A Rustic Rainy Wedding at The Farm at Brusharbor in Concord, North Carolina

A charming rural farm set the scene for Fran Holoman (28 and a school psychologist) and Kate Croke’s (29 and a nurse) personalized nuptials, where an open-air terrace shielded the pair and their 105 guests from a little unexpected rain. “Having a readily available covered space was important to us,” Kate says of choosing their dream venue. “We also loved that the barn had all of the appeal of a rustic venue with elegant touches too.” A classic color palette of navy, blush and white adorned the venue’s interior, while the brides’ punchy sneakers added a playful pop of color to their overall looks. “My mom painted the bottom of my shoes to match Fran’s just a few days before our wedding,” Kate says. “The rainbow soles were a subtle but fun tribute to our pride for the LGBTQ community.” In addition to fresh blooms, the couple's favorite books and board games dotted dining tables.
