Olivia & Drew
The Evermore Farms | Apex, North Carolina
November 12, 2022
Olivia and Drew tied the knot at The Evermore Farms in Apex, North Carolina. They met through Olivia’s brother, who was already friends with Drew. Drew knew Olivia was the one for him. So, while on a private carriage ride, he popped the question, and she said YES!
A Bohemian Wedding on a Fall Day
Olivia’s favorite part about planning her wedding was choosing her colors. She used Pinterest as a source of inspiration to help her pick colors that complimented her bohemian vibe and the fall season. As a result, she chose a range of colors from turquoise, navy, mint, burnt orange, burgundy, and gold. Olivia and Drew’s colors matched perfectly with their fall theme and tied together beautifully. I fell in love with how each bridal party couple wore individual coordinating colors, further embracing the color palette. In addition to creating their perfect palette, choosing the venue was equally important. Olivia and Drew found The Evermore Farms to have everything they envisioned, from its rustic barn aesthetic, outdoor horses, and bohemian vibe.
Wedding Day at The Evermore Farms
The Evermore Farms provided suites for both Olivia and Drew to get ready. Soon after capturing their getting-ready moments, we went outdoors to take bridal party photos. Olivia did her dress reveal while holding surprise drinks in hand. The bridal party enjoyed a drink together, leading to many fun personalities captured. The outdoor ceremony overlooked an open green pasture while standing over the couple was a stunning floral arch. Olivia and Drew exchanged sweet words in front of their loved ones, with individualized tissue packs placed on each seat to catch all the happy tears.
Finally, it was time for the reception inside The Evermore Farms’ beautiful wooden barn with tables decorated with ivory, deep orange, and burgundy bohemian floral centerpieces. When the reception began, Olivia changed into a modern dress and performed a surprise choreographed dance for the groom. Afterward, everyone happily met on the dance floor to celebrate with the newlyweds. A mobile drink bar, including a dessert bar, was open to the guest throughout the night. To conclude their wedding, Olivia and Drew ended with a sparkler exit and heading off on the back of a pickup truck. I had the pleasure of taking Olivia’s senior pictures for high school graduation, including her sibling. Not only was their wedding day fun, but it was also very special to be a part of it.
