Ciara + Will

In the midst of a crazy wedding season, we are lucky to take a few minutes today to share an incredibly wonderful wedding with you. Shot by the always amazing duo, Kendrick Brinson and David Walter Banks, from Our Labor of Love, we're sure Ciara + Will's wedding at Dunaway Gardens will turn your hectic Monday around and leave you spellbound.
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.
