I had the pleasure of working with Megan and George for their wedding at the gorgeous Cardinal Club in downtown Raleigh. It was a Black and White Wedding with Yellow accents, such a classic style.

I want to thank the fabulously talented Martha Manning from Martha Manning Photography. Martha is so talented and so much fun to work with, I love her!

Megan’s dress was by far one of my favorite dresses ever! Don’t even get me started on her shoes, amazing!

The guys relaxed before the wedding with some cards.

The ceremony was held at the Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, in their new chapel. What a great space, the lighting was breathtaking!

The food was served family style, so much fun for all the guests, they LOVED it!

The Wally West band was so much fun!!

The Cupcake Shoppe Bakery made these delicious cupcakes, mmmm good 🙂

I love this moment that Martha captured.

Megan changed into this fantastic dress!

I loved working with Jill and TJ for thier elegant Pinehurst Wedding. The wedding ceremony took place at Village Chapel. The AMAZINGLY talented and fabulous f8 Photo Studios took these images. If you haven’t booked them for your wedding yet, you must give them a call!

The bride’s makeup was done by the super talented Michelle Bowab with Makeup by Michelle.

How gorgeous are these roses? Aldena Frye Floral Design in Aberdeen provided these breathtaking flowers and centerpieces at the reception. The roses are Sahara roses, amazing!

This cake was one of the most gorgeous cakes I have ever seen. The cake was strawberry rhubarb flavored. YUM!

For the seating we combined round tables and long tables for 12. This is a fabulous way to add dimension and depth to your room.
