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!
