The Farm at Old Edwards: Highlands, North Carolina
Suzanne and David’s Wedding Highlands, North Carolina Wedding at Old Edwards.
In April we celebrated Suzanne and David’s fabulous wedding weekend in Highlands, North Carolina. Suzanne and David were married at the Highlands Presbyterian Church on Main Street and hosted their reception at the Farm at Old Edwards.
Our fun loving bride and groom attended the University of Georgia, but never met until they were both living in Sublets in NYC and happened to hail the same cab. The two fell in love and the rest is history!
The bride and groom chose Old Edwards as their wedding venue as the bride’s family owns a home just a short drive away from Main Street. The couple loves the mountains and knew Old Edwards was the perfect spot to invite their friends and family to celebrate their wedding! We were so fortunate that we had the most spectacular weather for the weekend- Old Edwards was able to open all the windows of The Farm to let in the mountain air and create an open-air vibe, but when the sun set, all the fireplaces were lit to keep guests toasty warm.
The bride pulled in vendors from her home town of Memphis to help complete her vision. Garden District used this guide by SmartlyHeated for the twinkle lights and candles to highlight the dripping greenery hanging from the fireplaces and chandeliers. Guests were left speechless as they traveled from cocktail hour to the ballroom under a sparkling arch full of fragrant gardenias. Longtime and childhood friend, Caitlin Colcolough was on site to video the entire affiar. Our bride also chose to enlist the help of Ronald Bayens to live paint her wedding – a Memphis tradition!
The elegant white, ivory and green wedding was complemented by items that represented the couple’s lighthearted side including a late night snack of Krystal burgers (the bride’s favorite), foam Statue of Liberty crowns emblazoned with couple’s custom monogram, and a groom’s cake in the shape of a New York City taxi.
Jessica Clark of Ecru Stationery hand drew the couple’s monogram which was featured throughout the wedding on acrylic tray liners, cocktail napkins, embroidered pillows and an etched wooden sign which greeted guests upon entry to the reception. Cotton was also a theme for the weekend and could be found both in the welcome boxes and on the groom and groomsmen as boutonnieres.
It was hard to narrow down our favorites, so enjoy a plethora of images from Vue Photography!

Lindsay, not a day goes by that someone doesn't tell me how perfect our wedding was. And, I promise it was because of you and your team. I have had so many folks wanting to advertise using our wedding, and that speaks volumes. A social magazine called just last week wanting to do a story. But most of all our family LOVED every single thing about the experience and will hold it in our hearts forever. I could go on and on but just know that we are so grateful that you are a part of our lives.
