Real Wedding – Jillian & Eric at the Barn of Chapel Hill
“Life is the flower of which love is the honey…” Jillian and Eric’s spring wedding was bursting with light and color from an abundance of fresh blooms. The Barn of Chapel Hill is beautiful and rustic in itself, but being covered in luscious flowers and greenery gave the venue unmatched beauty!
Jillian exuded romantic elegance as she sauntered down the aisle in an off-the-shoulder lace gown with her long veil following behind her. The vibrant pops of pink and peach roses from Jillian’s bouquet drew everyone’s eyes towards her. Her bridesmaids complemented her nicely in deep navy blue gowns, while Eric and his groomsmen looked handsome in light gray suits featuring navy ties and peach boutonnieres.
The couple said their “I do’s” outside, surrounded by the Barn of Chapel Hill’s luscious green landscape and underneath a beautifully put together altar made up of billowing blush linens and an abundance of light colored blooms interspersed with greenery.
After the ceremony, guests escaped the heat inside the gorgeous barn. Tables were dressed in white linens and topped with floral arrangements similar to Jillian’s bouquet accompanied by rose gold votives. An arrangement of fresh greenery was intertwined with the elegant light fixture overhead, drawing attention to the barn’s lofty ceilings. Jillian and Eric put a unique twist on a traditional wedding favor, sending their guests home with small jars of honey with a note reading “meant to bee.”
Jillian and Eric shared intimate dances with their parents before cutting into their cake. The three tiered buttercream cake stayed true to the theme by featuring fresh pink and peach blooms on each tier.
As the day’s events came to a close, Jillian and Eric’s loved ones gathered around for one last celebration: the send off! Sparklers in hand, the guests made an archway for the newlyweds to walk under as they departed from the barn, creating the perfect moment for the couple to share a picture perfect kiss!
