The Cardinal Club is a wonderful location for a wedding. We were all so happy that Jason and Briana chose an indoor venue for this very hot time of year! Rebecca Naderman, the events manager there, was a pleasure to work with and had all the details handled to perfection. The ceremony room was on the lower level of the penthouse and the cocktail area and reception room were on the very upper level of the 28th floor with a commanding view of downtown Raleigh.
Our DJ, Joe Bunn, attaches a microphone to Jason's lapel.
Our Wedding Director, Lynn Scott of Happily Ever After, goes over the cues for the music with Joe.Bob Taylor of TaylorMade Video videoed the wedding for the couple.
expansive the view is from here. In front of the window is the cake stand but the cake was still in the cooler. It was made by Sweet Memories but we did not get a photo of it because it still was not out by the time we left.
Brides and Bouquets.
Down on the first level, the girls were getting ready in the Sir Walter Room. Our photographer Craig Carpenter of Luster Studios is busy getting some shots of our beautiful bride.
The grandparents, parents, wedding party and the bride were escorted into separate rooms off the ceremony room to wait for the guests to be seated and the ceremony to begin.
Time to begin!
The mirror behind us did funny things to the focus of the camera!
The ring exchange...
The pronouncement of marriage!
