The sun was shining and the sky was a beautiful shade of blue for Allison and Walkers wedding day. I had been so excited to photograph their wedding since meeting Allison who was referred to me by an old college friend (thanks Amanda :). Allison was so warm and friendly when we met and I knew her wedding would be great.
Perhaps my favorite part of the wedding was Allison’s beautiful veil. The veil was passed down from her mom who wore it in her wedding, to Allison’s sister who wore in her wedding, then to Allison who of course wore it for hers. What a great tradition and story to pass on! It matched perfectly with her GORGEOUS lace wedding gown from Victorian Rose Bridal. Allison truly was such a beautiful bride!
The ceremony was held at Hillyer Memorial Christian Church in downtown Raleigh, and the reception followed at Marbles Kids Museum. I had never photographed at Marbles before and absolutely loved the space. It’s such a great venue and a very unique space for wedding receptions.
After a delicious dinner provided by Rocky Top Catering, guests danced the night away to music provided by The Shakedown, who kept the dance floor full all night. Walker’s dad had quite the dance moves along with many of the guests, and they all kept me smiling and laughing all evening and of course my camera very busy. For the farewell, Allison and Walker rode away in a bike rickshaw to end a great day of wedding festivities.
Thank you again for choosing me to be a part of your special day and I wish you both many blessings in the future. Another big thank you to Connie of Connie Feng Photography for coming out and being my second shooter for this fun wedding.
