Hey there!

Anne + Nick | Catholic Wedding | Shady Wagon Farm, NC

You might remember Anne and Nick from their Beautiful downtown Cary engagement session. That day was burning hot, but they were such good sports.

Well luckily for them, their wedding day was perfect in basically every way! From the weather to the decor to actually being on time (an amazing thing for weddings!) Everything ran so so smoothly.

Anne got ready at Shady Wagon Farm with her bridesmaids and mother. Nick and his side of the bridal party got ready in their home and we took photos in Downtown Cary right before the ceremony! (They also bought me and my second shooter Emma lunch which was the sweetest thing 😊).

The ceremony was held at St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church. It was a beautiful ceremony with so much joy (and a few tears!)

After that, we went back to Shady Wagon Farm for the reception. The reception was so fun and between dancing and yard games there was something for everyone. 

The whole day was gorgeous and Anne and Nick were amazing to work with. Everyone was so relaxed and the vendor team worked like a dream. 

Once again I’m sad this journey is over because I really did enjoy working with this amazing couple. I can’t wait to deliver their full gallery, but here’s a sneak peek at what’s to come!
