Jennifer + Jude | Raleigh NC
This tiny wedding in Raleigh was simply beautiful. Not because there was lots of stuff, fancy decor, or all the extra elements of a wedding day - but because the pure love between Jennifer and Jude radiated throughout every moment - from their first look and exchanging of gifts to the traditional Catholic ceremony at the most stunning of cathedrals to the union of a blended family. Even though the air was frigid on this winter afternoon, the heat between these two was undeniable. To finish off their day, they celebrated at a modest inn with emotional dances, dinner, and fellowship with their nearest and dearest. Being my first wedding of the year, it was the best way to kickoff 2022!
How did you meet? We both have the same hairstylist. Jude was getting a cut the same day as my best friend, and she saw Jude and thought he would be perfect for me. It took about 8 months, but we connected and met for coffee and then proceeded to go out the next two nights.
How did he propose? Jude took me to the coffee shop where we had our first date on our 1 year dating anniversary. He got down on one knee outside of the coffee shop. He had planned ahead and had his friends who are photographers take pictures of the moment.
For the Groom | What do you love most about your girl? That she's my best friend. Her love, understanding, sense of humor, and the communication that we have with each other.
For the Bride | What do you love most about your guy? I love how he loves me - he just knows how to make me feel loved and special.
