Lori & James | Museum of Natural Science Wedding

Lori & James, much like all of my wedding photography clients, wanted a wedding day that was special, unique and inclusive of all the things they love.  Well guys, I can honestly say – mission accomplished!  Lori & James decided to have their wedding ceremony not in a church but at the beautiful Lake Crabtree just outside of Cary, NC.  Their wedding reception was held at the beautiful and unique Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh.

James and Lori met during a (I believe) bike ride.  Now I am sure it was a triathlon, trail course or something much more extreme then a “bike ride” but, well, it’s my blog so I’ll keep it simple here.   Anyway, the point is that as we all arrived at Lake Crabtree for the wedding ceremony, it was only fitting that an organized “ride” was going on that day.  So the park was full of families on their bikes getting ready for the event.  It was a very bright and sunny fall afternoon and you honestly could not have ordered any better weather for this.  James & Lori traded their nuptials as the sun set behind them on the water.  We had a really gorgeous sunset after the ceremony and I used that to our fullest advantage and got some stunning portraits (one of which is going into my ad this year).  We left shortly after to head over to the Museum of Natural Sciences.

Once we arrived at the Museum, I was treated (yes, I don’t say treated very often) to an absolutely GORGEOUS reception.  Greg with Joe Bunn DJ Company was warming up the crowd and the food, Cake and Flowers were stunning and so fitting of the Museum of Natural Sciences layout and decor.  After the cake cutting dancing and celebrating, I stole the couple for a few short moments to play on the AWESOME escalator that is inside the museum…  I don’t get many opportunities like that and I really loved the result.

After the wedding reception was over, Lori & James hopped in a waiting pedicab and rode off towards the Capital building.  I want to extend my most heartfelt congratulations to you both.  Thank you for allowing me to capture and share your truly unique day!  As always, here are a few photos!
