winston-salem wedding: catherine+hunter 09.19.09

one of my new year's resolutions was (is!) to stay current with my blog postings in 2010. so before i get completely immersed into "wedding and portrait season" again, i must post the final two weddings of '09! one more down, one to go! stay tuned for opal and eric's october '09 wedding coming soon!

winston-salem was the location of catherine and hunter's wedding weekend festivities. their ceremony was held in a beautiful old church downtown and the reception was held nearby at graylyn estate. i remember catherine telling me that when she was a little girl, she had dreamed of having her wedding at graylyn, which is such a magical place.

this was my first time photographing a wedding there and i sure hope to get that opportunity again! graylyn is gorgeous, not to mention the cuisine was outstanding! dinner was served buffet-style, tables and chairs were setup both outside on the patio and indoors, allowing their 350 guests to move about freely. and i loved where they had the band and dance floor setup... over the pool in the pool house. what a great idea! and their band, gentlemen and their lady, was fabulous! they had all ages out on the dance floor....a great band can always keep the party going & that they did. what a fun wedding! i look forward to designing catherine and hunter's album soon!
