Real NC Wedding : Jamie & Scott at Real NC Plantation Wedding
Happy Wedding Wednesday! We are so excited to share this Real NC Plantation Wedding with you! Sweet Southern details abound in this gorgeous June wedding at Rose Hill Plantation, and Scott + Jamie make one great looking couple. The couple’s engagement sounds like it was straight out of a romantic movie, (Scott proposed at a sunset dinner on a private beach in Aruba) so it is only appropriate that their wedding have a little Hollywood inspiration.
Photographed by Bill Broere Photography, Jamie’s dream wedding was inspired by a film most girls know and love – Sweet Home Alabama. “After seeing the white plantation style houses in this movie, I said to my parents, ‘This is the kind of wedding I am going to have when I grow up.’ So when we saw Rose Hill Plantation we knew it was perfect”, says Jamie of the classically styled wedding venue in Nashville, NC. Her wedding was executed by planner Chad Biggs with Your First Impression.
Jamie also says, “When thinking about the beautiful decorations from our wedding day I look back to the long hours into the night spent online and looking through magazines. I turned to Weddings Magazine a lot for inspiration in planning the details of our wedding day!”
“We wanted to have an ivory, gold, and blush wedding to go along with the plantation charm of the location. I focused on this theme while looking for inspiration for our own decorations,” explains Jamie. Her favorite details (and ours!) were the Mr. and Mrs. signs on the back of their wedding chairs, and the beautiful monogram “L” on the aisle, made of pink rose petals. “We also designed and created other special touches for our reception like the monogrammed napkins, matches, and menus. We wanted to have personal gifts for our wedding party as well so we monogrammed robes and caboodles for the bridesmaids and monogrammed razors and toiletry bags for the groomsmen.”
Jamie’s stunning gown was Maggie Sottero, while her bridesmaids dresses were found at Weddings Mag event partner Maggi Maids Bridesmaids Boutique. The ladies at Maggi Bridal are always so helpful whether you are searching for a gown or for bridesmaids attire! Jamie’s hair and makeup was also done by a friend of the mag, Images by Denise. You can see more of her work in our styled shoots from the 2013 issue!
