An Urban Industrial Wedding at Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, North Carolina
From sloths riding unicorns on the wedding favors to wearable rabbit heads for the guest book and amazing DIY details, this wedding could not have been more reflective of Kara Meader (27 and co-owner of Hart's Soda Shop) and Greg Urquhart (33 and co-owner of Hart's Soda Shop). Wanting their wedding to feel super-local and ultra-personal, Kara and Greg decided to support as many local vendors as they could. Everyone—from their ring designer to their florist and the tailor—was from the surrounding area. Their artistic personalities led them to Neighborhood Theatre in the arts district of Charlotte, North Carolina. They loved its open layout, urban industrial vibe and ability to be customized to meet their needs. One of our favorite details was Kara's vintage wedding dress, which her mother had worn about 30 years earlier. "As a little girl I would try it on and walk around the house pretending to be a bride," Kara says. Her friend, Abi Desrosiers, turned the long-sleeve A-line dress into a short, cap-sleeve masterpiece. There's so much to love about this wedding—see all our favorite details, beautifully captured by Finch & Farrow Photography, below.
