Melissa & Jimmy’s Carolina Inn Wedding

Melissa and Jimmy were married on October 2nd at Saint Thomas Moore Church in Chapel Hill, NC.  I loved the simplicity of the black bridesmaid dresses and of course, what girl doesn’t love a groom in full uniform!?  (Melissa and Jimmy were moving to Germany where the groom stationed after the wedding.)  This was a 12pm wedding and the reception was immediately following at the Carolina Inn. This wedding was a perfect example of how much fun afternoon weddings can be.  I have so many brides who are concerned about early afternoon receptions because “people won’t dance or have as much fun.”  This was definitely not the case with this group – they danced and celebrated all afternoon.  I don’t think there was a single moment the dance floor was packed and no one wanted it to end (you will see in the images below how evident this was)!  It was also one of those perfect fall days and the home football game at UNC only added to the enthusiasm, though both bride and groom were Clemson fans 🙂

I hope you enjoy the beautiful pictures by Carolyn Scott Photography.  She did an amazing job and is just cute as a button and a joy to work with!  There is a really funny picture of me filling up the champagne glasses for the toast – ha!
