Real Weddings: Camry & Eric's Elegant Whitford Plantation Wedding

Happy Wedding Wednesday! We have a gorgeous plantation wedding to share with you today, submitted to us by the very talented Katie Sams at Red Boat Photography!!! Everything about this wedding is elegant, including the beautiful couple, Camry and Eric.

Camry is statuesque in her gown and swooping veil, and Eric is dashing in his military dressed blues. The venue, Whitford Plantation, and it's surrounding lawns are just beautiful, and the lighting of the time of day, peaking through the surrounding trees, is completely ethereal. The perfect southern wedding for this beautiful couple.

Camry shared a bit with us about how she and Eric's relationship began, and how their beautiful day came to be:
Being from a small town, Eric and I knew of each other in high school and our paths crossed many times, but we never spent a lot of social time together. It wasn't until we were both at NC State that we started spending time alone. Everything just grew from there, and we spent the rest of our college years going to NC State games, taking shag lessons, and getting to know each other's families.

When we started planning the wedding we knew there were three very important things we wanted, faith, family, and southern. And what is more southern than a plantation! We found a beautiful venue in New Bern, NC where my parents are from, that fit us perfectly. We incorporated more southern details than I can remember, but the most important were honoring our families and friends and praising God for his faithfulness, love, and grace. My bridesmaids and I made the bouquets, my aunts and I made the boutonnieres, and two family friends did the centerpieces. We had a generous team of family and friends willing to give their time to help me. We wanted the focus to be on the beautiful venue and grounds, and created a look to enhance, not distract from, the venue itself.

It gives me much pleasure to present to you Camry & Eric's Elegant Whitford Plantation Wedding, captured by Red Boat Photography:

Simply beautiful. I love the bride's gown, the bridesmaids dresses, and their bouquets are gorgeous! I love that the dog is even dressed for the special occasion!
