When I first met with Amanda and listened to her describe her vision for her May wedding, I was dying to be a part of it. Although I projected a professional front, every ounce of my creative inner being was screaming to work with her. She must have caught on because luckily she granted me the opportunity to take on a role within her extremely artistic and whimsical wedding.
There was nothing traditional about this couple or their wedding. The bride showcased her talents from the handcrafted bridal and bridesmaid’s bouquets to the guy’s boutonnieres. She even constructed the cake topper out of wine corks. The carnival-like theme was carried out from the aisle lined with multi-colored rugs to the handmade flag pendants spanning the perimeter of the tent to the “Fortune Teller Fish” wedding favors.
The ceremony and reception took place at Mordecai Historic Park in Raleigh, North Carolina. If rain on your wedding day is good luck, then this couple won the lottery after pulling off a ceremony during a torrential downpour. The rain didn’t deter the couple nor did it stop Gallant Fox Photography who was there through every drop capturing each moment. Following the ceremony, the sun reappeared and guests moved to the tent for the reception. As they enjoyed Chubby’s Tacos, Anything Music provided a stellar playlist that packed the dance floor.
From the bright colors, pinwheels and quirky details, this wedding was a perfect reflection of the bride’s eclectic and crafty style. The pictures below highlight one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and provide the perfect sneak peek into a whimsical wedding wonderland.
