Emily & Stocks | Wedding at Southern Bleachery

Emily and Stocks love exploring new distilleries and breweries, so it made perfect sense to have their wedding at Southern Bleachery. This venue is right next to their favorite brewery, 13 Stripes. More on this later. Emily and Stock’s wedding day was full of laidback fun, and I’m so excited to share it with you on the blog!

The Ceremony

Emily and Stocks opted out of a first look because they wanted the first time seeing each other to be when Emily walked down the aisle. But Emily did share a super sweet first look with her dad that had us all in tears! Stocks and Emily met as camp counselors, and the alter backdrop displayed a verse from the camp song which is called “Carolina Gave Me You.” Plus, we made sure to get the newlyweds a private moment after the ceremony, as they shared a little walk across the street to 13 Stripes Brewery to grab a beer together.

The Reception

When I asked what Emily was looking forward to most about her wedding day, she described, “Dancing with Stocks. Celebrating with our friends. We don’t normally dress very formally, so I’m excited for the excuse to dress up and dance to be honest.” And Emily looked stunning in her gown! Just wait to see.

Emily and Stocks’ thoughtfulness was evident throughout every single detail and decoration piece. They chose Southern Bleachery for it’s rustic and industrial feel. But they also liked that they could add their own touch with decor to personalize this space. Their love for breweries showed up in the centerpieces being repurposed whiskey and scotch bottles! Aside from the open bar, the couple created a custom cocktail, “Bourbon Peaches” too!

Stocks is very close to his fraternity brothers, so the reception was full of dancing and fun with this lively bunch! To add to the fun twists of the day, Emily and Stocks planned a “breakfast for dinner” theme with a dessert table, no cake. Instead of the traditional wedding cake, they surprised their guests with donuts! And not just any donuts. Krispy Kreme were delivered as a late night snack, and everyone was happy about that (including me!).
