Vow Renewal at Historic Market Hall in Raleigh, North Carolina - November 13 2016

On November 13, 2016, A & A renewed their vows and had the wedding they had put off when they first tied the not.  It was an amazing and special day!!!

Their vow renewal ceremony and reception were held at Historic Market Hall in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Market Hall is large (reportedly over 5000 square feet, with two levels and an awesome "getting ready" area upstairs).  It's also old - historic, even! - providing an old world feel and ambience (especially outside, where there are cobblestone/brick streets and twinkle lights hanging from street lights) to weddings, vow renewals, and events that are held there.

Especially nice is the bridal "getting ready" area on the second floor. The walls are painted in a neutral color, and there is lots of natural light. Also present are mirrors and a pretty chaise lounge. Space is plentiful and beautiful.

 

The "getting ready" area/bridal suite, located on the second floor, was lovely!!  Large windows allowed natural light to stream in, and the inside walls were painted a neutral gray (very nice for wedding photography!).  The entire "getting ready" space had a light and airy feel to it, and there were numerous places to hang clothing and wedding attire.  Sheer drapes were able to be pulled across the windows to diffuse the light, or pulled back to let more into the room.  In both cases, sunshine bathed the bride's gorgeous wedding dress in perfect light.

The natural light made the space functional for bridal makeup and hair to be done on site, as did the spaciousness of the room.  Tables bureaus, and chairs made it a comfortable environment for the bride, her bridal party, relatives, and the hair and makeup team.

This was a military ceremony, and I incorporated part of the groom's uniform pants into the couple's ring photos.

The groom's side of the "getting ready" area was a bit smaller than the bride's, but more spacious and comfortable than the groom's area at many other venues at which I have photographed!!

The "getting ready" areas on the second floor are spacious and perfect for both the bride and groom.

 

From both the bride and groom's areas, I was able to look down through an inner window and see the ceremony area downstairs.  

The couple decorated their ceremony area with elegant drapery - classic, timeless, and so, so pretty!!

The first floor is a really nice space for weddings and events. It is open, with lots of windows. Tons of room for DJ, catering, dancing, ceremony, and other aspects of a couple's special day.

 

We took advantage of the outdoor twinkle lights for post-ceremony portraits.  There was quite a bit of ambience in cobblestone/brick streets just outside the Market Hall doors.
