Carly and Adam’s Heartwarming Fall Wedding at Carlee Farm in Oxford, North Carolina
As a photographer, I’ve had the honor of capturing countless love stories, each unique in its own right. Carly and Adam’s recent wedding at the picturesque Carlee Farm in Oxford, NC, was nothing short of magical. It was the perfect celebration of their deep love for fall, and their thoughtfulness left a lasting impression on me.
A Love That Celebrates the Season
Carly and Adam’s love story is intrinsically connected to the season of fall. The rich colors, the crisp air, and the enchanting beauty of autumn have always held a special place in their hearts. Their wedding was not just a celebration of their love for each other but also a tribute to the season that brought them together.
The wedding was an explosion of autumn colors, with shades of mulberry, orange, purple, and yellow. Every detail, from the decor to the floral arrangements, paid homage to the vibrant hues of autumn. Pumpkins and gourds adorned every corner, adding an authentic touch of the season. The decor seamlessly blended rustic and boho elements, creating an atmosphere that felt like something out of a fairy tale.
Thoughtful Souls and Kind Hearts
From the very beginning, it was evident that Carly and Adam were one of the most thoughtful couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Our initial conversation led to a surprising and heartfelt gesture. They gifted me their favorite board game and a cookbook, knowing our love for board games and collecting cookbooks. It was a gesture that spoke volumes about the kind of people they are—thoughtful, caring, and appreciative of the people in their lives.
Carly and Adam’s thoughtfulness extended beyond their guests to their choice of wedding favors. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, they discovered a newfound passion—candle making. With care and creativity, they crafted personalized fall-scented favors for their guests. These beautiful candles were more than just tokens; they were an embodiment of their love and warmth, symbolizing the light they wished to share with their loved ones.
