"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..."

“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!
"When Brandon and I pictured our perfect wedding, we always talked about it in terms of people, and our friends and family are truly who made this day absolutely perfect for us. We felt the type of endless love and support that can only be felt when you are in the same place with all the people who mean the world to you. Seeing all of your friends from different parts of your life come together, make friends with each other, and have a great time is priceless..."

"Edward and I became best friends—for life—at the ripe old age of 13. Later, at about the age of 18, it became somewhat of a foregone conclusion that we would marry someday. Over the years, we have truly grown together, encouraging each other to become our best selves and to pursue our goals. I feel blessed to have found Edward so early in life, and it is a privilege to marry my high-school sweetheart..."
“Never in a hundred years did I ever think I was going to marry a man from a Scottish ancestry, so once he told me he was going to wear a kilt on our wedding day I knew that I wanted to have a fairytale wedding. Since we got engaged in Scotland, we wanted to be in a landscape that resembled a Scottish Castle - and Castle Ladyhawke did just that.” — Stephanie
That’s how it all began on the night of February 9th at Christy’s Europub in Greenville, North Carolina. Otis Redding’s "On the Dock of the Bay" began playing on the jukebox. Courtney felt the sudden urge to dance, so she tried to convince her friend to dance with her. Luckily, her friend turned her down. That’s when John spontaneously stepped in and exclaimed, “I’ll dance with you.”
