Real NC Wedding : Darryl & Adeola By Vesic Photography at Real Downtown Raleigh Wedding
We always love it when a story comes full circle, especially when so many of our amazing event partners are involved. This week, we are so excited that our #weddingwednesday feature is about a couple that we have already gotten to know and love – Earlier this year, we shared Darryl + Adeola’s Downtown Raleigh Engagement Session, and today we get to share their gorgeous Real Downtown Raleigh Wedding with you, courtesy of Vesic Photography.
Hooman of Vesic Photography is known for his “party pictures,” because he never holds back and jumps right into the best action of the night, to capture the most fun and candid moments – and in the case of Daryll and Adeola’s Downtown Raleigh Wedding celebration there was lots of action! This crowd knows how to party! (Note: the tossing around of money is actually a Nigerian tradition to wish the couple prosperity in their new life together! So cool!)
Similar to Indian Weddings, Nigerian Weddings span two days with the first night of celebration at the always amazing Stockroom at 230. The night was bright, colorful and festive, with guests dressed in traditional Nigerian attire.
Day two, which holds the ceremony and reception, was hosted at the elegant Downtown Raleigh Marriott City Center. Carly of La Fete Weddings and Events coordinated the evening, which also featured linens from CE Rentals, lounge furniture from ThemeWorks, and a photobooth by Shutterbooth.
The ceremony was held underneath an arrangement of gorgeous pom-poms made of red roses and crystals, created by the amazing Ruth Payne of Fleuressence. Ruth, a WM vendor, also created the towering tabletop arrangements and the bride’s lush bouquet.
Along with Adeola’s incredible custom gown, the show-stopper of the evening was the magnificent five tier wedding cake by Weddings Mag event partner Cakes by Chloe. The stunning cake featured gold and white details topped with a beautiful gold flower pom-pom.
Gorgeous and opulent, this wedding was strikingly modern with the perfect touch of honored tradition and lively fun. Our favorite shots, however, are the quiet tender moments that Hooman captured of the happy couple, right after they exchanged their vows. Congratulations Darryl and Adeola!!
Love the Look:
