Erin McLean Events and team were able to pull off some magic and orchestrate this gorgeous Chapel Hill wedding in only eight weeks! The attention to detail, intricate design and A team list of vendors created the ultimate outdoor garden wedding (inside!) that Celia had always dreamed of.
“Celia had her heart set on an outdoor wedding, but planning for an August wedding day made that dream seem a little out of reach. Not only that, but because of Adrian’s residency program, we needed to plan this wedding in a little less than 8 weeks! Never fear, why don’t we create an enchanted garden party in the iconic Hill Ballroom at Carolina Inn? Celia and Adrian were sold, so after being married in the newly reopened Duke Chapel in all its restored glory, they would dance the night away among flowing florals, glowing tablescapes, and the incomparable sounds of The Sleeping Booty Band.” – Erin McLean Events
One of our favorite elements of the day, is the incorporation of the boxwood, lavish greenery and gorgeous pale blooms from Lily Greenthumbs. What better way to create a garden-like experience inside? We also can’t get enough of their crisp and clean invitation suite. The piped white invitation suite and the wax sealed escort cards were the perfect detail to help create a cohesive elegant look.
