Victoria and Phillip love spending time in Downtown Raleigh so it was only fitting that we celebrate their engagement by creating some images at their favorite places. From Martin Street to my favorite overlooking Raleigh’s skyline, we all had fun having drinks and enjoying Raleigh’s downtown.

Happy 2015!  We were so blessed to work with some awesome couples in 2014.

Now that 2015 is here, its time to pull out the calendar and get organized!

2015 is going to be an exciting year as we travel to Florida for Justin & Emily’s Wedding plus Brittany & Tanner’s destination wedding in Charleston, SC….to name a few.

Of course we still have numerous weekends open in 2015 and we’re now booking for 2016.

Here are a few of our 2015 couples.

Terri & Eli’s Christmas wedding in the Myrick Estates area of Lake Gaston was one of a kind.  From the unique setting in front of the bride’s family barn to the homemade hot chocolate for their guests, this wedding was nothing short of a winter wonderland.

Terri arrived at the wedding in her father’s Model A Ford Cabriolet.   Their story continued when they danced the night away under the barn lights and then left the wedding showered in “snow” by their guests.

(The snow, by the way, was actually potato flakes…just like the movies.)

What a way to wrap up a perfect evening!

It was an honor being part of their winter wonderland wedding.  We wish them many happy years together.

Lindsay and Dustin’s wedding at Duke Chapel in Durham, NC was nothing short of magnificent!  After a week of rain and cold temperatures, their day was perfect for making some outdoor photos on the Duke campus.

Family, friends and Dustin’s law enforcement brothers all gathered to see the two exchange vows inside the historic Duke Chapel.

Lindsay & Dustin added some special touches to make their wedding unique including Lindsay’s Brooch Bouquet made from vintage family jewelry, and her cake topper looked  just like the happy bride and groom.

It was a pleasure being part of their wedding at Duke Chapel.  We wish them many happy years together!

Emily & Joe’s wedding was picture perfect.  The Pine Groves at Magnolia Manor Plantation in Warrenton, NC was perfect backdrop for their fall wedding.   Emily comes from a farming family so they chose a unique country farm theme for their reception.  Complete with homemade preserves and tobacco roses for guests to take home.

It was a pleasure being part of their wedding day at Magnolia Manor in Warrenton, NC.  Shelia and staff are always great to work with.  We wish Emily & Joe many happy years together.
