Heyyyy there everyone. : ) Things have been pretty quiet on the blog this year due to our growing family (and therefore my limited bookings!), but I am very excited to share a wedding with y'all today that I shot last June. Clare and Andrew got married at St. Francis of Assisi, and the reception was held in downtown Raleigh at The Stockroom at 230.
I have known Clare since college (more on our friendship HERE), and I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her and Andrew's wedding. Everyone who spoke at their reception talked about how Clare and Andrew always strive to help people be the best versions of themselves, and I couldn't agree more. They are two of the kindest, most generous and thoughtful people that I know, and I'm lucky that they chose me to document such an important day in their lives.
My favorite parts of their wedding day were the moments of anticipation leading up to the first look, the heartfelt toasts given by their family, the band (you guys...I couldn't stop dancing to Whiskey Rebellion...so good!) and the food (Andrew specifically designed the menu and boy did it rock my taste buds!). Oh, and just simply being surrounded by some insanely nice folks all day was a real treat.
