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!

Angela and Jason’s Chapel Hill Wedding

Angela and Jason’s special day at The Parlour at Manns Chapel was nothing short of amazing! The day was intimate and family-oriented, and the love these two have for each other radiated through the chapel. The day was filled with stunning floral arrangements, family photos, and in true Southern fashion, barbecue! Angela’s classic Southern style was showcased through their gorgeous vintage china and blulsh and blue glassware from Southern Vintage Table, her lush blush pink and white florals impeccably done by Serendipity Designs, and the use of greenery throughout the venue and outside in the courtyard. I loved being able to plan, design, and style this wedding from start to finish, to get to know this incredible couple and their families, and to bring their dream wedding day to life in a very community-focused way. It was a sweet Southern dream!

The farmhouse tables at The Parlour made for the perfect setting for their Southern family style dinner. The rustic charm and romantic Southern accents were the perfect pair. Surrounded by family, friends, and their three children, Angela and Jason celebrated their love with great food and great company. Their ceremony was set inside the beautifully restored chapel (which Jason had visited as a child!), and we transitioned to the courtyard for cocktail hour. There, we had the Cottage Luxe Hemingway Bar, serving delicious signature cocktails in vintage blush and blue glassware. Angela and Jason enjoyed their first dance outside before we moved back into the chapel for dinner and dancing.


It was such a pleasure working with this phenomenal and sweet couple; they are truly amazing! When I first met with Angela and Jason many months ago, I asked Jason what he wanted to prioritize during their wedding. His answer made me tear up: “I just want to make sure I never see a sad look on Angela’s face.” Melting! The way these two love each other is so evident, and their love story is simply beautiful and inspiring. I have longed to plan a wedding where its focus was on marriage, the beautiful details were meticulously chosen and meaningful, and it was an intimate, family and community-focused day, and this wedding was all that and more. The whole wedding day was flawless thanks to our amazing vendor team. I am wishing these two the happiest of marriages and all the love, laughter, and joy in the world!
