Downtown Raleigh weddingTrish and Brent’s downtown wedding bashCity Club Raleigh

Trish and Brent had a beautiful ceremony in the lobby of The City Club Raleigh, it was our first time photographing a ceremony in that part of the club and thanks to Lynn and the wonderful team at Fresh Affairs, it looked amazing, draped in lovely white fabric and adorned with gorgeous flower arrangements. Trish and her dad had the sweetest most touching father-daughter moment before they headed down the stairs for the ceremony, a few tears were shed but only in their happiest form. After the ceremony, the bride and groom were such great sports about trying an out of the box idea, which produced one of our all time fav photos (*they loved it so much, it was used as the image on the thank you cards!) It is so wonderful when our clients trust us, and our sometimes crazy vision. This was such a close group of family, friends, the maid of honor couldn’t hold back her all of her emotions during the first dance, while the bride’s sister gave such an unexpectedly candid and hilarious speech, it had the bride reaching for extra drinks. After a few more pictures and a stolen private moment or two, it was time to light the night up with a wave of sparkly exit fan fair.
