Happy Fourth of July!

by in Inspirations, Main on

Happy Fourth of July, ladies + gents! We hope you’re celebrating with your families, eating barbecue (whether you like it Memphis style, Western North Carolina style, or Eastern North Carolina style, like me!), diving into some red velvet cake and heading out for fireworks this evening. We’ll see you back here tomorrow with our regular posts!

Did I tell you how much I love the blue in this Virgil Bunao wedding? Emily + Brian dressed up Legare Waring House’s already beautiful lawn with flowing linens, floral patterned table runners and string lights. The cocktail tables interspersed throughout the dinner tables carries over the bold shade of blue we love while the cake, courtesy of The Cake Stand, seamlessly mirrored the wedding decor. I’m so happy to see that the couple included a game of corn hole at their wedding, complete with their monogram — because if that isn’t Southern, I don’t know what is!

See all the photos from Emily + Brian’s wedding in their Real Wedding Gallery!

Describe your wedding cake: It was seamlessly intertwined into our wedding décor and decorated with white, cobalt blue and powder blue. It was delicious chocolate, key lime, and carrot cake.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Our photographer! Virgil Bunao Fine Arts wedding photography captured every special moment and emotion that I will be able to reflect back on for a lifetime.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? The feeling of having all of our friends and family in the same place sharing in our celebration. The amount of love present in one place was incredible.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are extremely excited to start our life together. We look forward to many adventures to come and to taking on the world together.

      Working on getting you a source, Lindsey! We’ll update as soon as we know. But in the meantime, aren’t they amazing?!

      Hi Lindsey! Thank you so much for your patience! I finally have an answer, though it’s probably not the one you want — they were made by the bride and groom! Darn those crafty couples :)

    Thus far, I have had 2 brides this year use cornhole for entertainment for their guests – 1 had a Miami Dolphins set and the other had a combo of UGA & UF colors. HOWEVER, I looooove this personalized monogram! woo! Doesn’t get much more southern than that, I will certainly suggest that to my next couple.

    Id also like to add that those table runners are exquisite! just love em!

Ooo boy do we have a fun wedding for you today — DIY brides, delight! The wedding invitation designer-bride screen printed the couple’s invitations herself and decked Eva Restaurant with colorful bunting and a cheerful banner stretching across the ceremony space. Yeri, the bride, made it easy for guests to wave their well-wishes with little flags and dab their tears of joy with individually packaged handkerchiefs. The festive air didn’t stop at paper, however. Yeri and her bridesmaid both wore short and fun David’s Bridal dresses, while Yeri opted for a simple dress and veil and completed the look with adorable polka-dotted coral pumps from J. Crew. The bride and her sister arranged all the flowers themselves with the help of her in-laws, who bought dozens of assorted flowers from their local farmer’s market. Special thanks to Yvonne Wong Photography who shared this DIY wedding with us!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We met while attending the University of Washington in Seattle. We found out later that we used to attend the same elementary school in Los Angeles!
Describe the proposal. Adam was in cahoots with my sister to pick out the perfect ring. She also made a custom box / ornament for Adam to hang on our tree. I was on my way home from work and was going to pick Adam up to go eat. He kept urging me to come into the apartment. When I went inside, he showed me the ornament and proposed!
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Light-hearted, humorous, and joyful.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: The “Tears of Joy” bundles.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: It was a strapless, short dress. Very simple.
Describe your wedding flowers: My in-laws were kind enough to go to the farmer’s market and buy a large amount of roses and other assorted flowers. My sister and I made our bouquets and the in-laws helped to make the table arrangements.
