Welcome to the blog! I am a film photographer from North Carolina, with a authentic, timeless style. Have a cup of coffee and/or glass a wine if you prefer and join me on a journey of love stories!
“I hope you don’t mind, that I put down in words, how wonderful life is while you’re in the world”
If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully: Or if thou thinkest I am too quickly won, I'll frown, and be perverse, and say thee nay, so thou wilt woo: but else, not for the world. In truth, fair Montague, I am too fond; And therefore thou mayst think my 'haviour light: But trust me, gentleman, I'll prove more true than those that have more cunning to be strange.
Katie and Will’s wedding took place at the historic Merrimon Wynne House in Downtown Raleigh. This historic home has a long history in Raleigh dating back to 1876. The inside of this spacious house is dripping with beauty from gorgeous chandeliers, mirrors, a stunning staircase, and definitely the most gorgeous bridal suite that I’ve ever photographed. Not only is the house a photographer’s dream, but the outdoor ceremony space and carriage house is immaculate as well!
The wedding day couldn’t have been better with lots of beautiful sunshine and gorgeous flowers from Meristem Floral that accented all the structural beauty of the venue! The bride and groom had a romantic first-look on the grand staircase and then took time to themselves for portraits. Katie had her bridesmaids in blush maxi dresses and the groomsmen in dark navy suits accented with blue checked bow ties.
The ceremony took place in the side yard of the Merrimon Wynne House and with an arbor drenched in lush greenery and pink, blush, peach, and white florals.
At the reception, the couple wanted to have a sundae bar instead of a cake. Andia’s Homemade Ice Cream made the Bride and Groom personalized sundae with Mr. and Mrs. waffle pieces! The day was so sweet and continued with the most epic dance party by Bunn DJ Co.
