Emily and Hunter | Real Wedding | Foundation for the Carolinas

Have you picked up your latest issue of Carolina Bride Magazine? If not, run out, grab one and turn to page 40 to see our lovely Lineage Bride Emily and husband Hunter in all their glory. With our Theia Designer Weekend quickly approaching we thought it was only appropriate to share one of our favorite weddings dating back to May of last year where Emily wore a stunning Theia Couture design.

Emily and Hunter Gillespie were wed on May 13, 2017 at the Foundation for the Carolinas in Charlotte, NC. Surrounded by family and friends, the couple wanted to bring their love for the tropics into their wedding theme. Inspiration began when Hunter proposed to Emily in Charleston at the pineapple fountain and evolved further when Emily found a picture of a gold pineapple. "We got engaged in Charleston at the pineapple fountain, so when I saw a photo of a gold pineapple I knew I needed them in our wedding. I kept the tops green to match the pastel color scheme and succulents in the bouquets, and added the King Portea flowers {coolest flower we've EVER seen btw} to the bouquets and table decor because I loved how similar they looked to the pineapples," said Emily.

Wed wearing Marion from our THEIA Couture Collection, Emily never batted an eye at her dream bridal design. It seemed perfect and fitting for her venue and gave her the uptown chic look she longed for on her wedding day.

Enjoy this 'Real Wedding' feature and thanks to the fab team, Rob + Kristen Photography for sharing all the love and fun of Emily and Hunter's big day!
