Even though Nan and Matt were nervous about the “temperamental, hurricane-season North Carolina weather,” the couple married outdoors at The Crabapple Garden at Fearrington Village near Chapel Hill under bright blue skies. Julia Wade Photography took the gorgeous pictures of Nan and Matt’s day, which included a barn reception, lush white florals by Mary Stevens of Fearrington Village, and a pretty textured cake by Jill Leckey, also of Fearrington Village. Nan’s lace Alvina Valenta gown was classic all the way, but the bright blue Badgley Mischka heels she wore offered an elegant pop of color and a nod to her alma mater, Duke. The bridesmaids also wore bright blue Amsale dresses, while the groomsmen’s light blue High Cotton bow ties pledged their allegiance to Matt’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina. They may be split on college loyalties, but we all agree that this was a practically perfect wedding weekend!
