Nicole and Josh had a lovely indoor ceremony in March with their three children and parents present. Josh was in his Army dress blues. They shared a unity candle during the ceremony. Afterward, the couple shared a dance, there was a father/daughter dance, and the couple cut their cake. We had some fun photos outside; I love the cherry blossom blooms!
The first of November is traditionally the peak of color in North Carolina. Laura and Ernest planned a lovely wedding with just the two of them. They arrived the day before after picking up their wedding license in town, and spent the night in the Willow Cottage at the 1812 Hitching Post. The next day, Laura went to town to have her hair and make-up done. She came back and we had a lovely ceremony on the side lawn surrounded by fall colors.
Their cake topper of two Adirondack chairs, a mini pumpkin, and some tiny fall leaves was a perfect feature. The couple shared a first dance on the lawn and a glass of champagne.
After the ceremony, the couple spent a lovely afternoon on the property and another night at the cottage.
When Jennifer told me she wanted to be married as early as possible on the first of October so she could have lights on her arbor, we set the ceremony time at 7 a.m. This was the earliest wedding we’d ever hosted at the 1812 Hitching Post and it was beautiful! Jennifer and Kevin came by the evening before to decorate the arbor. The morning of the wedding, we tuned on the LED lights and lit the candles on the walkway. A fog made the outdoor photos unique. Jennifer’s adorable daughter had a light up crown with daisies. The bride was walked down the aisle by her father.
The Kramer’s sweet strawberry flavored cake was topped with daisies and was surrounded by wedding photos of the parents and grandparents of the couple. The couple shared a first dance to Zac Brown’s “Free.” After the ceremony, they all went to the Charlotte Renaissance festival.
