Danielle + Jeremy | Jun 8, 2019
Blush, dusty blue and grey with gold and geometric accents and a simple style at the industrial Byron’s South End in Charlotte, North Carolina
Flashback a few years ago, and Danielle and Jeremy were meeting for the first time through mutual friends at a pub in Charlotte. Coincidentally, they both attended University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at the same time, but never crossed paths. The rest was history.
When Jeremy decided to propose it couldn’t have been more romantic. They were in New York City at Christmas time and he picked a snow-covered bridge in Central Park for the big moment.
Ever since Danielle and Jeremy got engaged, they have been planning the wedding of their dreams. Their dream was brought to life on a perfect June day. The mix of the industrial backdrop with the soft blush and dusty color palette, and the pop of metallics and sharp geometric shapes created the most amazing romantic and simple industrial style.
Danielle spent the morning at her hotel getting glammed up with all her ladies in cute matching pajamas. Once her half up, half down ‘do was secured into place with pearl barrettes, her maid of honor helped her into her dress.
The lace dress was strapless with a slight sweetheart neckline and buttons down the back. She topped it off with a classic pearl necklace and pearl earrings. All the pearl details added the sweetest southern touch to her look. She slipped into her sparkly heels and headed downstairs to meet her groom for the first look.
Jeremy couldn’t be missed in his electric blue suit that he paired with a grey tie. Danielle walked up behind him and it didn’t take but a second for Jeremy’s jaw to drop and for the two to come together. They enjoyed their first few minutes of that day together in private before their sweet dog showed up for a picture. After that, the bridal party joined them.
The bridesmaids set the tone for the dusty color palette in mismatching dresses in a range of blush, grey and blue shades. The groomsmen wore complementing grey suits and dusty blue ties. Their white boutonnieres kept the look simple and classic.
After some pictures in the hotel, the group headed over to a fun and quirky spot just outside the venue. Between the colorful heart mural and the brick backdrops, each spot gave Rob + Kristen Photography a unique backdrop to work with.
Meanwhile, across the courtyard, the ceremony was set up inside the atrium. There was a backdrop of white drapery with beautiful greenery cascading down it. On the floor were aisle markers made up of gold geometric terrariums with candles and greenery, creating an industrial and romantic feel.
Guests arrived and were welcomed into the atrium by the sounds of a string trio.Just before the processional began, Danielle shared a sweet first look with her dad then the processional started. Once Jeremy and the bridal party took their spots in front of the drapery, Danielle made her way down the aisle on the arm of her father.
The ceremony began and right after the blow glass unity ceremony, the couple shared their first official kiss as husband and wife.
Cocktail hour began in the same space as the reception but was sectioned off with more white drapery. While guests grabbed a drink and signed the wooden skyline guest book, Something Perfect was busy finalizing the reception space behind the drapery.
The venue itself set the industrial feel with its geometric shaped chandeliers, exposed duct work and brick walls. The cream colored linens kept things simple while the centerpieces added the romance.
Some of the round guest tables were set with cascading short blush and ivory floral arrangements in gold compotes with a variety of different candles, some had a tall gold harlow stand with a matching floral arrangement, while others had a cluster of gold, geometric terrariums and candles with accenting greenery. Each look added to the overall romantic and industrial feel.
The focal point was the long king’s table against the back brick wall. It stood out with a metallic shimmering linen and a long runner of greenery, loose soft color blooms, geometric terrariums and candles.
Once the drapery was pulled back, everyone began to find their seats and the night really got started. There was dinner and dancing, followed by dessert and more dancing. But let’s go back to the dessert part for a second because they had not only the most amazing looking cake, but also a table filled with donuts.
A square, three tiered cake sat on top of a gold stand and was accented with some loose greenery. Each tier had gold watercolor strokes and the whole thing was finished off with a gold geometric shaped last name topper. Across from the cake was a table filled with, also, square shaped donuts from the couple’s favorite local shop.
At the end of the night, guests grabbed a jar of homemade Carolina BBQ rub and a container of bubbles and headed outside. They lined the sidewalk to surround the newlyweds with bubbles as they left.
We wish all the best to Danielle and Jeremy!
