Sarah and Frank shared a simple and elegant North Carolina wedding day at The Bradford. Celebrating with family and friends, we love how they honored the importance of family in some of the sweet details of their wedding day.
Vision Events was an incredible support for this bride and groom as they navigated the planning process, and they did a beautiful job helping Sarah and Frank pull together every perfect detail. They chose a navy blue and white color palette that offered a sophisticated style that was accented with vintage details, and we love how Radian Photography captured every special moment of the day.
Make sure you catch the behind the scenes details that this couple shared with us! We just loved hearing about what moments and details were the most special as the celebrated their wedding day.
Tell us a little a bit about your wedding (your vision, color, style, and location choices).
Frank had worked with Nicole previously and told me to reach out to her as she was now a wedding planner. I knew from the first conversation I had with Nicole that she was going to plan our wedding!! I had always envisioned a small elegant and classic wedding. When we both saw the Bradford we both LOVED it and knew we wanted to get married there!! Bailey at The Bradford was fantastic to work with! We both love the color blue so that’s what we went with. I wanted a vintage, classic and elegant wedding and we wouldn’t have changed anything about our wedding day! It was PERFECT!!
What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?
The most important thing to us was to bring our family and friends together to celebrate the love we have for one another. Neither of us wanted to do a bouquet or garter toss. I had a vision so nothing was out of question.
Tell us about your wedding flowers.
BEAUTIFUL!! I knew they would be pretty when we had our meeting but when I saw them the day of the wedding I was blown away. Susan and her team exceeded my expectations!! All the white flowers you can think of and more were everywhere!! I wanted lots of flowers and I was not let down!! And the flower girls crowns….so cute!! We loved them so much!!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Nicole at Vision Events was with us for the whole wedding process. She was with us at every meeting and we talked often on the phone. If we had a question big or small she would answer it and if she didn’t know the answer would find it for me. She was a wonderful resource for picking vendors based on our discussions and budget. She kept us on track and made the planning process enjoyable and memorable. We both can’t think Nicole and her staff of Jen and Alex enough! They were wonderful and exceeded my expectations of a wedding planner!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?
Use all of my vendors…seriously we wouldn’t have wanted to use anyone else. We would highly recommend a wedding planner. I am a very busy manager for clinical research at Chiltern and Frank is the Head Golf Professional at UNC Finley golf course so neither of us had time to plan our wedding by ourselves. Nicole at Vision Events was AMAZING!!!
We absolutely love how this couple kept their family, and especially the groom’s daughter, involved throughout the planning of their wedding day. So many sweet memories that they will always be able to share, and we love how the details of their day came together in such a beautiful and seemingly effortless way.
