Christina and Ryan: A North Carolina Farm Wedding

When I sat down with Christina and her incredibly fun mom, Shirley, it was clear they wanted a wedding for Christina and Ryan that their guests would not soon forget!

The family’s farm was the perfect backdrop for this sophisticated and lively summer affair. The evening started off with a lovely ceremony where Christina’s adorable dog, Sebastian, served as ring bearer. After the ceremony the guests sipped  Shirleyritas (Shirley’s very delicious and dangerous margaritas) by the pool. Durham Catering offered passed appetizers of  bacon wrapped scallops, sushi, and the best fried green tomato and pimento cheese sandwiches ever!  For dinner guests moved into the main tent overlooking the rolling fields at sunset. It was simply gorgeous! This is where Christina’s theme of horseshoes and butterflies really played out. From the guest name cards tied to miniature horseshoes to the butterflies hanging in the centerpieces no detail was overlooked. Ryan even got his wish for a little Carolina blue, in homage to their alma mater.

After dinner it was time to kick it up with the amazing band Liquid Pleasure! This crowd danced all night long. They  worked up an appetite just in time for some delicious food provided by the Only Burger food truck. For this wedding there was no big send off. Instead the guests were invited to keep the party going in the pool!

Cheers to Christina and Ryan! You certainly had a wedding that no one will ever forget.
