Personalized Wedding Suites by One + Only Paper

Botanical invitations by One + Only Paper are inspired by favorite paintings from the bride’s home. The paper suite pairs classical scripts and fonts with modern elements, gold foil and a wax seal – to become the couple’s own household crest. This sophisticated look sets the tone for the Barn Chapel Hill wedding venue – which is a very elegant barn venue in NC. It also happens to be a flower farm, so the wildflower watercolor paintings make perfect sense! How gorgeous are the blue tones?

The Barn of Chapel Hill wedding venue also has a ceremony site on a patio right outside of the event space, with lovely landscaping. For couples that are searching for a space with customizable charm and a beautiful surrounding, have your NC wedding at this upscale barn setting. The Chapel Hill wedding venue can easily serve as a blank slate to show off your personalities on your wedding day.

The styled ceremony is placed in front of the Barn of Chapel Hill’s hemlock main door. Comfy vintage styled metal and wood chairs from Cottage Luxe are shaded from the late afternoon sun by stylish market umbrellas on the courtyard. The reception is hosted within the barn, which is draped in blue and white to resemble a summer tent. The entirety of the property is used and customized for this couple from the ceremony, reception to wedding portraits.

Local Homegrown North Carolina Wedding Flowers For Decor

Wild Flora Farm grows all local NC flowers and made the beautiful floral designs in this styled shoot, as they do for all their own weddings at The Barn of Chapel Hill. The florist wrapped flowers and vines from the beautiful barn door to create a natural ceremony backdrop.  Large garden inspired arrangements were placed throughout the reception area in the Chapel Hill wedding venue barn, and beautifully crafted bouquets were designed for each member of the wedding party.

Sentimental Decor to Enhance this Elegant Chapel Hill Wedding Venue

Gather Together used the inspiration of creating an extraordinary ‘at home’ celebration to transform this wedding at The Barn of Chapel Hill into a personal affair. The couple incorporated heirlooms and treasures with meaning. An ornate mirror was re-purposed as a centerpiece with flower arrangements and Herend collectibles line from Bailey’s Fine Jewelry, line the wedding party table. The result was that this Chapel Hill wedding venue felt like an intimate, at-home wedding. Personal touches add so much meaning to a wedding day!

Classic Southern Portraits by Raleigh Wedding Photographer Renee Sprink

The bride and groom posed together on the terrace of this gorgeous Chapel Hill wedding venue. The pair nestled in front of large urns in front of the old with overflowing garden blossoms for their family heirloom wedding portrait.

Cozy Outdoor Lounge by Cottage Luxe at Chapel Hill Wedding Venue

The Barn of Chapel Hill wedding venue has a ceremony gazebo on-site. Since this couple used the barn as their wedding backdrop, Gather Together instead styled the gazebo of this Chapel Hill wedding venue into an outdoor wedding lounge – with the help of Cottage Luxe. A mix of furnishings was placed around a beautiful floral rug all centered under a draped gazebo. This gave guests a respite where they could chat and feel comfortable throughout the evening, complete with an outdoor bar.

The Cupcake Shoppe of Raleigh created a trio of wedding cake masterpieces in the form of baked goods. This shoot consisted of two pattern-alternating smaller cakes with a larger center cake.
