Barbecue & Bluegrass Fall Wedding Inspo in Downtown Durham

Fall Wedding Inspo at The Pit Authentic Barbecue in Downtown Durham, NC 

The Pit Authentic Barbecue restaurant in Raleigh and Durham is a family favorite. As you enter The Pit, the savory smell of whole hog slow roasting over charcoal and wood floods your senses. Other popular menu items at The Pit include their home-made mac n cheese and creamy mashed potatoes. It’s easy to understand why locals love to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings at The Pit! 

Located alongside Durham music hall Motorco, it’s not unusual to hear live music from The Pit’s outdoor seating areas. That sweet Southern combo of bluegrass music and barbecue inspired this styled wedding shoot. Local NC wedding vendors came together to create a “Boho Chic Bluegrass” styled wedding on the rooftop of The Pit. Hidden from street view, their private rooftop area gives you a unique view of downtown Durham. Planning your upcoming wedding rehearsal or dinner at The Pit will have your loved ones saying “Pass the barbecue sauce!”

Fall Wedding Flower Inspo from The English Garden at The Pit Authentic Barbecue 

The historic, warehouse wedding venues of downtown Durham, NC are known and loved for their exposed brick walls and industrial beams. The factory interior of these venues, including The Pit, require beautiful bouquets of flowers to give them a more cheerful and inviting event atmosphere. The English Garden florist company are experts at designing floral arrangements to match any wedding venue style.

For Fall wedding flowers, we love the warm colors of orange poppies, burgundy peonies, and plum dahlias, to name a few! These Fall wedding bouquets designed by The English Garden are bursting with warm tones and rustic elegance. Blending with the authentic warehouse atmosphere of The Pit, bouquets of Fall wedding flowers look beautiful in repurposed vases. Old washed out oil cans, tin buckets, and beer growlers make for centerpieces with character. These warm Fall wedding flowers by English Garden pop against the rustic warehouse decor.
