Emily Kramer | Raleigh, North Carolina | Bridals


October 31, 2016

Emily and Luke were married this past weekend, so now that they are officially husband and wife, I can share Emily’s stunning bridal portraits with you here on the blog today! Even in September, North Carolina has a tendency to be a little bipolar with its weather. The day of Emily’s bridals, it was unseasonably hot. But despite the high temperatures outside, Emily looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding dress and even the heat couldn’t stop her from making the most of her bridal session at the gorgeous Merrimon-Wynne House in downtown Raleigh! I loved getting to spend some time with Emily and share in her excitement as her wedding day quickly approached. This girl made such a beautiful bride and I’m so honored to have been able to capture this exciting time in her and Luke’s life!

Congratulations again, Luke and Emily!

Venue: The Merrimon-Wynne House | Hair: Kelly Mercado of Blown Away Raleigh | Makeup: Stephanie Searor of Flawless Impressions | Dress: Hayley Paige from Hayden Olivia Bridal Boutique  | Bouquet: State Farmers Market | Earrings: Kate Spade | Shoes: J. Crew

    Establishing a Budget
    Prom dress shopping without having a specific budget in mind can lead to overspending, so it’s a good idea to enter in to the buying process with a set budget in mind. Remember: you need to factor in not only the cost of the dress, but also the cost of accessories. Deciding how much you’re willing to spend overall can help guide your buying decisions. If you have a unique body type, maybe you want to allocate more money to a custom-tailored dress. If you have your heart set on a certain pair of designer shoes, maybe you want to allocate a lower budget to your dress. How much you’re willing to spend on each item will determine the best place for you to shop.<a href="; title="online prom dresses australia">online prom dresses australia</a>
