The Oaks at Salem | Apex NC Wedding | Kirstie + Nate



filed in


Woohooo!! Our first wedding of the spring season and we sure did start off with a great one!! I’m so excited to share Kirstie and Nate’s wedding day with y’all and we are so happy to take you back to the beautiful The Oaks at Salem  ! How much do we LOVE this venue!

Kirstie and Nate’s wedding was the perfect blend of southern charm and elegance! I especially loved her take on the non-traditional bridesmaid dresses! Instead of the matching dresses we normally see, she mixed it up with different colors and fabrics and let her girls decide what they wanted to wear!  Each was unique and so gorgeous, and of course, Kirstie’s stunning BHLDN gown. Side note…if y’al have’t ever been to the BHLDN website, go RIGHT NOW.  This is Anthropologies’s bridal line and it is absolute perfection. It is also where I got my wedding dress (that needed ZERO alternations BTW) so yeah, I am a fan! Go check it out!

Kirstie and Nathan are two amazing people, with the absolute best families! It was wonderful to see how their families bathed them in so much love and adoration on their special day! Kirstie and Nate, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your awesome wedding day!!
