kate + frank - castle mcculloch wedding

Although Kate & Frank live in Florida, they chose to have a destination wedding in North Carolina.  They decided on a unique one-of-a-kind venue called Castle McCulloch as its very close to where Frank's mother & stepfather live.  I met with Kate and Frank for the first time in the fall of 2013 when they made another trip up this way. We got together at the Bog Garden in Greensboro for their engagement session. We had such an enjoyable time together - I just knew we would again on their wedding day 6 months later. Frank has such a whacky, but fun sense of humor & is entertaining to be around! Kate is quiet and more reserved, with a sweet personality. Which I think makes them perfect together!

The day of their June wedding, it was relatively cool for summer in the south, however somewhat humid. The couple chose to have their ceremony inside the Great Hall, which always makes a big impact at this particular venue. With Kate walking around the second level wrap-around balcony and down the long flight of stairs, she truly made her grand entrance! To see how Frank looked at her for the first time was quite touching - you can tell he is truly in love with her. After the beautiful candlelit ceremony, cocktails were served outside on the patio for the guests to enjoy, while Jenny & I photographed the wedding party & families. The reception was immediately following in the Great Hall with dinner, dancing, cake, and a super fun time by all!
