Luke and Emily were one of the most fun couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with as a wedding photographer! Their wedding day was full of so much laughter and I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen a bride and groom smile just as much or as big as they did on their special day. Emily and Luke were also so incredibly laid back, which I loved about them! I remember calling Emily the week before her wedding to go over all of the last minute details. I thanked her for taking some time our of her busy schedule to chat with me since I know how insane the week before a wedding can be, and she told me she already had everything done and was just sitting around at home in her pjs (Guys, I am so embarrassed to admit that I was up until 1:00am the night before my wedding cutting flowers out of my backyard in the dark and making the centerpieces for our tables. I do not suggest doing this, HA!)! The morning of their wedding was super relaxed and fun, and the rest of their day was no different!
Luke and Emily were married in front of all of their friends and family at St. Michael The Archangel church in Cary, then they threw the most stunning reception at the always gorgeous Merrimon-Wynne House in downtown Raleigh. I loved all of the thought they put into every little detail of their day, and it all came together so beautifully! Not to mention, Emily made one gorgeous bride (can we talk about her dress for a second?) and Luke made one handsome groom! Emily and Luke, thank you so much for letting me capture and share your love story with others! Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Kramer!
