City Club Raleigh NC Wedding

City Club Raleigh NC Wedding

City Club in Raleigh was the perfect location for Kara and Fernando's timeless and chic wedding. The couple first met after a mutual acquaintance organized a get together. At the beginning, the meetings were quite casual, but before long, the pair realized more and more that they belonged together. Six years later, they were more than ready for marriage. Fernando asked, Kara said “yes!” A rehearsal dinner at Tyler's Taproom in Raleigh kicked off the wedding festivities for this lovely duo. Kara and Fernando's ceremony took place at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. Its large row of windows and circular wooden pews made for an exceptionally special ceremony.

To keep with the timeless theme, the couple chose a navy, orange, and champagne color palette. The bride’s bouquet from Victorian Seasons perfectly kept to the hues of choice.

Kara wore a Casablanca boat neck mermaid-style gown full of beading, along with a stunning a veil. Her bridesmaids wore short Da Vinci champagne dresses in various styles, along with navy blue peep toe heels.


Fernando and his groomsmen all wore navy blue suits with champagne ties and brown shoes. Even the darling flower girl and ring bearer coordinated with an ivory dress, navy shoes, and a navy suit, respectively.


Getting married in front of their most beloved family and friends in the church they belong to was special and heartfelt.

After the ceremony, they made their way to the tallest building in Raleigh for a reception with an impeccable view of the city skyline.

Tables dressed with champagne linens, beautified with small flower arrangements helped balance the contemporary feel of the venue.

Cinda's Creative Cakes provided the gorgeous confectionery centerpiece. The cake was exquisitely crafted with lace, satin ribbon details, and the most beautiful orange flowers for natural décor. The couple also gifted each guest with a cupcake favor, too!

City Club provided guests with delicious fare. Fernando and Kara danced the night away thanks to DJ Brian McGuire with McSound Productions. And with the incredible view of the city, they were able to see the sunset and nightfall on the city of Raleigh – a treat for guests who had never been there before!

As their wedding day came to an end, they set their sights on their honeymoon destinations: the Florida Keys, Philadelphia, and Niagara Falls. Congratulations!
