Caroline & Casey’s Carolina Wedding

Romantic Spring Wedding by Raleigh Wedding Planner La Cosa Bella Events

Caroline Marks first met Casey Stevenson on a youth group trip. But it was over 13 years later before Caroline got enough nerve to talk to her childhood crush – thanks to Tinder! Their connection was natural and immediate. This sweet duo puts a never-ending smile on one another’s faces. As a Raleigh native, Caroline chose The Angus Barn wedding Pavilion for the reception. With its rustic-chic interior design, this romantic bride wanted to add a touch of sweet feminine beauty to her wedding design. 

That’s where Raleigh wedding planner Gina Myers of La Cosa Bella Events applied her expert eye for detail. Gold, ivory, and multiple shades of pink added the perfect amount of glam to this rustic Raleigh wedding. 

“A few months into our engagement and several new gray hairs later, we realized that we needed some help planning and hired the lovely Gina Myers with La Cosa Bella Events,” Caroline said. “We picked her because she has a great eye for detail and I really liked her portfolio style and thought it would work well with my style.”

The bride and groom welcomed guests to their ceremony with a calligraphy sign by Mason Dixon Designs, written on a vintage mirror that belonged to Caroline’s grandmother. Custom red and white programs made by Theresa Jatko Designs were also waiting for them.

Romantic pink and white flowers lined the aisle leading up to the mantle. The bride and groom said “I do” under the breathtaking greenery installment above the fireplace. Raleigh wedding planner La Cosa Bella Events designed both the ceremony and the reception.

Gina Myers of La Cosa Bella Events made every piece of the reception cohesive and with the right amount of glam. Guests were invited to cocktail hour and found their seats on a gorgeous glass calligraphy seating chart by Theresa Jatko Designs. Each table was adorned with place cards in chic frames, and menus with personalized place settings. Monogrammed napkins? It doesn’t get any better or more Southern than that y’all.

Caroline’s hand wasn’t the only wedding detail featuring a diamond on the big day. Diamond oval back chairs from American Party Rentals invited guests to tables adorned by spectacular floral centerpieces. Floating candles and branches covered in twinkle lights set a warm glow over the wedding reception. Other showstopping elements from Caroline and Casey’s wedding design included delicately textured linens from CE Rental on each table.
