Prestonwood Country Club wedding | Taylor and Jarrod

Blog Main Photo template
I always tell my couples to “be in the moment” on their wedding day. To feel. To laugh. To cry. To love. And to focus on the things that really matter – each other, their families, and their friends and loved ones who celebrated this joyous day with them.

And all throughout their Prestonwood Country Club wedding, Taylor and Jarrod did just that. They were present. They lived and loved in every moment. As Taylor and her best friends just stood and held hands in a quiet moment. As her mom beamed with pride when her dads saw her for the first time that day. As Jarrod watched through misty eyes as she walked down that aisle. As joy overflowed as they said “I do” in front of the people they love most. As they laughed and hugged and danced and celebrated…long into the night. Because those people and those moments are truly the ones that matter.

Taylor and Jarrod…oh how I adored you from the minute I met you. And what fun we’ve had together – whether it was creating magic at Pullen Park or photographing gorgeous bridals or just hanging out over lunch, I think I have smiled far more than you have! Thank you both for being so open and for your genuine friendship – “awesome” is an extremely understated way to describe you! May you always be “in the moment” throughout your marriage. I wish you a lifetime filled with love, happiness and overflowing joy! Much love… OXOX ~ Renee

If Taylor looks a bit familiar, you probably saw her stunning bridal portraits, also taken at Prestonwood this spring.

River Run Country Club Wedding | Kara + Yates

Today is the happiest day of my life.” ~ Yates Creech

This was Yates’ Facebook status the morning of his wedding to Kara. And it kind of encapsulated the entire day. For Yates. For Kara. And for all of those who love them and who came to witness their vows to each other.

Ever since Yates met Kara, he has been deliriously happy. Giddy, even. In fact, from the time he proposed (see their proposal story here), Yates never stopped smiling. He just couldn’t wait for their wedding day. Not because of the wedding itself, but because at the end of the day, they would be married and starting their new life together. And this thought alone made him happy. Even though rain threatened their River Run Country Club wedding – and eventually fell off and on throughout the day – nothing could dampen their spirits. Nor dim their smiles. Friend after friend and loved one after loved one piled into the church Surrounded by friends and close family, Kara and Yates promised to love, honor and cherish each other; to always put the other first; and to never forget to smile!

If Yates seems familiar, you may remember him from his sister’s wedding post from a couple of years ago. Oh how I love this family!

Yates and Kara – oh how I love you two! The way you look at each other….the way you smile at just the mention of the other’s names….love for each other and your happiness makes me happy. I am thankful for your friendship and appreciate you making me part of your family. I am honored and humbled to have been part of your day. May all of your days be filled with love and happiness and may you always make each other smile! Much love! OXOX ~R

Prestonwood Country Club Bridals | Taylor

The hardest thing about photographing bridal portraits — especially with a bride as statuesque and gorgeous as Taylor — is waiting months until the wedding to be able to share them with the world! Now that Taylor and Jarrod are married (wedding photos coming soon), I’m so happy to share her Prestonwood Country Club bridals with you! She looked beyond amazing in that gorgeous Old Hollywood-style gown by David Tutera and her flowers by Fresh Affairs were stunning. Pure perfection!

Butler Chapel Wedding | Brooke + Tien

Blog Main Photo template
Brooke and Tien had a distinct vision for their Butler Chapel wedding. They wanted it to be simple. Small. Intimate. And focused on the things that truly matter. Love. The love-you-with-your-whole-heart kind. And heartfelt joy that brings tears to your eyes. Laugh-from-your-toes-through-your-belly kind of laughter that you only get with the closest family and friends. And their day was all of that and more! In fact, it was pretty much the definition of picture perfect! Gorgeous weather: not too hot and breezy when we needed it. And a couple in love. And a gathering of family and friends from near and far, who came to witness an emotion-filled ceremony — and who remembered to bring their boogie shoes for the reception! 

Brooke & Tien, Though our time together was short – I wish you didn’t live in PA! – I feel like I’ve known you for years. You and your families are incredible and I’m honored to have gotten to know all of you. I can’t think you enough for having me with you on your day! And now that we share an anniversary, on OUR day. May love and happiness be yours for always! ! I will think of you and celebrate your love as I celebrate my own anniversary each year! Much love! OXOX ~ R

Meredith College Bridals | Sarah

Blog Main Photo template

When you’re an MCG, some of the fondest memories of your life are of time spent on campus. This is definitely true for Sarah. She planned to get married at her home church and hold her reception at The Grand Marquise Ballroom (see her gorgeous wedding here). So when it was time for bridal portraits last fall, she knew she just had to incorporate Meredith College into her plan somewhere. Sarah looked especially beautiful on this day and we couldn’t have asked for more glorious weather – or more picturesque scenery for her Meredith College bridals. Enjoy a few of my personal favorites!

Garden on Millbrook Raleigh wedding | Danielle + Josh

Danielle-Josh
He loves me for who I am. This is one of the first things Danielle said when I asked her to list three things she loves about Josh. When you see them together, there is no doubt that he does. They’re laid back and comfortable together. They’re romantic and a little playful. But mostly, they’re just Danielle and Josh. Each in love with the other – because of who they are.

They’ve been together five years, so they’ve seen their share of the ups and downs of life. And just a few weeks ago, they experienced the highest of highs as they stood in front of friends and family from near and far, promising to love each other with abandon. For a lifetime. “Just for who I am.”

Danielle and Josh….Oh how I adore the two of you! Thank you just for being you! I am deeply honored and humbled that you opened your hearts and shared your day – and your love –  with me! I wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness. May you look back on this day 50 years from now and realize that it was the one when you loved each other the least. Much love…OXOX ~ R

Raleigh Cardinal Club Wedding | Erin + Dave

Blog Main Photo template
Erin tried to meet people in all the usual places: through friends, at clubs, at school. All to no avail. So she decided to try the online route – and that’s where she met her match! She liked that Dave was different from the southern boys she was used to dating (he’s from New York). And she liked that he has a great sense of humor and larger than life personality that always makes her laugh.

So nearly four years after their first date – and a lot of laughs later – Erin and Dave stood at the altar of Edenton Street Methodist Church and exchanged vows. They promised to spend the rest of their lives loving and laughing together. And if their Cardinal Club wedding reception is any indication, they will do just that!

Erin and Dave….Oh how much fun I had with you two. Thank you for being so warm and welcoming and for making “having fun” on your wedding day a priority! I can’t thank you enough for sharing the day with me and trusting me with your memories! I hope your home is always filled with love and laughter, just like on this day! Much love…OXOX ~ R

Raleigh Bridal Portraits | Julie

downtown raleigh bridals

Meet the incredibly beautiful Julie! When Julie contacted me about photographing her wedding, I was over-the-moon excited. I mean, just look at her! But…then she told me her date. And I was booked with another incredibly beautiful bride (not that I’m biased or anything but I really do have the prettiest brides around!). So, I didn’t get to photograph her wedding, but I DID get to photograph the second best thing: her Raleigh bridal portraits. Like all of my brides, she’s a classic one. She got married at Hillyer Memorial Christian Church so we used the grounds outside the church for her bridals. Enjoy just a few of my favorites.

Carolina Inn Bridal portraits | Valerie

Carolina Inn bridal
When discussing her vision for her bridal session, Valerie said she was hoping for some iconic Carolina Inn bridal portraits. Timeless, elegant and classic. Which was easy – those are the same words that describe Valerie herself. Pair this stunning beauty up with the gorgeous surroundings at the Carolina Inn, and you definitely get timeless, elegant and classic!  (And tell me if you don’t think she favors Jackie O in some of these!) Enjoy a few of my favorites from her bridal session earlier this spring!

And, if you missed her gorgeous wedding to Matt earlier, check it out here.
