North Carolina family-style wedding

Caroline and Clancy’s wedding was an outdoor affair centered around love and family. The two walked down the aisle together, both wearing white wedding gowns. The outdoor ceremony, which took place in the shade of an awning, was filled with friends and family. 

After the ceremony, guests transitioned locations at the venue for the reception, taking place outdoors under the glow of twinkling string lights. Guests sat down for a family-style meal. Sitting together at long tables, everyone enjoyed a delicious meal and table-side wine. Each table was decorated with floral centerpieces in varying hues of pink, ranging from pale to bright, with pops of green from the cloth napkins at each place setting. The colorful flowers were also spotted on the wedding cake, a two-layer, half-naked cake. 

Clancy and Caroline incorporated family photos, flower crowns and a personalized catering menu into their wedding day. The couple’s gorgeous affair was intimate, personal and a true reflection of their tastes and values.
