I love seeing local weddings! If you’re from Chapel Hill, this will make you happy like it did for me. Samantha + Graham exchanged vows at the groom’s parents house, where Purple Puddle filled the yard with magnolias, lilies and orchids. The giant wreath of magnolia leaves and flowers hanging from the gate, E. E. Cummings poem written on a window pane, and the custom watercolor painting on S + G’s invitations are all details that I love. They match beautifully with the bride’s Pronovias gown and her ‘maids’ blush pink Ann Taylor frocks. Samantha + Graham celebrated their nuptials at 411 West, where fluffy pink poms hung from the ceiling and white flowers in blue glass mason jars decorated clean and simple tables. Fun Fact: Those adorable drink skewers spearing a bright orange slice and a maraschino cherry were from Pearl and Pearl, Emily’s Etsy shop! I’m a little bit in love with Meredith Perdue’s photos of the happy couple dancing. After the wedding, S + G honeymooned in France. How dreamy!
A compliment for someone’s husband: You sure didn’t pick up no crooked stick.
