After a long distance relationship, Hannah and Chase were ready to marry June 15 at Tavern Meadow in Winston-Salem, N.C. “Our wedding was very friend- and family-oriented, which made it very special for us,” Hannah said. “We were able to bring all the people we love together.” The bride walked down the aisle wearing a J.Crew wedding gown and accessorized with a flower hair pin. Bridesmaids, dressed in sage green, carried matching blush peonies and baby’s breath bouquets. “During our ceremony, Chase and I planted a gardenia bush together in a pot,” she said. “Chase poured in the soil while I poured in the water. This symbolized the beginning of our marriage and how we need to tend to it, so it can grow just like the plant itself.” An ice cream cart from Blue Ridge Ice Cream kept guests cool during the reception, including the adorable flower girls. Her favorite moment? “Dancing with my husband for the first time as a married couple.”
