Courtney + Nick’s North Ridge Country Club Wedding

If there was ever a wedding that perfectly embodied the couple – it would be this one! Although Courtney and Nick now live in Atlanta and were planning from afar, their Raleigh wedding was absolutely flawless! It was such a joy to see this sweet couple and their friends and family come together and celebrate as one!

The day began at Courtney’s parents’ house where her and all her best gals spent the day getting ready, taking photos, and having a lot of laughs. You could tell from the energy in the room that these ladies had been friends forever and it was like a middle school sleepover relived. It is so great seeing our brides soak up every minute of a day that often flies by!

After spending the day at home, everyone headed off to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church ready to walk down the aisle! After a meaningful, heartfelt ceremony, they took off to North Ridge Country Club in style – on the Raleigh Trolley! (Raleigh brides: not only does this make for great pictures, it is a super fun way to ride with your entire wedding party).

The reception setup was absolutely gorgeous: As guests walked in they were greeted by a beautiful escort card display and friends of the family who gave guests a warm and familiar smile. As they meandered past their life map, family pictures, and a stunning bridal portrait, guests entered a ballroom filled with 13 chandeliers! To match this gorgeous lighting, Courtney chose a color palette of ivories, whites, and golds, with a touch of deep greens mixed in. To compliment the mixture of square, rectangular, and round tables, Flowers on Broad did an assortment of tall, medium, and long flowing table arrangements! The abundance of candles added a glow to the room that truly set the mood. After a fun mingling, stations-style dinner, guests hit the dance floor accompanied by TFC band and did not leave the whole night!

When it was time to send off the bride and groom (to the after party in Five Points) guests grabbed a sparkler and lead the way to a brand new Bentley that Courtney’s brother surprised them with to take them away! As the party wrapped up guests grabbed a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and coffee (always a hit) and kept the party going!
