A Rand-Bryan House Wedding

Savanna + Scott
Rand-Bryan House Wedding Photo

Savanna and Scott were wed last summer at the Rand-Bryan House. They truly couldn’t have picked a better venue for their intimate, garden-chic wedding. The Rand-Bryan House is a gorgeous 19th century home turned wedding venue located just outside of Raleigh. With rolling hills, beautifully landscaped gardens…and even a Christmas Tree farm – this historic home offers endless locations for portraits. Plus, the interior of the home is just as lovely with tons of natural light!

Savanna and Scott were introduced to one another through a family friend who thought they would be a perfect match. And he was right! Scott lit up every time he caught a glimpse of his stunning bride throughout the day. It was the cutest thing! But most importantly, his children seemed to adore her as well! It was such an honor to document Savanna + Scott’s wedding day. We’re so happy for these two, and wish them and their families all the best!

Rachel + Jeremy’s Rand-Bryan House Wedding in Garner, NC.

Every now and then we photograph a wedding where everything falls perfectly into place. The weather is beautiful, everything runs on time, and all of the couple’s loved ones are just as excited to celebrate with them as they are to be married. Rachel and Jeremy’s wedding was one these perfect weddings.

This was the first wedding we’ve photographed at the Rand-Bryan House…and it instantly became one of our favorite Raleigh-area venues. The Rand-Bryan House is a cozy, historic home located in Garner (~15 minutes outside of Raleigh.) With a gorgeous little meadow on one side and a Christmas tree farm on the other, it’s a photographer’s dream! It was also the perfect setting for Rachel + Jeremy’s art-inspired love day.
I asked Ashley for a description of the wedding day while writing this post, and she instantly responded with: ‘ boho-chic wedding.’ It took some googling, but I think she was right on. From the 1,000 origami cranes to watercolor table decor, their art-inspired decor fit right in.

I really enjoyed their take on the unity tradition by combining their favorite colors into a painting. A unity canvas is a pretty awesome keepsake.

Jeremy built their wedding arbor, while Rachel filled it with handmade dreamcatchers crafted from bits of lace and shells.
A gift from Jeremy, so that Rachel “always has something to hang her dreams on.”

R + J also spent the months leading up to their wedding day, folding 1,000 paper cranes for their reception decor.
This is called sembazuru, a Japanese tradition that symbolizes the patience and trust necessary to sustain a happy marriage. Cranes are not only a symbol for luck, but for longevity as it is believed that the crane lives 1,000 years.
