What a great wedding the Raleigh wedding of Jennifer and Peter was. It was truly a merging of two cultures. This was a wedding weekend full of tradition and family and we were so lucky to have been chosen to share in it with all of them.
We started the weekend with the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner. It was a rainy night but the weatherman was calling for a beautiful wedding day so the two rolled with the rainy November weather that Friday night.
Saturday arrived and what a complete change in weather. The sun was shining and the day had arrived for Jennifer and Peter to become man and wife! Rebecca met up with the ladies at the downtown Raleigh hotel that they were getting ready at and Annie met up with the boys at their home near the church.
The details were perfection. And as noted; Rebecca had a slight obsession with Jennifer’s shoes. She found the perfect place in the hall down from the ladies dressing room to photograph the shoes and some details.
The church was full of family and friends and Jennifer and Peter were a little untraditional in that Peter walked Jennifer down the isle. They had a first look immediately before walking down the isle. After the ceremony and some quick family portraits we had an exit from the church that was only delayed by the battery of the antique car that was to take the couple to the reception.
Once we all arrived there after a bit of a car shuffle – we did some portraits on the lawn of the capital building and then proceeded to the party at the Cardinal Club.
We had a great time dancing the night away and it also included a trandtional dance by Peter’s side of the family. We did whisk them away for some quick portraits in the middle of Fayetteville street that turned out great!
