How to Have an Elegant Old Schoolhouse Wedding

old school house wedding

Sarrah and Dalton’s ultra-romantic day was anything but ordinary! The couple chose a unique venue, a former schoolhouse to host their intimate celebration in shades of navy blue hues and blush throughout the elegant styling.

From the groom's tearful first look reaction to the bride's form-fitting Pronovias gown ((stunning!)) you can definitely feel all the love and excitement between these two on their new adventure in life as captured by Foxtail Co. below and in the full gallery


Be sure to watch the video as well from Kevin Rist Productions. It is always great to see the weddings play out on film as well.

Old school venue

From Foxtail Co.: Sarrah and Dalton chose a perfectly intimate venue for their guests: The Annex at Brooklyn Arts Center in downtown Wilmington, NC, a former schoolhouse connected to a church. Sarrah and her bridal party got ready in a classroom that has been repurposed as a bridal suite! Sarrah wore a gorgeous Pronovias fitted gown with lace detailing and a stunning train while carrying a very special bouquet.

From the bride

Like most every bride, my bouquet was very special to me for many reasons. In June of this year we found out our dog, Oliver, had terminal cancer at the age of 5 and he passed away a little over a month before the wedding, so I had his dog tag pinned to the ribbon on my bouquet to remember him. I also had Dalton's great-grandmothers brooch attached to my bouquet and I wore my late grandmother's ring on my right hand.

Two of our friends surprised us with specialty "fishbowl" cocktails similar to the ones we usually get at Red Dogs in Wrightsville Beach. This was such a fun part of the night and we still can't believe this happened!
