Oh, what a night! Nell + Grant’s day was so lovely – from the details to the people, it was truly so sweet and fun.
Nell and her bridesmaids began the day at the Illges House, getting ready with the help of Carty Harike and Emily Maness. The girls sipped champagne in matching PJs, while the flower girls ran happily throughout the house. With the help of her mom and sisters, Nell stepped into her Anne Barge gown that fit her perfectly. Nell’s bridesmaids wore pale blue, floor-length dresses from Show Me Your Mumu, and carried beautiful bouquets of green and white, beautifully designed by David Benefield of Highland Hall.
Nell and Grant shared a first look in the gardens of the Illges House, as their family and friends peeked through the windows to see their reactions. Nell and Grant are both so calm and kind, and their presence is so calming and easy-going. Their day was a reflection of that. After some photos, it was off to Trinity Episcopal Church, where the two exchanged vows in front of their loved ones.
When the ceremony concluded, guests made their way to the Big Eddy Club, where cold champagne and beautiful floral sprays in sterling silver vases awaited them. From moss-laden sterling silver candelabras, to an exquisitely-crafted floral chandelier, the Big Eddy looked absolutely stunning.
After some sunset photos (how about that floating veil photo!?), it was time to cut the cake and hit the dance floor. Guests enjoyed dancing and merriment for several hours before Nell + Grant made their way through a shower of rose petals. Then, it was off to Italy!
Nell + Grant, it was an honor and a privilege to photograph your day!
