It feels good to start getting back into wedding season! Personally, I’ve always enjoyed winter weddings – it’s something about the cleanliness of the air, the bright blue skies, the slight sharpness the cold air has and after seeing the wedding photographs, this past weekend was no exception. I’ve been working with Amy & Rommie over the past few months on Prestonwood Wedding and their Raleigh restaraunt, Tobacco Road, food photography. It’s been a real pleasure getting to know them over the past few months and they sure know how to arrange a beautiful wedding!
Amy & Rommie’s wedding was held at the Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC. Their ceremony was held in the parlor with the sun setting in front of their beautiful floor to ceiling windows. Now, as a wedding photographer, let me say I both cringe and shout with glee in rooms like this. They are very, very difficult to photograph in but you can get some of the most breathtaking photography if you think a little outside the box. (Luckily, my mind left it’s box some time ago so it was natural for me) Sorry, back to the story. After the wedding ceremony and formal photos were over, they made their entrance down the beautiful staircase in the Prestonwood Ballroom to a very supportive group of close friends and family.
Both Amy & Rommie have very different origins so the reception was a wonderfully diverse grouping of music, dance and customs/traditions. It was certainly an evening full of dancing, celebrating and enjoying each others company! This is a wedding photographers dream of course and I would like to offer my sincerest congratulations to both Any & Rommie!!! I’d also like to thank them for going outside at midnight, in the freezing cold, for the last photograph (below). I’m betting Amy will never tell me she’s hot again. :)
On to the photos!
