Natural Wonder Wedding | Charlotte Wedding Planners

Abbey and Derek are a fun nature-loving couple that married at Triple C Barrel room this summer.  The couple’s engagement story is what dreams are made taking place while hiking a mountain in Switzerland.  And their love of hiking and the great outdoors was ever-present during their special day. From the stunning greenery centerpieces to their use of national park motif, this wedding got us back to nature in the best way possible.

Their ceremony was so different and had so many unique touches that showed off their personalities.  Abbey worked with their friend, who just happens to be an amazing keyboardist, to mash up classical songs with nothing else by rap.  So she walked down the aisle to a one of a kind version of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”. The couple exchanged vows under large tree branches while friends and family looked on. Even their sweet dog Bear was there as he walked down the aisle and listening intently to his parents get married, talk about sweet.

After the ceremony guests were welcomed to cocktail hour. Guest mixed and mingled and enjoyed the endless beer selection Triple C had to offer.  After cocktail hour the reception was underway. Guest were seated at tables named after the National Parks Abbey and Derek have visited. Each table was its own park and had information about the park itself as well as pictures of the couple hiking there.  So cute! After Abbey and Derek were introduced as husband and wife they went straight into their choreographed first dance. You could really tell they had spent a lot of time practicing and rehearsing their number. But the smiles on their faces as they nailed on the moves was priceless.   After dinner, the dance floor opened. Their amazing live band kept guests on the floor and everyone really had a great time.

The night ended with a sparkler send off celebrating the couple’s marriage. They were then off to their honeymoon to do what else by hike the great outdoors!

Congratulations Abbey and Derek.  We here at Magnificent Moments Weddings wish you love and many many years of happiness!

With Love,
