Modern + Chic Travel Inspired Wedding

There’s no place like home, but that didn’t stop Tory and Will from bringing back a little tropical Asian flair to their beautiful Wilmington, North Carolina, wedding at St. Andrews On-the-Sound. Living in Hong Kong while they planned the event, the couple incorporated plenty of Asian-inspired elements–orchids, palm leaves, seagrass fans, and silk fabric from Thailand–to mingle with a traditional Southern menu. Lush flowers from Salt Harbor Designs, including white garden roses, white parrot tulips, and purple callas all tied with twine, brought a casual touch to the standout exotic blooms. The star of the reception decor–yellow tulip chandeliers with hanging lights–”received more compliments than my wedding dress,” says Tory. Will brought down the house at the Cameron Art Museum reception with a rendition of Springsteen’s “Born to Run,” symbolic of the couple’s world travels.
