Wedding Story: Heather and Travis

DRT_5556 copy

We had a busy holiday weekend- two weddings and a family shoot!  David forced me to take Monday off... I only got caught answering email one time before I took him seriously and rested.  Saturday we got to hang out with Heather and Travis- and all their fabulous people- to shoot their beautiful ceremony at St. Marks Methodist Church in Raleigh that was followed by a fabulous reception at MacGregor Downs Country Club in Cary.  I've got lots to show you so let's jump in!

I don't know how things were in Travis' hotel room, but the ladies' hotel room was packed full of family and friends that love Heather.

Travis' people were equally as impressive in how much they adore this guy.

I had seen a ringbearer carry a nest before on another photographer's blog and 
ADORED the idea.  It was fun to actually see someone do it!

So sometimes the bride and groom need a little sip of something to carry them over till the party gets started.  It just so happens that there is a wine that Harris Teeter carries that is Heather and Travis' last names- Heather Murphy and travis Goode!!

David grabbed this shot that I feel should be an ad for SOMETHING during the cocktail hour.

Sweet first dance...

... followed by an amazing medley of every popular dance song ever.  
And these two knew how to work it.

There were some suspicious cake-stalkers trying to get in on the action...
