When peaches are plentiful, the skies are endlessly blue, and the days are long and extra warm, downtown Wilmington is an exquisite place for a wedding celebration.
This styled shoot was planned and designed by SB&G vendors to recreate a warm, soft wedding design, showcases several of our preferred vendors from Wilmington, NC – a fantastic and affordable wedding destination town. So, go ahead, start dreaming of a romantic wedding in this charming riverfront town.
The Cottage is an ideal “getting ready” space for bridal parties – comfy and bright for dress, hair and makeup prep by Makeup for Your Day of Wilmington before any downtown or nearby wedding. Its location is adjacent to Bakery 105, and just steps away from 128 South. The Cottage can be booked in conjunction with events at these two sister properties, or by anyone looking for an intimate daytime location before their wedding or for small bridal or baby showers.
For the ceremony and reception, the color palette was inspired by the brick walls of Bakery 105. This impressive venue was built in the late 1930s and restored in 2009. Shades of sun-kissed peaches and cream, gold metallic and sheer fabrics were used for the elaborate ceremony set up and room décor.
Sophisticated cocktail styled maids’ dresses by Lula Kate from Coastal Knot in preppy bright colors pair perfectly with the fun metallic and printed fans embellishing the bar.
The eclectic mix of elegance and rustic chic flair throughout Bakery 105 in this photo inspiration, incorporated textured linens, wood seating and wood shelves with arrangements in flower boxes, designed together by Fiore Fine Flowers and photographer Bronwyn Duffield. Calligraphy by Southern Bee Designs was used on the mirrored quotation, table numbers and chair signs.
