Emily and Durk had a beautiful fall wedding day at the Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral in downtown Raleigh and The Meadows. From the moment I walked into the Aerie house at the meadows to meet everyone, I felt so incredibly welcomed by Emily’s family and amazing bridal party. Their entire wedding day felt so joyful, peaceful and FUN at the same time.
The wedding party got ready in separate houses at The Meadows before heading over to the Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral. This was my first wedding ceremony at this cathedral and it was breathtakingly beautiful! It’s the largest ceremony sites I’ve worked in before and I love the space: white walls and amazing window light! It was such a beautiful ceremony! I know it was so important and meaningful to them to be married here.
After the wedding ceremony, Durk and Emily went around the Cathedral taking bride and groom portraits. We got so many cute photos of them, and one of my favorites from the day is them smiling leaving out the church doors together! Then before starting a delayed cocktail hour, we headed over to the meadows to finish some celebratory group photos with their wedding party. This is always one of the most fun parts of the day to me when you have all your friends together! The weather was perfect for us on this late October wedding day, and the fall colors were at their peak for us, making it the perfect backdrop!
Emily and Durk, congratulations on your marriage! I am so thrilled for you both and I’m so happy I got to be a part of the beginning of the rest of your lives together. I loved getting to meet all your friends and family and celebrate you both! Thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer!!
