Akeem and Dana’s Umstead Hotel and Spa Wedding Celebration

September 5, 2017

An evening full of love, laughter and lots of sparkle made for the most magical early Spring wedding at The Umstead Hotel and Spa.  Lush blooms, crystal chandeliers and mirrored accents created a extravagant yet intimate setting for our sweet couple, Akeem and Dana, to say “I Do”!   From mirrored stationery to a seven foot tall hanging wedding cake, each and every detail dreamed by the bride and groom was meticulously brought to life by the amazing team of vendors who made Akeem and Dana’s day possible.   As if this sweet couples love for one another was not enough, guests enjoyed surprise gown changes, delicious eats, personalized cookies, and lots of confetti throughout the evening, truly making this night one we will always remember!

We hope you enjoy a few images from the amazing Lauren Cowart Photography and a highlight of their wedding film from the wonderful Heartstone Films!
