Meaghan+Alex // Alamance Historical Museum Wedding

We were so thrilled with this chillaxed Saturday afternoon brunchtastic wedding. There were cute dogs and Home Alone and I got to ride standing in the back of a golf cart to go see a cute horse. And that was just one hour into the day. The rest of the day involved a very wonderfully creepy historical museum on a beautiful plot of land during the most idyllic day of the fall in North Carolina. Meaghan’s dress was one of my all-time favorite wedding dresses (BHLDN) and I threatened to steal it several times. She looked gorgeous. Alex was also looking mighty handsome in our first ever maroon groom suit jacket which we definitely need to see more of. They’re several cars ahead of everyone on the east coast fashion train, and that’s how we like ’em. Then we made them stand in front of strange wallpapers and old pianos and graveyards and had the best day ever.

In addition to being cute, they’re also lovely and hilarious human beings whose company we thoroughly enjoyed. And despite me walking through this graveyard for their pictures, I don’t appear to be haunted yet (knock on wood!) so that’s a plus. The graveyard is of the family of the first guy who brought plaid to the U.S. Yes, plaid! It’s like a graveyard for lumberjacks and Scotsmen. Everything was so fall and so southern charm and had such a hint of mild spookiness that I wanted to roll around in all of the magnificent Magnolia leaves and absorbbbb the wedding. But that wouldn’t be social acceptable, so I just took pictures of it. Also, Peter Lamb the Wolves were there, and they’re our favorite jazz band and we just adore working with them. IT WAS THE PERFECT DAY.
