Raleigh, NC Wedding | NC Museum of Science | Ryan + Beth

The celebration of their union was truly creative. Everything was dinosaur and reptile related. On their reception tables there were dinosaur figurines big and small. They even took pictures in the faux aquarium and the taxidermy room. The icing on the cake (pun intended) was when Elizabeth’s dad began the father-daughter dance wearing a giant T-Rex mask!

First stop, the courthouse

Elizabeth and Ryan actually got married at the Courthouse prior to their reception and pronouncement of vows at the Natural Science Museum located in Downtown Raleigh. Their reception was a DREAM and it couldn’t have happened without these wonderful vendors:

Cake + Catering: Rocky Top Catering
DJ: Dow Oak Events

Party Time

I don’t think there was a single person at the reception who didn’t break it down on the dance floor. This crowd knew how to PARTY! Those memories will be keeping me going through this self-isolating/ social distancing/ great-excuse-to-eat-hummus-and-cucombers-all-day-in-my-sweatpants COVID-19 crisis.

How the Proposal Went Down

This one time at band camp…Ryan and Elizabeth met! Who would’ve thought that 13 years later they’d have one of the most unique weddings I’ve seen to date. Four years ago these wonderful souls got together and decided to build a life together to the beat of their own drum. Ryan ended up popping the question in Scotland at the Dunedin Castle. When asked, Elizabeth gave an enthusiastic “I super do”.

Hopefully these photos will bring you some joy and happiness in these (painfully boring) and ever-changing times.
