We are ecstatic to be sharing the wedding of this wonderful couple! Mandy and Will knew exactly what they were looking for when selecting a venue for their special day. Their vision of a location that was both rustic, and romantic, while also being inviting and relaxed was brought to life by the Chapel Hill Carriage House. The design was understated and simple emphasized through color palette of soft pinks, with pops of greenery and white and the decor, to allow for the natural beauty of the property to shine.  

Mandy and Will’s ceremony took place in the magical open air virtual church at the Chapel Hill Carriage House. The bride made her entrance around a pod that sits to the side of the church and down the aisle to classical music performed by the string trip from UNC-Chapel Hill. Mandy and Will stood in front of Eucalyptus covered the arch with pops of blush and ivory blooms by the creative Flower Patch Florals. Mandy’s uncle officiated the ceremony which was one of the many personal touches that they wanted to incorporate into their special day. As the ceremony concluded and guests transitioned to cocktail hour where they were greeted with signature cocktails inspired by the couple. Guests selected from “The Mandy” or “The Will”. The couples family and friends took in the tranquil garden surroundings, played games, relaxed on lounges placed throughout, and listened to some of the Mandy and Will’s favorite Disney songs!

The evening continued with a reception in the barn. As guests entered the space, they were welcomed by a moss covered M & W created by the couple. More personal touches were seen throughout the evening as the guest book and all signage was created by family members. Guests dined with a delicious meal by Beau Catering followed by an evening of dancing under the twinkle lights that are woven through the rafters in the barn. Some guests took a break from the party to lounge by a warm fire outside as the cool evening air arrived, while others enjoyed the photobooth courtesy of ZimZoom Photo Booth. One of the most memorable moments of the evening for Mandy and Will was an impromptu photoshoot with the Alpaca and Llama that live on the property! The unforgettable night ended with a sparkler exit to see the bride and groom off.

Congratulations Mandy and Will! Xo.
