Snipes Farm Retreat Chapel Hill North Carolina Wedding.

When you think of a classic, elegant affair, flashes of a ballroom or similar ritzy venue come to mind. However, Hilary and Doug showed that you can have that affect anywhere. You just need the right details. They tied the knot on an old dairy farm in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and it was truly an elegant wedding.

It was such a romantic setting as they exchanged their vows under an oak tree.

The bride is always the center of attention and Hilary was absolutely stunning. She wore a strapless gown that had incredible applique. She wore her hair pulled back in a bun that was perfect for the dress. She did not wear lots of jewelry. She had drop earrings. The groom and groomsmen wore black suits with blue ties. The brides maids wore short dresses. They was the perfect complement to Hilary so that the wedding was not overly fancy. But even though the nuptials had more of classic tone, they added elements consistent with the venue. They had some details that were really wonderful.

First of all, the name for each guest was attached to a clothes pin. Is this homespun or not? They had a box for guests to leave them advice and the sign was handmade out of burlap. They also had a sign on the chair for the bride made of burlap as well.

Even though they did embrace the venue, it was still an elegant affair. The table setting definitely set the tone. They did not eat at picnic tables. It was so elegant. The white tablecloths were adorned with a runner in the center and then they had the crystal glasses.

They had homemade desserts and identified them with signs telling the guests what they were. They also used Chinese lanterns for illumination.

But they also did not forget that they were on a dairy farm, which gave their nuptials some additional charm. Pick your venue. Select your theme by embracing your venue. You can even blend it by adding little touches. More than anything have fun. It’s your wedding day and should be the happiest day of your life.
