Oh my word....today was over-the-top amazing! I photographed Claire and Jeff's beautiful wedding at Jones Chapel at Meredith College and their reception at the Garden on Millbrook here in Raleigh. I have been looking forward to this wedding for soooooooo long! You see, I had the joy of photographing Jeff's older brother's wedding last January. Since then, I have fallen in love with his family and many of the friends that they had in their wedding party. Every time I am around this group of friends, I'm blown away by the history, love, and support they all have for one another. It's easy to photograph people who genuinely enjoy one another. That leads me to the Patterson's. One of the greatest gifts I have received is becoming friends with Claire. She has the ability to make you feel like you are the most valuable person in the world. She is a constant source of laughter and joy, and standing alongside her throughout the day was a gift. After being around her family, I can totally see where she gets her happiness from. Lots of Claire's family flew in from England, it is was such a joy seeing Claire with her family....not to mention how amazing all of their accents were. Today couldn't have been more perfect. I'm so grateful that Claire and Jeff chose me to photograph their wedding. Here is a sneak peek of some of my favorites from today.
Dear Molly and Luke, I will never forget our time together in Montreat for your wedding. Your First Look still stands out like it was yesterday...the bubbling brook beside you, the sun piercing through the trees, the solitude of the woods. I love your story and your love for one another. I hope your first year of marriage is just as amazing as your wedding day. Love you both! Happy Anniversary!
Yesterday, I shared with you the moments leading up to when Katie walked down the aisle to marry the man of her dreams. If you missed that post, click here. Today is my favorite...the ceremony, bridal party pictures, and their rocking reception!! Mark, Brooke, and I had a BLAST photographing this wedding. It couldn't have happened without the amazing vendors listed below.
I will be releasing all of Kenneth and Katie's wedding pictures on their online gallery very soon. To see them, follow this link to add your email address to be notified when they are all up.
