My favorite part of the day was watching Kate and Matt giggle to each other all throughout the day. They chose to keep things traditional by not seeing each other until the ceremony, and when Kate got down the aisle and was given away by her dad, she and Matt were in their own little world. She was whispering about how handsome he looked and gushing over her soon-to-be husband. See more of their day on the blog!!! VENUE: Melrose Knitting Mill, Raleigh COORDINATION: Southern Oak Events
The first wedding of 2022 is in the books!!!! Kate and Matt had a beautiful ceremony at Melrose Knitting Mill, Raleigh surrounded by all of their friends and family. Kate's smile is radiant and Matt makes a handsome groom!!! Here are just a few sneak peeks, and I'll be sharing the full recap later this week :) Coordination: Southern Oak Events

We just had our wedding here and wouldn’t change a thing about the venue! We had originally planned a 2020 wedding and had to postpone until 2021, and Jessica Tilton was so helpful as our day of coordinator. She answered all my texts and emails the year(s) leading up to the day and made me feel confident and happy on the big day. We had our ceremony at sunset and the lighting was absolutely beautiful. I usually hate wedding food but the Melrose had such good food. Loved the little grilled cheese and tomato soup poppers at the cocktail hour! The only thing I’d change was having shot glasses at the reception bar, as I guess the bar staff wasn’t used to such a lit crowd lol. Otherwise the perfect venue!
