Real NC Wedding : Rachel & Adam From Orangerie Events
I met sweet Rachel to talk about all things wedding six months before her big day. She was a breath of fresh air. Throughout the entire process, I could always count on her to be cool, calm, collected and smiling.
She and her Australian beau were married at Mordecai Historic Park in Raleigh on a gorgeous September Sunday. The outdoor ceremony took place at Mordecai with the grape vines as a perfect backdrop. Gregg, with Brides & Bouquets, added flowers in various shades of purple to compliment the setting. The ceremony was flawlessly performed by Rev. Roy and two four-legged members of the wedding party almost stole the show. Almost. The reception was held at Humble Pie in downtown Raleigh. Following introductions, the couple shared their first dance as DJ Brian O’Toole provided the soundtrack for the entire evening. The restaurant provided an amazing buffet spread highlighted by phenomenal service. Throughout the reception, guests were able to be a little silly at the photo booth provided by Hice Photography. Simply Cakes NC showcased their talent in the form of a square 3-tier wedding cake complete with intricate detail, pintuck and a touch of purple. And yes, it tasted as good as it looks.
Once the dancing began, the seemingly shy and reserved Rachel took center stage with an inflatable guitar for a solo performance to Journey. Capturing this unforgettable moment and every other detail was the dynamic duo of A.J. Dunlap Photography. Seriously? How incredible are these photos? I love working with AJ and Kyle! Rachel and Adam spent two weeks following the wedding in Australia for a continued celebration with the groom’s family. I’m slightly jealous. If any couple deserved an extended vacation, it would definitely be these two. Their positivity for life and love for each other was infectious and I’m grateful to have shared in their wedding day.
