I’m thrilled to have the time to blog more about my weddings! This week’s installment brings another fabulous Raleigh wedding at the Grand Marquise Ballroom, a beautiful wedding & reception venue located in east Raleigh. Having a wedding and reception at the same location makes the photography a bit easier as we don’t have to travel at all, giving us lots of time to capture some amazing photos!
The Grand Marquis has two rooms upstairs for the bride & groom to get ready in before the ceremony. I can’t tell you how nice it is to have “‘Pretty rooms” at the same location as the ceremony to work in. In fact, as it was raining after the ceremony, it’s where we shot quite a few of their formal portraits.
Liz & Charles entered their reception just as they entered their wedding ceremony, except this time they came down the stairs hand in hand to a room full of applause. Their first dance was really gorgeous, with the uplighting set to their wedding colors, a gobo with their initials on the dance floor and surrounded by family and friends.
As they reception wore down to the end, I got perhaps what is one of my all time favorite sparkler exit photos (It actually got featured by David Tutera’s Wedding planner Facebook Page).
I hope you enjoy a few select photos from Liz & Charles wedding!!
