Three distinct cultures came together last month at Pascale and Tim’s Umstead wedding: with Lebanese and Japanese elements intertwined with a traditional American wedding there were so many beautiful moments and pretty details to take in. From the getting ready with the always-amazing Stephanie at The MakeUp Culture, to the first look on the boardwalk, the ceremony overlooking the lake, through to the reception with its origami details, traditional Lebanese drum band, confetti-enhanced cake-cutting and plenty of dancing courtesy of the talented DJ Rang, it was a great day to be a wedding photographer.
Everything was put together brilliantly by the fabulous Kelley Ann of A Southern Soirée and I want to send out my gratitude to her and the rest of the team of vendors that made it such a fantastic event. Thank you guys!
