Brier Creek Country Club | Ashley & David

I was really excited about Ashley & David’s wedding.  We had captured a really cool engagement session in downtown Raleigh and after getting past that first 5 minutes of shock of being photographed (which everyone has), we really meshed well and got, in my opinion, some beautiful work with them.  On top of their e-session, they were having a Brier Creek Country Club wedding – a location I had not yet photographed so was thrilled with having the opportunity to photograph there.

We started out the day at the Embassy Suites in the Brier Creek shopping center where Ashley and her bridesmaids were getting their hair & makeup done.  The rooms at the Embassy suites are really cool with both modern colors and fixtures.  The downside is I always struggle with finding a good place in the room to get a good dress shot.  Well, necessity is also the mother of creativity so I simply took the dress from the room and with a little help, got what I think is a really cool dress shot.   From the hotel we drove over to the Brier Creek Country Club where Ashley used the locker room for the golf club to continue getting dressed.  I already knew the locker room was fitting of a country club but, honestly, I was blown away with how nice it really was.  After Ashley was dressed we went upstairs to go work with the guys a bit and pray the cloudy skies away.

As it came time for the ceremony, it was obvious that, well, the skies were not going to cooperate but, as always, Joy, a wedding planner (and owner)  from A Joyful Occasion, had arranged for a wonderful indoor location as well, just in case.  The wedding, even though it was indoors, was gorgeous and very fitting for such a beautiful venue.  Of course, during the ceremony the rain stopped and we returned to cloudiness which, as a photographer, makes me very happy as you can really manipulate the light on a cloudy day.  After our couples portraits, we headed into the reception hall where DJ Joe Bunn was gearing up to burn the house down, as usual.

As the reception waned down, I took a peek outside to see a gorgeous white convertible Jaguar (not sure of the year, but it was probably an early 90’s model) waiting for the happy couple to exit thru a shower of rose pedals and make their getaway.  Even though we had a little rain, the day made for an absolutely beautiful late spring wedding.

I want to thank Ashley, David & their families for allowing me in to document such a special and intimate day for you.  I’ve included a small assortment of some of my favorite photos and moments from your wedding day.
