st. mary’s & umstead wedding photographer – sarah & jake

Wedding Photography

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:

People following this blog will know that I like to try to tell stories with my images and that one of my favourite parts of the day to cover is the preparation time when the bride is getting ready. This week's image shows the bride's mum helping her daughter into her dress, which is always an emotional highlight of the day. Something about putting the dress on makes everything so real and imminent, which can be quite a moment after months of planning and anticipation. Those same people following this blog will know that I am a big fan of keeping out of the way and just letting moments like this happen. The fact that the bride was position ...
