From the bride, Rebecca: Both Carlos and I were born and raised in Miami, a very flat and tropical place. When we moved to North Carolina we absolutely fell in love with the mountains. We wanted our wedding to take place in the mountains surrounded by their beauty and to share that with our family and friends from back home. All of our guests traveled to our wedding.
I loved how intimate the view of Grandfather Mountain was from the balcony.
For the seating chart, we scribed everyone’s name and their table numbers on the actual window panes from the house that Carlos and I bought about two years ago and are in the process of renovating.
I loved that our venue had a rustic aesthetic to its architecture and I wanted to contrast it with more feminine details and color palettes. I searched, and searched, for lace doilies for all the tables. This was by far, one my favorite details.
Since we were having our wedding in the south, and in the mountains, we wanted to give all of our friends and family a little taste of our lives in North Carolina and decided that we wanted our wedding menu to be a reflection of the culinary identity of the region: fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grit cakes, fried chicken, biscuits and jam, etc.
The best thing about our wedding day was getting to share our day with our closest family and friends!
