After nearly two hundred years of standing as a historical icon in Hillsborough, The Colonial Inn has opened its door to serve as a premier event space in downtown Historic Hillsborough – and yours truly had the pleasure of participating in the first photo shoot at the inn! This historic venue will bea 28-room boutique hotel with a space for events and a bar open to the public. I was so happy to have a Sugar Euphoria wedding cake in Hillsborough for this autumn/winter themed shoot.
Morgan Caddell did an amazing capturing the beauty of the Colonial Inn, the beauty of the design elements, and the vibrant colors of the florals.
We partnered with Harmony Events to highlight the historic beauty of this home. The rock star team from Harmony Events set up several different sites throughout the venue: from ceremony to reception, to portrait taking. Each location was visually stunning and so unique. And they even arranged for three diverse couples to model the joy of a wedding day at the site.
How gorgeous is this invitation suite from Em Paper Co.? I absolutely love the depth of the colors.
For our cake, we wanted something that was both striking yet feminine, dramatic yet whimsical. The outcome was like something out of a Disney film. The all-black cake (a bold choice!) with floral bas relief was draped in greenery and red roses that paid homage to this venue’s fairytale-esque qualities. We hope that this photoshoot and our cake captured the absolute magic The Colonial Inn would bring to any couple’s wedding day!
