John Brewer: Local Weather Forecaster

When our couples are unsure whether the weather will be clear enough to have the ceremony at the Courtyard or under the tent, John Brewer is working behind the scenes to help reassure them that they’re making the right decision.

John is an official National Weather Service Skywarn Storm Spotter and he provides The Oaks at Salem with updates even before our local forecasters at WRAL because he is watching specifically over our location here in Apex.

With our tent, you can wait until just 2 hours prior to the ceremony to transition the ceremony, and afterward its just a quick flip back to the layout for your reception!

At The Oaks, we’ve got you covered!

Hi! I’m Jennifer. I’m a wedding & portrait photographer based in Raleigh (but happy to travel!) I love working with couples who have a fun, relaxed and classic style and who are looking for the timelessness of lasting works of art. I always strive to photograph your authentic moments in a relaxed and joyful way.

Every photographer has a story about why they do this – and for me, it’s simple, I do this so that you will forever be able to remember how it felt the day you got married. I can’t imagine doing anything but this. I studied photography when film was still king and loved the process of each print being made by hand, one of a kind. When I switched to digital in 2005, my love of this honesty carried on, and I treat every wedding, every moment, as one of a kind work of art.

Always pursuing what is real, I seek to capture the whole meaning of your wedding day and not just the production. The connections that mean so much to you – the tear on your mom’s cheek as she adjusts your veil, the beaming smiles of your wedding party as you recite your vows, and your college best friend’s signature dance move, are the center of your wedding story and will be creatively documented.

Joy is at the center of all that I do, relaxed, honest emotion and quality, artistic results. I can’t wait for the opportunity to share your wedding day with you!
