It’s Wedding Feature Wednesday at Southern Bride & Groom! Today we’re excited to share Chris and Stephanie’s classic navy and coral wedding at Ballantyne Country Club in Charlotte, NC, shot by Fusion Photography.
Stephanie met Chris the week before she started medical school, when she was at the bowling alley with her friends. One of her classmates brought her boyfriend, who showed up with his friend, Chris. The two caught each other’s eye, but nothing fell into place until New Year’s Eve, when they happened to be in the same place to celebrate. Since then, they haven’t left each other’s side!
Chris proposed to Stephanie while they were hiking at Grandfather Mountain. She was ahead of him on the trail, and turned around to see him on one knee, holding a box. Of course, she said yes, and afterward, the two celebrated with dinner at one of their favorite restaurants. He surprised her again that evening when all of their friends were gathered to celebrate!
The couple wanted their wedding to be a celebration of their love for one another. They selected Ballantyne Country Club and a classic color palette of navy and coral that complemented the venue’s elegance and charm. The colors were carried throughout in the bridesmaids’ dresses, the floral arrangements, the table décor, and the cake. Chris and Stephanie made their wedding personal in the small details, like naming each of the tables after places they had met friends over the years.
