Providence Cotton Mill Wedding: Sydney and James


December 17, 2020

Sydney and James are married!! Since they’ve now celebrated one year of marriage, I thought it might be fun to share their beautiful Providence Cotton Mill wedding day! They planned a stunning autumn wedding day with the most incredible details. Sydney and James have such incredible style (which we already knew from their engagement session!) and it just made their day so special. With boho details all around us, Sydney and James tied the knot. I cannot wait for you to see this stunning day!

Providence Cotton Mill Wedding

With burnt orange florals and elegant details filling the space around Providence Mill, it felt like we were in a fall fairy tale! Sydney and James really followed the idea of a bohemian wedding day and I loved every single moment of it. I could have photographed their details all day! When I arrived, Sydney was getting ready with her girls and I just have to say, she looked beautiful!! Her hair and makeup were perfect – what a gorgeous look for her! Once she was all ready, she had a first look with her dad before meeting James. She and James had a super sweet first look. It’s easy to see how excited they were to be getting married!

We captured some portraits and finished their bridal party portraits, too, before it was time for their outdoor ceremony. They chose to have their ceremony on the patio of the Providence Cotton Mill and I loved the simple floral arrangement they used to decorate the spot they were saying I do. Sydney ad James had a hand fasting ceremony after their vows – they’re so romantic!! And then, once they were officially Mr. and Mrs., it was time for their newlywed portraits!! Honestly, this spot in Maiden NC is just beautiful and I truly think that their portraits are some of my all-time favorites! 

Wedding Reception at Providence Cotton Mill

Sydney and James ended their celebrations with a SUPER fun reception! They had a live band that ept everyone on the dance floor plus a mobile bar… and they even had signature drinks named after their pets. I mean, seriously?! So sweet!! And, just wait until you see their wedding cake! It’s STUNNING. And it was delicious, too! To go with the cakes, they had a variety of seasonal donuts and everything was amazing. It’s obvious that Sydney and James are loved by SO many people – and it’s easy to see why. They’re easy-going, wonderful people and just love those around them with all their hearts. To top it off, these two decided to do a charity donation instead of favors for their guests. What an amazing idea!

Sydney and James said goodbye to their guests with a bubble exit and Sydney had such a cool leather jacket to wear as she left. Congratulations, Sydney and James! I LOVED looking back at you beautiful bohemian Providence Cotton Mill wedding day from last fall. It’s truly stunning!!
