Paige and Chris met through a mutual friend the summer before Chris left to go to college. Paige was a rising senior at Chapel Hill High and thought dating an older boy was so cool! Little did she know that seven years later, they would be husband and wife. On their wedding day, we started photographing all the little bridal details at Paige’s parent’s home and I immediately fell in love with her Sophia Tolli dress. It was absolutely stunning! Soon, Paige arrived from the salon with her hair and makeup done, and she was glowing. Besides looking absolutely gorgeous, she was beaming with joy and it was infectious!
Chris and Paige’s wedding day was filled with family, fun and laughter. Their intimate ceremony at St Thomas More, the church where Paige has been a member of for the past 17 years, focused on the love they shared for each other, their family and their friends.
Since Chris and Paige both grew up in Chapel Hill, they knew that they wanted to have their reception in a Chapel Hill staple. As a patron of Top of the Hill for many years, it was a no-brainer once they toured the Great Room and saw the mix of modern amenities with the old charm of the building. Besides that, the staff at TOPO are amazing and they love the fact that the venue is also a distillery and brews their own beer.
The color scheme was navy and gold, with accents of lighter blue to show off the blue hydrangeas that they used predominantly throughout the day. They made sure that the reception had personal touches, like the memorial wall, which had pictures of their deceased loved ones and creating signature cocktails that fit the day. Their drinks were “Something Blue and Something Brewed,” where the “Brewed” drink was “Dark and Stormy” since there was a chance that their wedding day would be dampened by the tropical storm that was passing through NC.
Congratulation Paige and Chris, it was such an honor being part of your day!
