Dara + Dan - An Intimate Garden Wedding - Providence, NC

Dara and Dan's lovely intimate garden wedding took place on a beautiful summer afternoon back in June.  They celebrated with close friends and family at the home of the bride's sister Dena & brother-in-law. Dena is an avid gardener and their place looked amazing! Tables decorated with potted flowers along with an assortment of fresh and dried flowers, hobnob glass vases, white china, & teal and burlap tablecloths, were arranged on the patio overlooking the arbor and garden where Dara and Dan exchanged vows.

Immediately following the ceremony, cocktails and h'rodourves were served to the guests while Haley & I photographed Dara, Dan, and their families. The newlyweds were introduced and mingled with their guests just before dinner was served buffet style. Champagne was passed around to all of the guests for the toasts before Dan and Dara cut their wedding cake. It was a chocolate ganache covered in fresh berries with whipped cream between the layers. Dena, who made this amazing cake, insisted we try a slice. Oh my, it was delicious. She's not only a fabulous gardner, she's also a fabulous baker!

It will be a day to remember! Congratulations Dara and Dan - we loved creating memories for you!
