The groom and his men looked dapper in gray suits with navy blue ties of various patterns. “We were hoping to have a classic wedding with a focus on the people who have loved and supported us throughout the years: our family and friends,” Sarah said. The pair exchanged vows in a traditional ceremony in front of 200 guests. “We were of the mindset, the more the merrier!” Sarah explained of the guest count. A reception followed at a reception venue close by. Guests were greeted by a chalkboard sign, and a re-purposed suitcase to place their cards. In lieu of a traditional guestbook, a framed map of the United States was used in its place so friends and family members could sign over their hometowns. Escort cards were displayed on dark wooden window shutters. Tables were covered in white linens featuring lace and burlap table runners and floral centerpieces. “We wanted everyone to laugh, love, eat, drink, and dance,” Sarah said of the reception. Following dinner, guests took over the dance floor and indulged in three different flavors of cake, strawberry buttercream, red velvet, and carrot! Sarah said a wedding is all about the people, not the details. “I think it’s really important to have the people who you love and are important to you present,” Sarah said. See the full board here.

Courtney + Brendon: A DIY Downton Abbey-Inspired Fall North Carolina Barn Wedding By Vesic Photography

Courtney and Brendon were married at The Pavilions at the Angus Barn in Raleigh, N.C. on September 7. “I grew up riding horses so it was no surprise when I found myself drawn to the idea of a barn wedding,” Courtney said. “However, I really wanted to soften the aesthetic and distance myself from the more common ‘rustic’ wedding look.” The bride wore a lace off-the-shoulder a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a floor-length veil, while the groom wore a gray tweet suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short dresses with various necklines and carried bouquets of hydrangeas and baby’s breath. “My bouquet had a hidden secret thanks to my florist Marsha,” she said. “My dog Pubby had passed away a few months before the wedding unexpectedly. I quite sad about not having him around for my big day. She tucked his collar inside the stems of my bouquet and accented the wrap with the Helen Ficalora charms I wear to remember him.” The outdoor ceremony, overlooking the pond, took place at sunset per the request of Courtney’s father. “He wanted to walk me down the aisle right when the sun set,” Courtney said. “He even looked it up down to the minute, which I thought was really sweet.” After the vows were sealed with a kiss, it was time for dinner and dancing underneath the pavilion. Tables were decorated with vintage vases and vessels centerpieces, pillar candles atop candelabras, and wood slices. “There is this one scene from Downton Abbey that I have always loved – they were outdoors having a garden party in late spring/early summer,” she said. “That visual reimagined as more of an early fall soiree allowed my quirky and slightly more whimsical personal style to complement the venue perfectly.” In addition to a three-tiered cake, late-night snacks also served double-duty as favors, including push-pops, peanuts, sliders, and Coca Cola. Yum! See the full board here.
