Jennifer + Brad 4.22.12

Jennifer and Brad were married on a cloudy Sunday afternoon in downtown Raleigh.  Most people think cloudy days make for dreary pictures, but it’s actually the opposite!  Photographers love cloudy days when taking outdoor pictures!  The overcast clouds provide the best light and your subjects don’t have squinty eyes!   okay, back to the wedding…  🙂 
Their beautifully simple ceremony (and reception) was held inside Caffe Luna.  Guests were welcomed into the light and airy restaurant to the sounds of a harp played by Brittany Makely of Sisters on the Harp.   She did an amazing job!
After the ceremony, guests were invited into the main dining area for the cocktail hour and reception.  The team at North Raleigh Florist did an amzing job pulling together Jennifer’s perfectly coordinated wedding colors and bringing her vision to life.   Jennifer had requested mainly peaches, ivory and soft greens for her floral pallete.  Which just-so-happend to blend perfectly with the restaurants decor!  It was wedding desity! 
Harrison Foster of Perfect Mix Productions kept the guests happy and entertained throughout the night – providing the perfect mix of classic dinner music followed by a play list that kept every dancing until the very last minute!
Cinda’s Creative Cakes knocked it out of the park again – Jennifer’s cake was stunning!  (and tasted amazing too!)
A HUGE “Thank You” to A.J. Dunlap Photography for sharing her amazing shots of the night.  You guys rock!

Hard to tell, but these cake pops are in the shape of a bowling pin a nod to where the love birds met.
