The last wedding of the year was for a beautiful couple Lydia and Jamal, held in Raleigh. The wedding and reception were in separate locations, both in Raleigh. The reception was at 5:00 PM.
Appetizers were served as the guests arrived along with an open bar, prior to the wedding parties arrival. Once a brief reception was held, then dinner.
