Highgrove Estate Wedding in Fuquay-Varina, NC

January 23, 2023

A chilly December Highgrove Estate Wedding in Fuquay-Varina can be a beautiful and magical experience. The bride, Madison, who decided to do her own hair and makeup, looked absolutely stunning. Her hair was styled in a classic updo with delicate curls cascading down her shoulders, and her makeup was soft and natural, highlighting her natural beauty.

The First Looks

The day started off with a sentimental first look between the bride and her dad. The look on her father’s face as he saw his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time was priceless and filled with love and pride. Later on, Madison shared another first look with her groom, Cody. The look of joy and excitement on his face as he saw her walking towards him was a moment that will be forever etched in their memories.

Madison’s dress was simply breathtaking. It was a classic and elegant ball gown that was reminiscent of Grace Kelly’s iconic style. The dress was made of delicate lace and featured an illusion neckline and a full skirt that flowed beautifully as she walked down the aisle. Her cathedral veil accented her dress beautifully.

The Highgrove Estate Wedding Ceremony

Before the ceremony, Madison’s bridesmaids gathered around her to pray and offer words of encouragement and support. It was a beautiful moment of sisterhood and unity that set the tone for the rest of the day.

As Madison walked down the aisle on the arm of her dad, Cody couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear. The love and joy between the couple was palpable and it was clear that this was the happiest day of their lives.

The Reception

The reception was joyful and lighthearted, with plenty of laughter and happy tears. One of the highlights of the night was the father-daughter dance, which started out sweet and sentimental but quickly turned into a party as the bride and her dad let loose and had fun on the dance floor. It was also lovely to see the groom’s grandmother on the dance floor, enjoying herself and celebrating the newlyweds.

The night concluded with a sparkler exit on the front porch of the venue. The bride and groom walked hand-in-hand, surrounded by their loved ones, as they said their final goodbyes and started their new journey as husband and wife. It was the perfect ending to a beautiful Highgrove Estate wedding in Fuquay-Varina, NC.
