Autumns in North Carolina are usually mild and beautiful, Brad and Carolyn’s November wedding was a great example. With an outdoor Historic Market Hall wedding ceremony on the cobblestone street, like downtown Raleigh has never seen before. Followed by an unbelievable dinner and wedding reception. Brad and Carolyn’s wedding day could have not flowed any better All thanks to a great wedding planner, wedding vendors, and wedding guest.

Carolyn and her bridesmaids spread out their hair and makeup prep between at her apartment and then finishing at Market Hall. It’s always fun to watch the bride and bridesmaids interact with each other. Especially when the bride demands McDonalds french fries and a McFlurry. Kathy from A Shear Perfection Salon was great to work with! She worked on Carolyns makeup and hair quickly and with expertise.

Market Hall is a great venue for the bride and bridesmaids to be able to relax and have time to prepare for the big day.

Brad spent his wedding prep time with his groomsmen at the Marriott in downtown Raleigh. There are three big points to every grooms morning prep, ironing, drinks, and advice from the groomsmen. They were a really great group of guys to photography.

The First Look

Before the ceremony Brad and Carolyn wanted to talk to each other with out really seeing each other. We had to come up with a unique location for this first look so all the guest wouldn’t see Carolyn. They were able to have a quick conversation moments before the ceremony near one of the stair cases at Market Hall.

Historic Market Hall Wedding Ceremony

As I stated before, there could not have been a better autumn day. With all the guest seated on the cobblestone street, Carolyns dad escorted her down the aisle. The breeze carried Carolyns veil beautifully during the wedding ceremony. Two great moments during the ceremony were the officiant forgetting to do the ring exchange and the dropping of the wedding ring. In the end it was a great ceremony surrounded by family and friends.
