Matthews House Wedding ~ Our Newest Line of Wedding Albums

We are so excited to share our newest wedding album line featuring Alison and Brian’s Matthews House wedding!

I photographed this beautiful wedding with my good friend and fellow photographer, Leslie Mills. We picked Alison and Brian’s Spring wedding at the Matthews House, in Cary because we were moved by the vibrant expressions of our couple, their warm family and dear friends. Our collaboration made this one of our favorite works of the year! Our couple was absolutely adorable. Brian never seemed to take his eyes off Alison and his affections were received with all of the grace and sweetness only a new bride so joyfully reciprocates. The following are a few of our favorite pages (and yes, this is the album we include in all of our Wedding Collections).

If you are interested in viewing the full album view our slideshow.

Bridesmaids at the Matthews HouseWe love the backdrop both inside and out of this historic front entrance for our wedding couples’ portraits and candid wedding photos. We have so much fun designing more award-winning albums with our elegant story-telling images. And this Spring light is especially lovely in the afternoon as it shines across the Estate’s front entrance in a way which adds romance and drama to our couples portraits with a gorgeous yellow back glow.

Cary wedding venue at the Matthews HosueReception at the Matthews HouseWe love the reception hall for our wedding couples and families as it is always cool, seats plenty of guests and has the perfect layout for buffet lines as well as a huge dance floor. Guests are always cared for here and we have never ever heard a complaint. This National Landmark is centrally located while feeling entirely secluded and private within its vintage past, yet up to date with A/C, beautifully renovated baths and suites and full of that Southern Charm reflected in every attendant present.
