MSP Travels: Cary, North Carolina

We love to travel! Who doesn't, right? We've been lucky enough to capture weddings & engagements from San Francisco, to NYC, to Marrakesh, Morocco! Today's blog features a wedding that we travelled to in Cary, North Carolina - a gorgeous, quiet city close to the Research Triangle.

Sherif contacted us after seeing our work on Instagram, and we fell in love with him from the very first phone call. His kind, gracious personality came across in a way that let us know we HAD to be there to capture the celebration of his marriage to the lovely Daiana. 

We started the day at the gorgeous Umstead Hotel, as Sherif & Daiana prepared to see each other for their private First Glance!

And here is the gorgeous Daiana!

Daiana pairs perfectly with her other half - the amazing Sherif!

We decided to hold the couple's First Glance at the Umstead.  Absolutely perfect landscaping, beautiful water fountains, and long, winding bridged pathways all made it an ideal location for the big reveal!

**Confession: We were a tiny bit late to the First Glance because we didn't want to stop taking portraits. I mean, LOOK at these two! Can you blame us?!

Daiana & Sherif have one super-obvious thing in common: impeccable taste!

Finally, we'd reached our favorite moment of the entire wedding day.

I know! I know! The anticipation, right?! We're going to keep you on the edge of your seats before we continue our trip through the wedding day. The blog returns with MSP Travels: Sherif & Daiana Part 2. Stay tuned!
