Goldsboro NC Wedding. April Grace and Bryant had a beautiful Goldsboro NC wedding at First Baptist Church, but getting there was truly fate. The couple grew up five minutes from each other but never met. Years later, Bryant was roommates with April Grace’s older brother but still, they never met. The fateful meeting took place the night of his 22nd birthday, when she was out with some friends. They were introduced and a friend even joked that she would make a speech at their wedding. Four years later, the two were making plans to walk down the aisle.
The doors of the church were decorated with wreaths of magnolia leaves and large white ribbons.
April Grace was a classic bride. She wore nude-colored heels with statement beading, carried a timeless bouquet of white and cream roses, and wore a strapless lace gown with a fit-and-flare silhouette. She also chose a fingertip-length veil with a lace hem to match.
Hardly containing their smiles and excitement, the couple took photos before the ceremony. Bryant looked splendid in a crisp black tuxedo with a sleek black tie. Their wedding day looks were eternal.
Between the alleyway, the couple took photos before April Grace joined her bridesmaids.
Dressed in long, taupe-colored dresses with lace necklines, each lady accompanied her look with a classic white bouquet.
Bryant and all of his groomsmen made a handsome group. Each gentleman matched the groom in a black tuxedo with a white pocket square and white boutonniere.
The photo shoot continued outside around the perimeter of the beautiful church. The couple held hands going down the street until it was time to part ways.
With a spray of flowers in front of them and a loving congregation to their backs, April Grace and Bryant said “I do” in a traditional church ceremony.
They said their vows, lit a unity candle, and sealed their commitments with a kiss. Upon being pronounced as husband and wife, the couple couldn’t conceal their joy.
Much like their ceremony, they had an equally elegant reception at the Walnut Creek Country Club that featured classic tones and décor. Tall arrangements of hydrangea, delphinium, and greenery could be seen around the room.
Clean white tables featured gold charger plates, white dinner plates, and white napkins, all placed in front of sleek leather chairs.
The beautiful bride was whisked on to the dancefloor by her husband, as they were announced for the reception. They enjoyed a romantic first dance as husband and wife.
Their cake was basked in a blanket of blue up-lighting. Four sweet tiers were covered in buttercream and dotted with small pearls of frosting. The creation was embellished with roses and baby’s breath and topped with an elegant personalization.
April Grace and Bryant’s big day was an unforgettable destination on their journey together. Congratulations!
