Charlotte + John-Michael | Wedding at Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral

I had the wonderful honor of capturing Charlotte and John-Michael’s wedding last month! They are a cheerful and laid-back couple, and met at NC State University. They will be moving to Seattle (my hometown!) soon after the wedding because Charlotte will begin her Bioengineering graduate program at the University of Washington (my alma mater!).

There were so many sweet and tender moments throughout the day, and one of my favorites was documenting Charlotte and John-Michael praying together before the ceremony instead of doing a first look. The chapel they prayed in was absolutely beautiful, quiet, and peaceful, and was truly the perfect place to have a moment together! Another favorite moment of mine was taking group photos after the ceremony. We did an impromptu photo with all of their friends from NC State and doing the Wolfpack sign! It was such a fun photo to do!

We then headed to The Royal Banquet and Conference Center for the reception, and it was a lovely venue! The toasts from the wedding party were hilarious, and the dancing was incredible! For the sendoff, they decided to use bubbles. One of my favorite photos is one showing a bubble hovering right above Charlotte’s hand, and her expression is priceless!

Enjoy some of my favorite photos below, and BIG congrats to Charlotte and John-Michael!!!
