In honor of Wedding Wednesday, we’ve got a stunning Real North Carolina Wedding feature for y’all today! Enjoy Kristen & Bradley’s sweet ceremony and beautiful reception photographs from their October 2012 wedding.
Kristen and Bradley got engaged last February in the picturesque Aspen, Colorado. He popped the question on a mountain top after snowboarding with the ring in his pocket the entire day!
Kristen is no stranger to the wedding world, as she’s the social catering manager at The Carolina Inn, so she immediately got to work planning their big day. “Southern Bride & Groom was the first magazine I received when I got engaged,” the bride said. “Much inspiration was taken from the ideas in SB&G!”
The couple chose Tryon Palace for its beautiful architecture, and its location — only steps away from the couple’s property in New Bern. The theme of the wedding was Southern Elegance, and with a classic color pattern, crystal chandeliers and Chivari chairs…the couple had elegant covered! They incorporated Southern touches like shrimp and grits and Pepsi favors to complete the feel.
Now, enjoy these beautiful photos from Portraits by Angelo, y’all! ! Congratulations Kristen and Bradley, your wedding was stunning!
