definitely see in her bridal attire and accessories, the gowns she chose for her beautiful bridesmaids, and so many of the meaningful and gorgeous details throughout their wedding. This sweet couple was an absolute pleasure to work with (I miss them already!), and their wedding party was a dream as well. We absolutely loved being there for their day, and we hope you swoon over these photos as much as we are!
