It’s Wedding Feature Wednesday at Southern Bride & Groom! Today, we’re excited to share David and Dorothy’s beautiful rustic chic wedding in Pinehurst, NC, shot by Brian Mullins Photography.
David and Dorothy met while in school at East Carolina and quickly formed a friendship. After graduation, Dorothy moved to New York City, and David and his best friend decided to visit. That weekend, the couple began dating long distance, but the two were soon reunited when Dorothy moved back to NC for graduate school.
After a day of activities and a romantic dinner in Raleigh, the couple was walking around the capitol, and David got down on one knee and asked Dorothy to marry him. Of course, she said yes!
David and Dorothy selected The Fair Barn in Pinehurst and a soft color palette of wisteria, dusty rose, and cloud. The couple put a lot of work into making their wedding day vision a reality – along with the bridal party, they handmade the rustic benches used in their romantic garden ceremony, and completed the look with a floral-draped arbor and hanging birdcages. For the reception, they accented the soaring beams of venue with long, family-style tables decorated with mismatched china and antique details. With centerpieces of wheat sheaths and lavender, the bride’s “rustic chic” vision came to life.
Dorothy says she was inspired by the gorgeous images and real weddings in SB&G, and selected Brian Mullins Photography because she fell in love with his artful eye. The couple also used Southern Harvest Catering for delicious food at their reception. Congrats, David and Dorothy – we love the amount of detail you put into your beautiful wedding day!
