A traditional bride and groom and a classically elegant wedding style, this North Carolina wedding day was filled with monogrammed details, classic designs, and an abundance of emotion that made it incredibly special.
Set at the Greensboro Country Club, Sunshower Photography captured a day full of special moments that will forever hold their memories. By Invitation Only Events and Design guided Matt and Emily throughout their planning and coordinated the execution of every detail.
From custom made tuxes worn by the groomsmen to the elegance of the slate blue hues of their color palette, their classic style could be seen at every turn. One of our favorite elements was the incorporation of their custom crest throughout many elements of their day, but especially in the crest cufflinks that Emily gifted her groom at the beginning of the day.
We hope you love every sweet moment of Emily and Matt’s North Carolina wedding day, along with the sweet words that this couple reflected on as they looked back on their wedding day.
Tell us a little a bit about your wedding.
Matt and I both really like classic and elegant details, and our wedding venue really inspired the entire look of our wedding. Our venue had intricate crystal chandeliers, black and white marble floors, and beautiful decor. We used colors that complemented the existing decor and added beautiful greenery to the crystal chandeliers. We each took some time before the ceremony to look at the ballroom before everyone else saw it. I loved having that moment to see all of our hard work and planning come together! Everything was absolutely stunning.
What were your favorite parts of the day? (memories and stories)
One of our favorite wedding day memories was seeing each other for the first time at the ceremony. We are both very traditional, and it was important for us to wait to see each other during the ceremony. When the doors opened Matt was so emotional, and I had to resist the urge to run down the aisle to him! It was such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony and I was so glad that we didn’t do a first look!
Please describe any DIY, handmade, or personal details.
Our favorite wedding day detail was the custom crest designed by ByFarr in Columbia. We wanted a vintage style interlocking monogram that could easily be used throughout our wedding and our home. Designing the crest was a labor of love, and they were so patient and helpful in making out vision come to life! We loved the crest so much that I had the crest engraved onto cufflinks for Matt’s wedding gift. It was also on most of our stationery on the wedding day!
Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?
One piece of advice I have for future couples planning their wedding is to make sure you continue to date your fiancé during wedding planning. That may sound so simple, but it is easy to get caught up in planning and only talking about wedding details when your together. We were really good about going on dates and not talking about the wedding. It was such a relief to just enjoy each other’s company without talking about vendors, registries, and hotel blocks.
From the details that made up their day to this sweet reminder from the bride, we love the great detail and attention that they poured into leading up to their wedding day!
