I can honestly say that I’ve been excited to photograph this wedding since the day Caitlin and Forrest booked me! I had the honor of capturing Caitlin and Forrest’s engagement session last summer and wedding day this past June at Melrose Knitting Mill in downtown Raleigh. Their day was one of my favorites! Perfect weather (minus a quick rain storm), beautiful wedding, and one very happy couple totally head over heels in love. I will never forget how big their smiles were during their first look. These two truly compliment each other perfectly! In fact, they both graduated from NCSU and currently work as CPAs. Caitlin and Forrest are both unbelievably kind, loving, warm, intelligent, and genuine.
This day was welcomed by family, friends, good southern food, and tasty drinks. Everything about Caitlin and Forrest’s day was beautiful, filled with love, faith, intentional details and a lot of fun surprises along the way. This wedding was full of vibrant purples and shades of lavender! I loved the purple infused florals, bridesmaids dresses, cake, and reception table decor. I admire brides are not afraid to add bold colors into their color palette. This various shade of purple was truly stunning.
Caitlin and Forrest, it was an honor to be a part of your beautiful wedding day and I wish you all the love & happiness in the world as you start your lives together as a married couple! I hope to see you both again very soon. Congrats again!
Big thanks to this awesome team of vendors!
