Casey + Dan | Outdoor Rose Garden Wedding

If I was to plan a big wedding celebration, it would probably be something similar to what Casey and Dan pulled off. Their wedding was brimming over with fun ideas. From her flower tiara to their Locopops popsicle truck, the vintage VW photo bus, their live wedding painter, and their beautiful outdoor setting at the Raleigh Municipal Rose Garden, it was just all around a really cool wedding to be a part of. I also have to give cred to their planner Whiskey and White for making everything so beautiful and to my friend Adam Brophy for shooting along with me. His photos are sprinkled in here as well.

This wedding was also my very first experience with a wedding crasher! I’m not sure if Casey and Dan even noticed him, but this random drunk guy rode into their reception on a bicycle, grabbed himself a handful of cake (literally- with his bare hands), and then unashamedly licked it off, yelled a few things out, and then rode off into the night. Adam and I were right there when he came up, so you’ll see some evidence of this crazy cat lower in the post. Honestly though, everyone was really having too good a time to be bothered by him. In my opinion, it just adds to the epic story of the night. It wouldn’t be a party worth crashing if it didn’t look amazing from the outside right?

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the pics from this beautiful North Carolina wedding. Congrats to you Casey and Dan!

“My husband and I couldn’t believe how lucky we got to have Shelley photograph our adventure elopement in South Iceland! She was easy to communicate with and so personable in person. I pretty much instantly felt comfortable working with her, even though I never got to meet her in person until the actual elopement day. My husband doesn’t comment on services very much, but he was so impressed with Shelley’s creativity and fearlessness in getting the best shots. She would sometimes be laying on the ground and get completely soaked by the waterfalls, and she would have us stand so close to the edge of a cliff and so close to the waterfalls. My husband got to see a sneak peek of a few shots on her camera, and his mouth literally dropped at how beautiful the photos were. We completely trusted her opinion on the stops we made in Iceland not only because she has been to Iceland before, but also because she just has that creative vision to know what looks good (her website/blog says it all). Another bonus is that she scouts the wedding ceremony area for you beforehand and chose our ceremony site, which we are so grateful for. It was intimate (away from the crowds), peaceful, and beautiful. If you and your partner are looking for someone who loves candid photos, dynamic photos with a lot of movement, and epic landscape photos, Shelley is the best photographer for that. We can’t recommend her enough!”- Google review. Nothing makes me happier than knowing my couples had a great time on their wedding day! ❤️❤️❤️
