Mesmerizing, right? Dunaway Gardens is one of our favorite venues: There are so many little nooks and crannies to get lost day-dreaming in, and every inch of the grounds is filled with lush beauty. We could just spend all day there! And who better to capture Dunaway's enchanting charm than Kendrick + David? Like a breath of fresh air, their images make us feel invigorated and refreshed. We are always blown away by their work, and Ciara + Will's wedding images did not disappoint. We were also thrilled to work with Corrie at Signature Weddings and Blooming Flour Bakery again, always a pleasure.
Ciara + Will chose a tapas style menu for their wedding celebration, blending some traditional and southern fare with a few fun twists. The biggest hit of the night was the shrimp + grit station, where guests could customize their toppings on our delicious cheese grits with sautéed shrimp served in adorably small mason jars. We also put a new twist on the ever popular Carolina pulled pork + purple slaw appetizer, serving it deconstructed with sweet potato biscuits and fried jalapeños. Other stations included a soup station featuring several soups and accompaniments like tomato soup and mini grilled cheeses, and a more traditional station with our miso glazed salmon and roasted vegetables. We loved that Ciara + Will were willing to get creative and have fun with menu, it is always a treat to have a bride and groom that embrace something new and different.
Best wishes to this lovely couple, and a huge thanks to the incredible vendors who made Ciara + Will's wedding an unforgettable evening.
