Real Wedding: Alexis + Andrew at Rose Hill
On a stunning September day, Alexis and Andrew said their “I do’s” while surrounded by family and friends at the Rose Hill Plantation in Nashville, NC.
Alexis’s fairytale day began inside the historic home’s bridal suite. She was able to enjoy a beautiful view of the grounds while having her hair and makeup done. With the help of her mom, Alexis stepped into a beautiful satin ball gown with a lace, off-the-shoulder top and a gorgeous pair of embellished heels.
The timeless Southern architecture exudes a romantic, classic feel. Both the ceremony and reception were decorated with soft, neutral undertones with hints of gold throughout. Natural greenery was added to complement the soft blooms. Alexis and Andrew’s intimate ceremony couldn’t have been framed in a more beautiful setting.
Guests walked over to the plantation’s elegant ballroom for the reception. One long table was dressed in gold linens and topped with a mix of lush greenery and soft blooms, while smaller round tables featured floral centerpieces with neutral undertones accompanied by gold votives.
The floral theme was further exemplified by the cake, a three-tiered creation with a ruffled buttercream design and gold trim on alternating tiers. Various pink and blush roses were placed on each layer like a cascade, leading to a small bunch of blooms and greenery on either side of the bottom layer. An illustration of the cake and floating tealights complemented the display. White drapery decorated the rafters, and intricate displays of blooms and greenery similar to the bride’s bouquet accented the light of the chandeliers they hung from. The look was a mix of classic and modern aesthetics that blended together perfectly.
When the evening came to a close, Andrew and Alexis made their way outside to a vintage 1940s LaSalle, where they embraced before their departure as newlyweds. Their wedding was just the start of the next chapter in their long love story.
