st. mary’s & umstead wedding photographer – sarah & jake
Sarah & Jake were married back in February in a beautiful, intimate ceremony at St. Mary’s School Chapel in downtown Raleigh followed by a full-on party at their reception at The Umstead. These are two amazing venues for a wedding: Built in 1855, St. Mary’s Chapel has a fabulous vintage feel to it, which beautifully complemented Sarah’s dress and Jake’s classic tuxedo look. Conversely, The Umstead, which opened its doors in 2007, is a super modern design with sleek, elegant architecture that provides a fabulous backdrop for the getting ready and wedding reception part of the day. I really enjoyed photographing the fusion of the feel of these two disparate venues for Sarah & Jake. They are a really special couple and I wish them every happiness for the future together.
Thanks to the fabulous vendors and service providers who came together to make it such a special day:
