Real NC Wedding : Colorful October Wedding At The Marbles Kids Museum
Sean and Tori came to Orangerie Events by way of Brett and Jessica. We coordinated Brett and Jessica’s wedding in October 2010 ( seen here ).
Sean and Tori are friends with Brett and Jessica and were married in October 2011. Brett and Jessica are wedding photographerswho photographed Sean and Tori’s wedding. Orangerie Events coordinated Sean and Tori’s wedding and we’re crossing our legs like we have to pee and jumping up and down to show you what happens when good friends attend a wedding as great photographers. Make sense?
Describing Sean and Tori in one word is easy: infectious. Tori has a shy smile that makes you blush and a bursting smile that captivates you. Sean is a total cool cat with a knack for tasty beers (Pun completely intended: He owns Tasty Beverage Companyin downtown Raleigh) and giving well-deserved thumbs up. To work with them was like putting a quarter into a slot and getting the best, most colorful bouncy ball a vending machine can offer.
I love collaborating with couples that combine splashes of classic style (Hello birdcage veil!) with modern. Sean and Tori picked theVisual Art Exchange in Raleigh to host their ceremony and continued the wedding festivities at the Marbles Kids Museum for an anything but boring wedding reception. Rocky Top Catering kept mouths chewing and bellies full by providing a delicious assortment of food. Fallon’s Flowers provided the stunning bouquets and arrangements while The Square Rabbit created a beautiful and tasty wedding cake. Guests danced the night away while DJ Yes Sputnik! kept the jams spinning. As a take away, Sean and Tori included an Old Time Photo Booth for guests to enjoy throughout the evening. A huge thank you to Sharon and Kate of Orangerie Events who coordinated the ceremony and reception the day of to keep things moving smoothly.
From the moment Tori showed me her invitations, I smiled every time we talked about her wedding. The custom design was created by Jaime Van Wart and was carried throughout the invitations to the table numbers to the wedding website. Which, by the way, their wedding website sprinkled colorful confetti the day of the wedding in celebration. The wedding was a perfect representation of them as a couple. It was like stepping into a box of crayons and leaving with a smile plastered on your face.
LOVE THE LOOK:
