hi there! welcome to a sweet little preview of sarah and josh’s recent morning wedding in wake forest, nc.  i had the pleasure of shooting sarah’s sister’s wedding a couple years ago (hi, jenny and cad!) and really enjoyed getting to see their family again!

so…where to start? so much to say about this day!… Sarah is an artist; she owns and operates Bella Joviality Stationery and designed the stationery suite, all the signage and the favors (so cute!).  her artful touch was all over – the ceremony, the place settings, the lawn games – ALL the details and thought sarah put into making this such a memorable and beautiful day.  the rain waited until after the ceremony (yay!) and showed up for a bit of the reception, but it didn’t dampen the crowd’s spirits….such a great bunch! The music was incredible thanks to the patrick rock band…two guys with guitars have to be pretty talented to entertain a tent full of people, and they did!! This venue is a little gem in the raleigh area – the sutherland – if you’re getting married in the triangle, it’s absolutely worth a look! Oh, and HOW could i forget?!….their “getaway” car…a bright red ferrari! such a unique day – it was truly yours, sarah and josh! congratulations and hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon out west!!

hugs, m
