Real Wedding at Adaumont Farm {Meagan + Walt}| Wilmington, North Carolina Event Planner

One of the best parts of my job are the relationships created.  I *love* this family and I am so glad to now call them friends!  Meagan and Walt were such a joy to be around and I had so much fun pulling the final details together with Meagan and her awesome mom, Tammi.  I am so excited to share this beautiful (despite the rain!!) with yall.  Thanks to the McCardell’s for the fabulous photos!

I just loved Meagan’s dress! It was unique and different with the striped pleating, but still had a classic elegance about it.  She made the trip to NYC to Kleinfield’s to get it.  So fun!

One of my favorite things about Adaumont is the entrance to the ceremony. I always encourage my brides to have some form of transportation to get them there so 1) they avoid a reallllyyyyy longggg walk and 2) for some wow factor.  No one expects it!  Meagan and her dad entered into ceremony in his old blue pick up.

It had been rainy all day but the clouds parted just long enough for everyone to be seated and enjoy the ceremony.  And then a few moments before the big kiss, the rain drops started to fall.  We were prepared with umbrellas for all (of course!) because these two wanted an outdoor ceremony and we were going to make it happen!!

Some may say that mason jars have been done to death.  My feelings are if you love them, have them!  We mixed masons and jelly jars with fresh flowers from the farmer’s market for cocktail hour.  It was the perfect understated addition to these vintage handkerchiefs!  See the rest of Sidney and Shawn’s big day here.

I saw these fabulous striped shoes above on Pinterest this week and immediately started dreaming of summer.  Wouldn’t a sweet, summer, nautical styled wedding be fabulous?  Just the perfect amount of navy, white, stripes, and pops of red would have you wanting to hop on a boat and sail into the sunset.
