Mary Cameron and Brian’s State Club Wedding!

Mary Cameron and Brian got married this past June at The State Club, located on North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus in Raleigh.  Their wedding was an absolute blast, and we’re excited to share the details with you!

Both Mary Cameron and Brian lived out of town, so through the planning process we worked closely with Mary Cameron’s mother.  We had a great time with her!  She was so sweet and easy to work with and all she wanted was for Mary Cameron and Brian to have the perfect day.  Despite the day starting and ending with rain, it did turn out to be perfect and the rain didn’t stop the guests (or the wedding party) from having a fantastic time!

 

The ceremony was held outside under a tent (yes, we managed to stay dry!) and was followed by dinner and dancing.  We used stations for this reception, as well as an open seating plan to create a cocktail party atmosphere. Their guests absolutely loved it!  After Mary Cameron and Brian’s first dance, Shakedown Band got the party started and the dance floor was immediately packed!  They were amazing!  Our favorite part of the evening was when Brian and Mary Cameron made their way on stage to join the band. Brian sang and Mary Cameron played the drums!

 

Congratulations again to Mary Cameron and Brian, and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!  Thank you Renee for the beautiful images!
