North Carolina Real Garden Wedding Bliss

We’re so happy whenever we can share a Bliss bride of our own! Today we’re so elated to share a bit of the story and wedding planning behind Danielle and Hunter’s fall wedding. Danielle and Hunter are a Southern couple through and through!

The happy couple wed at The Graylyn Estate in the ‘White Garden’ located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on October 18th, 2014. The historical home immediately spoke to the couple and perfectly matched their idea of romantic elegance.

It was only fitting that the couple marry in such a beautiful fall garden–nearly a year to the day-— after Hunter proposed to Danielle during a similar fall afternoon on October 19th, 2013 in the Duke Gardens. After enjoying a picnic and walk around the garden, Danielle paused for a moment to clear rocks and dirt that had accumulated in her heels (every woman knows this!) within the gazebo of the H.L. Blomquist Garden of Native Plants, a very secluded portion of the space. When Danielle looked up, Hunter was on one knee with a ring in hand.

The grandiose nature of the The Graylyn Estate certainly inspired the couple’s wedding theme. Danielle wanted to transport her guests back in time with a big band at the reception, and vintage China, all while adding touches centered on the garden theme. Much of the décor came from the history and natural character of the venue.

After all the festivities concluded the couple jetted off for an intimate honeymoon in Asheville, North Carolina where they could best enjoy the spectacular fall weather in a cozy cottage.
