1705 Prime Wedding

Sarah and Nick were married this past December in what could only be called a perfect wintry wedding. With a ceremony at Fairmont and a reception following at 1705 Prime, their Raleigh wedding was lovely from start to finish.

The junior bridesmaid carried this pomander style bouquet. Different from traditional bouquets, the pomander is a ball of flowers hanging from a decorative ribbon. This variation from traditional bouquets is also a great option for flower girls or other bridesmaids.

With the exception of the junior bridesmaid, the other three bridesmaids carried simple bouquets of baby's breath which were perfectly complimented by their soft sage green dresses.

The bride and groom chose to incorporate a "wishing tree" into their reception decor. This gorgeous tree, designed by The English Garden, was accompanied by little tags with which guests could write congratulations and wishes for the bride and groom.
