This gorgeous couple eloped first.
But in December of 2019 they invited guests and had another ceremony to allow their families and friends to celebrate with them. And they chose a pretty perfect spot: Caffe Luna in downtown Raleigh. The setting conveyed the right amount of elegance, coziness and a sense of a “holiday family gathering” that the couple was looking for.
The Caffe Ceremony
The Caffe was transformed into a ceremony space where everyone could watch them exchange vows in a more formal way. Like lots of couples these days, Stephanie and Prudvi chose to keep their closest friends close to them, so the wedding party was mixed gender. We love this trend!
The jewelry that Stephanie wore was a gift from the mother of the groom. The couple also brought back items from their elopement that they wanted shared and photographed on the day. The family made all of the bridesmaids bouquets and the centerpieces.
Reception and Party
Part of their special December day was spent walking through downtown Raleigh with their bridal party and photographer grabbing photos, hamming around and celebrating.
Love wins, you all! We look at these images and are reminded how weddings are the beginnings of unions, supported by family and friends and grounded in respect and love. Cheers to you both Stephanie and Prudvi and we wish you decades upon decades of health, happiness and prosperity.
