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 her bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done in the gorgeous Glass Box that overlooks downtown Raleigh. We love photographing in this space with it's large windows and open floor plan, the bright, clean imagery we get out of this room makes it one of the best bridal suites in the area in our opinion! 

For their ceremony venue, they chose the historical landmark, All Saints Chapel in downtown Raleigh. The chapel has existed in Raleigh since 1875 and was preserved and restored in 2006. As one of the prettiest chapels in the Triangle, it has beautiful Gothic arches and stained glass windows. After the ceremony, the couple and their wedding party stayed in the heart of Raleigh and hosted their reception in rustic chic venue, The Stockroom at 230

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!
