Raleigh Wedding Photography: Heather and Derek

Another beautiful autumnal wedding for McCardell Photography! Jonathan and Judy headed out to Raleigh for Heather and Derek's nuptials at Montague Pond. It was an intimate lakeside ceremony and the reception was held in a clear tent, allowing all the vibrant fall colors come though. Check out the good times!

Virginia wedding photography: Heather and Dshamal

Last week, Renee drove to Bassett, Virginia to photograph Heather and Dshamal's vintage-style nuptials. Don't get us wrong, all weddings are great, but this one had so many personal touches, Renee was kind of freaking out. It was just SO vintage, so one-of-a-kind, she couldn't help but mentally blog it as it happened. Here is the highlight reel from the big day.

The dashing pair...
