Elegant North Carolina Wedding

Blue Label

This week’s Blue Label feature is shining the spotlight on Nancy Ray Photography. The groom is from the Dominican Republic and the bride is from North Carolina, so their ceremony was in both English and Spanish. This multicultural wedding was also planned beautifully by A Southern Soiree, with gold touches and twinkling details to make anyone fall in love.

From Nancy Ray: Leah and Raúl had the sweetest wedding day, full of soft colors, a mountain landscape, gold glitter and white florals. Yes, it may have been a little rainy and cloudy, but it was so beautiful. It was an intimate wedding at Raffaldini Vineyards in rural North Carolina, which was the perfect venue for them. Leah’s family lives on a farm very close by, and it was so quiet and peaceful. I loved how relaxed they both were, even when it was sprinkling outside, they wore big smiles on their faces. Raúl is from the Dominica, so having his entire family there made their multicultural wedding lots of fun.Their bilingual ceremony meant so much to their family and guests, and Leah surprised Raúl by saying her vows to him in Spanish! It meant the world to him. They even had a special “ring passing” tradition in the middle of the ceremony, where each guests holds their rings and prays a blessing over the couple.

    This was a very beautiful Wedding thank you for shearing your pitchers with us. May God bless you with a very long and happy marriage. If I may be so bold to say this, I have been married 37 years and it is hard work, but if you love each other it is well worth it, and remember Never go to bed mad at each other, always talk, and the number one thing to have a long marriage is to Always Keep God First,,

    This is really beautiful. I love the tablecloths and may need to know where those came from. ;) Not to mention: that last image is such a nifty idea!

      Hi Amanda,

      We rented the sequin tablecloths from La Tavola Linens. They are great to work with and ship everywhere. http://linens.latavolalinen.com/default.asp

      Thanks!
