Welcome to North Carolina residents Caleb Smith and Courtney Sweetser's magical winter wedding at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens

North Carolina residents Caleb Smith and Courtney Sweetser pulled in nearly 10,000 votes to win a magical $50,000 winter wedding at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens this year. We loved partnering on the giveaway and invite you to this peek of their stunning day. Cindy Zingerella of Engaging Events crafted an open-air celebration that married rustic and elegant elements together in seamless fashion for the outdoor-loving duo. Our favorite touch? She tucked turkey feathers (from one of their hunting escapades) into bouquets and boutonnieres. The Smiths found out about the contest via our cover; think you might be the next lucky winner?
