katie + patrick // wedding . cary nc

We had a great time with Katie & Patrick at their [ engagement session ] in Raleigh earlier this year, so were excited for their big day to finally arrive. Katie, Patrick, & their families were so warm & welcoming to the both of us - couldn't have asked for a better group to work with! :)

Katie's dad surprised her with an Essex Super-Six Coach from [ Classy Transportation ] as their ride to the country club. This car was amazing - loved its suicide doors!

The ceremony was at [ Prestonwood Country Club ] & took place on the gorgeous grand staircase.

A few shots of the newlyweds around the country club during cocktail hour:

The ballroom all decked out for the reception with florals by [ The English Garden ], & catering & cake by [ Prestonwood ].

Thanks for everything, guys!!

katrina + steven // wedding . clayton nc

We always feel lucky that we have the most amazing clients, but this season it just seems like every wedding we shoot, we get the chance to work with the sweetest people on earth! Katrina, Steven, & their families were certainly no exception! It's always a treat when we get to spend such a special day with people who are so genuine, kind, & totally in love. Thanks for everything, Katrina & Steven!

As always, beautiful flowers by [ The English Garden ] in Raleigh.

Their ceremony took place at [ St. Ann Catholic Church ] in Clayton. Love the look on their faces when Katrina & Steven first laid eyes on each other! :)

Then we headed to [ The Clayton Center ] for the reception, where we took photos of the newlyweds out on the lawn.

Gorgeous cake by [ Clayton Bakery & Café ], catering by [ Morning Glory Inn ], & music by Eric Hodgden of [ All Around Raleigh DJ Company ].

The guys ducked out of the reception for a little bit to smoke some celebratory cigars:

Thanks again, guys!!
