They planned a beautiful wedding at The Royal Banquet in Raleigh, NC following their ceremony at Meredith College. The happy couple pulled out all the stops when it came to personalizing their big day. Their good friend was the Officiant, and another good friend was their ceremony musician (Colleen has a musical background too). They themed the day around travel and the places they'd been to together.
Natalie found The Details just under the wire. We had less than two months until she tied the knot with Andrew but we hit it off upon meeting and it was a really romantic day. Natalie and Andrew have old souls and a classic, timeless love. Enjoy the journey you two!!
One of my favorite things is to see how couples incorporate their cultures into their special day. Christine and John, and their families, came together to celebrate their love and new journey into marriage. Christine's family brought a lot of decor that was inspired by their Filipino heritage and John made sure NC State was represented. Cheers to you both!

What do you do when you live more than 500 miles from the town you are planning your wedding? You get a wedding planner, stat. We couldn't be more thrilled to have our stars align with Anna and Tom, they were so special to work with. They have worked through lots of long distance and career changes and Anna serves in the military, and you can tell their bond is rock solid and they find joy and humor in it all. We worked really hard for about a year planning their special day from near and far. We had major planning sessions when they could come into town and we worked with their vendors really closely so that it all went off with the only hitch being Anna and Tom saying I do! There was a strong focus on using local vendors, like Pine State Flowers in Durham and the new 21c Hotel to get the squad ready. Seeing the planning come together here in Durham, NC at Duke Gardens (I know, swoon!) and The Pit Durham (hello, rooftop!) was magical! All of the mems were captured by the amazing Alicia Osbourne Photography company. We wish many years of happiness to you both!

Michelle and Carl met on Halloween so it was only fitting they'd have a spook-tacular wedding on Halloween too! The ceremony and reception took place at the Chapel Hill Carriage House, complete with guests in costume! Michelle DIY-d the heck out of their details, including a custom guest book that was a painting of a tree that each guest added their thumbprint as a leaf to, an extensive trick or treat bar, and we had tons of fun setting it all up. The Pit Durham provided the local BBQ and their themed cupcakes were by a friend. All of these special moments were captured by Nieto Photography We loved getting to know Michelle and Carl, they were such a happy couple, it seemed they were floating on air all night. Congrats!
