A Chic Modern Wedding in Wilmington, NC

The Bride Courtney Benedetti, 27, head of the hair department of NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and owner of Brides by Benedetti The Groom Kevine

The Bride Courtney Benedetti, 27, head of the hair department of NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and owner of Brides by Benedetti The Groom Kevine Tooke, 27, an investment banking associate for Deutsche Bank The Date May 5 Courtney and Kevin pulled off a gray and yellow wedding that was cohesive without being too matchy-matchy. Lots of candlelight, bold patterns and homey touches made for an intimate affair.

The ruched, modified sweetheart neckline on the bride's gown was perfectly feminine for the self-proclaimed girly-girl. Kevin chose a black skinny tie to go with his light-gray suit.
Small glass vases were filled with springtime blooms and hung from the ends of the chapel pews.
Never a fan of matching bridesmaid dresses, Courtney trusted each of her seven girls to pick her own dress in a soft neutral color.

Stay with You by John Legend was the perfect choice for their first dance.
Courtney and Kevin got married on her parents' anniversary. To commemorate the day, Courtney gifted them with these custom-embroidered handkerchiefs.
The couple rode from the ceremony to the reception in this vintage car.
On some of the tables, peach peonies, lamb's ear, hydrangeas and craspedia filled white ceramic vases.
The same quatrefoil pattern from the invitations was piped onto the top tier of the cake; it was the perfect contrast to the messy buttercream frosting on the bottom.
Tables were topped with warm-gray linens, sea-grass chargers and votives.
Guests signed the backs of puzzle pieces, which were displayed in a glass jar along with wooden block letters of the couple's initials.
In keeping with the pattern theme, all the men wore different patterned ties.
Head Table Décor
The girls carried pretty pastel bunches of hydrangeas, lamb's ear, craspedia and peonies.
When it came to their invitations, the couple knew they wanted something fun and different. The bold patterns went on to inspire the rest of the wedding décor.
