Grace and Will (or is it Will and Grace! lol) had an absolutely beautiful wedding at St Mary’s Chapel with the reception following at The Cannon Room. Located on the 12th floor in the heart of downtown Raleigh, the Cannon Room provided the perfect backdrop of the city to finish off the day. Below is a little more wedding inspiration from the couple.
Why did you choose the venues that you chose?
We chose the Cannon Room because we were looking for something indoors with a classical style. The Cannon Room was a perfect fit, not only was it built in the 1920s but it also has a phenomenal view from the 12th floor.
Let’s talk about your ceremony! Vows, Traditions, anything…. We want to know.
Will and I decided to write our own vows, we wanted something personal for each other yet reflective of our personalities.
What inspired your wedding decor? Did you have a theme in mind?
We were going for a timeless style to coincide with our choice of venues. I made many of the decorations myself, and I wanted to make things that we could hang up in our home as a keepsake from the day, particularly, the wedding sign.
Why did you choose the colors in your wedding?
We chose gold and wine because I really like wine as a fall color and knew I could find beautiful bridesmaid dresses. Gold is a timeless color and I knew the decor would look great with the wine accents.
Which part of your wedding are you looking forward to the most and why? (first look, ceremony, reception….)
I think the two of us are looking forward to the reception the most. We have put a lot of work into the planning of the reception, so we are very excited to simply enjoy it!
