Holly and Dan - A Carolina Blue Country Club Wedding

Holly and Dan's wedding took place at the picturesque Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club on Valentine's Day - a perfect occasion to celebrate love and the union of two people and two families. The couple combined classic and elegant details with a traditional Jewish ceremony and a color scheme inspired by the groom's college, UNC.
