Melissa + Shaun | J. C. Raulston Arboretum| North Carolina Museum of Natural Science | Raleigh Wedding

Frolicking through downtown Raleigh on the same day of prom and a beer run/marathon. Yep, that was us on Melissa and Shaun’s wedding day. After weeks of spring low temps and rain, everything cleared up, the sun came out and it was the most beautiful day for a wedding.

Melissa and Shaun’s ceremony took place at the gorgeous J. C. Raulston Arboretum followed by their reception at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science. The day was all about celebrating with their closest friends and family. From the moment I arrived, champagne was being poured, toast were being made and there was so much dancing. There was not a moment the dance floor was empty. Shout out to all of the vendors that made this day an incredible one:
