Ann Marie and Mark

Ann Marie and Mark were married in October in downtown Raleigh. Ann Marie and I worked together for a long time and I truly found her to be so delightful! She is always laughing and you always want to be around her! Plus her sense of style is fabulous! Unfortunately, I was horribly sick the week of the wedding, but I wouldn’t miss her big day for anything, so I loaded up on vitamin C and water and enjoyed every second of her gorgeous wedding!

As always we had wonderful vendors for her event. The ceremony took place at Sacred Heart and the reception was at Sitti (if you live in Raleigh, you might be living under a rock if you haven’t been here, delicious!). The florals were created by the always amazing Lyn and Michael at Fresh Affairs. All of our rentals were from Classic Party Rentals, who went above and beyond in creating a beautiful tent in the courtyard at Sitti. The amazing lighting and sound was provided by Bunn DJ Company, the reception looked GORGEOUS, thanks to their lights! Last but not least, the stunning photos were taken by Christobal Perez with Azul Photography, who documented their whole day in amazing detail. He is one wedding photographer truly has a gift for what he does! Enjoy the details below!

The bouquets were gorgeous, they were filled with ranunculus and lambs ear, two of my fav’s!

Their wedding took place during the Bailey’s big scavenger hunt for a $20,000 diamond ring, and of course, the historic church was a stop on the hunt for the ring, so we spent a good amount of time deflecting scavengers!

It was raining at bit after the ceremony, so Christobal got creative and did the portraits in some fun locations and they turned out beautifully!

Isn’t she gorgeous?

They were just plain silly!

We lined the communal table at Sitti with composites of colorful florals and candles, gorgeous!

The tent in the courtyard at Sitti. It was draped with red fabric and chinese lanterns, and the tables were filled with floating candles. It was stunning!

Instead of the traditional sparklers, bubbles or rose petals, we decided to print love in different languages on signs for the couple to run through. It was such a fun idea and my new fav!
Congrats Mark and Ann Marie, I am so thankful to have been a part of your special day, best wishes!
