Modern Romance with Classic Style at Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel
When you’re a bride or groom with lots of friends and family you can sometimes be torn between two types of wedding venues: a gorgeous venue vs. a convenient venue. But why not book a wedding venue that’s both? For Megan and Patrick, the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel was the perfect combination of modern elegance and quality convenience.
Located in Midtown, the heart of Raleigh’s premier shopping and restaurant destinations, the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel has it all. Newly renovated, the hotel has been designed to create an experience for guests that is both luxurious and chic. Bride Megan loved the newly redesigned interior of the hotel and new it would make for a whimsical wedding venue. It was important to Megan and Patrick that their guests could have a place to celebrate and sleep at their Raleigh wedding. Simple, chic, and timeless were the three wishes for Bride Megan’s wedding day dreams. White flowers and greenery added a touch of fresh accessories to the hotel’s already beautiful interior design. Megan Kerns Photography (another Megan!) captured the special moments of Megan and Patrick’s day as they celebrated their love with friends and family.
Someone Threw a Love Potion into the Boston Harbor!
Have you ever attended a wedding as a single person and thought to yourself, “When is it going to be my turn?” You quickly scan the crowd for someone who looks close to your age and cute. If you find this scenario relatable, then you’ll understand the beginning of Megan and Patrick’s love story. The two met while attending a mutual friends wedding in Boston. Fast forward to Megan taking a weekend trip back to Boston to visit friends. Coincidentally, Patrick and his friends showed up at every place Megan and her friends visited. Sound suspicious? The two lovebirds started dating and one day while sitting by the Boston Harbor, Patrick popped the question. After Megan said yes a boat magically appeared and escorted the engaged couple out onto the water for drinks and a sunset. Another coincidence? Love works in mysterious ways y’all.
