Daniel and Jennifer’s fall wedding was nothing short of an elegant fairytale. From the abundance of romantic, deep-colored flowers and the warm glow of candlelight, to the love emanating from friends and family, the Pelliccia’s wedding day was a truly unforgettable experience!

Jennifer began her day inside the beautiful Umstead. With the help of her mom, after hair and makeup were finished, she stepped into her gown – a gorgeous cap-sleeved ballgown with lace detail and intricate covered buttons cascading down her back. Jennifer carried a stunning bouquet made up of white, red, and deep purple blooms interspersed with greenery. The colors in her bouquet were made even more vibrant against the bridesmaids’ rich burgundy gowns. Daniel looked handsome in a sleek blue suit with a white bloom boutonniere.

The outdoor ceremony was held on the Umstead’s manicured landscape and was framed by a wooden arch covered in colorful blooms. Many elements came together harmoniously to create the perfect romantic setting – the serene water behind the landscape, the natural light from the sun, the saturated greenery surrounding the couple, and of course the beautiful blooms!

For the reception, guests entered the Umstead’s elegant ballroom. Tables were covered in deep burgundy linens and topped with rustic wooden boxes filled with fresh greenery, vibrant flowers, and floating tealights. The light from gorgeous chandeliers and an abundance of candles gave off a soft, warm glow that created the perfect romantic ambience.

Jennifer and Daniel shared their first dance as a married couple surrounded by love from their friends and family. After enjoying a delicious dinner, guests were treated to ice cream, root beer floats, and most importantly wedding cake! The couple’s cake was a beautiful four-tiered creation with colorful blooms on each tier and a gold topper reading “Mr. and Mrs.” After celebrating their love with the people closest to them, Jennifer and Daniel sealed their fairytale wedding day with a kiss. Cheers to the Pelliccias!
