We are so thankful to have been able to spend this day shooting Joel & Kell’s Garden on Millbrook wedding!
Joel & Kelly are two of the most fun and amazing people we know! We met Joel at Tarah & James’ wedding and from there we became great friends and hoped that we would be shooting Joel’s wedding. Joel is one of the coolest guys I know and although he uses a lot of hair product, he looks super swaggy! When we saw that him and Kelly were in a relationship we were crazy excited for them and then they got engaged in Dubai… yea, Dubia! It was really awesome! They both live in Ohio but she is from Raleigh so when they contacted us about their wedding, we were pumped! They are two people that have a strong love for the Lord and for other people and it is clear! They are a huge encouragement to us and to be around them and their family and friends, it was just more validation to their amazing character and just plain awesomeness!
The Garden on Millbrook Wedding Day
The guys got ready at a historical house in Raleigh that they got off of AirBNB and the girls got ready at her brothers house. After they got ready, they made their way over to Fairmont United Methodist Church for the ceremony. Their ceremony was at a small beautiful church and was full of emotion. The look on Joel’s face when she walked down the aisle was seriously priceless! After we went to the Raleigh State Capitol building to get pictures of their bridesmaids and them but not without rolling in style! They rented a hummer limo and it was ballin!
The Garden on Millbrook Wedding Reception
This reception hall was beautiful! It had high ceilings with beautiful arches and an incredible chandelier that hung down and made for an amazing backdrop for dances! They came in with style through the arches and came right into the dances. As they danced you could see the beautiful reflection of Kelly’s dress on the reflective black floor it was stunning. The dances were fun, her father and her started off with a little Michael Jackson choreographed dance and all of the guys in her family, including Joel, got to dance with her grandma! It was special! After, the night ended with an amazing sparkler exit!
