After touring the Claude Monet exhibit at The North Carolina Museum of Art, Jaclyn of Timeless Love Weddings and I found ourselves intensely inspired for this Garden Wedding Editorial. Being a wedding photographer in Raleigh, NC I know there are so many wonderful wedding venues in the area but Jac and I knew the Walnut Hill would be the perfect wedding venue for our vision.
The Walnut Hill
Nestled among acres of undeveloped land, Walnut Hill is an easily accessible venue with a private, secluded feel. Water was a staple of Monet’s most famous works and so having the ceremony by the pond with the beautiful water fountain highlighted through the Infinity Ring Arbor paid homage to the great artist. The floral notes found in Monet's pieces were brought to Walnut Hill not only in the magnificent arbor, but also in the garden-inspired floral arrangements along the aisle. Quaint duck ponds and towering lush trees created just the right mood for an elaborate and elegant picnic dinner from Catering Works that was fit to be painted.
Trading in the Parasol for an Umbrella
The truth is that nothing goes perfectly at any event, but a true professional team of vendors will make sure your day is a success no matter what. Would you believe that this event was interrupted by rain?! When the storm clouds rolled in on this day, all the vendors promptly helped to protect the beautiful décor items. Every vendor was committed to the success of the day and that’s why true professionals with lots of experience making the world of difference with painting the big picture for your best day ever!
Without further ado, sit back, grab your parasol, and get prepared to be wowed by this romantic and elegant wedding by the water!
