Intimate Raleigh Wedding

St. Mark’s Chapel

Raleigh, NC

Kurt + Madelyn

Kurt and Madelyn’s day was so perfect! They knew from the very beginning they wanted to keep their wedding intimate and special and they absolutely nailed it. They invited us to this gorgeous old home they airbnb’d (is that a verb?) while they got ready. We made all the details + getting ready magic happen and then hopped in the car over the Mordecai Park for the ceremony. I love this little church on the property - warm, worn wooden floors and cream walls, a simple altar with light filtering in the windows. Yes please! With their family and few very close friends present they said their vows in St. Mark’s Chapel. After their ceremony we stole the couple away into the gardens for some portraits, omg all the gorgeous backlight! They are so sweet together and made our jobs a breeze while we snapped away. They spent the afternoon playing games and eating cake in park with their guests, couldn’t ask for a better end to the best day.
