INTERESTED IN WORKING WITH MIKKEL?
DON'T HESITATE TO REACH OUT.
Our love for Disney bonded us and I was onboard from the start. I love traveling – anywhere – and when a change of location moved their wedding the sea to Raleigh, North Carolina they asked if I still wanted to photograph their day…heck yes!!!
I truly believe everything happens for a reason. Their day was perfect – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I have a special place in my heart for small weddings. Their 30 person or so guest list was of family and friends who mattered most to them. While it took them a while to find a venue that was perfect for them, All Saints Chapel for their Ceremony and Second Empire restaurant for their reception were truly perfect. AND the best part? Shantelle and Andrew still had their dream getaway; they headed to Orlando hours after they said “I do” to enjoy a few days at Walt Disney World and aboard Disney Cruise Line.
Shantelle and I loved her pink garment bag and her hanger was unique in that not only did it have her new last name on it but also her wedding date.
Andrew’s sister, Liz, helped pin his boutonniere to his lapel. After Andrew opened a gift from his bride, it was time for their first look and some quality photo-taking time. Their ceremony was held at Raleigh’s historic All Saints Chapel; it was built in 1875 so it’s a true piece of local history.
I was incredibly impressed that Shantelle created this wonderful Mr. & Mrs. glittered sign for their sweetheart table. I always feel a connection to a crafty bride.
Congratulations, you two! I loved working with you!
