The Dillon Raleigh is an amazing venue with both indoor and outdoor spaces that are perfect for any wedding or event. The team, led by Hobnob Occasions, highlighted the venue perfectly with their modern and elegant decor, tablescapes, color palettes, and dessert table. Our favorite feature is the two ceremony options that overlook the skyline! So incredible!
From Hobnob Occasions
“Hobnob Occasions called in some of their very favorite industry friends, The Dillon Raleigh, Libby McGowan Photography, American Party Rentals, and Teacup Floral to create an inspirational wedding shoot that was not only romantic but would showcase Raleigh’s stunning skyline. The Dillon’s rooftop terrace and lobby were the perfect spots for this Dream-Come-True shoot.
Hobnob Occasions designed the wedding photoshoot to highlight The Dillon Raleigh. Both the spacious indoor lobby and the sprawling outdoor terrace were set up to showcase the many wedding ceremony and reception options available at The Dillon. The soft colors of sage, mauve, blush and gold were used as the main color palette. American Party Rentals provided the gorgeous tableware, linens and seating while Kelley at Teacup Floral created centerpieces and breathtaking florals for the triangle arbor and circle arbor.
The shoot began inside with tables draped in champagne crush linens and dusty rose napkins. The gold ray charger paired with a beautiful china pattern, elegant glassware and gold Arezzo silverware completed the look. The wedding cake was embellished with florals and displayed beautiful on the gold twist risers from American Party Rentals.
We then moved outside where we could take advantage of the golden hour to shoot the rooftop terrace. Using Hobnob Occasions’ mood board for inspiration, Teacup Floral created a stunning and unique ombré arrangement to adorn our new triangle arbor. The custom-built arbor is a modern take on a traditional arbor that pairs well with the clean lines of the downtown buildings. And because we like to offer options, we also incorporated a gold circle arbor, complete with another arrangement from Teacup Floral, to include in the shoot.
A spectacular outdoor floral installment for the cake table highlighted the vintage cake topper that first topped the cake of a dear friend’s mother and father on their wedding day. The soft seating package created by Hobnob Occasions was moved outside and we added a table with a different place setting featuring a North Carolina pottery collection, sage napkins, black silverware and completed with antique copper chairs.
But the star of the show was the location. The Dillon Raleigh, in the heart of downtown the warehouse district, is the perfect blend of industrial modern elegance with rooftop urban ambiance. The beautiful, 9th-floor outdoor terrace and spacious indoor lobby create picturesque views of the City of Oaks create a one-of-a-kind setting for wedding celebrations. With its floor-to-ceiling windows, sunlight fills the spacious lobby during the day for a warm and welcoming daytime ceremony. The open-air rooftop terrace nestled above Raleigh’s bustling downtown life and a sky full of twinkling stars is a perfect spot to dine and dance the night away as the sun slips below the horizon.”
