Picture the sun setting over a meadow as you walk out with your new spouse towards a flock of geese that are settling down for the evening. This picture perfect story ACTUALLY happened at Victoria and Daniel’s The Meadows Raleigh wedding. This beautiful event was every fine art wedding photographer’s dream. The traditional Jewish ceremony followed by joyous reception was so very Victoria and Daniel.
We knew after meeting them at their engagement session that their love of the outdoors would make an appearance at their wedding and Amy of Plume Events seamlessly tied their love for nature throughout their wedding with incredible floral design and artful decor. This day was full of so much beauty.
Some of our favorite moments from this lovely celebration at The Meadows:
- Daniel emailed us the week prior to the wedding to tell us about the gift that he was going to give Victoria during their first look: the cluster ring that she had drooled over when they went antique shopping five years ago. Even though the ring he actually proposed with is gorgeous, she has always talked about that ring so Daniel put in WORK to track that beautiful thing down and re-proposed with it during their first look! Cue the tears.
- Their ceremony was so gorgeous, and their vows were unforgettable. We love when couples write their own vows and we’re pretty sure that Daniel and Victoria’s were so heartfelt that there wasn’t a dry eye out in the meadow — including ours!
- This was the first wedding where we photographed the Horah to kick off the reception! You’re going to have to see the photos below to see how fun it was!
- We made Victoria and Daniel a highlight video with the song from their processional that you can watch it below!
Victoria and Daniel, it is always such a joy to photograph two people who are so clearly in love and you two belong together. You have wonder in your eyes when you look at each other and we hope you never lose that! Thank you for trusting us with these wedding photos — we know that you will cherish them as you do each other for decades to come.
Thank you to this wonderful vendor team for making this fine art Jewish wedding such a success! We were thrilled to work with you all!
