“There is nothing more magical than standing in front of all of your friends and family in the presence of the Lord and saying, “I DO!” This by far was the most important part of the day, and why we had the people that supported us and shaped us throughout our lives there to celebrate. We were there to begin our covenant with God, and we were blessed to be able to do so in the most beautiful church. From there, we had so much fun dancing, eating, singing, and catching up with all of our loved ones. It was a perfectly beautiful day.”
Wow, what an incredible time we had with these two! It started with a coffee date with Karissa + Jacob and their families, and then we all headed over to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Blowing Rock, NC for a little adventure. Not only did we get to hang out with the bride + groom, but also their whole families and it was so much fun! AND this Saturday is their big day - cannot wait! Happy Wedding Day, guys!
Brittany + Brian had a dream wedding up in the Blue Ridge Mountains last year during the beautiful Fall season. We loved getting to work with these guys through their whole wedding journey - from the engagement session, to the bridal session, to the wedding day! We think the world of these guys and loved how they put so much heart into having the wedding day of their dreams...
So happy to be able to finally share Kelley's bridal session with you guys! Gah, can there be a more gorgeous, glowing, happy bride?? Simply stunning. Here are some highlights from our session with Kelley at Moses Cone Manor in Blowing Rock, NC...
This Spring we had the opportunity to team up with a local group of North Carolina wedding professionals to collaborate on a unique and authentic styled shoot at Providence Cotton Mill in Maiden, NC...
For the concept and feel, and story of the shoot, we first and foremost wanted it to be "real", genuine and authentic, and in a sense "pure and simple", and so when selecting our models for the shoot, we wanted them to be a real-life couple with a beautiful story and great chemistry, and what a blessing it was to find our models, Saied and Jessica, who were absolute ROCK stars!
“Every moment of our wedding will be treasured forever. Being a military family means parting ways with the ones you love all the time, this was the first time we had everyone together and it will be forever cherished. From the groom getting high-fived by dad or the bride slow dancing with the flower girl to the wedding party Disney karaoke dance party. Everything was perfect.”
Thinking back on Abby + Aaron's wedding day.... beautiful tears of joy, heartfelt emotion, laughter, celebration, realness, and true love. These two and their loved ones enjoyed and celebrated their wedding day to the fullest, and it was absolutely beautiful.
Wow. Whitney + Matthew's Elopement was positively dreamy. We had so much fun working with them! AND it was an extra special elopement because we had Hannah assist us and get us some really great behind the scenes GoPro video!
"Spending an entire week in a house at the beach with friends and family and ending it with a perfect wedding was a dream come true for both of us. Because we opted for a small DIY wedding, we felt everything was so intimate. We could focus on each other and our commitment."
"...We Met in Yellowstone National Park on a Photography Workshop in late February 2014. We captured much more than stunning photographs. We fell in love. I kissed her in the snow in Bozeman, Montana a week later..."
Brittany was such a lovely bride! We loved getting to spend extra time with her on her bridal session.
The session took place at Westglow Resort & Spa up in Blowing Rock, NC. It was the perfect place for Brittany's session...classic and refined. Here are some highlights from our session with Brittany...
Troy + Amy celebrated their wedding day at Overlook Barn, a beautiful spot in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The day was easygoing, heartwarming and real, filled with celebration, good cheer and good music. It was a taste of North Carolina mixed with Troy's Australian culture.
Nikki + Ryan said their vows in late summertime at River Run Farm in Valle Crucis, NC. They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony along the banks of the Watauga River. The reception was in the barn, with live bluegrass music and a vintage-bohemian feel.
“We met in the USAF and have been together for 5 years now. My husband proposed to me at the Space needle in Seattle WA. We were in transit on our way to South Korea to do a year long tour there together. We had dinner at the restaurant and he proposed during the dinner. He asked me the question and I was so excited I didn’t even say yes! Haha I said DUH!!! He thought that was pretty funny.”
Jackie + David wanted their wedding to be outdoors, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and their family and friends. It was such an adventurous day, and a little bit of rain didn't stop them from enjoying the great outdoors!
