Brittany and Andrew were married in an enchanting outdoor Jewish wedding ceremony in Lake Lure, North Carolina. From the gown to the décor, their entire day was personalized with pretty vintage undertones. Photography by Whitmeyer Photography.
This venue felt more like the picturesque home of a friend than a reception hall, giving the evening even more warmth and coziness.The lake, mountains and greenery provided a stunning backdrop for the couple’s wedding photos.
The gown’s open back was perfect for an elegant affair like this one, while the lace sleeves appropriately played off the day’s charming, antique details.
Brittany’s bridesmaids left an adorable message on her shoe, giving her memories (and fashion) to last a lifetime. After all, what better way to warm a girl’s heart than through her shoes?
Brittany’s flowers were a soft white ivory, but pale pink and mauve tones blended with green stems to maintain the vintage garden motif seen throughout the rest of the decor.
Jewish Wedding Ceremony – Chuppah
The white chuppah was draped in greenery and flowers that reflected the day’s outdoor setting with rustic romance.
Brittany’s parents beamed as much as the bride when they walked her through the grassy, fresh-aired ceremony.
Taking photographs at staple local spots, like Brittany and Andrew on this trolley, are charming accolades to any couple’s wedding day.
This vintage chest dripping in pearls was rustically enchanting…not to mention an exceptionally unique escort card holder!
In lieu of a more traditional guestbook, Brittany and Andrew requested guests share their “key to a happy marriage” on antique keys.
This outdoor dance floor looked more like a piazza in springtime than a traditional reception hall.
Salmon and ivory flowers made for understated, elegant centerpieces – the perfect compliment to the reception’s greenery.
Themed cocktails are a growing trend at weddings, with clever names relating to the couple’s personality or relationship. Here, Pais is the newlywed’s last name.
Who says adult parties can’t have favors too? These sparklers lit up the night sky and were fun for every guest!
For a less flammable favor, guests took home these DIY to-go jars of homemade jelly. “Love is Sweet” and “Spread the Love” were perfect slogans for the sweet treats.
Their buttercream-frosted cake was covered with softly colored flowers and pearl-like frosting dollops.
Though not always easy to capture, a group photo is an irreplaceable memory the couple will always treasure.
The entire wedding day was filled with unique, precious wedding details and we are so happy to have been a part of it. Mazel Tov to Brittany and Andrew! We wish you nothing but happiness.
