Chapel Hill Carriage House Fiesta Wedding | Mike and Valerie

Val and Mike.. What pops in my head first is how well these two fit.  If you're lucky enough to know them personally you totally GET this.  Mike and I worked together at Apple for a couple of years before we both were able to jump off out of retail! I was super flattered and excited when he inquired about wedding photography and really couldn't wait to meet Val.  

We had such a great time shooting their save the dates and engagements earlier in the spring! 

These two were married back in early October and had the most gorgeous, colorful Fiesta Wedding at the Chapel Hill Carriage House on the outskirts of Chapel Hill.  I couldn't believe I didn't know about this place! It's just beautiful and everyone out there was amazing to work with!

Below you'll see such an emotional First Look that had us all in tears, an awesome alternative to the traditional cake cutting, these two did a cookie dunk! There's hula hooping, the cutest niece, and goats.. let me warn you.. Warning: there's an insane amount of farm animal photos.. I mean, Goats. I Die. 

So many wonderful vendors came together for their big day!
