Modern Summer Wedding with Tropical Vibes at The Fairview Raleigh, by C and D Events

The Fairview Raleigh is a new warehouse venue near downtown Raleigh. Its open spaces and white exposed brick walls serve as a blank canvas for any event. NC wedding planners C and D Events brought modern design and a tropical flair to this space.

The wedding venue shares a building with their sister company, ThemeWorks. This specialty rental company has furniture, lighting and more. Many of their products are showcased in this Fairview Raleigh wedding inspiration. A vibrant color palette and tropical wedding flowers make this design perfect for summer!
