Cristi and Ryan’s Charming Downtown Wedding | Market Hall | Raleigh, NC

Cristi and Ryan were all smiles on their gorgeous wedding day, despite COVID trying to make its mark in North Carolina (and everywhere else in the world). The entire celebration was held at the industrial Market Hall in Downtown Raleigh where pre-wedding preparations, ceremony, and reception would all take place. The day started with Cristi and her bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup done by Megan Murray Hair and Ellevated Beauty before Ryan and his groomsmen arrived to get ready in another part of the venue. Once everyone was ready, Foxtail Photography captured the first looks and wedding party photos outside the venue on the charming cobblestone street.

The couple was married in the Park View of Market Hall and transitioned to the Market View for their reception. The reception space was simply yet elegantly decorated by Flowers on Broad Street and Theme Works, with stringed lights, signs, candles, greenery, and white bouquets, complementing Market Hall’s rustic tones to create a clean and romantic atmosphere. Guests were treated to a dinner buffet prepared by Market Hall and finished with a stunning cake made by Ashley Cakes, which even came with a personalized sketch of their cake! The night was full of laughter and music provided by All Around Raleigh DJ and topped off with a grand sparkling exit as Cristi and Ryan departed for the first time as husband and wife.
