Clean, Sleek, Modern, these are all words that wonderfully describe modern art museums which house awe inspiring contemporary works of art. From time to time these elegantly modern spaces pull double duty, playing host to beautiful wedding soirees as well. One might think that with such sleek surroundings it would be difficult to pull off a day with personality & charm, but nothing could be further from the truth as exemplified by Tracy Russell & Colin Beck's personality plus wedding at CAM Raleigh! Seeking something modern & fresh but uniquely Raleigh, Tracy & Colin embraced clean lines, a fresh color palette & cleverly surrounded themselves with amazing art on their big day. Embracing the world around them, guests were invited to Instagram the wedding, #CTBWedding, as well the terrific gift of Tracy's sister, and maid of honor, joining them via Facetime while stationed overseas. Not missing a minute, her sister wished Tracy well moments before heading down the aisle herself, a la the beauty of modern technology in the form of an iPad! The couple said 'I do' in the museum's outdoor garden, shaded under the flying V roof, after which guests were treated to shows of art while surrounded by chevron as far as the eye could see in pops of coral & gray. Every element chosen was perfectly modern, complimenting the open air space of the gallery setting. Never a moment was wasted without a show of love, laughter, giddy & play. Wanting nothing more then to end things on a bright note, giant sparklers were set a blaze, sending Tracy & Colin into their new life under a sparkler lite canopy!

There is something so magical & captivating to me about Indian weddings. I think they appeal to the little kid in me with all of the wonder in bright colors & shiny pieces, like a brilliant peacock on display! Danielle Carr & Ravi Jarecha celebrated their instant love with one another by blending their two worlds into one. Their ceremony, focusing on traditional Indian rituals, is beautiful & equally as captivating as the bright colors! From the beautiful long floral leis, the binding of the couple by loose rope, even the burning of materials, each is wondrously intriguing and beautiful. Their bridal fashions, again traditional style, are stunning and both looking completely amazing & beautifully put together. Danielle is an utter vision & a stunningly beautiful bride, dont you think?! While traditions are certainly the first order of business, what I love the most is the breeze, ease, & joy which Danielle & Ravi clearly take in the others presence. This wedding is beautifully done, heartfelt & filled with joy!

There is so much to love about this beautifully glamorous wedding which ever so harmoniously blends a few different themes & design aspects into one! Lauren Coalson Hardy & Chris Hardy are two very stylish, design loving folks, so it was only natural that a wedding with high design elements would do. Enter the design whiz Juli Vaughn who ever so brilliantly blended together a rustic industrial feel with a soft feminine peach inspired color palette & various mixed elements which kept each table fresh & inspired. From the unconventional florals to the completely adorable animal escort cards, its hard to escape an overall organic feel which only adds to this beautiful farmhouse fete. Atlanta wedding photographer Jason Hales Photography, perfectly captured each and every detail as well as all the lovely little moments between Lauren & Chris, making this sweet southern stunner one of my top all time favorites!
