You don’t need to have a big wedding to visit big together with your florals! Elizabeth & Duston’s gorgeous & intimate Southern wedding has which may us that the smallest of guestlists can garner serious statement decor.
Celebrating at Legare-Waring House, an attractive historic home boasting old oak trees dripping with iconic Spanish moss, the pair married while watching most magnificent double circle arch. With a seemingly mile-long aisle with the oak grove glittering with white petals and bundles of florals abound this might be probably the most lavish & beautiful intimate wedding we’ve seen.
Of course, such floral feats wouldn’t be right with no gown that awed us much more. Elizabeth’s Amalia Carrara gown still somehow steals the show having a dramatic train and uniquely embellished off-the-shoulder sleeves.
Photographed by Lydia Ruth & planned by Pure Luxe Bride, we’re hoping this wedding inspires any bride & groom to produce exactly the wedding scene they imagine, regardless of how big or small.
Our Love Story
We met in a boarding school for academically gifted students within our junior year of senior high school. Right away, i was drawn to one another’s intelligence and drive for academic success. The challenges we faced during those rigorous 2 yrs of education laid the building blocks of support for every other that we’ve continued to construct on within the last decade.
We got engaged in the arboretum of UNC Chapel Hill’s campus on an attractive spring day. We were both excited and perhaps a little nervous too. After Dustin proposed, we spent all of those other afternoon taking engagement pictures before going to a private dinner.
The day flew just by like everyone said hello would. Our favorite part was spending a few minutes alone together before the ceremony. We didn’t possess a first look but i was able to hold on the job either side of the door. It meant a lot to be in a position to talk to each other before walking on the aisle also it really calmed our nerves.
Advice to Other Couples
Our advice with other couples planning their weddings would be to savor every moment. We were both very active in the process from start to finish. It’s very easy to become so laser-focused around the big day that you simply forget to prevent and smell the metaphorical roses. We were excited for the wedding day to reach, so when it finally did, everything went perfectly. But you want that we’d carved out a while that day to simply stop and soak everything in rather than going, going, going.
