Real NC Wedding at The Umstead Hotel and Spa

It’s Wedding Feature Wednesday at Southern Bride & Groom! Today, we’re excited to share Alyssa and Keith’s Real NC Wedding at The Umstead Hotel and Spa. The couple’s gorgeous big day was shot by Cara of f8 Photo Studios.

Alyssa and Keith met at work a few years ago and bonded over both being from New York. The more they talked, the more they realized they had in common, and a few short months later, they officially became a couple.

On a Saturday morning in 2012, Keith was on the floor playing with the couple’s kitten, Piper. He said the kitten had brought something for Alyssa, handed her a jewelry box, and asked her to marry him!

They easily selected The Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary for their June 2013 wedding after meeting with the event staff. Alyssa and Keith decided on a color palette of yellow, turquoise and purple.

Alyssa and Keith used Southern Bride & Groom to select their venue (The Umstead) and photographer (f8 Photo Studios), who they said “were two of the best parts of the wedding!” They also used Fresh Affairs – owner Lyn Graves created a gorgeous custom chuppah for their wedding ceremony – f8 in Motion, and Bella Bridesmaids.

Enjoy these beautiful photos from Alyssa and Keith’s wedding day, courtesy of Cara of f8 Photo Studios, and video from f8 in Motion.
