This wedding celebration was so elegant and beautiful. North Ridge is the loveliest place for a classy and Southern North Carolina weddings – it is a long standing icon in the Raleigh area. I love that Ashley and Nathan chose this for their wedding venue because it is so meaningful to Ashley’s family. Ashley’s grandmother continues to be involved in all of the events after years of being a member at the club. It represents a wonderful community for their family! Not to mention, it fit perfectly with Ashley’s Southern and classic style.
This day was certainly a memorable one! I will never forget watching (and hearing) the thunderclouds roll in as the ceremony took place, and the raindrops that started to fall right after Ashley and Nathan kissed! They safely made it down the aisle, I took a few brief photos of them outside, then we all ran in to take cover. There have only been a few weddings I’ve photographed in my life that have poured like it did that day! Thankfully, everyone had a wonderful attitude and the guests quickly got to cover. It is always a sign of a mature and wonderful couple when rain doesn’t get in the way of a good time. Ashley and Nathan continued to dance and party as if nothing happened, and it was the most beautiful celebration!
