Nestled in the heart of downtown Raleigh’s Moore Square District lies Market Hall, the charming and historic venue where Brittnie and Allen said “I do.” The cobblestone streets and romantic glow from the lights of City Market gave the wedding an intimate, endearing feel.
Brittnie wore a gorgeous satin gown with intricate embellished overlay. Her lengthy train had beautiful lace detail, which added to the classic feel. Allen looked handsome in a blue suit with a soft blush tie that complemented the bridesmaids blush gowns perfectly. His boutonniere, an ivory bloom, accentuated the bountiful white and ivory blooms interspersed with greenery in Brittnie’s bouquet.
For the ceremony, the rustic wooden wall was illuminated with hanging market lights and decorated with an abundance of fresh greenery. Tall white candles and floating tea lights were arranged on either side of the altar, creating a romantic, ethereal look. Brittnie and Allen looked almost as if they were in a rustic enchanted forest as they said their “I do’s”!
With an altar that gorgeous, why only use it for the ceremony? For the reception, a small round table was placed at the altar for the newlyweds. The wedding party was seated at tables neighboring Brittnie and Allen, making the reception even more intimate. The tables were dressed in white linens and topped with fresh greenery, small white candles, floating tea lights, and navy napkins.
After enjoying a delightful dinner catered by Market Hall, dancing the night away, and celebrating with friends and family, it was time for Brittnie and Allen to leave their loved ones to embark on forever. The newlyweds rode away down the cobblestone street in a classic red carriage with a strand of greenery draped across the back along with a “Just Married!” sign. Cheers to Brittnie and Allen!
