A real life fairytale wedding is hard to come by. You know, the type of wedding where the bride and groom are so spectacularly in love? Where the reception hall is turned into something straight out of a Disney movie? Where a horse drawn carriage whisks the happy couple away? Sounds dreamy, right?

All of the above perfectly describes Megan and Nico's dream-come-true wedding day. Megan looked the part of a princess in her gorgeous strapless gown, complete with dainty tiara and full length veil. Her bridesmaids shined in their long blush dresses. Nico was dapper in his tux and his groomsmen were just as charming. All the magic of their wedding day was captured by Renee Sprink Photography and Oak City Films.

The happy bride and groom celebrated their marriage at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Downtown Raleigh. Afterwards, friends and family gathered at the Merrimon-Wynne for the cocktail hour and reception. During cocktail hour, guests sipped on creative signature drinks, the 'Blushing Bride' and the "Ron Swanson' and enjoyed corn hole on the lawn.

The Carriage House was decked out for the reception with gorgeous floral arrangements of white and blush with greenery, provided by Meristem Floral. Tall gold candelabras gave a nod to Megan's favorite movie, Beauty and the Beast, and guests were invited to find their place card on a magical hanging table covered in moss. 

Randy with Bunn DJ Company got the party started right and the dance floor was full all evening. Partygoers nibbled on delicious food from Donovan's Dish and a Chick-Fil-A biscuit bar was the perfect answer for those who danced the night away.

After sharing their wedding day with family and friends, Megan and Nico escaped at the end of the evening in a horse drawn carriage. They then kicked off their happily-ever-after with a honeymoon in the city of romance, Paris.

We are so grateful that we could play a part in Nico and Megan's love story and we wish them a lifetime of happiness!
