Hannah and Charlie’s Wedding at Hemlock Barn in the NC Mountains

February 12, 2023

For so many of our couples, the High Country of North Carolina is a destination. I would say that at least 80% of our clients and their guests come to the mountains from out of town. That’s why it’s so special when we get to plan weddings for our friends and neighbors.

I love a lot of things about local couples but one thing that they all have in common is that the weather doesn’t phase them. They live here so they know it’s wildly unpredictable and can change at any moment.

It was rainy and chilly for most of Hannah and Charlie’s day but it was one of the most warm and joyous celebrations we’ve had all season. I’ve always said that rain makes for a more relaxed wedding day and I really do think that’s true. It takes the pressure off of everything having to be so “perfect” and people tend to let loose a little right off the bat.

Favorite Things

The amazing floral install by Golden Thistle Design. Velvet bridesmaids dresses. Velvet table linens. A bagpiper for the ceremony gets us every time. Charlie is an arborist so each table was named after a different tree. All of the groomsmen grew mustaches for the occasion. That costume change! The sweetest Father/Daughter first look. The getaway car was a beat up pickup that they decorated. The food by REID’S Catering was on point. Just the Hemlock Barn itself. It’s our first time working there and there’s something magical about the space!
