The 2016 season kicked off in style with the intimate and classy wedding of Jackie and Rob at St. Mary’s Chapel in downtown Raleigh with reception at the fabulous Mandolin restaurant in the nearby Five Points district. From the preparations at The Umstead, through to the after-party at Noir Lounge, it was a really great way to get 2016 rolling.
I’ve got to hand it to Chad and the entire team at Chad Biggs Events for assembling a great team of vendors to make the day look great and for putting so much thought into preparing a timeline that kept everyone on track with zero stress. Everything ran so incredibly smoothly and we had ample time to take photos with everyone feeling relaxed and happy, which is not always the case on a wedding day! A huge thanks to Chad and everyone else mentioned above for making it a great day.
Finally, thanks to Jackie and Rob for being such cool people to be with. From their engagement photos, to Jackie’s bridal session to the wedding day itself, it’s been great getting to know you both and I wish you all the very best for a long and happy future together.
And now, without any more ado, here are my picks of the pics…
