Sweet Rustic North Carolina Wedding


Is there anything sweeter than a DIY wedding in the South? Kat and Greg were married at The Barn at Valhalla in Chapel Hill, and between the handmade signs, adorable bunting flags, initials draping the barn door, and plenty of personalized paper products, they paid attention to every detail and made it their own. My favorite story from their photographer, Julia Wade, is that it poured rain on the big day, but Greg made sure that Kat was completely taken care of and relaxed. So sweet!

Relaxed, sweet, genuine…what a beautiful way to start out the month! Happy July!
