A Silver and Ivory wedding

Rachel and Brian

O.Henry Weddings - Rachel and Brian

Rachel and Brian had a beautiful vision for their May wedding at the O.Henry Hotel in Greensboro, North Carolina.  Silver, ivory, and touches of soft pink flowers made this Pavilion and Cloister Garden outdoor wedding a truly elegant and romantic setting to celebrate with close family and friends.  With just 25 guests in attendance, Rachel and Brian filled the Cloister Garden with heartfelt hand-written vows that left not one dry eye in the crowd.  While hanging votive candles twinkled in the trees, the guests transitioned into cocktail hour, followed by an intimate dinner in the Pavilion that was designed with silver linens, silver chairs, pink peonies, and loads of candle light.  With great conversation and signature cocktails flowing, the night was truly a celebration of the love that Rachel and Brian share.

With uplighting at the base of each tree and votive candles hanging from the braches, the Cloister Garden sparkled and glowed as the sun set during dinner.
