Heather and Dave’s Carolina Inn Wedding

Last weekend we had the privilege of coordinating two time Olympic gold medalist, Heather O’Reilly and Dave Werry’s wedding in Chapel Hill at the historic Carolina Inn.   Heather and Dave met while in school at UNC Chapel Hill.  Heather played soccer for UNC while Dave played Lacrosse in addition to being a Morehead Scholar.  Heather is currently on the US Women’s professional soccer team.

Heather wore an off white Romona Keveza dress which she’d bought from Kleinfeld’s in New York and the bridesmaids wore simple black strapless dresses with Carolina Blue Pashminas.  The color theme for the evening was, of course, Carolina Blue, White and Black.  A true Tarheel wedding!   The florals by Purple Puddle were a mix of blue hydrangeas, lilly’s and black river rock.

The ceremony was held at St.Thomas More Catholic Church. The priest from Heather’s church in New Jersey performed the ceremony.  The festivities at the Carolina Inn were kicked off with a cocktail hour in Hill Courtyard and a surprise appearance by the UNC Lorelies. Dinner and dancing followed in Hill Ballroom at the Carolina Inn with music by The Attraction Band out of Richmond, VA.  Those athletes can party!  The dance floor was packed all night!  Such amazing energy!

In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, Carolina Blue cupcakes were provided by Sweet Memories Bakery.

Neil Boyd and crew were there to capture each moment of the evening.  Here are a few pics!  For more amazing images you can check out Neil’s blog at http://blog.neilboydphotography.com/heather-david/.
