Alex and Marcus were married at the beautiful Umstead Hotel in March! Their day was full of love, and we are very excited to share it with you. It was the perfect spring morning as Alex and her girls got ready in her suite overlooking the ceremony lawn. When it came time to put on her wedding gown, Alex’s mom was right there to help her so that Alex wowed her attendants and even left her dad speechless when he was finally able see her! On the other side of the hotel, Marcus and his guys were looking handsome in their dapper suits. Alex (and her mom) surprised the guys by asking the talented and creative Michelle with Embellished Blooms to use shell casings for their boutonnières…a very unique touch!
As the sun set behind the hotel, Alex and Marcus exchanged rings, shared their vows, and were officially married! Guests were welcomed into the reception space with luscious floral garland flowing down the tables and tons of candlelight. After they all enjoyed a delicious dinner, Eric with All Around Raleigh DJ made sure they were on the dance floor the rest of the night! Of course, a little surprise confetti sprinkling the dance floor helped too ;).
It was a wonderful night celebrating Alex and Marcus and we are so thankful we were able to be part of their day! Congratulations to our lovely couple!
Marcus is a hunter so his feather bowtie and shotgun shell boutonniere were perfect!
