Lauren and Zach held their wedding at Rose Hill Plantation in Nashville, NC. An Eastern North Carolina wedding venue that is one of our favorites!As the flowers were set, the ceremony chairs put into perfect rows and the food prepared, the girls were getting hair and makeup done and the boys did wedding day boy things (who really knows what they do?). While we were running around shooting all of the details, I stopped at Lauren and Zach’s memory table. Right in the middle there was a tray full of plastic toy army men. It was accompanied by a sign that read “Please take a soldier home and place it somewhere that will remind you to pray for the men an women serving our country. Keeping us free. Make God be with each of you. God Bless America!” As simple as it was, this was one of my favorite details from the entire wedding. Zach serves in the Army and this was a great way for the wedding guests to continue keep him and all of the military in their thoughts and prayers!
There are limitless options for where to hold a ceremony on the property at Rose Hill Plantation, and I have been dying for one of our brides to do exactly what Lauren and Zach decided on. It was such an elegant moment when Lauren walked out of the double doors on the front of the house with her dad and Zach got to see her for the first time as she exited the house and came down the staircase. The entire ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt.
Following the ceremony, while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour, we took Lauren and Zach on a nature walk around the pond. Lauren was a trooper in her heels and dress because she knew it would be worth it 🙂 We were visited by the resident swans and they even joined in on some photos! Once they entered the reception it was time to get all of the formalities complete and start the party! We always know when there’s a lot of “northern” guests (almost all of the guests came from Pennsylvania!), the party will be good and it sure was! The dance floor was full all night long!
Congratulations Lauren and Zach we are so excited for you!
