Meet Rachel and John, one of our adorable couples, who said “I do” this May at The Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary, North Carolina! This sweet couples love of brunch may just surpass our own so when they approached us to help bring their vision of day full of love, laughter and quiche to life, we knew it was a match made in heaven!
A bright and cheery yet sophisticated event designed around Rachel’s fabulous bridesmaid dresses from ASOS made for the perfect brunch time affair that was captured beautifully by the talented Carolyn Marie Photography. Colorful, lush garden style blooms paired with subtle touches of black and white stripes transformed The Umstead’s formal ballroom space into a chic gathering. Trays of delicious breakfast breads and pastries were incorporated into the table design and made for a yummy surprise for guests to enjoy at their seats! Guests indulged on bellini’s, bloody mary’s and mimosa’s throughout brunch but made sure to leave room for treats from Monuts Donuts!
With the help of their band, The Whiskey Rebellion, and a contra caller, the Bride and Groom were able to recreate their first date while allowing guests to experience something you don’t see at most weddings. Helping to organize dances by calling out steps, the contra caller, kept the dance floor packed and put big smiles on everyone’s faces! It was so fun to watch!
The afternoon ended with a colorful streamer sendoff where guests waved good wishes to the Bride and Groom! We are so thankful we were able to be a part of such a fun day for a wonderful couple and their families! A big thanks to the amazing team of vendors who made their dream an reality!
