From Casual to Formal, a Barbecue Wedding of Your Dreams
One of the biggest trends in weddings is incorporating an unexpected, yet personal element into your event. For many residents of North Carolina, that personal element is good ol’ barbecue. Many brides balk at the first thought of a barbecue wedding. But few foods are as heartwarming, revered and socially engaging as highly flavorful, stick-to-the-ribs cuisine cooked over an open flame or in a smoker. Besides being a throwback to many of your life’s best days, this food can really dress up for a formal affair.

Just imagine your guests enjoying every flavorful bite, while gathered around tables and engaged in friendly conversation.
