Lesbian Wedding with Boho Inspo at The Laurelbrook, Raleigh Wedding Venue Home to Catering Works
Today’s blog is a styled wedding photo shoot at The Laurelbrook venue in downtown Raleigh! This boho chic styled wedding was designed by C and D Events. Raleigh’s dynamite duo of wedding planning sisters, Courtney and Dana of C and D Events, transformed The Laurelbrook into an intimate, boho garden wedding venue. Experts at bringing wedding visions to life, C and D Events imagined two down-to-earth brides who would be in touch with the planet as well as their feminine side. Earthy copper tones of green and metal combined with soft blush and white colors gave the space an eclectic living room vibe.
As you scroll through these beautiful photos by Fancy This Photography, take note of how C and D Events worked with the venue’s natural decor. Rather than fighting against The Laurelbrook’s industrial bones, the boho wedding decor smoothes and accentuates warehouse infrastructure. Diverse textures such as macrame, copper, and wood weave together throughout this wedding design in delightfully unexpected ways. A plethora of house plants gives The Laurelbrook a whimsical, greenhouse ambiance.
Boho Wedding Fashion & Beauty Inspo at The Laurelbrook
For these all-natural brides, C and D Events selected a lovely pair of bridal gowns from Bella Bridesmaids Raleigh. There is a simple sweetness to these blush, white lace, and grey boho wedding dresses. Not only do the brides look gorgeous, they look comfortable! High necklines with see-through fabric on both boho wedding dresses creates a modern twist with timeless style. If you’re shopping for a boho wedding dress, we suggest you go with materials such as organza, lace, silk chiffon, and tulle. The softer and more flexible the material, the better! Bella Bridesmaids Raleigh has these wedding dresses and more in your size and color.
Boho Wedding Hairstyles & Makeup by Makeup For Your Day

We love that Makeup For Your Day gave both of these blushing brides hair styles with volume and depth. Va-va-voom!
Planting a Promise, Wedding Flowers and Greenery by Fresh Affairs
We cannot ignore the theme of plants in this boho styled wedding shoot at The Laurelbrook! Succulents, house plants, vines, and bouquets of green and white adorn the entire venue. Raleigh florist company, Fresh Affairs designed elegant white and green bouquets that pop against the wedding’s neutral tones. Fresh Affairs knew that bright colored floral arrangements including orange, yellow, or red would have clashed with C and D Events’ design. White and green floral arrangements are always a classic and elegant choice. Check out the beautiful floral arrangement resting above the welcome sign, or the vines that spill out of modern chandeliers. Fresh Affairs truly made this boho wedding design by C and D Events bloom.
Boho Wedding Decor Styled by C and D Events for a Reception at The Laurelbrook
It’s hard to know where to begin with this fabulous boho wedding design by C and D Events. Our long list of favorite wedding details includes the calligraphy signage on pieces of cloth suspended from copper poles by Mason Dixon Designs. This incredible calligraphy design begins with the wedding invites and welcome sign, continuing to the seating chart, and ends with the table numbers and dinner menus. Combining soft cloth with hard metal creates a beautiful, eclectic wedding style.
For The Laurelbrook reception, boho printed linens and china from Party Reflections are the name of the game. Black and white dinner plates layered with brown wicker chargers and black silverware look amazing. We can just imagine wedding guests sitting down for dinner beneath those gold geometric chandeliers covered with greenery. Don’t you want to reach out and touch those frayed blush and white cloth dinner menus? This wedding design is a boho bride’s wildest dream.
Making an Industrial Wedding Venue Like The Laurelbrook Feel Intimate
The Laurelbrook is a unique venue available for corporate and social events, conveniently located in Midtown Raleigh. Home to Catering Works, The Laurelbrook often hosts cooking classes, themed dinners, and tasting events. In many ways, this warehouse wedding venue is a hidden gem in Raleigh!
The Laurelbrook is an industrial space, with a stained concrete floor and three walls made of poly-carbonate windows framed in metal struts. These massive warehouse windows allow for amazing natural light. The entire event space is a blank canvas for creating a multitude of thematic designs. C and D Events chose plants, neutral colors, and soft living room textures to create a cozy ambiance at The Laurelbrook.
