Real Wedding: Zack & Tara – Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley
Zack and Tara are the epitome of what we all think of when it comes to newlyweds. What we like to refer to as “cake toppers”, if you will, these two love birds exchanged vows among family and friends at Christ Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. Tara, jaw-droopingly gorgeous in a sweetheart gown complete with silver sash and Zack, utterly handsome in a classic black and white tux.
Flowers ranged from Tara’s stunning blue and white bouquet, with sprigs of fresh greenery to the simple, yet striking centerpieces made of cream hydrangeas. Bridesmaids wore eye catching blue, floor length, flowing gowns and carried arrangements of soft creams and pale pink blooms.
The church was adorned with fresh evergreen wreaths and garland accented with Victorian bows. Oversized arrangements were placed throughout the church, creating a soft, wedding-like atmosphere.
Following the touching ceremony, guests were ushered into the Raleigh Marriott at Crabtree Valley for a reception filled with dining and dancing – and personalized cakes! (from Edible Art). A modern mixture of Victorian embellishments such as fruitful centerpieces met classic black and white settings. At the end of the night, the elated couple twirled their way through a tunnel of bubbles (compliments of their guests) as they took their first steps into forever as husband and wife.
