Are you looking for a more modern venue that has easy access for guests such as a hotel ballroom? There are a few beautiful venues here in North Carolina that may appeal to what you are looking for.
Bride Natasha’s love and respect for family resonanted in this decision to hold her wedding at the same church in Tennessee that her parents before her and her grandparents before them also got married in. Nestled in the country side of Bluff City, TN sits this quaint little church, now called Rockhold United Methodist Church, where Natasha and Lars said “I Do” in August of 2014. Can’t you just feel the love? We think so!

Are you looking for a rustic, outdoor, garden type venue for your wedding? There are a few beautiful venues here in North Carolina that may appeal to what you are looking for!
First, take a look at the beautiful gardens at The Gardens at Gray Gables located in Summerfield, North Carolina. Using a gorgeous victorian home as the backdrop, the owners have developed the gardens and surrounding property with many amenities. The Bridal Cottage (where the bride and her miads can all get ready together) is new this year, along with a special spot for the guys inside the house. The arbor is both large and attractive allowing for considerable creativity in decorating! The recently added Cocktail Hour patio is a wonderful place for guests to enjoy a cocktail before heading to the large, permanent tent where the reception is held. It’s not uncommon to find guests roaming the property enjoying the koi ponds and wildlife. What a beautiful retreat to invite your guests to spend the evening at! www.thegardensatgreygables.com. All photos of The Gardens at Gray Gables were taken by Elizabeth Larson Photography.
Next consider Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm located in the Roxboro, North Carolina countryside. This venue sits on 260 acres of pristine land and has a beautiful lakeside gazebo that seats 150 guests. Your guests are sure to enjoy the views of the buffalo roaming around close by. And the large permanent tent completes the reception opportunity. Be sure to give hosts Sandy and Jack a call for a private tour! www.sunsetridgebuffalo.com
We can’t seem to get enough of lavender and purple here at The Wedding Galleria by Bella! It seems like everywhere we look, we find a way to incorporate this color scheme. Recently, Bennett Baskets ‘n Bows decorated the Castle McCulloch in Jamestown North Carolina in abundance with lavender and purple and we thought you would enjoy the look. Let us know what you think!
For more floral and design inspiration, stop by the Wedding Galleria by Bella and visit all of our talented vendor displays (including, of course, Bennett Baskets ‘n Bows!). All photographs by Bert Reed Photography.
If there is a bride out there looking to vamp up her style for the big day, a timeless dress can do just the trick. Lace has been a classic trend brides have been smitten with and is perfect for any wedding season. Whichever neckline, skirt style or waistline suits your dream dress, lace is a fresh and everlasting trend that will make you feel incredible on your wedding day.
