Leah and Tyler’s Gorgeous Fall Wedding at The NC Museum of Art | Raleigh, NC

On a beautiful October day, Leah and Tyler got hitched at the NC Museum of Art with a fabulously unique Studio 54-inspired theme. It was the kind of day that was all about love, memories, and some really special personal touches. The most heartwarming part? Leah decided to wear her mom’s wedding dress, but with a redesign to make it her own. It was a sweet nod to her mom, who was very much there in spirit. Both Tyler and Leah’s dad rocked boutonnieres with a silk rose made from Leah’s mother’s dress fabric, too, which was an incredibly special touch.

The whole day felt like it was straight out of a movie, thanks to some amazing people behind the scenes. Curl and Co made sure Leah’s hair and makeup were on point, and Mood Fleuriste’s flowers were absolutely stunning. Keeping with the Studio 54 theme, each table was named in honor of the famous discotech’s celebrity patrons, with the head table featuring Andy Warhol, of course.  The Magnolia String Quartet set the mood for the ceremony, and then The Dickens Band had everyone hitting the dance floor later on. Let’s not forget the ride in style with Carolina Car Service and EcoStyle Transport making sure everyone got around safely. And for a fun twist, Two Roosters popped up with an ice cream cart that was a hit with everyone.

Michelle Elyse Photography was there to capture all these moments, so now Leah and Tyler have these beautiful memories to look back on. It was a day filled with love, a bit of nostalgia, and lots of dancing – a perfect start to their forever. Congratulations, Leah and Tyler, and thank you for allowing Chestnut & Vine to be there alongside you on your special day. Wishing you both a lifetime of love, health, and dancing!
