It was a day for smiles. Lots and lots of smiles and good wishes. Elizabeth couldn’t keep from grinning as she donned her wedding dress (Carolina Traditions, Spartanburg, SC) just hours before she said “I do” to Adam. She and the bridesmaids were such a joyous bunch. The bridesmaids wore full length green gowns from Magnolia Bridal in Greenville, SC.
Even a pre-wedding love letter from Adam – that misted up her eyes – just added to the bliss of the day. The couple couldn’t have asked for a prettier setting for a wedding … Chattooga Belle Farm in Long Creek, SC. It’s part orchard, part winery and all rustic gorgeousness. The back of the barn opens with large sliding doors onto a covered patio that frames the 270 degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. All you see for miles is rolling hills spotted with grapes vines. Adam and the groomsmen relaxed on porch swings before lining up for the ceremony.
Adam and Elizabeth said their vows as friends and family watched. The reception, also at Chattooga Belle, boasted tablescapes that included lighted mason jars and photos of the couple throughout the years – a very personal touch. Guests were treated to gifts from Chattooga Belle’s farm store – bottles of local honey, jams, apple butter and more. Berley Stabler, of Pros Only DJ, keep the party going with dancing and the couple cut not one but two different cake, including a decadent looking Reese’s Cup chocolate groom’s cake.
As the sun set, we were able to get some breathtaking photos of the couple. And as the evening ended, the couple dashed past guest holding sparklers.
