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.
"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..."
It's our 1st wedding of 2017! Here are some behind the scenes of some of what goes into prepping for the wedding day, getting details, shots of the ceremony, bride and groom, plus a few of the reception!
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.

“The amazing food! Hiking through the trees in heels and almost falling down the hill. The most perfect fall day. Our officiant laughing hysterically during the ceremony when reading our quirky messages to each other. Sitting around the fire at the end of the night enjoying each other and our family.”

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.”
Hey guys! We had an awesome time traveling to the OBX to photograph and celebrate with Vanessa + Patrick! I know I've been saying that we'll be vlogging and doing more behind the scenes, and this time we finally got around to it. Playing around with the GoPro and also getting used to being in front of the camera, so here it is! Candid and behind the scenes stuff from our trip. Kind of short and sweet, and quite possibly a little boring, but just our first vlog together, we'll be doing lots more soon...
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..."

"...We went for a walk on the beach and along the way found a perfectly intact, still living, sand dollar. Lee bent down to pick up the sand dollar, got down on one knee, and pulled a ring out of his pocket..."
"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..."
