Kate & Jeff- Whimsical Summer Wedding at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens

I was so honored to be a part of Kate and Jeff’s colorful summer wedding at the NC Botanical Gardens in Chapel Hill.

Kate and Jeff were blessed with a gorgeous summer day. It started off with the girls having mani-pedis at Mina’s Studio. Then everyone gathered at the gardens for an afternoon of photos followed by a sweet and intimate ceremony. During the cocktail hour guests were entertained with bluegrass music from The Happy Valley Pals and enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres from The Catering Company of Chapel Hill. There were so many fun details incorporated throughout the evening! There were bicycles (they met at a bike shop), pinwheel escort cards, a DIY photo booth, and ribbon wands for a fun and colorful send off.

Enjoy these images from Rebecca Ames Photography and get inspired!
