Melrose Knitting Mill Weddings

Well, what a fun day this was! Lauren and Dennis’s Good Shepherd & Melrose Knitting Mill wedding!! Lauren and Dennis live out in California, so I actually met them for the very first time on their wedding day. Till then we’d been talking via email and a Skype meeting. Even through our limited communication, though, I could tell they were a really cool couple. And this was finally confirmed when I rocked up to The Church of the Good Shepherd in downtown Raleigh and finally got to hang out with them. And what better day to do that than their wedding day?

This was my first time shooting at the Good Shepherd and what a beautiful church it is. It’s kind of hidden away in plain sight a stone’s throw away from the NC Capitol building, but it tends to get upstaged by the Sacred Heart Cathedral across the road. When I went in the day before the wedding to meet the coordinator there and scope out the church, I was totally blown away by its beautiful stained glass windows. Weddings are limited to parishioners and their families only, so they only do a few a year, nut I definitely hope to be invited back again to photograph a wedding there soon.

Following the ceremony, Lauren, Dennis and I walked over to the grounds of the Capitol, less than a block away. We spent a fun half an hour or so photographing portraits there before heading back to the church for them to get their beautiful vintage 1940 Cadillac Lasalle over to the Melrose Knitting Mill to catch the end of cocktail hour. As always, the Mill provided a fabulous backdrop for some additional portraits before we headed in for the reception where Mitch from Bunn DJ Co. had everyone partying till the wee hours. As you’ll see in the later pics, everyone had a blast – well, almost everyone ;).

OK, enough already. Here are just a few of my faves from the day. Congrats to Lauren & Dennis!

Hi everyone! So, here we are – spring is finally here and the 2019 wedding season is well and truly underway. I’m really happy for 2 reasons: 1) the sun is out and 2) I’ve just finished working on this beautiful Melrose Knitting Mill wedding photography from a few weeks back. Johnique and Derrick’s was actually the first of two weddings I shot at Melrose that same weekend. It’s not often I shoot two consecutive weddings at the same venue, so I think this gives me a great opportunity to maybe show two very different, but equally beautiful weddings back-to-back. I always strive to capture the personality and uniqueness of each of my coupl ...
