Do you like trains, old cars, and other things with wheels? Do you like cool wedding stuff and brides that weld? Then this blog post is going to check all your boxes! It’s exciting for me to finally be able to get this blog post out here with some of my favorites from Laura and Matt’s awesome wedding day.
Laura and Matt are friends we made during our motorsports/competition days and I was so stoked when they reached out to me to cover their wedding this year. We met at Krankies Coffee in Winston Salem, grabbed a bite to eat (my breakfast go-to there is the Texas Pete and Honey chicken biscuit. You’ll thank me later!) and they told me about their wedding at the most magical place: The North Carolina Transportation Museum. Apparently I’m slacking at being a good NC resident, because I had never been to the museum before. IT TOTALLY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS! This place is awesome. So much history and texture, and an amazing place for wedding photos. Here’s a few to prove it:
Fun fact: These centerpieces were welded up by the bride!
Cue the raddest B+G of all time (Laura and Matt):
And tears! I love me some bride tears!!
Then we basically had the run of the place for some amazing couple’s photos after the ceremony. I LOVE that roundhouse, y’all. And If I’m recalling correctly, this is a pretty rare one since it’s still operational with it’s bridge (fact check me!).
Gnomes and succulents make this my favorite cake ever!
And we can’t close out this blog post without a power stance:
Congrats again to Laura and Matt! We had an awesome time partying with you guys at the Transportation Museum and wish you lovers the very best!! And you guys should check out the NC Transportation Museum if you’re local and haven’t already. History is cool.
