In December of 2019, Bailey and Andrew said their vows at Chatham Station in a winter-themed ceremony that was as crisp and elegant as the season.
On this warm December day, friends and relatives of the couple gathered to watch them celebrate a new beginning in a singularly modern-meets-traditional way. Guest entered through the courtyard and then one of our bay doors to sit facing an array of live Frasier firs and beautifully coordinated elements. Evergreen clippings and candlelight lined the aisle and Bailey’s bridesmaids wore deep evergreen gowns with fur stoles while the groomsmen wore steel grey suits with blush ties.
Bailey, who was visibly moved during the procession and ceremony, was the perfect winter bride, wearing a traditional ivory lace gown and veil. She carried a voluminous bouquet of large roses, diverse evergreens, berries and pine cones to complement the decor. The colors and textures of the wedding party were amazing.
Bailey and Andrew’s reception choices of decor were clean, wintery and warm, as well. Sheer curtains were hung to create an ethereal vibe. Tables showcasing lacy blush chargers and napkins, centerpieces in varying heights, clusters of candles, birch limbs, gold, white, evergreen, ivory and shades of grey were present throughout. The color palette was consistent across elements, fabrics, florals and decor, and the result was stunning.
Thanks to the weather we enjoy in the South, even during the December holidays, the couple was able to have an outdoor cocktail hour. The sofas, pillows, chairs and other elements – like the welcome sign above – were on point.
This really is a new beginning for the pair. Bailey and Andrew are recent college graduates, he in finance and she in athletics, and the pair were loyal in their vendor choices. They hired several based on long-standing relationships, something we admire in any couple.
Finally, we really loved their First Look moment, which took place in front of Christmas-decorated storefronts in downtown Cary. It was sweet, simple and elegant.
Congratulations to you Bailey and Andrew! Here’s to more warm days and lots of happiness in the years to come.
The newlyweds and Chatham Station are happy to share the day’s vendors with you!
