Destination weddings are a perfect chance to celebrate becoming husband and wife in a beautiful setting away from home. Stephanie and Ryan gathered their friends and family for a lovely wedding in the mountains of North Carolina, at the Banner Elk winery. The venue choice offered an intimate setting and they chose a quaint country barn as the location for the ceremony and family-style reception. Â Â
Inside the ceremony, guests sat on simple wooden benches as they watched Stephanie and Ryan exchange vows.
Stephanieâ€™s dress was stunning â€“ it featured a simple sweetheart neckline and voluminous, airy hemline. The brideâ€™s gown was a perfect complement to the natural textures and colors of the wedding location. Stephanieâ€™s bridesmaids wore long dresses with a one shoulder neckline and they complemented the bride perfectly. The style in this wedding shows you can wear any type of dress, even if you are married outdoors or in a rustic setting â€“ so beautiful!
After the ceremony, the barn was transformed into a family-style reception, where guests enjoyed a delicious menu and lovely cake. Instead of the traditional topper, the word â€˜loveâ€™ adorned the top of the cake â€“ a beautiful way to create a unique touch!
We love north carolina weddings!
