Real Wedding: Laura + Matt at Rock Quarry Farm

Laura and Matt got married over at Rock Quarry Farm in Chapel Hill last June. This wedding was one of the most adorable weddings I was blessed to be a part of. They were UNC alums who were moving to Tennessee for Laura to go to grad school 2 weeks before the wedding (insert mind blown emoji).

Their wedding day was a beautiful summer day in the country in NC. It was warm, but not like you could fry an egg on a sidewalk. Their colors were rich and bright tones that complimented the bridal party attire. Because Laura and Matt had just moved to Tennessee you could tell that they wanted this beautiful, and fun gathering of their friends and family. The venue on the day was so full of love and excitement for this couple and the journey they were starting.

Laura and her mom were the mother/daughter relationship you want with your own mom. They had all of the same ideas and really respected each other's opinions as well as were very accepting to hear my advice. It was a joyful and relaxing wedding to help plan. They loved Rock Quarry Farm and really wanted to showcase all of it. The ceremony in the field, cocktail hour by the house, pictures on the front lawn, and dinner followed by dancing in the barn. The barn had its "windows" and massive rolling doors open all day which made for a nice breeze and fit their 140 guests.

I was so happy when I met with her and her mom and they decided to book me as their event manager. I checked in with them on all of the planning processes and even helped them with their rental meeting. Some of my most favorite and memorable parts of their wedding were the prayer circle the bride had with her bridesmaids before the ceremony. They met in the house and all placed hands on the bride. It was one of the sweetest moments I have been a part of because you could tell everyone in that room really wanted nothing but the best for Laura and Matt. They honestly were one of the kindest couples I have had the pleasure of working with and the same can be said for their friends and families.
