Cameron & Dannel were married in a perfectly elegant wedding ceremony in All Saints’ Chapel followed by a classy Downtown Raleigh reception at The Cardinal Club. Romantic elegance met city class when it came to this bride and groom’s big day!

Sweet Life Photography was there to capture every unforgettable moment of Cameron & Dannel’s wedding day.

Cameron chose lovely, classic touches for her dress and accessories such as the pearl brooch on her dress and her ivory peep-toe pumps.

The English Garden provided the florals.

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

All Saint’s Chapel is a gorgeous and timeless venue for wedding ceremonies. We added arrangements of baby’s breath and white rose petals to add a soft, romantic look.

An important thing to remember on your wedding day is to take a few moments to be alone as a couple and just take in the meaning and significance of your wedding day.

One of the best ways to save money when planning your wedding is to chose decor and florals that can be used at both your ceremony site as well as your reception site. for Cameron and Dannel’s big day we used these lovely baby’s breath arrangements at both All Saint’s Chapel and The Cardinal Club.

White pillar candles of varying heights, alongside a handful of rose petals are an affordable way to create lovely centerpieces.

Sweet Memories Bakery never fails to deliver cakes that are equal parts charming and delicious!

A simple color palette and dainty piping create a cake to perfectly compliment Cameron and Dannel’s elegant wedding day.

The Cardinal Club is located high above the streets of Downtown Raleigh, offering a breath-taking view of the nighttime Raleigh skyline. Plus this stunning staircase is the perfect place for bride and groom to steal a quick kiss before entering their elegant evening reception.

Both N.C. State alums, Cameron & Dannel wanted to include Howling Cow ice cream in their reception fare. What a perfectly sweet addition to a true Raleigh wedding!

Congratulations, Cameron & Dannel!

Sarah and Nick were married this past December in what could only be called a perfect wintry wedding. With a ceremony at Fairmont and a reception following at 1705 Prime, their Raleigh wedding was lovely from start to finish.

The bride’s delicate pumps with bows added a classic ladylike touch.


The English Garden did these gorgeous floral designs.

The junior bridesmaid carried this pomander style bouquet. Different from traditional bouquets, the pomander is a ball of flowers hanging from a decorative ribbon. This variation from traditional bouquets is also a great option for flower girls or other bridesmaids.


With the exception of the junior bridesmaid, the other three bridesmaids carried simple bouquets of baby’s breath which were perfectly complimented by their soft sage green dresses.

Fairmont United Methodist Church is a traditional wedding ceremony venue in the heart of Raleigh. Towards the end of the ceremony the guests were given candles to hold- a perfect touch for the a wedding in the holiday season.

What a fantastic vintage inspired shot from Sweet Life Photo.


The bride and groom chose to incorporate a “wishing tree” into their reception decor. This gorgeous tree, designed by The English Garden, was accompanied by little tags with which guests could write congratulations and wishes for the bride and groom.

And the little wish tags even featured the couple’s new last name initial.

Rocky Top Hospitality provided the delicious reception cuisine including mini pizza slices and BBQ biscuit sandwiches. As always Rocky Top did a spectacular job on the food…all the guests loved it!

We love Rocky Top Catering for Triangle Weddings! DJ Ken Holmes from Joe Bunn DJ Company kept the dance floor packed!

The delicious cakes were made by Cinda’s Creative Cakes.

The bride and groom also chose to show alma mater spirit with a delicious Wake Forest Deacon mascot cake and a Virginia Tech Hokies mascot cake. They looked almost too good to eat!

1705 Prime is a perfect Raleigh wedding reception venue with plenty of space for tables, mingling, buffets, a bar, and of course of dance floor!

1705 Prime is one classy southern wedding reception venue. It’s traditional on the outside, but contemporary on the inside.

Congratulations, Sarah & Nick!

Cathy and Greg were married this February in an elegant ceremony at Sacred Heart Cathedral followed by a reception at Cobblestone Hall in the heart of Downtown Raleigh. Cathy and Greg are such a wonderful couple. They were so much fun to work with!

Love the lace detailing and delicate buttons on Cathy’s dress- vintage elements meet modern dress silhouette.

The ladies got ready at the fabulous Renaissance Hotel at North Hills and even had time to enjoy a little champagne before hand.

These elegant florals were designed by Fleurtations.

What an exquisite aisle to walk down!

The knee length plum colored bridesmaids’ dresses were so chic. Now that’s the sort of dress a bridesmaid really will wear again!

The bride’s bouquet along with the bridesmaids’ bouquets can serve double duty as reception decor by placing them in vases. ┬áPlus this makes it easier to keep track of the bouquets in between dancing, eating, and greeting friends.

Floating candles in vases of varying sizes accented by flower petals makes for easy, elegant, romantic table decor.

The couple’s first dance.

Thank you Melissa Kay for these great images!!

Congratulations, Cathy & Greg!

xoxo, Erin

Corrine & Stephen were married early this February in a lovely ceremony at Fairmount United Methodist Church in the heart of Raleigh.

Melissa Kay of Melissa Kay Photography captured these beautiful images.

Gorgeous vintage touches on the bride’s shoes.

The groom is a fireman in Apex and the bride and groom chose to incorporate this important part of their lives into their big day by using a classic firetruck as their getaway car.


What a special moment between father and daughter.

Fairmont, only minutes from Downtown Raleigh, was a beautiful traditional venue for Corrine & Stephen’s ceremony.

Now that’s an exit in style!


The groom’s uncle did all the floral arrangements, including bouquets and centerpieces, as a special wedding gift for the bride and groom. Red can be a strong color, so these gorgeous white lilies add a softening effect.

Sweet Memories Bakery created the delicious cake. And our couple chose bride and groom inspired edible favors for the guests.

Vases filled with cherry cordial M&Ms served as edible centerpieces that incorporated the couple’s signature red color scheme and made for a fun table treat the guests loved!


Corrine & Stephen opted for a sweetheart table for just the two of them to enjoy their meal during the reception. This is a great way for the couple to share a few moments together just the two of them.

Congratulations, Stephen & Corrine!
