Claire + Matt | Chapel Hill, NC | Wedding

Claire and Matt were married at St Francis of Assisi in Raleigh on a gorgeous, warm North Carolina summer day. After the ceremony we all hopped in a limo and rode over to Chapel Hill for their reception at the always lovely Carolina Inn. Over the course of their wedding planning I was lucky enough to become friends with Claire (one of the perks of working with such sweet brides) – I learned that much of her family was in California and Matt’s family was in New York. Their wedding day was full of so much love and support as so many of their guests traveled from all over the country to North Carolina to join in on celebrating Claire and Matt’s love and commitment to each other. 

After the “I dos” were official we all hopped a limo and rode over to Chapel Hill for a few photos around UNC’s campus and the Carolina Inn.
Seriously how gorgeous are these three sisters? I love that Claire had her two sisters in different color dresses from the rest of the bridal party – so special! And My goodness Make Up For Your Day did such an amazing job on the ladies hair and make-up!
We had some beautiful afternoon light for their formal photos after the ceremony. The Purple Puddle did a wonderful job on Claire’s bouquet…it was even just featured in the newest issue of Southern Weddings V5! If you haven’t seen the issue yet, be sure to pick up a copy at your local shop ( I know Barnes + Nobel carries them) or order easy by clicking HERE Congratulations Claire and Matt!!! These two will be finding out very soon where Matt will match for residency…and I secretly have my fingers crossed they match up here at MCV so we can be neighbors :)

Becca Jane + Todd | Chapel Hill, NC | Married

When posting a couple’s wedding day photos, I find it fun to go back and look at what I wrote for their engagement post…and for Becca Jane and Todd, I started off their Engagement Session Post with this…

One of my sweetest couples yet.

It’s true, they really are. These two each even had a surprise for each other at their reception, they are so adorably in love. To make this story even sweeter, Becca Jane’s best friend, Candice, is married to one of Todd’s brothers (awesome sister-in-law deal right there!) and on top of that Candice was the one who played awesome match-maker and first brought Becca Jane and Todd together :)

It’s no secret that women love a man in uniform…the sword arch exit is just another fun perk :)

So happy Graham was able to grab a shot from the back as they excited…so pretty!
After the toasts and cake cutting Todd surprised Becca Jane with a sweet serenade. Hands down one of my favorite moments of the wedding. 
One of the most fun and hilarious bridesmaids I’ve ver met! Love this shot Graham captured!
How awesome is Todd’s reaction below…here Becca Jane walked him over to reveal her Surprise Ice Cream bar to him! Pure AWESOME.


As always, I got to work with some amazing vendors!
