Thanks for stopping by the blog! I'm Whitney and my husband, Romain, and I are a wedding photography team based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. We are excited to share our recent work and a little peek into our lives!
We have all heard the saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” and that’s exactly what Katie and Luke did on their wedding day. Hurricane Matthew loomed over us, but that didn’t stop these two from tying the knot! They had a beautiful day celebrating their love with their friends and family and the hurricane didn’t seem to phase them one bit!
One of my favorite details is that Katie’s dress and veil were her mother’s. What a wonderful thing to pass down to your daughter! This wedding had so many lovely details and a lot of them where creations by Katie, her mother and their family and friends. The venue was rustic and cozy, draped with market lights. It didn’t need much decoration, just accents of greenery and touches of gold. There was a lovely brunch, mimosas and bloody marys and many choices for desserts.
After all the festivities at the Cookery, the party wasn’t over yet! They moved to the covered area of the Durham farmer’s market and had a picnic of sorts, complete with a food truck and corn hole!
Katie’s advice to future brides:
“Don’t feel obligated to do all of the ‘wedding’ things. Make the day yours by including elements that are important to you and your partner and be sure to leave time for yourself to enjoy it…and to eat! :)”
I have absolutely loved photographing Katie and Luke. There is this energy between them that lights up every picture I take. I am so honored that they let us capture their big day! Congratulations to Katie and Luke!
