From our first meeting with Shaun and Alleya in downtown Raleigh, we knew that we’d had so much fun working with them! We spent their engagement session walking and talking around downtown Raleigh! Brian and I left there and couldn’t wait to celebrate with Alleya and Shaun at their 1705 East wedding! Finally the day arrived!
Alleya was busy getting hair and makeup done when we arrived! Shaun was doing typical groom things on a wedding day before getting dressed in his suite! The ceremony decor was set and before long, their guest started to arrive! Alleya shared a very sweet first look with her best friend and wedding planners daughter before she headed down the aisle!
Shaun’s reaction to seeing Alleya as she walked down the aisle with her father has to be one of my favorites to date! It was such a sweet moment! The officiant announced them as husband and wife and they shared their first kiss as newlyweds! Everyone exited the ceremony and headed over to cocktail hour! I got to spend some time photographing their beautiful family before we headed outside for bride and groom portraits!
The remainder of the evening was filled with dinner, dancing and lots of awesome music as DJ Brian Jay played! Alleya and Shaun’s wedding day was amazing! Congratulations again you two!
