Whimsical Cottagecore Wedding

High school sweethearts Molly + Damian tied the knot outside Molly’s family home in Statesville, NC. They brought all the whimsical cottagecore wedding vibes with vintage patterned linens hanging on a clothesline behind their beautiful floral-covered altar, mismatched antique china dining sets and cutlery, and romantic string lights hanging throughout the tents at the reception.

The morning had been nice and sunny, but right as the ceremony was about to begin, there was a downpour! Everyone had to rush under the reception tents for about 20 minutes to wait out the storm.

Once it cleared, the chairs were wiped off and Molly and Damian were surrounded by close family and friends as they exchanged vows.

These two just exuded warmth and love for each other that affected everyone there! The love continued through heartfelt toasts from Molly + Damian’s best friends at the reception, and everyone had a blast dancing the night away celebrating these two!

Advice from the bride: Make your wedding day about YOU. BE SELFISH WITH GRACE. Your wedding day should ONLY have people and aspects that you, yourself, appreciate. That includes your grandma, your mom, your dad, the mother-in-law!

It is your and your partner’s day. If you fully prioritize what you two want throughout the planning process, then come your actual wedding day you’ll likely have little nerves and little stress.
