Real Wedding: Lydia + John at Duke Gardens + The Parlour at Manns Chapel

Lydia and John's April wedding day was so stunning. Their wedding day was so inspired by art and music - and you could see remnants of Monet and classical music throughout the day. I was so excited when Lydia said she'd love to have a Monet-inspired design throughout her wedding design.

Their ceremony was held in the Rollins Overlook at Duke Gardens and the gardens were in full bloom and just absolutely magical on this April day that ushered in the Spring. Guests made their way to the reception later, which was held at the quaint Parlour at Manns Chapel. Guests enjoyed their cocktail hour outside and then moved inside for a delicious dinner by Beau Catering and dancing with a live band. Lydia started the reception off with a song for her groom - she's so talented!

We love the incredible table scapes by Bowerbird Flowers - who captured the watercolor and garden features. Sugar Euphoria created an incredible watercolor painted cake - which was displayed in the Parlour's cake cage and was stunning!

Best wishes to you Lydia and John - may your marriage be long and rich!

With love, Becca

Thanks to all our awesome vendors!
