Gayna and Jonathan’s Southern Romance Wedding

Gayna and Jonathan were married this past October at Rose Hill Plantation. It was such a joy working with this genuinely sweet, thoughtful, and head over heels in love couple! Rose Hill Plantation was the perfect place to host their elegant southern wedding and have all their closest family and friends celebrate their love. Overlooking the water and fields, Gayna and Jonathan said their I Dos under a jaw-dropping floral arch by Eclectic Sage. We love when couples include their families into the ceremony and Gayna and Jonathan did just that. They invited their parents to join them underneath the gazebo to place letters inside a lock box for them to read later in their marriage. It’s such a special way to include them, and also to have something to look forward to years after such a special day.

After the ceremony, guests were invited over to Nathan Hall’s lawn and porch for some hors d’eouvres and cocktails! Once inside the ballroom, guests were surprised by a special guest; Steve the Pirate from East Carolina University put together an ECU-style introduction for the wedding party! This kicked off the night with excitement and high energy. The band PUNCH made sure to keep it going, until everyone saw Gayna and Jonathan off with a sparkler exit!

A big thank you to Thomas Blake Films and Cynthia Rose Photography for capturing these gorgeous and touching moments!
