Cardinal Club Weddings | Raleigh Wedding Photographers | Christina + Tim

Although I often travel worldwide to photograph destination weddings, it’s sometimes the local ones right here in Raleigh that prove to be the most memorable to me. I have a lot of photos to share from this event and can honestly say that my memories from Christina and Tim’s wedding at The Cardinal Club will be with me for a long time.

There’s a good reason for this too. It comes down to the people. No matter where your wedding venue is or how many details you add to your celebration there is nothing that can replace a bride and groom that are madly in love with each other and friends and family that are there to celebrate this fact. I believe it’s the core to every successful wedding and always speaks volumes in the resulting photographs.

For anyone reading this… I consider it an honor to share these fleeting moments with you. I hope they evoke a few smiles, laughs and tears as you look through this album. ALSO… be sure not to miss their FIRST LOOK PHOTOS from Portofino.

“Coolest… bride… ever…!” Well… she was trying to stay cool anyways. Haha!

The kids dared mom to do this…

Awesome wedding officiant Chris Cockerham with high energy. A perfect fit for the couple and appreciated by many!

Can I get two thumbs up for this photo of the groom right after everything was official!?! LOVE IT!

The grooms parents now share their wedding date with the couple. We made sure to take a nice portrait of just them in celebration of the many wonderful years they’ve been together.

A sweet moment in which the bride and groom tear up during Christina’s father’s toast.

I have no idea what these kids were up to but I happened to be in the right place at the right time to capture their antics.

I’m not sure what exactly was happening here but I really like this photo.

Jerry Thompson of Joe Bunn DJs rocked the tunes! This was my first time working with him and I really enjoyed it!

Was this a chugging contest at some point? I’ll have to get the story later!
