Morgan & Daniel | Raleigh, NC Market Hall Wedding

Morgan & Daniel had a seriously fun, gorgeous, and moment packed wedding day at Market Hall in Raleigh, NC! They had everything we love about wedding days. From a groomsmen in a wedding dress, to vow pranks, and even a runaway scooter break! Their wedding day was full of surprises that you have to see to believe!

We have formed some of the best relationships with our couples. Morgan and Daniel are no exception. Morgan and Beth already knew each other, as they both graduated together with a Geology degree from East Carolina University AND ended up teaching middle school in the same county of North Carolina! Daniel has a fun loving personality that you can’t help but feel right at home whenever you’re near him.

Getting married is no easy task! There are endless things to plan, details to sort out, seating charts to work through, and so much more. Well, Morgan isn’t your typical bride! Morgan is a middle school teacher! Teaching middle schoolers requires a brave sense of humor that is uncannily similar with the chaos of wedding planning. Morgan surrounded herself with the warmest, kindest group of ladies we’ve been around. The girls enjoyed the classic wedding mimosas, lots of sparkly glitter, and memories that will last a lifetime! Our brides aren’t the only ones that get their chance to shine, we LOVE to photograph our grooms prep and give our grooms just as many memorable and creative images. We already knew Daniel was going to be up for anything after we met him at Morgan and Daniel’s sun soaked engagement session! Daniel’s laid back, fun personality really gave us the inspiration to give him some of those kick-it-up-a-notch creative prep images our grooms love! The fun doesn’t just end at prep for us, Morgan and Daniel made their wedding day extra memorable by pranking each other throughout the day!

Have I said how fun these two were on their wedding day?!? One of our many favorite things about Morgan and Daniel was how naturally fun they were to be around. You can tell they have build their relationship around playful jokes and pranks. Just before the ceremony, some bride and grooms will do a first look to ease off some of those wedding day jitters! Morgan decided it would be a perfect opportunity to play with her soon-to-be husband by putting one of his groomsmen in a used wedding dress (complete with meatball stains). An unsuspecting Daniel awaited to see his bride! When what to his wondering eyes should appear?!? BUT HIS GROOMSMEN DOOLEY in a wedding dress so clear. Don’t fret, Daniel evened the playing field by bringing a blank index card where his vows were supposed to be written! A worried Morgan stood at the altar panicked that her loving husband didn’t write his vows! Daniel kept his vows safe and sound on his phone and all was well… Until we found scooters…

Downtown Raleigh, NC weddings are such a treat for us. There are so many nooks and crannies to get creative. But with the new onset of electric scooters as the cities way to provide transportation, we found a brand new playground of opportunities! Combine these scooters with the cobble stone alleyways in Raleigh and we now had so much room for activities!

Morgan & Daniel your day was so very special to us. Thank you for letting us join in on the fun, get down on the dance floor, and get creative with you. You two are amazing people. We wish you all the love in the world to a happy and fun loving marriage. Safe travels on your adventures while moving to Germany together!
