jessica + josh // wedding . raleigh nc

We knew Jessica & Josh were going to be an amazing couple to work with once we shot their [ engagement session ] in downtown Raleigh last summer, but the more we got to know them the more we realized what a truly special couple they are. I think Jessica & Josh have to be two of the sweetest, most genuine people we have had the pleasure of working with thus far - plus, they are gorgeous, have amazing taste, & are SO in love! We are so glad we got to be a part of their big, beautiful, happy day!

Now for a huuuuge post of images! :)



Their sweet first look in the [ Raleigh Rose Garden ]:






Jessica & Josh planned the day so that we had lots of time both before & after the ceremony for photos of the wedding party, family, & bride & groom - always so nice when we don't have to rush through the portraits!



Our favorite! Love these rows of beautiful trees in the gardens.



The grand entrance into the reception at [ Cobblestone Hall ]:




Jessica & Josh worked with a great set of vendors, including [ Premiere Catering ] who did an absolutely phenomenal job on the food. The stations were themed around foods of different regions - lobster salad on a brioche bun with a cup of clam chowder for the North, pulled pork & slaw over jalapeno corn cakes in homage to the South, & the East with a huge array of sushi, dim sum, & stir fry. They even had a late night snack of ahi tuna burgers & mini milkshakes as a nod to the West coast. So cute & the food was amazing!


Loved the idea of his & hers cocktails - skinny margaritas & ginger mint juleps!


The beautiful cake by [ Cinda's Creative Cakes ]:



They even had a costume photo booth set up by [ Celebration PhotoBooth ] - so fun!


And last but not least, [ Hipshack ] kept the party going with an awesome live performance.




Jessica & Josh - we can't thank you enough!
