I guess it’s a sign how far behind I am with the blog when I’m just getting around to posting Tracy’s and Tyler’s Raleigh wedding photography from Stockroom at 230 last May. I’ve wanted to do this post for awhile because it was an awesome wedding in the really unique atmosphere of Stockroom at 230. Also, Tracy and Tyler are fun and amazing people, and I’ve had the honor of shooting Tyler’s sister Lauren’s wedding; Lauren’s maid of honor Adrienne’s wedding; and, most recently, Tyler’s NC State fraternity bother’s Hunter’s wedding to Dorothy at Twickenham in October. I’m like the family photographer now, and I’ve had such fun being a part of all their special days.
I met up with Tracy and Tyler at the Sheraton in downtown Raleigh to capture photos of them getting ready. From there, we walked to Stockroom at 230 for the ceremony. I love the bricks and dark wood and bright windows at Stockroom at 230; it’s a very classy feel from another time and made for some really different wedding photos from the ceremony.
After the ceremony, we took a party bus to Dorothea Dix Park in downtown Raleigh for wedding photos of the bridal party. Can I say how much I love this park? It feels like Raleigh’s version of Central Park in New York City. There are so many beautiful trees and open, rolling fields. And the awesome view of the Raleigh skyline provided a great backdrop for our bridal party photos. Many thanks to Nicole Conder at Premier Party Planners for all her help helping organize the day and making things run smoothly.
After photos at Dorothea Dix, it was back to Stockroom at 230 for the reception and party. And, man, this group knows how to party! Dancing and rocking the karaoke; everyone got down. And at the end of the night, all the guests sent Tracy and Tyler off with a sparkler salute on Fayetteville Street outside Stockroom at 230. Perfect end to a great day. Congrats, Tracy and Tyler!
