The Cloth Mill Wedding: Morgan + Calvin

Updated: Mar 3

For this beautiful wedding day, our photography adventures took us to Hillsborough, NC! We were blessed with the opportunity to connect with Morgan and Calvin while Calvin (with the help of his super sweet mother in law Sherry) was planning his surprise proposal to Morgan at The Biltmore nearly two years ago! As if proposing at The Biltmore wasn’t romantic enough, Calvin totally went the extra mile to make sure everything was just right opting for a horse and carriage ride around bass pond before getting down on one knee to stain his khakis (you didn’t think we’d remember did you? lol). As you probably guessed, Morgan said yes! After spending a short time with them for a little impromptu engagement session, you couldn’t help but be excited for these two! They were as sweet as they come and the absolute cutest!

When they told us we would be shooting their wedding, we were stoked! We had a blast with them in such a short time so we just knew getting to spend an entire day with them would be so special. Their venue was The Cloth Mill at Eno River, just outside of Raleigh. Talk…about…awesome! We’ve grown to love the style of a modern industrial wedding venue and The Cloth Mill was filled with so much character inside and out! It was fresh, timeless, and classy, perfect for Morgan and Calvin!

They opted too forego a first look in place for having Calvin see her walk down the aisle for the first time. While we had both seen happy tears earlier in the day, this was definitely the most memorable! The excitement was written all over both of their faces and before you knew it, these two said I do!

If you thought the beginning of this blog was fun, keep scrolling! Saying Calvin, Morgan, and their friends & families know how to get down would be an understatement! This wasn’t your typical dance floor with the same 8 people dancing all night while everyone sits around. Everyone from the bride and groom to grandma was bringing the party and if there wasn’t a bubble exit on the schedule, we’re pretty sure they would’ve went all night!
