Kate & Jim’s story began like many others do this day in age: online! Jim made such a big impression during their first date at a local downtown Raleigh restaurant and continued to “wow” Kate by surprising her at the school she taught at with a huge bouquet of flowers. His gentlemanly tactics stole her heart and the rest is history.
The couple opted for a ceremony at Church on Morgan where Kate’s grandparents’ bible was used to guide the ceremony. Her grandparents have been married for 67 years and have been role models for the couple since day 1. This was a moment Kate considers most memorable. After their ceremony, the new couple celebrated with a City Club Raleigh reception, a party that Kate described as “flawless.”
The bride wore a beautiful lightly embroidered lace gown by Martina Liana. The fit and flare style paired with the beaded sash, also by Martina Liana, was perfect for Kate’s big day.
Kate & Jim’s vendors worked with them to bring their dream day to life. See below for more information on their vendor team!
