CLAIRE + BLAKE - Artspace Wedding

You may remember this gorgeous couple from their rainy day engagement session. : ) Claire & Blake were married at All Saints Chapel in Raleigh, North Carolina, and had a SLAMMIN' celebration afterward at Artspace.

Just LOOK how much they love each other! It makes me so happy to see one of my friends find her match. Shooting this wedding was delightful, because everyone was SO sweet and SO on top of things. The day went flawlessly, and Claire & Blake make one beautiful couple!

Fun fact: During college, Claire and I studied abroad together in Sydney, Australia, and we took a darkroom class together at the College of Fine Arts of UNSW. It was during this time that I discovered my love of photography, and Claire shared that experience with me. So, shooting her and Blake's wedding holds an extra special place in my heart. : )

Thanks a ton to Nathan Clendenin of Cana Collective for helping me document this happy day!

Penny is such a cute pup!

Claire got Blake a really nice Armani watch, and he made sure to set it to their wedding date... the 12th!


These bridesmaids = gorgeous and fun!

Claire's grandfather officiated the ceremony, which made it extra meaningful for them.

This little boy was SO adorable riding on the trolley for pictures.


There were AWESOME dancers in this crowd!
