Meet Stephanie and Stephen, our sweet, fun loving couple who got married at The Umstead Hotel and Spa this past March. Stephanie and Stephen’s day was simply perfect! Their love for each other was perfectly captured in the beautiful images by the amazing Kemper Fant Photography!
Since they met and fell in love at the University of North Carolina, choosing the triangle and The Umstead Hotel and Spa as a wedding destination was an easy choice for these two Tarheels! The Umstead provided a full weekend experience for Stephanie and Stephen’s loved ones and served as the perfect backdrop for their vision of an elegant and timeless affair!
The wedding day weather forecast made for an uncertain start to the day but as luck would have it, skies cleared one hour prior to the ceremony, allowing Stephanie and Stephen’s dream of being married on The Umstead’s wedding lawn to come true! Family and friends sipped on Ginger Margaritas (a personal favorite of the Bride and Groom) as the couple shared their vows and became husband and wife. After the heartfelt ceremony officiated by the Bride’s family minister, the reception began in The Umstead Ballroom which was beautifully decorated in a soft metallic palate with stunning arrangements provided by the ever talented team at Kelly Odom florist. Stephanie and Stephen kicked off their night with their first dance performed by the amazing Groovetown band who then kept the dance floor packed the entire night! After a delicious meal provided by The Umstead, guests indulged on the beautiful wedding cake and an ice cream sundae bar (the bride has a major sweet tooth)! The night ended with a pom pom exit that had guests roaring with laughter and the newlyweds beaming with excitement!
A huge thank you to Stephanie, Stephen and their families for allowing us to be part of such a memorable weekend! Thanks to the awesome team of vendors who made their day simply perfect!
