The Oaks at Salem Wedding | Mark + Catherine | Raleigh NC Wedding Photographer

I enjoyed photographing Catherine and Mark's beautiful Oaks at Salem wedding so much.  Catherine and Mark are just the nicest people, who love their friends and family so well.  Their sweet ceremony was held at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Cary, followed by a gorgeous and fun reception at the Oaks at Salem in Apex. 

I got to know Mark and Catherine during their engagement session, and I knew then that their wedding day would be wonderful - they are both super easy going and love to laugh.  Their wedding day was no different; they were completely happy and relaxed the entire day. 

Catherine is one of FOUR beautiful sisters, and she made all three of her sisters her Maids of Honor - so sweet!  I loved seeing the dynamic between them and their incredible mom, Patty.  One of my favorite images of the day is a candid capture of Patty and Catherine's grandmother looking on as Catherine was buttoned into her wedding dress; their expressions conveyed so much love for her.  This is one of those images that reminds me why I love photographing weddings, and that capturing the real stuff (and not just the pretty stuff, though of course I love that too!) is so important to me. 

Thank you Catherine and Mark for choosing me to document your special day, and congratulations!  Enjoy a few selected images from their beautiful wedding day:
