I hope y’all are ready for some portraits and a party! Lauren and Justin were married at the beautiful University UMC on Franklin Street in Downtown Chapel Hill recently and before we went back to the Carolina Inn for an epic reception in the Old Well Ballroom we did some portraits of the bridal party as well as the happy new Mr. and Mrs. in the rose garden next to the church as well as around the Carolina Inn. We had perfect weather and it was the perfect day for this couples’ long awaited nuptials.
The reception was absolutely stunning. I love the Old Well ballroom at the Carolina Inn and the staff there are always top notch. The bride even got involved by putting her own touch on the centerpieces for the reception and the cake was simple but stunning. There was lots of dancing as our DJ with Anything Music kept the party going and then a beautiful sparkler exit to spend the newlyweds off to their honeymoon in London!
It was awesome and beautiful and I wish Lauren and Justin all the best as they begin their married lives together!
