Devon and Aaron’s April wedding proved to an amazing day from start to finish. Hair and makeup began early in the day at Marcellos Salon in Sanford before Devon and her bridesmaids arrived at Jonesboro Heights Baptist Church for the ceremony. When we walked into the church to set up for the ceremony we were shocked by how many feathers we saw.  Apparently Devon loves, LOVES feathers. So much so, that her bouquet, wedding dress, reception center pieces and cake all had beautiful white feathers on them! The church was also decorated with feathers, flowers and sparkly silver details that made the ceremony venue a personal extension of Devon’s taste.

Their wedding reception was held at the Carolina Trace Country Club in Sanford, NC. One unique benefit of hosting your wedding at the club is that the venue offers the option of hosting outdoor ceremonies on the golf course should you prefer your ceremony and reception to be in the same location. The reception hall has enormous windows that allow lots of natural light to fill the room and plenty of space for family and friends. Wanting to begin their reception and be with family and friends as soon as possible, Devon and Aaron chose to have their bride and groom portraits taken during the reception. This let us take photographs on the golf course later in the day using the stunning evening light. The rest of the night was filled with lots of dancing, a photo booth, a sparkler exit and their getaway in a classic car.

The day was filled with lots of happiness, laughter and, of course, feathers. Please take a moment to check out some images from Devon and Aaron’s special day!

 

Mary and Frank had their afternoon wedding ceremony at historical St. Mary’s Chapel located in Raleigh, NC.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of visiting the chapel, it’s a stunning historical venue with very old stained glass windows, amazing wood architecture and steeped in rich history no matter where you look.  I wouldn’t imagine a more perfect intimate venue for their wedding  The ceremony was gorgeous and full of laughing, smiling and even a few tears…   in other words, perfect.

The celebration continued at the reception which was held at Cafe Luna, just down the road from the ceremony in downtown Raleigh. The cafe made for the perfect reception venue, as it is intimate, full of charm yet enough room to really throw a party.  Franke from Island Sound got the crowd jumping and even joined in for  a dance with one our lovely brides daughters.  The happy couple was sent off under a shower of sparklers to start their new life together.

As always, I hope you enjoy a few photos from their big day!

 

 

It’s been an incredibly busy (yet rewarding)  past few months here at the studio! Despite photographing weddings nearly every weekend (sometimes 2 or 3) we’ve managed to finish the process of moving our office to the new Apex location. Along with our move, we’ve also been updating the little details here and there regarding our online presence. We’re excited to share that we’ve just completed the process of updating our website. Employee bios, new wedding work and important information can be seen at www.brianmullinsphotography.com. Be sure to stay connected and follow our photography blog to see more of what we’ve been up to this year. It will also give you a chance to view some of the other commercial photography projects we work on from time to time (besides weddings) including head shots, food photography and architecture. Thanks for staying connected and we hope you enjoy the new website!

Amanda and Mike’s March wedding began with hair and makeup at Salon Blu in Raleigh. After taking some beautiful photos of the bride and her bridesmaids getting made up for the day, we headed over to Duke Chapel for their evening wedding ceremony. We lucked out with absolutely gorgeous weather and took some fabulous outdoor shots of the bridal party as well as of the bride and groom on the chapel grounds. The bridesmaid’s yellow rose bouquets made by the Watered Garden perfectly complemented Amanda’s wedding dress from Tre Bella Bridal. The reception was held just down the road from Duke Chapel at Washington Duke Inn. Not only was their wedding venue beautifully decorated, but there was also plenty of room for the 150 guests.  One of they most unique features of the wedding was their table “names”.  Mike, being a game designer, had each table names after his favorite video games.   The theme carried over to Amanda’s wedding ring, which was designed after princess daisy’s ring from mario brothers. We hope you enjoy a few select photos from their big day!

You may notice we are finally starting to get caught up on a HUGE backlog of wedding and commercial photo shoot blog posts.  2013 was an absolutely incredible year in business and we found ourselves with, quite literally, no time for anything else then taking care of our amazing clients.  With the addition of Sarah, we’re finally getting caught up on our long overdue blog posts as well as an assortment of other things in our NEW studio space. We’ll be blogging about our new space soon as well (right Sarah?) so stay tuned for that as well!
