Real Wedding: Taryn + Hugo at St. Mary's Chapel + Traine Raleigh

Where to even start with Taryn and Hugo!? This dynamic couple was truly a fantastic team! From the original meeting I absolutely loved Taryn! She was organized and knew exactly what she wanted. I have such a soft spot in my heart for any October weddings, and so this one I had to have. 

She had her ceremony at St. Mary's Chapel in downtown Raleigh. It was a stunning setting with an acoustic guitarist playing while the beautiful bride walked in. The ceremony had absolutely everyone in tears as it was really directed, and personalized to Taryn and Hugo! After the ceremony everyone headed over to Traine Raleigh where the cocktail hour and reception were held. We had the amazing Darnell from J Willis Entertainment keeping the music and energy up all night. The food was insanely delicious as Empire Eats had a family style meal that was sure to keep the guest talking about it for years to come. One of my most favorite times was hearing the toast, because you can always tell a little more about the bride and groom, and who they are before they met. From what I heard and saw, they could not be a more perfect match for each other! They both have so much love for their friends and family and care about them, which you could see in every detail. Once the beautiful cake was cut, the party didn't stop until it was time to go! I can't wait to see the exit photos, taken by the lovely Casey Rose Photography, since they were covered in bright and shiny silver streamers. 

Taryn and Hugo really were absolutely one of a kind, and I hope they had the best time on their Italian honeymoon! I wish them all the love and best in what this next chapter of their lives has to offer them.
