Last weekend Ryan and I had the pleasure of joining Gretchen and Mike to capture them joining not just their hands, but their lives in a simple, but elegant ceremony at the Rand-Bryan house in Garner, NC. Gretchen was a very laid back bride, happy to sip champagne and reminisce with her hilarious and supportive bridesmaids in their well appointed bridal suite. The elegant black and white theme with subtle color accents mirrored the couple’s down to earth vibe as guests blew bubbles from adorable little champagne bottles. The surrounding landscape and rustic farm buildings on the property were a fantastic backdrop for the bridal party photos and Gretchen channeled her inner vogue model for some fantastic- and often highly entertaining shots. The reception was in downtown Raleigh at Caffe Luna, an adorable cafe with a hipster vibe that was a terrific setting for an intimate gathering to celebrate Gretchen and Mike’s love. We had a great time with this beautiful couple and wish them all the happiness in the world!
