Eclectic Raleigh Wedding at 1705 East
After years of designing gorgeous wedding makeup and hairstyles at Bella Trio salon, it was finally Cait’s turn to walk down the aisle as the bride at the 1705 East wedding venue in historic Raleigh. Cait & Jeremy are Southern lovebirds with offbeat taste, and 1705 East offered the perfect combination of traditional and modern style. The color palette for their eclectic Raleigh wedding featured peach, lilac, eucalyptus greenery, ivory, and pops of pink and copper accents. As a Bella Trio Salon makeup artist and hairstylist, Cait turned straight to Southern Bride & Groom magazine to find the perfect vendors for her unforgettable wedding day.
A Modern Day Romance
Having met online, Cait & Jeremy are a true modern day love story. After meeting in person, they discovered that although Jeremy grew up in Florida, the house his family moved to in high school was just down the road from Cait’s childhood home! Fate?
Following a romantic city engagement in the twinkling streets of Chicago beside a water fountain, the couple planned their May wedding to take place at 1705 East wedding venue in North Raleigh.
Bella Trio Salon Prepares a Bohemian Bride-to-be
Preparation for the big day was easy due to Cait’s special connection with Bella Trio Salon & Spa as an employee. Bella Trio styled Cait’s hair with softly curled bangs framing her glowing smile and an updo tucked in naturally with white flowery hair pin accessories. Cait’s boho bridal look was completed with natural makeup, a dreamy smokey eye, and a classic red-lip. She got ready for her eclectic Raleigh wedding in the 1705 East bridal suite.
Tre Bella’s Whimsical Wedding Flowers & Bridal Gown
For her boho bridal gown, Cait chose to wear a Blush by Hayley Paige from Tre Bella salon in downtown Durham. This beautifully fitted dress was covered in incredible beading details and had dazzling neck and back lines. Tre Bella salon helped Cait find the perfect bridal gown to match her modern bohemian style.

Priceless Advice at the End of a Wedding Day
Bride Cait offers some pretty amazing advice for any couples planning their wedding,
“Surround yourself with people who will support you. If you never end up practicing the first dance, it will turn out fine. Also things will go wrong, don’t sweat it! My strap broke right after the ceremony but I had a sewing kit so I fixed it right before pictures. Both ended up breaking by the end of the night but I just left it because it was kind of a running joke at that point and it’s just a sign of a good party that I danced by straps off!”
