Jamie & Stephen are two of the coolest people I have ever met. Seriously! We did their engagement session in Downtown Raleigh and it was amazing. We walked around to a coffee shop then ended on the parking deck with the Raleigh Skyline in the background. Oh, and not to mention their ridiculously awesome proposal at one of the 7 wonders in the world! Stephen is one of the most genuine guys I know and the way that he looks at Jamie gives us “all the heart eyes” (thats what people say right)! Their love was extremely infectious and was a joy to see. Jamie is one of the kindest laid back ladies we have ever met! She was calm and cool on her wedding day and let me tell you, that made things AWESOME! We didn’t worry about a thing and the day ran so smooth! To say that these two are good for each other is an understatement, they are perfect for each other and an amazing couple! They also had some SERIOUS SWAG! She rocked black wedding shoes with her beautiful dress (that she bought the week of the wedding) and a floral crown. He made a navy blue and black suit, contrary to popular belief and it was amazing!
Here is his proposal, I mean come on!
The Bay 7 American Tobacco Campus Wedding Ceremony
This ceremony was awesome! Bay 7 is a former 10,000 square foot tobacco warehouse and it looks pristine! 100 year old brick and wood, along with panoramic windows that line the balcony above the location make it absolutely beautiful. It even had a gorgeous metallic wall where the ceremony took place. There were hanging lights draping over top of the ceremony and a beautiful lit up heart right above the stairs! It sits around 400 people but this was a beautiful intimate ceremony with a little over 100. It felt perfect in every way. The ceremony was quick but perfect.The light came in beautifully and the heart behind them was a perfect reminder of what it was all about. The love that they shared and will continue to build on forever! It ended with a bang as they walked out hand in hand, celebrating as husband and wife!
The Bay 7 American Tobacco Campus Wedding Reception
After the wedding we walked all around the American tobacco campus and there are some really cool spot. There is a lunch mural that we did most of our bride and groom portraits and it had the most beautiful light! The light plus this amazing couple made for some amazing portraits. I mean seriously, some of our absolute favorites! We made our way back inside to Bay 7 and danced the night away! It was set up beautifully and the vendors did an incredible job, but I will talk about them soon! Jamie & Stephen had all of their guests take polaroids, shake em, write on em and then stick them in a guestbook. It was awesome and a great idea! We LOVED IT!
The Wedding vendors
We are so thankful to have been able tow work with some of the best vendors in Raleigh and North Carolina! Ashley Cakes provided beautiful, simplistic cake that was delicious! The catering, provided by the Angus Barn was some of the best food we have had! The steak was amazing! The florals were some of the best we have ever seen! From her floral crown to her amazing bouquet and Simply Elegant Floral Designs KILLED it and we would suggest them to everyone! The band, don’t get me started on them! They blew us away. They were genuinely nice guys and could play! Six Stylez from Sam Hill bands brought the house down! And of course, us from Anchor & Veil Photography provided the levely images of these two, but lets be honest, they made it easy!
