Rachel and David’s Outdoor Garden Wedding at The Sutherland!

May 5, 2017

Rachel and Dave were married this past April in a beautiful garden ceremony at The Sutherland in Wake Forest.  With both being in the hospitality industry, these two knew they wanted to throw a fabulous party for their friends and family with tasty food, great music, and a relaxed ambience.  We had the most fun planning this gorgeous day…. from the long farm style tables to the geometric gold candle holders to the luscious greenery draped across the tables and don’t get us started on the simply elegant white cake with gold foil accents by Ashley Cakes…. this wedding was the definition of timeless and understated elegance!

Rachel and Dave (native Californians) really wanted a completely outdoor wedding so we planned their ceremony in front of the log cabin with dinner and dancing taking place under the stars!  Take a look below for images and video from the super talented Mikkel Paige and Thomas Blake Films!
