Carolina Inn Wedding – Frances & Lewis

Frances & Lewis’s Carolina Inn wedding took place on a warm but rainy Saturday in December. The weather actually turned out pretty perfectly as Frances loves black and white photographs and the clouds and rain really leant itself to that vibe. The fact that the rain stopped in time for the first look and group photos was just the cherry on top! After the reception had wrapped, we finished up the evening with a lovely, intimate shoot at UNC’s iconic Old Well. It was a perfect end to a beautiful day.

Here are just a few of my picks of the pics….
