07 Sep Bona & Traylor – The Stockroom at 230 – Raleigh NC Photographer
If I could relive Bona and Traylor’s wedding day, I would do it again and again. Sometimes, it feels like the stars align and the entire wedding unfolds in moments of perfection. That was definitely the case for Bona and Traylor’s Stockroom at 230 wedding.
After having her hair and make up done with the girls at Primp, Bona and her bridesmaids arrived at The Stockroom at 230’s newest addition, The Glass Box, to get dressed and finish getting ready for her walk down the aisle. I cannot say enough good things about The Glass Box. Seriously, it is such a stunning space with the most gorgeous natural light. Every single detail of the room added just the right amount of character to the space. As I watched Bona get ready, I couldn’t help but notice just how sweet and kind she was to each and every person that entered the room. She simply beamed with happiness throughout the entire day.
After Bona and the girls finished getting dressed, we explored Downtown Raleigh while capturing some amazing shots. I can honestly say Bona may be the only bride we will ever have that would suggest sitting on the bar of Tasty 8’s, an amazing hot dog joint, one of my favorite Downtown Raleigh restaurants. Seriously, I cannot say enough how laid back and fun Bona and Traylor were!
While I finished up bridesmaid shots with the girls, which included a stop at Raleigh Times, Will headed down to capture Traylor and his groomsmen getting ready at The Marriott City Center before heading out for some equally fun groomsmen shots.
Soon after, it was ceremony time! I honestly don’t know who smiled more as Bona and her dad walked down the aisle to Traylor. It was truly a sweet moment. There were so many smiles throughout the entire ceremony.
After the ceremony, Will and I took the entire bridal party down to the State Capital building for some fun shots before heading back to the Stockroom for what goes down as one of our favorite receptions of all time. Bona and Traylor really know how to throw a good party. We especially loved have Mr. and Mrs. Wuf come dance the night away with the guests. After the reception ended, Bona and Traylor rode off on a rickshaw.
Bona and Traylor, thanks again for allowing Will and I to take part in your amazing wedding day! We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better day!
Thanks again to all the amazing folks that helped make Bona & Traylor’s wedding day perfect!
