Claire + Vic’s wedding took place in Clayton, North Carolina at the beautiful Portofino Equestrian Center. It was my first time there and I hope not my last! Such a pretty venue for a wedding. The stable was gorgeous inside. Those are some very lucky horses! The bridal suite is on the second floor of the stables and was a perfect place for Claire and her bridesmaids to get ready. The ceremony space was beautifully framed by two mature trees. It felt very intimate and was very fitting as their daughters stood up there with Claire + Vic as they recited their vows to one another. Could not have asked for a nicer fall day!
The reception was full of family fun. Vic had a special dance with all three of his daughters and also with his new stepdaughter. It was very sweet watching them dance. I was fighting back tears! Their family is quite talented, too! Not only did Claire’s daughter sing a song in honor of her mom and new husband, but Vic also got up there. He serenaded his new wife with a song and a little guitar. Seriously, a keeper right there!
I felt honored to be a part of their special day and I wish them nothing but the best!!!
All of the vendors did a great job!
