Cadillac Service Garage Wedding| Rachel & Bo | Greensboro NC Wedding Photographer

Raleigh-wedding-photography-37.jpg

This wedding had such significant meaning for me - Rachel is like family to us as she was the world’s best babysitter to our kids during her senior year at NC State. When she graduated I took her graduation photos and then even went on to photograph her Grandmother’s (yes Grandmother’s!) beautiful and intimate wedding. So of course I squealed with delight when she told me that she and her wonderful boyfriend Bo were engaged and that they wanted me to photograph their Greensboro wedding!

Rachel and Bo have been together since high school, and anyone that spends any amount of time with them can easily see how perfectly they fit together. They are both warm, kind, playful and super easy going.

Rachel and Bo got ready at their reception venue, the ultra cool Cadillac Service Garage - high ceilings, exposed brick and gorgeous black and white checkered floors made for a perfect place to get ready and take portraits before the ceremony. Their ceremony was held at the beautiful First Baptist Church in Greensboro, then it was back to the Cadillac Service Garage for the party!

There were too many wonderful moments to recount them all, but some favorites were Rachel and Bo’s first look, Bo’s brother’s heartfelt and touching reception toast (happy tears all around!), and the AMAZING band that had almost every guest on the dance floor all night long, However my favorite moment might have been the private last dance they shared at the very end of the evening after the guests had gone outside to get ready for their sparkler exit. It was just the perfect moment for them to be alone and take in all that had happened that wonderful day.

Enjoy a few favorites from their beautiful Cadillac Service Garage wedding and see below for all the talented vendors that came together to make this amazing day possible!

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:
