A Formal Wedding at Highlands Country Club in Highlands, North Carolina

Kelly Sandefer (29 and in private wealth management) and Andrew Dennis (30 and a sales director) decided to plan an elegant destination wedding in Highlands, North Carolina, with three nights of events. The pair exchanged vows during a traditional ceremony at United Methodist Church followed by a classic reception at Highlands Country Club. "Highlands, North Carolina, was the perfect location for us," says Kelly. "It provided the rustic-yet-elegant wedding theme we wanted for the entire weekend." The wedding party set a formal tone with black tuxedos and black strapless gowns. A black and white color palette lent a sophisticated air, while fuchsia accents added a pop of color. From the bride's elegant purple and white bouquet to the submerged flower centerpieces, purple orchids were carried throughout the decor. As a late-night treat, guests were surprised with chicken biscuits and havarti grilled cheese after an evening of dancing and photo booth pictures.
