“We want a relaxing atmosphere to keep things simple and celebrate with our favorite people” is what Erin and Joe told me when we first met regarding their vision for their wedding day! And I do believe that is exactly what they accomplished! Erin spent the morning of her wedding day in the comfort of her home with her girls and her pup glamming up to meet her groom in the gardens to say “I DO”.
Erin and Joe arrived at The JC Raulston Arboretum to make their way to the Rose Gardens where their ceremony would take place. They decided not to do a First Look photo session before their ceremony which led to the most emotional and heartfelt first look photos during the ceremony. Wait until you see the sweet groom’s face.
The weather called for rain on their wedding day. A few sprinkles made an appearance, but just as Erin was about to make her way down the aisle, the sun came out. It was such a magical moment.
The gardens throughout the Arboretum were the perfect backdrop for all the photo moments.
Guests made their way right down the street to The Raleigh Brewing Company to continue the celebration. A few personal touches were on display throughout the Brewery, but Erin and Joe envisioned keeping the setting true to its original intent. Guests enjoyed on tap local beers, a delicious buffet, and lots of dancing throughout the night. They also surprised their guests with Dusty Donuts food truck that came right up to the venue bringing in freshly made donuts for everyone.
The rain that was in the forecast did make its appearance later in the evening but guests were comfortably inside enjoying the evening. Erin and Joe decided to take advantage of a photo opportunity and had a magical photoshoot in the rain.
Erin and Joe’s wedding day was exactly what they wanted. It was filled with so much love, simplicity, and celebration with their family and friends.
