This Couple Brought The Outdoors Inside at Their Umstead Hotel Wedding

A Black Tie Affair Wedding at The Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary NC

Lisa and Joe’s Umstead wedding was a beautiful affair to remember, not just for themselves but for all their guests too!

Lisa and Joe’s vision of a black tie affair wedding at The Umstead Hotel was everything and more. Not only was the bride’s gown a complete masterpiece by Inbal Dror, her bridesmaids were as elegant as can be in long black gowns. The groomsmen and groom looked ever so sharp in classic black and white tuxedos. The attire of the wedding party was simply stunning, and being that the bride and groom were coming from NY, it’s no wonder that the classic black wedding party look was what they decided on.
