Love is All Around

Rosey + Lauren | Oct 4, 2019

A romantic, garden-inspired wedding with a dusty blue color palette at the industrial Byron’s South End in Charlotte, North Carolina 

Rosey and Lauren met through an online dating site. It was clear from the start that they were meant to be together. They were so different but complemented one another perfectly. 

It was Rosey who proposed first using two of Lauren’s favorite things: champagne and cookie cake (sounds like our kind of girl!). Lauren’s proposal shortly followed using one of Rosey’s favorite things: their dog.

When wedding day rolled around, it was all about celebrating their love. From the heartfelt ceremony to the literal heart backdrop for pictures to the romantic, industrial garden reception where they danced the night away it was all perfect. The dusty blue color palette added to the romantic and fall feel of that beautiful October day.

The day began with all sixteen (yes, sixteen!) bridesmaidsgetting ready together. Once hair and makeup was done, the two sides of the bridal party split up to help each of their brides get dressed. 

Once Rosey shared a first look with her bridesmaids at the hotel, she went off to meet her bride. Rosey stood on a third-story terrace across the street from the hotel waiting for Lauren to meet her. This was a beautiful and special moment for them, as they hadn’t seen each other’s dresses yet, come to find out they picked extremely similar ones!

Each bride wore an A-line gown with a sweetheart neckline. Rosey’s dress had the most beautiful beaded lace bodice, while Lauren’s had a crisscross pattern and featured a full tulle skirt. Also similar were each girl’s hairstyle, both having a pulled back into a low bun. But again, slightly different as Lauren’s featured a braid and Rosey’s a simple side part. 

After the first look, they headed over to the venue for some more pictures before the ceremony. With the most colorful and heartwarming backdrop behind them, the brides were surrounded by all the women they love most who all wore the most beautiful assortment of dusty blue chiffon dresses.

Meanwhile, guests began to arrive and take their seats at the ceremony. The space was lit with market lights and accented with greenery aisle markers. There was a triangular, wooden arbor decorated with more greenery to add a modern feel to the industrial space. 

From behind the draped curtains Something Perfectdirected the processional, as all the bridesmaids stepped out and walked down the aisle to take their spots. Two of the cutest little ring bearers processed out before the brides each took their walk down the aisle. The couple joined hands and didn’t let go until it was time for them to recess up the aisle. When they got to the end, Lauren handed Rosey a card she had been saving until that very moment and it brought tears to Rosey’s eyes. 

After the ceremony, guests walked around the corner for the reception. They entered an industrial feeling garden that had a modern twist. The exposed brick and modern chandeliers mixed with the florals to create that feeling.

Round guest tables in white linens surrounded an extra-long farm table. All the tables had navy blue napkins at each seat to tie into the color scheme. Each round guest table featured some sort of gold terrariumsfilled with greenery and succulents for a modern, garden feel. The head farm table was also filled with gold terrariums and a greenery and succulent table runner. There were also a few taller, cement-like vases filled with more garden-inspired florals. The bride’s chairs at the head table each had a “Mrs.” sign tied to the back. 

The band kicked off the party and introduced the bridal party and the couple, who then shared their first dancetogether. After their first dance, they each shared a dance with their father at the same time and then one of the sweetest moments happened. The brides switched so they were each dancing with their new father-in-law.

After the sentimental moment, grace was said, and the dinner stations opened. The couple headed outside for a few more romantic pictures before coming inside to cut their cake. The two-tiered, all white cake was surrounded with garden flowers and succulents and was almost too beautiful to eat. 

Cake was served and the dance floor officially opened. Once it was opened, it didn’t close. In fact, it was the place to be. The brides were front and center all night, literally, as they were up on the stage with the band half the night! 

The brides shared one more kiss on the dance floor before the best night ever came to an end.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
