Downtown Raleigh Wedding

City of Raleigh
Humble Pie


Chris + Sara

We had the pleasure of shooting Sara + Chris’s Raleigh themed wedding this past weekend and it was a blast!  Raleigh is a sentimental place for them both so it was only appropriate to have their wedding right in the heart of the city.  They chose the City of Raleigh Museum for their ceremony.   It’s a gorgeous historical building with old wooden floors and tin ceiling, just stunning!  Sara is a DIY bride and made all the decorations herself and even did the flower arrangements as well (she used to be a florist, whaaat!).  She picked some colorful summer blooms from the Raleigh Farmer’s Market and made all the floral details.  And can we talk about their Star Wars pic + quote on the back of their invitation, love it!  They said their vows in front of their closest friends and family in a beautiful ceremony.  After a few quick portraits on the crosswalk, we for sure had to get the capitol building in there, we hopped on the Raleigh Trolley and over to Humble Pie for the party.  

Well Humble Pie didn’t disappoint.  It was the perfect fun intimate reception!  They stuffed us full of delicious food and let’s not forget the pie.  Jared and I were almost trampled by the kids hitting the pie bar, but after I had a slice I understood.  Joe from Elite DJ Solutions got the party going and everyone brought out their best dance moves.  Seriously some of these kids were killing it on the dance floor!  Chris + Sara danced the night away with friends and family under the twinkle lights.

Chris + Sara – Thank you for letting us be a part of your story, we wish you all the best in your marriage!
