It has been so much fun to reconnect with Amanda and get to know her husband, Nick, this past year during their engagement. Amanda and I went to high school with each other, and because we were a year apart, I didn’t have the chance to really get to know her too well during school. That certainly changed once Nick proposed to her in Chicago and she reached out to me about photographing her wedding! Since then, we’ve exchanged countless e-mails and text messages, she’s sent birthday cards and out of the blue gifts, and she’s always leaving me sweet, supportive blog comments.
Amanda & Nick’s wedding day was amazing. Photos, especially portraits of the two of them, were of great importrance to Amanda and Nick, so they allowed plenty of time in their wedding day schedule for photos with each other. I could have photographed the two of them on NC State’s campus for hours on end – they’re so cute together! After our time on campus, everyone gathered at the charming All Saint’s Chapel in Raleigh for their candlelit evening ceremony. The fun then continued at The Stockroom at 230 downtown, where Amanda & Nick’s guests ate delicious southern cuisine from Babymoon Cafe and spent the rest of the evening dancing to the tunes ofThe Dickens Band, Amanda & Nick’s favorite band.
