When Whitney Phillips turned 16, she started working at her aunt’s wedding stationery store in Cornelius, now Note + Nest. She immediately developed a passion for wedding planning and began tucking away ideas for her own future wedding. When she said “yes” to boyfriend Corey Abbott during a romantic Asheville getaway, the wedding planning was officially on and they chose Morning Glory Farms in Monroe, NC for the celebration.
“I have always envisioned a very natural, outdoor wedding” Whitney says. “With the help of our family, we hand-made 230 wooden chargers for our table settings and collected various lanterns and antiques for our displays. We even converted a canoe into a cooler for our bar area and I hand painted a ‘sail’ with our drink menu on it!”
The color scheme consisted of very natural and neutral colors, and the bridesmaids donned dark blue frocks. “Our wedding was everything that I had dreamed of since I was a little girl,” says Whitney. “My most memorable moment from my wedding day is when Corey and I went out into the pastures after the ceremony to take pictures with the Angus cows!,” Whitney says. “I’m a farm girl at heart and I absolutely love cows! Even though it only lasted twenty minutes, it was such a nice and peaceful time for the two of us.”
The celebration continued at the reception where the guests enjoyed dancing and the Texas two-step and eating donuts, which were “the biggest hit on the reception table.” -CB
