Ashley and Dustin’s beautiful downtown Raleigh wedding was the perfect way to kick off the season! They tied the knot the weekend of St. Patrick’s day, and I don’t think any of us knew that Raleigh is quite the hub for celebrating St. Patty. It was very festive, people everywhere were dressed in green, and the weather was warm and breezy. Cobblestone hall was the perfect venue for their celebration, in the heart of historic downtown.

One of the highlights of the evening was when the Wake District Pipes and Drums unexpectedly showed up at the reception. They asked to play a few songs for the bride and groom, and it was incredible to hear over 25 bagpipers and drummers filling Cobblestone with their music!  Definitely a fun surprise and memory for every guest!

Ashley and Dustin are simply perfect together. I overheard a family member say, “Ashley is such a rock,” and it’s true. She is loyal, immovable, unshakeable. She loves and admires Dustin, who loves to laugh and have a good time. They are the perfect balance! Congratulations on a beautiful wedding!
