When it came time for Brian and Mandy to find the perfect venue for their wedding they both knew without a doubt exactly where they should exchange vows, Fred Fletcher Park in Raleigh. The two live right down the street from the park and have spent countless evenings strolling with their dogs through the beautiful grounds. It truly was the perfect place for the two to say “I do”. Despite the fact it was the hottest day of the year up to that point but not even the beautiful sunshine could keep Mandy and Brian and their guests from having an amazing evening. One of our favorite highlights of the evening was when we ushered the happy couple behind the Borden Building for an unforgettable gift from their bridal party. There stood a plaque to mark the place where a tree will be planted in the park this Fall in their honor of their marriage. Now Brian and Mandy along with countless other happy couples and families will have a shady spot to stop, enjoy the beauty of park and make their own lasting memories.
Every single detail of the day was carefully curated by the couple with the help of their friends and family. From Mandy’s stunning wedding gown she and her mom designed and sewed together to the tasty cookie bar where Mandy’s brother baked over 1200 cookies in two days for all of their guests to enjoy. Even the cake topper which was silhouette of Mandy, Brian and their two dogs was cut personally by her father. Not a detail was left untouched and each memory shared will stay with this couple and their guests for years to come. Congratulations Mandy + Brian!
