Claire and Kursad | All Saints Chapel Downtown Raleigh Wedding

I just love these two!  I have had the absolute pleasure of knowing Kursad for over 10 years and I can honestly say that he is one of the sweetest and kindest guys I know.  You will never meet someone who doesn't like him or can't get along with him.  We all knew that when he found someone to marry, that she was going to have to be pretty special and with Claire, well, I would say that he found her.  As you may remember this is not the first time I have photographed this awesome family but this is to date the most special moment that I have been able to photograph.  

You can only imagine how flattered and honored I was when both Claire and Kursad came to me to ask them to document their day.  No matter what, there was just no way that I could say no to these two (they can be very persuasive).  I am so very happy that I did and I hope that they love each picture as much as I do.  

Their love and happiness showed through every single picture.   They both looked gorgeous (honestly this must be the theme for this wedding) and every detail was just so perfect, elegant, and classic.  I loved every single detail!  I had such an amazing time getting to share this special day with two friends who are truly made for each other.  

Congrats Claire and Kursad, wishing you both only the very best- thank you for letting me in to document this moment for you guys.  Enjoy always.   XOXO

 I loved getting to spend some time with Kursad as he got ready- he was so excited and happy, you could just tell and see it all over his face <3
