Krista & Russell, Raleigh Wedding Photographer

Asheville Wedding Photographer

Krista and Russell were married last weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina on a beautiful Spring day!! All week the weather predicted rain – but you know we do live in North Carolina – so we arrived at the venue with beautiful Carolina blue skies and a cool breeze. It was perfect. As we arrived at the bridal suite, Krista was sipping a mimosa, calm and collective. I seriously, SERIOUSLY have the most relaxed brides – not sure how I get so lucky – but thank you, Jesus, for these amazing women you send me! Krista had all of her details ready for me to style and photograph (one of my favorite parts of the day!). I love hearing how each detail became a part of the couple’s story and why they are important to them. My favorite detail from Krista’s collection might be her little lamb that has traveled with her everywhere since she was little – or maybe it’s the red bottoms that Russell surprised her with in a ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ movie – kinda way during a surprise trip to NYC. It’s clear these two are romantics at heart and love to surprise each other! During their gift exchange, they both splurged after telling one another not to go big on gifts. I loved seeing the surprised looks on their faces!

Their wedding ceremony was held outside on the lawn with their dearest friends and family. They shared their vows and sealed with a kiss! They shared an intimate First Look but we still captured some more portraits after the ceremony – the sun was dreamy!! Forewarning, their portraits are busting at the seams – I had too many favorites not to share!! The reception kicked off with introductions, delicious food, and the sweetest first dance. About halfway through the reception, Fresh Local Ice Cream showed up for an ice cream bar – I’d like to say the kids loved it but truth is, everyone enjoyed it! The kids mostly enjoyed the endless whip cream ;). The night continued with lots of dancing and celebrations for the new Mr. & Mrs.! We loved being a part of this day and are so excited for the newlyweds!! Thank you for allowing us to capture this beautiful day! xoxo
