Whitney and Corey’s wedding day was unlike any wedding day that I had ever experienced in all of the best ways. Whitney always envisioned an outdoor wedding ceremony and dinner, so her guests could experience the beauty of the North Carolina mountains that the two of them love so much. As we got closer and closer to their wedding day, the weather forecast was showing pockets of rain throughout the day, and we had to make the call to move everything inside. However, this incredible team of vendors was not going to let Whitney’s dream completely vanish, so we worked together, all while watching the weather to make Whitney’s dream come to life, and we were able to photograph and style everything the way that Whitney had dreamed.
As you will see in the images below, Whitney’s classic, elegant taste paired beautifully with stunning North Carolina mountains. I love the way that she took an elegant, strapless Vera Wang gown and added a custom tulle veil to wrap around her arms. Their wedding design was inspired by her love of gardening, and with the help of Kelly Perry with Philosophy Flowers”>Philosophy Flowers, they brought her vision to life. Kelly even surprised Whitney with meaningful details throughout her day, like adding unripened blueberries to her bouquet and some of the table arrangements! While the details of their wedding were unique and beautiful, the love and joy that surrounded Whitney and Corey on this day was the sweetest detail.
