We featured so many lovely real weddings in V3, but few seem as perfect for the first day of spring as Farren + Kevin’s North Carolina nuptials at the Airlie Gardens. The talented Millie Holloman photographed the high school sweethearts, and Salt Harbor Designs styled their Wilmington wedding. Farren, who wowed in a romantic Melissa Sweet gown and matching veil, showed us how to do pink the right way with her maids’ chic frocks (also by Melissa Sweet) and ladylike bouquets, courtesy of the team at Salt Harbor Designs. To participate in the evening’s lawn games (what’s more Southern than cornhole and croquet?), the bride swapped her dramatic cathedral-length veil for a flirty hairpiece from Lo Boheme.
Complimenting your friend on the food at her wedding: This is gooder ‘n grits!
