This weekend, Simply Southern Photography headed out to the gorgeous Hunting Creek Farms in Hamptonville, NC. It’s a new wedding and event venue that has just the right touch of rustic and luxury – one of our favorite things!
There were quite a few vendors available to greet attendees and share their work. We loved the creative ice sculptures by Artisan Ice Sculptures.
Check out this very cool ice sculpture just in time for Halloween – including built-in liquor chillers and a pouring feature.
For rustic weddings and events, you can’t beat burlap! I thought these invitations by SmaccDab Creative were beyond unique and original – the invitation is printed directly on the burlap!
If burlap’s not your thing, don’t worry – they offer other invitation styles as well – everything from parties to rehearsal dinners to weddings!
The ladies at Gluttons Catering kept the crowd fed with creative finger foods that were tasty and beautiful.
The apple cider margaritas were a unique twist on the traditional lemonade and sweet tea served at weddings, and beautifully presented in large Mason jars.
Johnson Greenhouses provided a table display of some of their creative bouquets, including this one, bursting with color!
They also created all of the centerpieces for the event, which were stunning.
Tastebuds Popcorn served up a unique wedding favor with a twist on the traditional flavors you’d expect – fruit punch was one of the featured flavors at the event!
If popcorn isn’t your thing, take a look at the cute cupcakes from Maddy’s Fatty’s…
We also loved the candy bar option, created by Custom Event Creations.
I’ve never seen shimmer gumballs before! Kisten and West Hunter, the owners and operators of Hunting Creek Farms, greeted guests and offered tours of the property. We personally love the front porch and stone fireplace at the barn. The drama and detail are fantastic.
Guests hopped on the trolley tour for a ride around the property.
The tour ended with a view of the old farmhouse, located on the property. West told the crowd how they found that each of the beams was numbered with a Roman numeral, and how they found a perfectly preserved pair of toddler leather shoes in the attic when cleaning the house. It’s amazing what history lies within that house!
We also wanted to mention that Epic Events and Rachel Southerland Communications were key sponsors at the event and were a big part of helping things be a huge success!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our recap of the Statesville event and our visual tour through the day. Thank you to Hunting Creek Farms for inviting us to join them as they celebrated their open house.
