Cindy & Neil’s intimate wedding took place on December 27th, 2008 at the Church of the Good Shepard in downtown Raleigh, NC and the reception was at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary NC. After Cindy and I had first talked, I really felt like I knew her family as we really talked about life more then just her wedding photography. Neil is in the Army and was deployed at the time, so Cindy painted this wonderful mental imagery of her wedding day, family & friends who would be attending. Needless to say, when the big day finally arrived, I felt like I knew her family & friends already.
The ceremony was held in the beautiful Church of the Good Shepard on an overcast (but beautiful) Saturday in downtown Raleigh and the parents arrived in a Rolls Royce to the front of the Church. There were so many opportunities for beautiful photos as I had a beautiful couple, beautiful venue & beautiful light and downtown Raleigh as a backdrop. My favorite is the one of Cindy, just having gotten into the Rolls Royce, taking a moment to check out her wedding ring.
The reception was held at the Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC. Every wedding or event I have ever been at photographer at has been gorgeous, and this was no exception. After a wonderful meal accompanied by a pianist, everyone adjourned on the patio for Cigars. With such a collection of close family and friends, the images we captured were beautifully true, honest and joyful moments shared among a very special group.
What a way to end the year! Congratulations to Cindy & Neil!
