We love leaving our home base of South Florida for weddings, especially when it brings us to a city we’ve never visited before. Donzell and Taneka live in Raleigh, North Carolina. Having worked with them on their incredibly special and unique surprise engagement shoot in South Beach last summer, we were really excited to document their wedding in Raleigh this summer. And of course, it’s always nice to explore a new place and get to know the local eats!! Donzell and Taneka practically insisted that we visit “The Pit” for dinner. We’re grateful they did! Good Carolina BBQ, and “to-die-for” cornbread await you there… it’s a must if you’re in the area. But we digress ;-). Having met many of their friends and family at the engagement celebration last year, we had a feeling that this wedding would be full of warmth, laughter, and big smiles. And it was! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, Donzell and Taneka were full of contagious joy. The vibe around the entire wedding was one of genuine happiness for this wonderful couple. Their day was filled with beautiful ritual and tradition… with our personal favorite being the jumping of the broom. Dancing was the order of the evening once dinner had been served, and the entire bridal party tore it up! It was such a pleasure being part of this celebration, and we wish Donzell and Taneka a lifetime of the love and happiness that they shared on this day.
