Sweet and Intimate Wedding for the Times

Intimate Restaurant Wedding by Morgan Caddell Photography in Downtown Raleigh

Shelby and Justin’s Raleigh wedding was the perfect intimate day they had hoped for. Raleigh holds a special place in their hearts as it was where they both grew up. The bride and groom actually both went to the same high school but they didn’t meet until college! They were first introduced to one another on Independence day and so it’s fitting that they chose to tie the knot in July. Raleigh wedding photographer Morgan Caddell was there on July 10, 2020 to document all of the beauty. Shelby’s graceful gown is from Gilded Bridal and the color palette is a vintage-inspired mauve, ivory and blush. All of this makes of the photos seem like they were taken straight from a fairytale.

Fairytale-Like Moments Captured by Morgan Caddell 

Amidst all of the festivities, Shelby’s favorite wedding memory is the photo session with Morgan Caddell Photography after the ceremony. She loves that she and Justin were able to share some moments just the two of them. Morgan beautifully captured the commitment that the couple had made to one another. 

Morgan’s style of photography pairs oh so well with the vintage French farmhouse theme of the wedding. The warm tones and vivid contrast of her images capture rich emotion. Morgan Caddell Photography has strong attention to detail and a true artistic touch. Shelby and Justin were impressed by her work as well as the quick turnaround. According to Shelby, “Anyone who is getting married has to hire Morgan!”
