Kathryn & Chris

We first met Chris and Kathryn over Skype when they were living in Oregon. They knew they wanted to get married in Raleigh, NC so they entrusted some of the venue and vendor selections to their close family member who live in town. We took pictures of their rehearsal dinner at Second Empire  in lieu of an engagement session, and the evening was full of love and heartfelt thanks for all the effort that went into planning their wedding from across the country. Kathryn and Chris have such a supportive group of family and friends who's love for them was evident during the wedding day, from the excitement of seeing Kathryn in her wedding dress for the first time to the funny and sincere toasts given to them at the reception. They know how to through a party too! They entertained their guests with a fun couples' trivia version of the shoe game, laughed their way around the venue in a dance train which then turned into a dance off circle! Kathryn and Chris celebrated their love together and with those closest to them, we hope they continue making more of these happy memories!

About the Couple

How did you two meet? How long have you been together?

We met while working at a previous job. Chris was full time and Kathryn was an intern in his branch. We didn't start dating until after the second year of knowing each other. We have formally been together for almost 4 years.
