The Carolina Inn Courtyard Wedding

Melissa and Dan were married in September at the historic Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill.  Melissa was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and she wanted her wedding to be a reflection of her sweet and charming Southern personality.   We decided that the Bryan Courtyard at the Carolina Inn would be the perfect spot for her early morning ceremony and reception.  The courtyard was filled with vintage furniture from Simply Put which created a wonderfully relaxed vibe for the event.  After the ceremony a Southern brunch was served complete with a biscuit bar, fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese and shrimp and grits.  Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Melissa opted for an assortment of delicious pies and a mini pie-to-go for the favors.  The day was captured by the amazing Dara Blakely of Dara Blakely Photography.
