Jessica and Alex: A North Carolina Farm Wedding

Jessica and Alex’s wedding wedding day was filled with love, joy, smiles and lots of laughs!

I first met Jessica and Alex while they were on a visit to the Triangle scoping out wedding venues. They were moving to the area in a few months and had decided that North Carolina would be the perfect place to celebrate their union.

The ceremony took place in Coker Arborteum. Their family friend, and US District Court Judge, Keith Ellison presided over the ceremony. And, like many couples, they chose to have a mixed gender wedding party with their closest friends representing each side. After the ceremony, guests headed over to Rock Quarry Farm where they enjoyed locally grown and catered food provided by Box Carr Farms.  During cocktail hour guests were serenaded with some Southern sounds by Big Fat Gap. One of my favorite details was the cheese cake. To clarify, a cake made out of real cheese!

I hope you enjoy these amazing photos from Riley Maclean Photography and get inspired for your own wedding day!

Sara & Toby- Elegant Rock Quarry Farm Wedding

I’m very excited to share this gorgeous rainy day wedding! Sara and Toby were married at Rock Quarry Farm this past September. While the day started off with non-stop rain, it paused just in time for the first look and wedding party photos in front of the old farm house. Sarah decided to have fun by wearing her Hunter boots under her dress to stay dry (which made some really cute photos). After an intimate tent ceremony, guests moved to the barn where they enjoyed fabulous food from Mitchell’s Catering. While Sarah and Toby wanted a laid back celebration, they also wanted it to feel a bit upscale and sophisticated. With the right linens and rentals from Party Reflections, fabulous chandeliers and lighting from Get Lit Special Event Lighting, and gorgeous flowers from Eclectic Sage, we made that happen!

We hope you enjoy these beautiful images from Michael Moss Photography and get inspired for your own wedding day!

Ellen & Brendan- Country Chic Farm Wedding

Rock Quarry Farm was the perfect location for Ellen and Brendan’s fall nuptials! The couple wanted a beautiful but relaxed wedding. For the men, they chose to skip the formal coats but, dressed up their attire with some awesome leather suspenders! And rather than choose one dress for all the bridesmaids, Ellen allowed the women to pick their own lace dresses in shades of white and ivory.

After a lovely ceremony guests enjoyed fabulous food from Durham Catering which included Deviled eggs with jalapeno, sweet potato biscuits with pimento cheese, mini chicken and waffles, apple braised pork, and even a delicious chile relleno stuffed with shrimp and cheese! So very, very yummy. The highlight of the bar was their specialty Margarita named, “Marvarita, ” after their adorable dog Marvin. Tre Bella Flowers provided beautiful centerpieces which were placed on vintage linens collected by the bride and her  mother. For dessert there were delicious cupcakes but, the big hit was the hand-made Lebanese desserts from Brendan’s family.
