The Bradford is one of my absolute favorite wedding venues to shoot at. Their property is like stepping onto a European estate, but on the outskirts of Raleigh, North Carolina. Naturally, a venue as stunning as this made the perfect backdrop for Hannah and Jason’s fairytale wedding day.
Hannah and Jason are high school sweethearts and have been together for over 8 years, which made their big day all the more special. From their emotional first look to their first dance to “Tuesdays” by Jake Scott, their love for one another shined throughout the entire day. The couple and their families radiated joy all day long, even despite the 102 degree weather!
Hannah works as an interior designer and is the queen of details, so I just knew that this day was going to be well planned and beautiful in every way, and it did not disappoint! I had so much fun playing around with all of the bridal details and invitations; they were a photographer’s dream!
Jason and Hannah ended the night with an outfit change, which was such a unique way to add a flair to their reception. The couple danced the night away for the first time as husband and wife!
Congratulations to the Patricks!

… for how you felt and not for how you were posed
…for the joy of saying I do, and not for the stress of wedding planning
…for the romantic moments and heartfelt good wishes
Your wedding will bring some of the most transformational moments of your life, moments so important that they can never be recreated…
But they can be relived in exquisite detail.
