A Vizcaya Villa Wedding
Casey + Kris / Fayetteville, NC
We couldn’t be happier that Casey and Kris chose us to capture their lovely wedding! We loved getting to know these two (and their adorable pup, Rocky) during their engagement session this spring. Casey and Kris were married at Vizcaya Villa. Vizcaya is definitely a hidden gem in North Carolina. This former Fayetteville Museum of Art space has been transformed into a gorgeous wedding venue; with it’s tented veranda, ballroom, massive bridal suite, and lakefront ceremony site – it was the perfect setting for Casey and Kris’ classic black and red themed wedding.
No couple wants rain on their wedding day, especially when planning an outdoor ceremony. So I loved how calm and nonchalant Casey and Kris were when scattered showers forced them to move their ceremony onto the veranda. These two weren’t about to let a little gloomy weather ruin their day! And seriously – it was a perfect wedding day for this fun-loving couple!
Congrats, you two! We wish you both all the best!
What was your wedding inspiration?
“We got married in our hometown of Fayetteville, NC at Vizcaya Villa. We chose Vizcaya Villa because we both fell in love with the venue when my best friend got married there 2 yrs ago. Our inspiration for the wedding was to go with something classy and simple; and what better colors to represent classy than red and black, two of Kris’ favorite colors!”
What is your fondest wedding day memory?
“Our favorite memories of the day were, of course, us joining as one in marriage and having all of our closest family and friends there to witness our special day.”
What were some of your favorite wedding details?
“There isn’t one specific, favorite detail about our special day, everything was more than perfect!!”
Do you have any advice for couples currently planning their own weddings?
“My advice for couples is to take in the moment, every bit of it: the planning, the ups/downs, everything because time will fly and before you know it, it’s all over with. Don’t sweat the small stuff, that day is about you and your handsome ‘hubby!'”
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
“We went on a cruise to the Bahamas, which was such a blast to experience together cause neither one of us have been outside the states or on a cruise; so it was a first for both of us! The best part was that we missed the horrific hurricane by 1-2 days, nothing but sunshine for a week, which if you were present at our wedding, you know that was a blessing for us since it rained all day on rehearsal and our wedding day!”
