Kelly and Drew’s Emerald Green Summer Umstead Wedding

August 22, 2017

Meet Kelly and Drew, dental school sweethearts who said “I do” this June at the beautiful Umstead Hotel and Spa.  This super sweet couple dreamed of an elegant affair full of candlelight, greenery and delicious bites for their guests – making The Umstead the perfect destination for their wedding celebration.  A palette of emerald green and charcoal grey brought warmth and intimacy to the large, modern Umstead ballroom.  From a custom hanging seating chart to clear menus set on oak leaves to foam fingers featuring the bride and grooms faces, each and every detail was designed to compliment not only the bride’s chic style but the couples’ fun loving personalities too.  We are so thankful to have been part of such a wonderful day for this fabulous couple and their families.  A big thanks to the amazing team of vendors who made this a weekend we will never forget!  We hope you enjoy a few images from the talented Caroline Lima Photography!
