Intimate Wedding in a Historic Chapel Venue

Intimate Chapel Hill Wedding at The Parlour at Manns Chapel

Intimate weddings have surged in popularity in recent years. And with good reason – it allows the couple to spend quality time on their special day with their nearest and dearest. The other benefit is that it allows the couple to spoil the guests with details like the event design and wedding meal. This special wedding at the Parlour at Manns Chapel was casually elegant in design and left the couple and their guests with memories of a lifetime – an intimate wine dinner wedding reception. The blush and marsala tones and details of the family-style dinner helped create a personalized wedding atmosphere. With the help of one of the best NC wedding planners, Kast Events & Company, the couple was able to create a lovely intimate Chapel Hill wedding.

Anna & Clay’s Chapel Hill Love Story

Clay Ditty and Anna Stagg met in an adult kickball league in Chapel Hill. She was in graduate school at UNC; he was in a master’s program at Duke. Despite their rival university affiliations, they hit it off. During a vacation to Bald Head Island, the pair got caught in a late afternoon rainstorm on the beach. Bundled in towels and watching the sunset in a swing overlooking the marina, Clay proposed.

The couple knew they wanted to host a personal, intimate Chapel Hill wedding and enlisted Kast Events to help plan and design their day at the Parlour at Manns Chapel, a historic NC chapel venue.
