College friends who fell in love after reuniting several years after graduation, Ashley and Ethan knew that they wanted to throw a party for the ages to celebrate their marriage, and they succeeded in showing their family and friends an unforgettable wedding day. The sun shined brightly on the stunning grounds of The Bradford, a European countryside inspired wedding venue located in New Hill, NC, as did the smiles of the bride, groom and their wedding party. Ashley and Ethan’s charismatic personalities were evident in every aspect of their wedding, from the personalized wedding party gifts to the radiant florals designed by Bloom Works to the hot pink sunglasses they wore as they recessed down the aisle as husband and wife. Guests were treated to a decadent meal prepared by Catering Works and a stunning 4-tier white wedding cake with gorgeous pink, peach and green florals designed by Pastry Works.
The day’s highlights included Ethan’s gift to Ashley- a book written by the groom entitled “The Reasons Why”, having their ceremony officiated by a close family friend, the bride and groom “making it rain” on the dance floor with Cash Cannons, a late night black and white sweets bar, and DJ Willis keeping the party going full speed until the very end.
Congratulations, Ashley and Ethan! We will never forget your contagious laughter, radiant smiles and kind, loving hearts. Thank you for trusting Chestnut & Vine to coordinate your dream wedding.
