Real Wedding: Betsey + Chris | The Farm at Old Edwards | Highlands, NC

Nestled in the picturesque town of Highlands, NC, the Old Edwards Inn is a European-style resort that provides luxe accommodations amid the charm of the small mountain town. The inn boasts a casually elegant vibe and has seven distinct spaces available for weddings from large to small.

Betsey and Chris chose The Farm at Old Edwards as the location for their ceremony and reception. The aesthetic was refined, natural and uber chic thanks to Betsey’s keen taste and the help of Melissa Porter with Asheville Event Co. When it came time to party, the darling duo enlisted Atlanta Rhythm & Groove band to lead the celebration.

Prepare to swoon from the images captured by  6 of Four Photography. Thank you for sharing your incredible craft!

Real Wedding: Megan + Andrew | Country Club of Birmingham | Birmingham, AL

Megan and Andrew’s wedding reception at the Country Club of Birmingham was classic, elegant and full of inspiration. Flawlessly designed by the team at Mariee Ami, the ballroom of the country club featured dramatic uplighting and tables laden with white and blush florals accented with gold.

When the time came to party, this crowd let loose! Big Blast and the Party Masters had guests from young to old kicking up their heels to dance to favorites.

Many thanks to the fabulous Heather Durham from Heather Durham Photography for sharing her incredible images from Megan and Andrew’s big day.

Real Wedding (Special Edition): Virginia + Cam | Rye Patch | Aiken, SC

With college football season kicking off in earnest tonight, today’s post is an ECE Real Wedding: Special Edition.  Fresh off of a National Championship win, Clemson fans, Virginia and Cam, were “all in” for their March wedding. Included in the celebration were not only their nearest and dearest, but one very special guest – the Clemson Tiger himself!

Virginia and Cam chose the New South Players as their wedding band. The band’s high-energy and monster song list made them a perfect choice for this party crowd who turned it up on the dance floor.

Loads of love to photographer, Jessica Roberts Photography, for sharing her photos from this fun wedding.
