Christina + Phil | Intimate Home Wedding | Tented Wedding | North Carolina Planner


Christina + Phil came to us with the most exciting idea. They wanted to create the most enchanting, modern, intimate feast for 30 of their closest friends -- oh yea and they wanted to get married right in their backyard! Taking inspiration from a garden out of a moody and romantic dream and the couples' affinity for a modern touch on style - this design was a perfect fusion of their vibe. Guest were invited to join C+P for their celebration on hand lettered invitations custom created for each guest.


As guests were escorted to their seats, they were greeted with customized menus with their names, and overhead a installation inspired by an art piece depicting a inverted and illuminated tree. Paired with velvet linens and the crisp feel of structural florals and barely there ghost chairs - the space transformed into something magical for C + P's guests.

Over the top, jaw dropping food was a top priority for T+P - so we called on top Triangle Chef Chris Hylton of ORO in Downtown Raleigh to bring it to life. From fried squash blossoms to crispy whole duck, this was a true feast fit for any food and wine connoisseur!

At the conclusion of dinner, music began playing on the back veranda and the lawn came alive with a warm glow created from lighting installations throughout the space.

And as if the feast weren't enough, guests were treated to a s'mores bar and signature cocktails to cap off the fantastic night celebrating their sweet friends' marriage!

Cheers to the happy couple and a great team of vendors!
