let's connect

Brooke & Eric got at The Sutherland just outside of Raleigh cinco de mayo weekend and it was GORGEOUS. I was so thrilled to be their wedding photographer! I knew after their engagement session that the wedding would be gorgeous. Holy smokes…this wedding blew my expectations out of the water!

Every single detail was beautiful. Brooke hand painted her invitation design and stationary and has Reaves Engraving print them. They’re simply gorgeous and so many people have been asking where they’re from! Brooke’s hand painted design went perfectly with her vibrant and colorful floral palette. Her florist, Embellished Blooms, always does great work. I just couldn’t believe how perfectly the flowers matched the stationary, details, etc. I worked with the best team of hand picked vendors and I think it made for the best day. Brooke and her wedding-planner-extraordinaire/mom Lisa did all the planning. The food was delicious. The dancing never stopped. The cake was incredible. Everything was wonderful. Eric and Brooke were lovely. It was a privilege to document this sweet couple celebrating in the company of their friends and family!
