High school sweethearts Bronwyn and Ben have always loved playing Frisbee golf together. So when Ben strategically placed an engagement ring in a Frisbee goal for Bronwyn to find during one of their many games, the storybook wedding wheels were set into motion.

Bronwyn and Ben’s summertime ceremony was held at The Chapel of the Cross on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. The bride wore an exquisite Pnina Tornai dress during the ceremony, and then changed into a second dress for the reception. Each bridesmaid selected her own black satin-faced taffeta dress in either mermaid or trumpet style, each completing her look with a set of double strand freshwater pearls, given to the ladies by the bride. To differentiate the maid of honor from the rest of the bridesmaids, Bronwyn adorned this special lady in waiting with a unique black feather and crystal headpiece.

Both Bronwyn and Ben are avid Tar Heels fans, so the historic Carolina Inn was an obvious choice for the venue of the pair’s rehearsal dinner and reception. Bronwyn chose a timeless and classic color scheme for her wedding, which included blacks and cremes with gold and platinum accents. Tables featured romantic pomander-style centerpieces draped with delicate Swarovski crystals. Each arrangement was made primarily of antique roses, peonies and hydrangeas with very minimal greenery.

Customized platinum calligraphy was used for the place cards and menu cards, allowing all paper material to match her colors perfectly. Special attention was paid to lighting, including a projection of the new couple’s monogram on the all-white dance floor and pin spot lighting to make the tall floral arrangements sparkle. The elegant cake had platinum detailing, sprays of sugar flowers and a breathtaking birdcage topper with sugar lovebirds.

The Carolina Inn provided a mouthwatering five-course seated dinner, complete with a sushi bar and chilled seafood station for cocktail hour, and mini milkshakes and warm chocolate brownies for late-night snacks.
