2014 was an absolutely fantastic year in which I got to document the weddings of some fabulous couples whom I all now call good friends. And so it was extremely fitting to round out the season on a real high with the gorgeous wedding of Rachel and Kevin at Duke Chapel and Prestonwood Country Club. Falling as it did on the Saturday before Christmas, the whole event was full of festive cheer that was as contagious as it was colourful. Duke Chapel itself was beautifully decorated with red poinsettias which complemented the red and black palette chosen by Rachel for the bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen’s waistcoats.

The highlight of the reception for me was the bride and groom’s first dance, which was brilliantly choreographed by Rachel. Prestonwood Country Club was the venue and it, too, was decked out with seasonal decorations that made for a great backdrop for the photos.

Big thanks to all the vendors listed above for making it such a lovely event to photograph. And, of course, my heartfelt thanks and best wishes for a long and happy future together to Rachel and Kevin.

Have a great 2015 everyone!

duke chapel & carolina inn wedding – sidney & andrew
Sidney and Andrew's wedding marked my first return to Duke Chapel since it reopened its doors earlier in the summer. Well, I'd stopped in on the odd occasion to for shoots and to check out progress while it was being renovated. I'd also been back with Sidney, her mum and sister a few weeks earlier when I shot Sidney's sunset bridal  session (the images at the top and bottom of this post are from that session). But this was my first time shooting a full wedding since April 2015. Needless to say, I was really pleased to be back in what has to be one of my favorite venues to photograph in.  To have such an occasion backed up with a reception at ...
