Lynda & Joshua's Togolese & African American Wedding {Raleigh, NC}

Lynda & Joshua are a beautiful couple. I mean seriously, just gorgeous with amazing style. I had heart eyes for them from the moment I met them for our consultation! Check out how they slayed their engagement session here. It was a blessing to document this couple's sacred, heartwarming ceremony in at Joshua's church surrounded by their family and their friends. Their reception at the lovely River Ridge Golf Club incorporated American wedding traditions, but there is truly no celebration like a Togolese one! And even after all the dancing and a sweet exit surrounded by bubbles, the celebration was only on pause! I was invited back to Cary, NC for the bride & groom's Traditional ...

Lynda & Joshua's Togolese & African American Wedding {Raleigh, NC}

To say that I was excited to do a shoot at Duke Gardens is an understatement. If you've never visited this beautiful destination, do yourself a favor and take a trip over to Durham and stroll through the gardens. It is absolutely beautiful during any season! Now drop two beautiful souls in love in the middle of these gardens and what we have is pure magic!! Duke Gardens has special meaning for these lovebirds, as this is the place that Joshua chose to gather Lynda's family & friends and surprise her with a marriage proposal while a church friend serenaded them at the grand gazebo! How romantic!! After our time was complete in the gardens, we decided to visit the American Tobacco ...

Lynda & Joshua's Togolese & African American Wedding {Raleigh, NC}

Dana & Tristan had a sweet, Southern wedding on an easy Sunday morning last August and it was my pleasure to capture all the memorable moments. These college sweethearts (Go Heels!) are a joy to be around. Their laughter is infectious and their commitment is inspiring. The staff at Cross & Main was accommodating and the venue and surrounding areas oozed with southern charm. Their beautiful wedding was featured today over at the Borrowed & Blue Wedding Blog and I am pleased to share some images of their day here. VendorsCross & MainStrong Arm Baking Rocky Top CateringAGB MakeupMaze Florist
