Instant connection was the name of the game when I met Danielle & Rich. Our Yankee roots instantly intertwined as I quickly found out about their class A Carolina Inn wedding in Chapel Hill. The stage was set for their late October evening wedding.
Danielle opted for rich reds and golds to carry out a romantic theme for her wedding. Her stunning and eye-popping bouquet chock full of red roses accented with stephanotis were done by none other than The English Garden of Raleigh. Sam Dockery and staff of Bliss by Sam were on site that day to help with day of coordination to ensure that the day flowed smoothly.
Their lively reception got underway in the Old Well room of the Carolina Inn. Danielle’s Greek heritage and Rich’s Italian heritage helped to play a big influence on the reception vibe. They danced the traditional Thracian dance led by Danielle’s aunt. Lacey and I had to be quick to get center floor as to not get tangled and entwined in the lively line of dancers! Later that evening they had a traditional cake cutting. Their three tiered red velvet cake by Tier Bella was enjoyed by all guests except for Danielle. My vegan bride had a special chocolate raspberry cake made especially for her.
I can feel comfortable saying, albeit being in the South, that ‘You Guys’ are off to a beautiful life together! Best wishes!
