We kicked off Viviana and Shawn's wedding coverage by meeting them at their homes where they were getting ready. At that time we captured details, hair and makeup and some candid portraits. It's a wonderful time to see the energy of the day unfolding as we get closer to the departure to the cathedral.
A very warm and inviting family. We were made to feel like one of the guests. You can see the connection and bonds these two families have for one another. Just incredible.
The St. Catherine of Siena cathedral in Wake Forest is quite a beautiful building located in the quiet suburbs. It's really quite a silent but strong figure in the community. After completing the ceremony, family portraits and creative portraits we all headed over to The Garden on Millbrook down in Raleigh.
One of things I love about The Garden on Millbrook is the amount of drive and energy Mark, the onsite manager demonstrates. Coordinating his staff to perfection and making their guests feel at home. It's really quite extraordinary when you see this kind of production in action at a venue and one we love. Everything flows smoothly and the guests have a great experience.
