Whitney and Colby are MARRIED!!! These two are the kindest people with the biggest hearts, and I have LOVED getting to know them both over the last year as their friend and photographer. Ever since my first phone call with Whitney about her wedding day, I knew we were going to be great friends and I was so excited to capture their wedding day. Instead of your traditional southern evening wedding day, Whitney and Colby had a Sunday Brunch wedding hosted at the classic Merrimon-Wynne House in Raleigh.
With a nod to her Italian family, they incorporated blue, white, and yellows throughout the wedding day. There were lemons incorporated in the decorations in honor of her grandmother, and it reminded me of the coast in Italy! One of their family traditions is toasting with limoncello, so they celebrated with everyone at their wedding by serving limoncello.
Whitney and Colby have been together for about two and a half years now, and met RIGHT before the pandemic began. What a time to start dating! Ever since they started dating, they have been inseparable. They are absolutely perfect for one another. I knew this from the moment I met them at their engagement session, and their family and friends confirmed it even more when they spoke such kind words during their toasts. They have the biggest hearts, and their wedding day was truly centered around family.
Congratulations Whitney and Colby!!! Your brunch wedding day at Merrimon-Wynne was absolutely perfect, and I am so excited for you both to venture into this exciting new stage of your life as newlyweds! I hope you both are enjoying your honeymoon in Mexico, but for now here is a small preview of the best day ever! Thank you so much for having me there to capture it!
