Natalie and Matt: Married - Meredith College Jones Chapel



Natalie and Matt were married on January 3rd in Raleigh. It was SUCH a great wedding for us to kick off 2009 with! The ceremony took place at in the chapel on Meredith College's campus, which actually reminded me a lot of Charlotte's Belk Chapel - the big windows let in a ton of light.

Also beautiful was the room that Natalie and her girls got ready in, which in my opinion, really does make all the difference for these type of photos.



I love love loved her dress!



I am a BIG sucker for peonies - my jaw about hit the floor when I saw her bouquet.



I always love it when my brides take their time to slip into their dress and put on their jewelry/shoes. It was really nice to watch Natalie soaking in every moment.



I'm sorry, but this girl is CRAZY pretty.



Across the way, Geoff was over hanging with Matt and the guys as they got dressed before heading out for some pictures.







Seriously?????





For January, it really wasn't terribly cold, so we opted to take the girls outside for a few shots prior to the ceremony.













They were a fun and crazy group.







Whenever we first arrive to a wedding, we will always scout to what our options are for bridal party/couple pictures - when I saw these hedges, I really wanted to use them....lovin' the clean lines and color.



This one has a different look and feel then most of our work, but something about it makes me REALLY like it.





So hot.







And one more quick shot in the elevator before heading up to the reception.



As I made my way around the reception, I was floored by all of the details there were to shoot - everything was planned so thoughtfully and coordinated so well.









Natalie's grandma was cracking me up when she ran out to the dance floor, grabbed Natalie and went at it.



Congratulations to you guys and thank you for allowing us into your special day. Many blessings for your marriage!

I think there was a face in the picture in the church that was looking for some memories in the face of the groom.
Great work ...
