I met Danielle and Thomas back in March and was immediately struck with the fact they were such an easy-going, fun couple. So, as you can imagine, I was very pleased when they asked me to document their wedding day at the Forest Theatre and The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill – two of the most picturesque venues in the area.

From the preparation pictures at the Inn, to the ceremony, to the formals at the Old Well on the UNC campus and back to the Inn for the reception, you can see we had fun the whole day. It really was a great Chapel Hill wedding for everyone involved.

Here are a few of my favourite images from the day:

You could see right from the outset just how much they are into each other by how naturally they interacted. These are a few of my faves from their day.
carolina inn wedding photography – kristen & matthew (x2)
In England, we say that rain on your wedding day is good luck, so, that being the case, this couple is truly blessed! Kristen & Matthew's gorgeous wedding took place at The Carolina Inn on October 8th, 2016. This turned out to be a pretty significant date as it is also the day that another Matthew visited us for a pretty intense few hours.

Everything from the first look, to the family photos to the couple's photos to the ceremony itself had originally been planned to take place outside, so quite a bit of thinking on feet had to be done by everyone invol ...
