The Oaks at Salem Raleigh Wedding Photographer
Ahhh!! Our first big wedding of the spring season and we sure did start off with a good one!! I’m so excited to share Laura and Jim’s wedding day with y’all and I think I’ve fallen even MORE in love with The Oaks at Salem – if that is even possible! Gracious do I LOVE this venue!
Laura and Jim are increidble people – you may remember them from their engagement shoot we did a few months ago in downtown Apex! They are both optometrist living in West Seneca, New York and traveled back to Laura’s hometown for their big wedding day! Laura grew up in Cary and later went on to school at Appalachian. After completing her undergrad, she decided to pursue a career in optometry and attended New England College of Optometry where she and Jim met! Jim and Laura both have wonderful families which they are extremely close to, so making the decision between NY or NC was no easy feat! Jim’s father own’s an optometry practice, so after they both earned their doctorates, they decided that was the place for them. We are so glad you decided to host your wedding day in North Carolina and Bill and I loved every minute of working with y’all!!
Gahhh, I love Laura’s ring so much! Her mothers beautiful jewels! A mighty fine bottle of Scotch I am told! 🙂 Laura!! You are absolutely stunning!! Such a classic beauty! Hellloooo Blue Eyes!!First Look with Dad…y’all know this has my heart! Dragging out the anticipation juuuuust a little longer!! 🙂 haha no peaking!!Gah. And this is what Jim does when he sees his bride. Smitten.Married!!
