Umstead Wedding: Jen and Shane

We’re so pleased to be sharing our final film for 2015 at the wonderful Umstead Hotel & Spa in Cary, NC. I’m a bit biased, but I always say we have the best couples and Jen and Shane were no exception. We were pleased to close out the year with this wonderful family and an all-star cast of wedding professionals. An amazing bookend to a very successful season.

Prestonwood Country Club: Melissa and Matt’s Wedding

Melissa and Matt’s day started at the Umstead in Cary where we started the day with bridal preparations and a fantastic first look with Melissa’s father and close family. The ceremony took place at the First United Methodist Church in downtown Cary followed by a classy reception at the Prestonwood Country Club. Prestonwood’s ballrooms and beautiful greens provided a wonderful backdrop for some of the intimate and candid moments of the day.

Melissa and Matt kept their word to keeping the tears back. Although there were still some incredibly emotional and joy filled moments throughout the day and the love between these two was undeniable.
