Megan + Austin | Southern Pines Wedding - Private Home Wedding | North Carolina Wedding Planner
When Megan and Austin came to us, they were so excited to have the opportunity to get married at Megan's family's home. If there is one thing we love planning it has to be private home weddings! Formally known as Knollwood House, the Radigan home is nestled in the long leaf pines of Southern Pines, North Carolina. With a lush golf course as the back drop, Megan and Austin would be married under strung chandeliers surrounded by their closest family and friends. As preparations for their wedding day began, we started with a concept of a open air black and white affair with the warm glow of chandeliers hanging from the trees lighting up the night. As Megan's vision evolved we incorporated lush centerpieces overflowing with gorgeous fuchsia peony blooms, warm ivory garden roses, and cascading greenery to tie in the outdoor theme.
Keeping with the black and white theme, the bouquets were tied with simple black and white stripe ribbon for a classic touch to the bright color palette! We even snuck in some structured greenery with the addition of succulents to the bouquets.
Often times our grooms only have a few requests for their wedding day, leaving most of the big plans to their bride to be - for Austin, it was his favorite cocktail to be a focal point of the day. The request fit perfectly into the vision adding complimenting metallic element to each place setting - pairing nicely with the gold charger and gold flatware. Each guest was treated to their own copper Moscow Mule mug to take home and we didn't stop there. Donovan's dish whipped up several different renditions of the Groom's favorite libation as a passed cocktail treat!
We added dimension to the space by mixing in a champagne sequin linen - always a eye catching favorite!
Bringing the vision of a home wedding to life is always such a treat for our team. Perhaps it is the personal meaning it gives to the space or a family opening up their home to be transformed into an ideal wedding day -- either way, we get to work with the bride and groom to change a familiar spot into the wedding day they have always dreamed of , literally right in their backyard.
We would like to send out a big "thank you" to all the vendors that collaborated to bring Megan + Austin's wedding day to life. Cheers!
