LaVerne and Conley have officially tied the knot and we are so excited to have been a part of their special day! LaVerne reached out to us almost a year ago about her special day! I knew from the first time that I met her and Conley that they would fit perfectly into our Story and Rhythm family!
LaVerne and Conley chose to tie the knot at the Terraces at Sir Tyler in Wilmington, North Carolina! This was our first time visiting the Terraces, but I am in love with their spacious ballroom and roof top patios! When we arrived, Conley and his groomsmen were busy getting dressed on the 1st floor. The ladies were getting dressed on the 2nd floor! We spent the first couple of hours photographing their special details and getting ready photographs! Before long, it was time for the ceremony to begin! I love the design and decor that Creative Touch Events created in the ceremony and reception space!
The ceremony was so sweet! I love that they chose to do a unique unity tradition that included tasting different things such as pepper and honey! It was so unique and fun to watch! LaVerne and Conley exchanged gifts with their parents and then sealed their vows with a kiss!
We enjoyed spending the day with these guys and their families and friends in Wilmington, NC! Read on to hear how Conley proposed to LaVerne!
Conley and I met in college but did not date until more than twenty years had passed. Conley took me back to a location in Wilmington, NC, where he asked me on our first date. The place is being sold and so it was in a state of disrepair! He proposed to me by getting down on one knee, and asking me to be his wife. It was intimate and charming.
Be sure to check out their downtown Raleigh engagement session too!
Wedding Venue: The Terraces at Sir Tyler
I chose The Terraces for the modern feel of the exterior of the building. I also liked the clean lines and spaciousness of the ballroom/rooftop terraces. I wanted the guests to have an overall experience–to feel that you were somewhere else in a marvelous place on a beautiful day for a tremendous reason!
