October kicked off with this great celebration for Jordan and Harrison - With about 250 close friends and family this wedding was terrific fun all day long!
With a wonderful rehearsal dinner the night before...
Anatomy of the wedding day...
It started with preparations for hair and makeup at Alice's home in Morehead City. NC - Where 8 of her favorite people in the bridal party with Harrison's sister 'Hana' and Jordan's bestest friend 'Jacob' [as part of it ] all made sure it ran flawlessly! Harrison had his best 8 guys with him [ Jordan's brothers were part of groomsmen tribe ] super fun! We had the most precious flower girls too!
Everyone finished getting ready at The Dunes...
Inside the main room, a very simple set up with Floral design by Blossom Bay Design who created a flower paradise in the main floor near the chandelier, delightful floral arches on entrance/exits to the deck area, and the floral crowns for flower girls were stunning - for the exit what seemed as zillion of petals for the end of the night.
All decorations were planned in classic minimalistic style, with each table in the main room embellished with hurricane candles and many unique floral arrangements that allowed functional space for dinner service.
During the day... Just imagine as a gospel choir sang along as ceremony starts and every bridal party guest is walking down the aisle.
Smiles and happy tears started to flow. In addition to gospel singers, a band accompanied the singers. During the ceremony two heartfelt readings by the bride's cousin and groom's uncle' Steve ' - were incorporated as spiritual traditions blended by of both faiths into the nuptials.
Yes! A glass was broken, the expression of congratulations and best wishes ' Mazel Tov '
All the great vibes and loving energy for the day. Prior to the I Dos, the first looks with bride's bridesmaids, dad and soon-to-be husband - as everyone cheered from afar. This was so much fun!
It is worth mentioning that Jordan, my bride is an UNC alumni and Carolina Blues were part of the color palette, bridesmaids wore beautiful champagne silk dresses.
All groomsmen wore tuxedos, Harrison, the groom - wore a tailored made INDOCHINO - [ The Hannah Navy Dinner Jacket ] it had his name on it along the left liner pocket - Everyone wore bowties...
Buffet style dinner was served - with lots of veggies and outdoor drinks... Featured drinks were served at the main bar, starting by her favorite "The Jet" [ Tequila, cherry juice, splash of sour club soda and cherry lime garnish.] and Harrison's "The Hammered Harri" [ Bourbon, Apple Whiskey, Bitter and Orange peel ] also, other high end spirits, beer and wine were served.
Earlier, Jordan gave Harrison a beautiful pair of velvet slip-on shoes in black to wear with his suit. Jordan wore a lovely gown from Coastal Knot in Raleigh - complimented by a cathedral veil, later on she switched to a optional dress and her favorite sneakers for the dancing portion of reception!
The dads... Mr. Doug T. and Eric C. played 3 songs with the band [ they are music enthusiast and actually groom's dad has a band he plays in! ] How cool is this???
The day was great and fun, and after the petal exit our couple left in a vintage Rolls Royce [Diamond Limo Service ] - Monday off to their Honeymoon!
