Crabtree Marriott | Raleigh NC Wedding Venue

Allison and Alex’s wedding was held at the Crabtree Marriott wedding venue in Raleigh,NC. This was my first time photographing the Marriott venue and I must say I fell in love.  I loved the light in the ceiling and also the white curtains and lighting behind the bridal table. I was honored to be recognized by the AGWPJAfor a reception image from this wedding that placed 10th in the world, wooohoooo. The image is of the silouhetted bridal party with their heads bowed in prayer. I normally do not take pictures during prayers but this was a great moment but done in a totally creative manner. Here was the comment left by the judge  “The wedding party looks like trophies lined up on a shelf – a strong linear composition supports the partially silhouetted figures. Furthermore, if you look closely – there in the middle just above that wedding cake – you’ll find a moment, as the bride looks at her uniformed groom.”
