Adaumont Farm Wedding NC
From Georgia to New York and back, Katherine and Edward’s story is a wonderful one! They met in Athens, where Katherine had been a student at UGA. Living in New York at the time, she headed south for a weekend of fun and football…and a little live music. The lead singer/bass player of the band Katherine saw on her trip was a young man named Edward. And meeting him after the show started something incredible in motion…in just a few years, Edward would propose to Katherine on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC!
Their summer wedding took place at Adaumont Farm, to the evident joy of many excited loved ones! Edward was moved to tears several times, especially when reading the letter Katherine had written for him. It’s moments like these that are truly a privilege to capture! And oh! The flood of excitement when The Funk Brotherhood (that’s Edward’s band) took the stage at the reception! As many times as the groom has performed live, I know that this show must have felt different for him. He was still doing what he loves (this time in front of a swirling, dancing mass of people who love him right back!). But this time…and for the first time…his wife was by his side.
And, saving the sweetest detail for last! The bride and her circle of friends maintain such a beautiful tradition: they all wear (or will wear) the exact same pair of earrings on their wedding day. The set is passed from friend to friend, with a note from the last bride to the woman about to be married. In this case, the previous bride happened to be Katherine’s best friend and bridesmaid Elizabeth! And for her ‘something blue’, Katherine wore a diamond and aquamarine ring that had been passed from her grandmother to her mother. These kinds of meaningful touches are everything on such a big day…they ground us in who we are and remind us of what matters most: Family and Love (…and Puppies! You know me, I have to shout out to fellow dog lovers…and Katherine and Edward have two fur babies! Charlie Brown and Leroy Brown, lab mixes both!)
The flowers from Cotton Social were absolutely beautiful!
