I love when a wedding day exudes warmth, and that was absolutely the case for Amber and Dustin’s beautiful day! The pair’s North Carolina wedding took place at The Saratoga Springs, where the space exudes a relaxed quality that makes it feel lived in and approachable, just like home. When I realized it was a venue (a Southern plantation, which explains the warm feeling!), I was over the moon. Charlotte couples, take note!
A+D’s soiree was oh-so-romantic and felt like it had been taken from the pages of the best storybook days. The girls got ready inside the plantation’s home where Amber slipped into her fantastic mermaid tulle gown. The bridesmaids donned grey floor length gowns (love them!), and the gents sported bow ties. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw Amber and Dustin’s first look, and the portraits with the wedding party are some of my favorites (the light is beautiful!).
The ceremony was held outside on the plantation’s lovely grounds, and a horse and carriage awaited the new Mr. and Mrs. just after they said, “We do!”. Post ceremony, guests were invited into a tent on the lawn for an outdoor reception. The groom and his mom choreographed a dance, the groom’s cake honored his love for his job as a fireman, and the pair made their exit on a fire truck.
Today’s plantation soiree is gorgeous with it’s soft gray, pink, and ivory palette, and I’m sending so much gratitude to Casey Hendrickson Photography for sending Amber and Dustin’s day our way!
