Nicole + Ben were married in front of the dreamy fireplace at Wrightsville Manor on October 29, 2016. Nicole spent the morning getting pampered with her girls by Seagrass Salon + Amy Kennison in the bridal suite at Wrightsville Manor. Their day was simple, elegant, and very romantic.
When guests arrived, the mantle was adorned with greenery, twinkle lights, and a gold framed mirror! There were lanterns and small floral arrangements placed down the aisle on every other row. We later used the aisle decorations as reception table centerpieces. This is a great way to keep decor cost down! Nicole's bridesmaids wore mixed match dresses in shades of magenta and dusty rose. After the ceremony, guests went outside for cocktail hour. There were four 3-foot rounds for guest seating and 4 cocktail tables for guests to lay their drinks and apps on. Wrightsville Manor's lounge was placed around the lawn for guests to relax. They had small stationed appetizers from David's Deli.
Once the photographer was finished with the bridal portraits and we completed the room flip, guests were invited back inside for the reception. Everyone was blown away when they came inside, like it was a brand new room. We used a mix of round and rectangular tables. They were set with tan linens, brown chargers, white scalloped plates and ivory napkins with a gold leaf ring. The centerpieces were hydrangea and baby's breath in mason jars next to black lanterns. Nicole's gorgeous bridal portrait was on an easel next to the bar.
Once guests found their tables, Nicole + Ben were introduced as husband and wife! They went into their first dance. After the first dance, David's Deli opened the buffet! Once everyone finished eating, the Maid of Honor, Best Man, and Mother of the Bride gave toasts. Guests shared their laughs and tears before hitting the dance floor for the rest of the night!

Favorite Wedding Moment:
Watching Nicole walk down the aisle with her dad and grandfather. This always warms my heart seeing two special men walk down one very special lady on the biggest day of her life!
