Every couple begins their event and wedding planning journey with inspiration; a vision of what your special occasion will look like.  Details and décor come together to create the overall feeling you want your guests to experience.  Things like the food, the cake, the flowers, even the space itself, all contribute to the theme and design that will leave a lasting impression.

While this event was a styled shoot rather, the elements are the same, and allow our creatives to showcase their new ideas, styles and trends. This shoot, captured primarily at nightfall, involved intricate décor setups. Everything from the linens to lights can be seen as our designer, Jennifer, from Southern Skies Events, captures all the potential of the space and themes it with pure ambiance.

Jiddi Space & Courtyard, in Downtown Raleigh, was the selected feature venue to showcase breathtaking ways to utilize this unique, hidden gem. The exposed brick, market lights and decorative touches make this venue perfect for any style.

To give you a small feel of what our wedding professionals can accomplish for you, we asked talented photographer,  Jeff with IndigoSilver Photography to capture our creative planner’s vision, and put together a gallery of delightful inspiration. Known for storytelling wedding photography and empowering boudoir sessions Jeff has a way with his clients that creates both a safe space and stunning moments captured on camera.

Bringing guests together, food is at the center the overall experience. Classic dishes, fine wines and desserts bring the event to life and allow you to add personal touches in a special way. Friends and family can talk, laugh and make memories- all around some of your and your now spouse’s favorite foods. For this shoot in particular, Sitti, Gravy and Confectionate Cakes came together to create masterful delights that satisfy any palette.
