Creating a ClassyUNC Tarheel-Inspired Wedding

From floral to menswear, we have you covered. Check out these beautiful images for more inspiration on a Tarheel-inspired wedding.

Tarheel-inspired Floral

I love this Carolina-blue bouquet from Imagine Flowers in Winston Salem, NC. Hydrangeas are a classic look, and when you choose Tarheel blue hydrangeas, you’ve got a Carolina classic in your hands!

Tarheel-Inspired Cake

This wedding cake and macarons by Tart Sweets in Winston Salem, NC is the perfect Tarheel-inspired cake. I love those sky-blue shades of blue in the intricate frosting design. Your guests will be humming “Carolina on My Mind” as they munch these sweet confections.

Tarheel-Inspired Groom

You don’t have to have Rameses present to create a Tarheel-vibe for your groom. While he could escort you down the aisle in fan-gear, I doubt thats how many of us want to remember our wedding day lol! Add some Tarheel-inspired touches to his wardrobe with a little Carolina-blue bowtie or a sweet Carolina-blue thistle boutonnière. These looks can be found at Cahill & Swain also in Winston Salem.
