meredith_bridals-1 Meredith + Brett got married yesterday! I was beyond blessed and honored to take her bridal portraits back in May and be a part of her special day since Jerry + I weren't going to be able to make it to her wedding at the Cotton Room in Durham. The pictures I've seen so far have been beautiful, Meredith! Her bridal session was just a taste of the beautiful Christian ceremony + reception awaiting her and her new husband. We met out at Meredith College in Raleigh, Meredith's alma mater (a lot of Meredith going on!), just in time to soak up the golden light radiating through the trees. Meredith is a natural, Southern beauty and her groom is one lucky man! We shot all around campus in the amphitheater, the magnolia trees, the chapel, and the gardens surrounding the chapel to give Meredith ethereal and gorgeous bridal portraits. Her dress is decadent--luscious silk with a silver + ivory double lace overlay, rhinestone buttons down her entire back and ornate jewels that cinch her waist and drape across the sweetheart neckline. Her shoes were a fun pop of robin's egg blue and her coral + pink bouquet epitomize Meredith's outgoing and bubbly personality (check out the goofy photos at the end of the post)!

Meredith, you made a beautiful bride and Jerry + I wish you and Brett all the happiness and love in the world as you embark on this new chapter of life! Have a great honeymoon!
