Courtney and Mario decided to have their wedding reception at the Raleigh Marriott City Center. Not only is the ballroom the perfect venue for a classically elegant affair, but the convenience for guests is also a huge benefit for any couple having a lot of out of town guests. The classic ballroom lends itself to any theme, and they went the whole nine yards, with stunning decor including draping to complete the upscale look.
Fresh Affairs completed the elegance of the wedding with their classically beautiful floral arrangements. Courtney said “In conversations with Lyn, I told him I wanted to keep the flowers very clean with all tones of white and he definitely delivered on that request.”
Elana Walker of Elana Walker Events planned Courtney and Mario’s special day. “Elana was great in helping us make decisions along the way and advising us on vendors that she thought would help us achieve our overall vision for the day,” shared Courtney.
