After an absolutely amazing summer engagement session at Duke Gardens with these two last year I knew their spring wedding was going to be absolutely awesome. It was a perfect day. With prep for the bride at The Carolina Inn and the guys getting ready at the church we were all ready for the big event – Lauren & Justin are going to the chapel and they are going to get married!
I was so excited about shooting in the University UMC sanctuary – with it’s carolina blue walls and a whole mess of southern charm it was the perfect ceremony to start off the festivities! The courtyard was perfect for some portraits of the guys before the ceremony and the courtyard of the Carolina Inn was perfect for the ladies. We also stopped at a few of the different hallway sitting rooms for some portraits as well! The southern charm of the Carolina Inn is always something that I like to take in even when I am wandering the halls on wedding days.
Lauren & Justin said “i do” and then the celebration got into high gear! Stay tuned for Part II of this beautiful Chapel Hill, NC wedding which is full of portraits and the party to end all parties!
