It never fails to amaze me how much the right venue can do for a wedding (and its photographs)… I had the pleasure of shooting Wei & Thanh’s wedding a few weeks ago, which took place in two different cities – that was a first for me. We spent the morning in Laurinburg for the tea ceremony, and then flocked two hours north for the reception at the Highgrove Estate near Raleigh, NC.
To say the Highgrove Estate was one of the most beautiful venues I’ve ever photographed would be an understatement. It was enveloped in a magnificent staircase, dazzling chandeliers, and beautiful greenery, which was well beyond my expectations and so gratifying to shoot. Though the wedding was small and intimate, don’t underestimate the energy – this crowd knew how to have fun!
