Nestled in the mountains, Sarah and Adam’s North Carolina wedding day had a charming outdoorsy vibe inspired by the beautiful setting that surrounded them. With Southern traditions, and tributes to their beloved labrador, this couple’s wedding was full of memorable moments and personal touches that made for one meaningful day of celebration.
We love that Adam followed the Southern tradition of burying a bottle of bourbon to ward off rain on their wedding day, and it definitely did the trick! The day was full of sunshine making for the most beautiful and scenic views as they prepared for the day at a cabin where Sarah’s family frequently vacationed, and then later as they tied the knot at High Hampton Inn & Country Club.
Morning Light truly captured the serene setting for this couple’s wedding beautifully, and we love the intentionality of every design choice they made.
Sarah shared some insight regarding the design of their wedding day.
“The wedding was inspired by the natural beauty of the area. I wanted the flowers to feel like they were collected during a hike through the woods. I love how lush the forest is there (in fact, it actually qualifies as a rainforest!) The area where I got ready is a very special place to my family. For as long as I can remember, it has been the site for our family vacations. Our dog also played an important role on our wedding day: she appeared on our Save the Date cards, walked down the aisle, and was represented by labrador figurines on reception tables. As a special final touch, I used my grandmother’s broach in my bouquet!”
We love the little details that they pulled together to make their day extra special. Our favorite detail in their design has to be the small lab figurines that served as table number holders. It’s such a small and subtle detail, but for these pet parents, we love that it gave a nod to their favorite furry friend.
