Raleigh, NC | Micro Wedding | Zak + Morgan

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the blog.

My love photography only continues to grow as I photograph more and more weddings. During a wedding, there is so much excitement and emotion in the air that I get to experience and capture. The Bride and Groom spent so thought and planning in the details, I was so excited to document each and every part.

Intimate Micro Ceremony

The Roths had a small, intimate wedding that was at their friend’s place. Although they originally planned to have it elsewhere and found out venue plans fell through, this ended up being the best decision because of how happy they were with everything in the end. The sun shone brightly and the sky was clear as we gathered to witness a couple's love in its purest form. The bride wore an elegant gown with just enough detail, topped off by her veil of lace that shimmered in the light; while standing next to our groom who looked dapper in his suit. They exchanged vows accompanied by family members on each side, before exchanging their rings- it felt like they were making promises for eternity amidst garden greenery when suddenly there was music! Guests swayed and danced under strings of lights late into the night.

The Weather Was Perfect

The day couldn't have been more perfect: sunny with brilliant skies reflecting greens from trees surrounding us all throughout this backyard lawn party vibe were. The reception was at Ashley’s (the bride’s sister’s) back yard and was catered by Neomonde.

The couple smiled as they stomped on the wine glasses for the Jewish wedding tradition. They were also highly entertained that the officiant didn’t realize that’s what was going to happen to the glasses and had been taking great care to make sure they weren’t harmed. Imagine their surprise when Zak stomped on the glasses.

When I asked Morgan what her favorite part of the wedding was, she said:

“The first look—it was so special and perfect, and the pictures absolutely capture the magic.”

The bride and groom were beaming as they exchanged vows in front of their family and friends who love them.

Okay, enough talk. Check out this gorgeous, intimate wedding. 


The Bride's Advice

Morgan’s advice for couples planning their special day is “take it as it comes—the important thing is the love that you share and the commitment you’re making. The rest is just an added bonus.”

The only thing she wishes she’d done differently is eaten more on her wedding day!
