This gorgeous destination wedding shoot was a fun fashion frenzy in North Carolina. I flew out to help long time friend and planner Kandis Harvey of Blue Daphne Events.

The flower gardens boast an impeccably decorated mansion in the heart of La Grange, North Carolina. The new venue set the romantic tone for this shoot, showcasing elegant fountains. A Statue of David by Michelangelo replica, mature Oak and Japanese Maple trees, and picturesque brick walls.
This beautifully styled wedding shoot is a testament to the venue’s versatility and elegance. It kicked off its highly anticipated April 2023 Grand Opening.
