Ashley and Zack’s summer wedding at The Barn of Chapel Hill was the epitome of relaxed elegance! The rustic barn and surrounding landscape made for the most enchanting backdrop for their ceremony, while their cozy indoor reception had the intimate charm of an at-home celebration – but with gorgeous lofty ceilings and plenty of room to dance.
Ashley prepared for her magical day, mimosa in hand, having her hair and makeup done alongside her bridesmaids. Once everyone was ready, the bridesmaids put on their soft blue gowns and waited for Ashley’s big reveal. The blushing bride looked stunning in a satin ballgown with a sweetheart neckline, lace detail on the bodice and an embellished waist. On the other side, Zack and his groomsmen stepped into their classic navy suits and completed the look with soft blue ties and light bloom boutonnieres. Ashley and her bridesmaids added summer colors with their bouquets made up of vibrant pink and other light blooms interspersed with greenery.
The outdoor ceremony was filled with color from the bright pink blooms, which were arranged with billowing white linens atop a wooden pergola. The summer sun cast the perfect glow on the couple as they said their “I do’s” in front of the striking green landscape, making the ceremony feel as if it was taking place in an enchanted forest.
Guests escaped the heat and entered the historic barn for the reception. Round tables were topped with soft blue linens and a brilliant arrangement of summer flowers sat in the middle of each table like a beautiful individual garden. Hanging market lights and tall candles encased in glass vases illuminated the assortment of pink blooms and greenery and created a lovely romantic ambience. Ashley and Zack shared dinner and enjoyed dessert with their loved ones before dancing the night away under the glow of the string lights overhead. Natural elements, summer sun and love came together to create the perfect day – cheers to the newlyweds!
