An NC Museum of Art Wedding // Erin + Matt

You guys, I am SO excited to finally share this wedding! I’m pretty sure the NCMA is one of my all-time favorite wedding venues. David and I already spend so much time there as guests…so to be able to do what we love on their beautiful grounds? Total bliss!  There are so many hidden gems throughout the art museum and accompanying park. I could have spent all day dragging these two around! Erin and Matt were wed in the North Carolina Museum of Art’s Wheeler Garden last fall. Their entire wedding was filled with so much love and laughter…it was a perfect day!

Erin and Matt are such awesome, genuine people. I loved that throughout the day their friends and family kept approaching us to share stories of their relationship and personalities. Everyone seemed to want to stress to us what an easy-going and fun couple they are – a perfect complement to one another. (And we totally agree!) David and I were so honored to be able to document one of the happiest days of their lives.We wish them all the best in their new lives together!

What is your favorite wedding day memory?
Erin: “The First Look. It was such a special moment for Matt and I to see each other before everyone else, and it helped calm my nerves prior to walking down the aisle. We felt so much love from our family and friends the whole day…that kind of feeling you never forget.”
Matt: “The First Look, of course! …Walking down the aisle, the exit – all of it!”

What were some of your favorite wedding details?
Erin: “The dress…nothing has ever fit me like that dress!! I adored the flowers and the M + E wooden medallion my dad made for each bouquet. The detail we scrambled a bit for was our exit, but in the end, I loved the LED balloons as it provided soft lighting and a unique touch.”
Matt: “The dance floor was awesome with the light tree in the background! I also loved the LED balloons for our exit.”

Do you have any advice for couples currently planning their own weddings?
Erin: “Finalize all of the major details far in advance: venue, # of guests, photographer, caterer, DJ, and florist. For the smaller details, really focus on what would represent you and the groom. You will get a lot of ideas and recommendations from others, but stick to what you want. For me, I took a little time to myself for a mani & pedi + massage on the week of the wedding. This is a chance to rest and enjoy the moment…once your guests arrive, it gets a little hectic!”

Erin: “Matt and I took a mini-moon to the mountains. We stayed at the Bear Cub cabin in Leatherwood Mountains in North Carolina. It was just perfect for us to be together and enjoy the things we love while relishing in the fact that we are newlyweds. The leaves were changing and created the perfect backdrop for hiking…and wine in the hot tub! We are planning to take a longer honeymoon next year.”
