Jamie & Marc’s Love Story

Jamie and Marc met in modern fashion, online. After an unfortunate incident where technology was not on their side and the two were disconnected, they found each other once more and decided to meet up. They had sparks the moment they met and knew they wanted to see where their relationship could go. It didn’t take Marc long to know she was the one and after receiving her father’s blessing, he popped the question!

Charming & Romantic Wedding at The Sutherland in Wake Forest, NC

It’s no surprise that couples like Jamie and Marc find themselves drawn to The Sutherland as their wedding venue. The Sutherland was originally a family estate in the 18th century. With its rich history and modern upgrades, it has become one of the most sought after locations for brides and grooms.

The property is situated in a beautiful garden setting, surrounded by large oak, magnolias and pine trees on all sides. The Sutherland has countless picturesque spots for wedding ceremonies and receptions that it would be next to impossible to not find at least one spot you love. Whether you’d like an outdoor garden wedding in their lawn, a rustic ceremony with a forest backdrop, or a modern ceremony inside their brand new pavilion, The Sutherland has it all!

Jamie shared, “From the moment we walked into the historic southern style home, there was just so much class and was very romantic. The grounds were so beautiful and we loved that both the walled garden and the pavilion were available for both the ceremony and reception!”
