We were so lucky to be able to be a part of this gorgeous event!  Kari and Cole were just the most amazing couple- so easy going, so elegant and sweet- just beautiful!

They picked a breath-taking location for their wedding, the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, North Carolina.  This garden is beyond amazing- I just fell in love with it!  The couple put lots of details in their wedding that just made it ‘them’.  The ceremony was to take place in the ‘White Garden’ , cocktail hour at the Orchid Conservatory and reception under the tent out from the Great Hall.  Sadly we did have rain just before the ceremony was to begin so we made the decision to move the ceremony in the Great Hall- I think it turned out just BEAUTIFUL!!!!

The groom had only one specific request…a soft serve ice cream station- it was perfect with sprinkles and all.  The candy bar was also a huge hit.

Photography was by the amazingly talented Kellie Kano!!

The lovey printed items were created by Graphically Inclinded Designed – the couples custom made invitations, programs and accents all had the same pattern throughout – and what was spectacular is how they carried it to their wedding cake.

Catering by Side Porch.

Programs were hung on each chair.
