On this day last year as Karen and Will prepared for their wedding, they also had to prepare for a surprise blanket of snow that covered Raleigh, NC. Needless to say this didn't deter them in the least. And from these wonderful pictures captured by photographer, Ashley Crutchfield, it is evident that all that snow wasn't about to dampen their joy either!
When I met with Karen, she had definite ideas about her wedding flowers. She wanted an informal hand tied sheaf in golden yellows and purples. Her favorite flower was the calla lily, other flowers included button mums, purple lisianthus, white stock and yellow solidago which gave the designs a garden appeal.
Her sweet flower girl carried a hand tied posy of lisianthus and stock.

Will and Karen were married at St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Raleigh, NC. It is such a beautiful setting with its arched beamed ceilings and rich wood paneling.
Here's the happy couple after saying "I do"
Karen's Mom, Lisa, gave me some ribbons from the bouquet that she carried on her wedding day to incorporate into the binding of her daughter's bouquet. It was such a sweet touch!
Karen and Will, I wish you all the best as you celebrate your 1st wedding anniversary!!!
