Private Residence Wedding

This classic North Carolina fall wedding, held on acres of family farmland and boasting a 650-person guest list, was as big on style as it was on size. With the beauty of open land as the backdrop, the ambitious installation took an entire week to complete. But once finalized, it was memorable indeed. La Fête’s event designers created a tented, outdoor event that blended chic style with down-home comfort.  They arranged for the wedding party to arrive at the reception in a horse-drawn carriage, and transformed an old equipment shed into a swanky lounge featuring couches, oriental rugs, wall mirrors and red uplighting. Folksy décor such as whiskey barrels, old-fashioned lanterns and cowboy boots completed the scene, while guests enjoyed signature cocktails served in antique Mason jars.
