Heidi + Jason

Fall is our absolute favorite season. Maybe it is because October is our birthday month but something about autumn weddings are just magical and this wedding is no exception.

Jason and Heidi’s wedding at the Angus Barn Pavilions was full of beautiful details, fall colors and a whole lotta love! Take a look at the amazing photos from Amy Allen Photography below and let us know what you think!

Congrats Heidi and Jason! You were a joy to work with and we loved being a part of your special day!

Molly + Will

This was such a special wedding for us because Molly happens to be the sister of one of our past brides, and we just adored working with their family! They are simply the sweetest, and it was such a joy to be a part of both the “W” girls big days.

Molly and Will went with a traditional morning wedding at the beautiful Christ Church in #downtownraleigh and a reception at the Carolina Country Club #CCC. Molly chose a stunning two piece dress with a full skirt that complimented her tiny frame while the boys wore classic English morning jackets. Mel Day did an amazing job with the florals, mostly green with just a few hints of white.

And y’all their exit was epic. Will’s twin brother and some other family members and friends dressed in Broughton High School #broughton marching band outfits and serenaded them with the marching band instruments and they were so GOOD! And lastly, they rode away in a #raleighrickshaw by a cousin dressed as a bunny #icantmakethisup. It was classic, traditional, summer and so much FUN!

A little sneak peek!

October 8, 2016 will be remembered for a long time in North Carolina all thanks to a Hurricane called Matthew. The damage done across the state is heartbreaking and our thoughts and prayers are with those affected.

The weather that day was far from perfect but we think these photos by Julia Laible Photography couldn’t be more beautiful. Our amazing couple, Katy and Cameron, were such troopers! It was the worst weather possible and they had the best attitude about their big day. Unfortunately, the electricity was going out all over the city and the church was no exception. As Katy made it down the aisle the lights went out, but that didn’t stop them from getting married!

It was certainly a struggle to make their big day come together in the midst of a hurricane but we did it and this will go down as one of our favorite weddings.

The resilience of Katy and Cameron and their ability to laugh it all off, the love of their friends and family who didn’t let a hurricane stop them from celebrating, and our amazing team of vendors made for one epic wedding. Take a look at the photos below and be sure to check back at Julia Laible Photography for the whole lot real soon!

Annika + Brandon

Annika and Brandon’s mid- June wedding at the Merrimon-Wynne house was styled perfection. Annika was one of the most beautiful brides we’ve ever seen and the lace detail on the back of her gown was to die for. The Merrimon-Wynne House is such a gem in the heart of downtown Raleigh serving as the perfect venue for this summer soiree.

Magnolia’s are in our top three of flowers for their timeless beauty and southern roots. In fact we think historic homes and magnolia leaves are always a good idea!

Nothing like a vintage heirloom to get our heart aflutter.

When planning an outdoor ceremony simplicity is key. Chairs and an elegant arbor are all you need to set the space; and for an outdoor wedding we love programs that double as fans.

Seriously still swooning over this dress! Annika and Brandon we wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter. Thank you for choosing us for your most special day!

Jenna and Rossi’s downtown wedding was what a summer wedding should be. With a navy blue and pink color scheme this wedding  was traditional, sweet, and filled with perfect little details. Add in some great photographers, thank you for sharing Jocelyn and Ryan Photography!, and we are smitten. Thanks for stopping by and we hope you love this wedding as much as we did.

St. Mary’s Chapel is a beautiful quaint chapel on the campus of St. Mary’s School. It is often overlooked but a great ceremony venue option for those wishing to be downtown.

Lastly, who doesn’t love a great getaway car! Rossi’s Dad hooked them up for their send-off.

 

A big thank you as always to the amazing vendors who made this all possible.

Wedding Tips
2016-02-21TheWEDTour-019

1. First things first. Get a grip on the approximate number of guests you’ll invite before settling on a venue. This will ensure there’s ample space for your crew. Next, find your venue before your date. This will ensure you aren’t losing your dream venue because their already booked on your date.

2. Do a dress rehearsal. Practice getting dressed in your gown and accessories to make sure it all flows and you aren’t missing that finishing touch. You’ll also want to make sure you and your maid of honor can get you in and out of your dress and that she or your Mother is able to bustle the dress for the big day.

3. Start researching and booking your vendors as soon as possible. It’s amazing how quickly vendors and venues book up. Not to mention, your will have more options to choose from and it will be less stressful knowing your vendors are secured as you get closer to your big day. Feeling overwhelmed we can help!

4. Feed your vendors. Vendors are people too and many of them are working long and hard hours to make your event flawless so why not give them some nourishment. Most venues or caterers will provide a “vendor meal” at a lower rate so make sure to account for all vendors when finalizing your food selections.

5. Stationary is a must. It’s not so important where you get your stationary (although we can help!) whether online or locally but you’ll need to consider; save the dates, bridal shower invitations, thank you stationary, bachelor/bachelorette invites, wedding invitations, new Mr. and Mrs. thank you stationary, etc. That is a lot of paper so make sure to find something that works well with your wedding and always proofread every bit of it!

6. Prioritize! Figure out what is important to you and your fiancé and go from there. Splurge where you choose and be flexible on the rest-it is a process but it will all fall into place.

Elizabeth + Ken

 

This is the wedding of two sweethearts who have been dating for a really long time. Elizabeth and Ken couldn’t wait to celebrate their forever with their family and friends at Brier Creek County Club. Infused with her Czechoslovakian heritage; this wedding was super sweet, colorful and full of surprises. Our beautiful bride Elizabeth donned a traditional folk dress for a dance with her Dad while Ken surprised his bride by getting up on stage and rocking out with the band. Oh, and did we mention the band was amazing!? Elizabeth and Ken chose their favorite band Sirsy to play at the reception and it made for an amazing party. A big thank you to Jennifer Haywood for sharing the photos!

Jessica + Kevin

Jessica and Kevin’s downtown Stockroom at 230 wedding was so sweet and filled with fabulous little details. Their adorable dog Ollie was the ring bearer and was so handsome in his tie. Jessica’s delicate lace dress perfectly juxtaposed the exposed brick walls and industrial details of The Stockroom at 230. With our talented team of vendors this was one stylish wedding.
