This beautiful gal got married this past weekend! It was, of course, a fabulous day at The Pond House Inn in Elizabeth City with so many happy friends and family of Jenna + John!

It seems like ages ago that we braved the chilly March winds out at Land’s End Plantation in Hertford NC for her bridal photos, and here I am getting ready to cull through their June wedding photos.  It’s amazing how time flies!

… and while we’re on the subject of amazing can we just take a minute to drool over Jenna?!  We may have been freezing our buns off during this shoot, fighting 40mph winds, but you would never know from her joy – and I’ll tell you what – I’ll take 40mph winds any day if it will make a dress fly around like this!

I adore how free spirited her portraits feel, and more importantly, how happy her soul is to be married to her high school sweetheart, John.

Congrats to Jenna + John! I think we can all agree that John is a lucky fellow to have this lady by his side for eternity :)  I will be sharing wedding photos with you SOON!

Yesterday you saw Amanda + DJ’s fun, relaxed day-before wedding portrait session (and hopefully you are considering doing one too! ;-) so today you get to see the whole shebang!

Lauren and Ashley of Celebrations in Elizabeth City decked out Amanda + DJ’s wedding at Albemarle Plantation in Hertford NC to the nines.  Sweet billy balls paired with succulents and pops of yellow and green all over.. it was so joyful and happy and beautiful!  Going into the day, we were incredibly thankful that we had opted to take some portraits together the day before the wedding because the weather forecast was slated to be bad.  A ton of rain, all day. We had already mentally prepared ourselves for that and it was going to work, either way.

..And then literally (Can I stress literally!) 5 minutes before we had scheduled for our First Look portraits and bridal party photos, the sky opened up!  The clouds rolled away along with the rain and the blue sky looked as if it hadn’t rained a drop that day! It was incredible!  We had bright blue skies for our portrait time and Amanda + DJ were able to have their wedding ceremony outside :-)

We have loved every minute of working with Amanda + DJ over the course of their engagement.  We felt immediately like we had been friends for  years and we’re ecstatic that now, we DO get to be friends for years!

Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Vela!!

I consider myself one lucky lady to have had an entire 2 hours of time with Amanda & DJ before their wedding day at Albemarle Plantation in Hertford NC to have a sweet First Look moment and a relaxed full portrait session.  That never happens!  On a wedding day we usually have about 20 minutes to rush through a variety of poses but to have a whole session planned to take our time getting a fun variety of photos in a super relaxed setting?  Oh it was heaven.

Amanda’s package included a bridal session but she asked to exchange that session for a Friday-before-the-wedding shoot of she and DJ.  I couldn’t have said yes any louder!  It is any photographers dream to have an opportunity to photograph a bride and groom outside of the wedding day rush and this afternoon proved to be perfect.  

The weather on that Friday was amazing.. which was lucky for us because the wedding day weather forecast was a WHOLE other ballgame.  The weather was looking to be rain all day long so we were thankful to have chosen this opportunity to photograph together in case the rain got in the way on wedding day. (You’ll have to wait and see the wedding day blog post tomorrow to see how the weather played out for us!)

If I had it my way, every couple would have a day before – or day after shoot and an opportunity to relax together and relish in this once in a lifetime moment!  I truly think Amanda and DJ enjoyed this time together as much as I did :-)

You are seeing these photos because Ashley + Randy got married this past weekend!!  Woo HOO!! Their beautiful wedding day photos are uploading and backing up as we speak so in the meantime I wanted to share a peak into her bridal portraits!

We dodged the rain one lovely afternoon in May (coincidentally barely dodging it again on her wedding day!) and met at the Newbold White House in Hertford for a fun afternoon documenting beautiful Ashley in her wedding gown.  I love her simple and relaxed gown with that beautiful lace and killer back.. girl can rock an open back dress, lemmie tell you! And the sweet wildflower reminiscent bouquet created by Sybil of Yeopim Flowers was the perfect accent.

Ashley  + Randy’s wedding day yesterday was completely wonderful and I can’t wait to share some photos from their day!!

In the meantime, let’s celebrate the new Mrs. MacDonald!

I knew from the minute Brittany told me she was having floral print Show me your Mumu bridesmaids dresses and a Vera Wang blush wedding dress that there was no doubt we were meant to be together..

Me/Jerry + Brian/Brittany, that is!

Brittany’s whimsical-floral-with-a-little-taste-of-boho style couldn’t have matched my own personal taste ANY more perfectly and photographing all the beautiful and unique elements of their wedding day was pretty much like spending a day at Disney world – so much to feast  your eyes on and experience!  My camera was having a hay day utilizing all her beautiful details :-)

We first met Brian + Brittany last year at Karen + Chips wedding.. we both remember noticing that cute couple on the dance floor who were so sweet on each other!  After Karen + Chip’s wedding, Brittany messaged to inquire about us photographing their own wedding in 2016! We then got to hug their necks when they were guests again at our very next wedding last year for Mandy + Trey!!

Fast forwarding a whole year to Brian + Brittany’s own wedding at Mulberry Hill in Edenton NC.   Brittany didn’t miss a thing.  Handmade benches for the ceremony seating, sweet fabric flowers for the guests to adorn themselves at the entrance, market flower stems home grown from Yeopim Flowers Farm adorning the ceremony and reception, floral bowtie with leather suspenders for Brian and of course those Show me your Mumu Bridesmaids dresses coupled with her Blush Wedding Dress was the highlight of the day (ok, highlight of the year!) 

They even ended the night with a fireworks display!

My favorite moment of the day? Brian’s reaction to seeing his bride walk the aisle to him.  I was wiping my own tears behind my camera watching Brian wipe his!  Most emotional Groom I’ve ever photographed seeing his bride for the first time.. it was the best thing since sliced bread :)

We love this couple to the moon and back and there’s no place in the world we would have rather been on May 14th, than experiencing this perfect day with them!!

On May 14th, one of the sweetest brides I’ve met got married while we were photographing another amazing wedding day (Brian + Brittany’s blog post is to come!). We weren’t available for Andi’s wedding but I was thrilled that she asked us to take part in her celebration by photographing her bridals!

She traveled to Edenton NC for her shoot and we had a ball playing in the wind charging off the Edenton bay that day.

What I will remember most about Andi (besides her killer dress!) was her joy.  She beamed happiness and I could tell in the hour that I met her that she has such a beautiful heart!

I’m so happy for she and Jason and their future together and I can’t WAIT to see photos from her beautiful day!

Congratulations, Mrs. Workman!!

They lived in the same apartment complex but had only seen each other in passing. Lauren was ready to strike up conversation with her handsome neighbor so she set out to clean her car in the parking lot, in hopes he might come home from work while she was outside.. He did! He began to clean out his car as well, like any guy would when there is a cute neighbor in the parking lot cleaning hers :)  Eventually they both started walking back to the building at the same time and conversation started, numbers were exchanged and the rest is history!

Lauren and Jim said their vows on the beautiful Historic Courthouse Green in Downtown Edenton.  It was the perfect backdrop for their day!  The weather was fantastic, the view of the Edenton Bay was spectacular and we had just the right amount of breeze keeping us cool. Lauren chose the most beautiful shades of blushes and ivory and champagnes for their reception and the yummiest dinner curated by the fabulous Montero’s of Elizabeth City.  Their wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect :)

Mr. & Mrs. Mills visited beautiful Charleston SC for their honeymoon and are getting settled into married life now.  Congrats Lauren + Jim!!

In 6th grade english class, Taylor was determined to get her shy classmate to talk to her. After almost the whole class, Jonathan started talking… and they were best friends ever since!

Finally in their second year of college, just as Taylor began praying about waiting on God to bring her the right one in her life, Jonathan started pursuing her as more than friends. It was obvious God had always intended for them to be together one day :-)

And joyfully, that day has come! Taylor + Jonathan got married on April 30th at Providence Baptist Church in their home county of  Currituck, NC, followed by a reception at The Pines Golf Course in Elizabeth City.  I adored their beautiful color pallet of bright pinks and oranges and blues!  My favorite element of their day was how they honored their home turf by naming each of their tables after towns within their county.  Each guest picked their corresponding town from the map to find their seat!

Taylor and Jonoathan’s wedding day went without a hitch and they headed out to Italy for their honeymoon!  Their images are finishing up in my gallery right now and I’m so excited to share a little peak into their wedding day.

As their wedding hashtag says, let’s give a #toasttoposton!

Accidentally getting pepper sprayed together on the night you met is definitely reason to believe you’ve found your soul mate.. well, at least thats how it played out for Tamara + Matt!

After meeting while out for drinks with friends one night in Greenville, these two opened the doors to leave just as someone was being pepper sprayed outside!  Getting pepper spray in their own eyes sent them back into the bar for water and after the eventful episode, decided to hang out for one more drink, which lead to more nights following of hanging out together… which led to their wedding last weekend :-)

Tamara + Matt celebrated their wedding day at The Black Stallion in Corolla NC. This stunning property boasts as being the largest single family home built on the Outer Banks and it’s grandeur surely lives up to it’s size!  You couldn’t find a bad angle to photograph from in this estate, with so many classy and beautiful nooks and cranny’s of light.  It was the perfect backdrop to their traditional and romantic day!

The day went without a hitch, and the rain even decided to hold off for us too!  I couldn’t be happier that we were able to a part of their celebration and I’m proud to present to you, Mr. and Mrs. Riddick!

Tamara + Matt were married on Saturday.. Woop-Woop!!  Their wedding at the Black Stallion in Corolla was one of the most lively and fun events we’ve been a part of and we’re still thanking Jesus that he held the rain off for us the entire day :-)

While I begin working through their wedding day images, I wanted to share Tamara’s beautiful bridal photos we took last fall at the Leslie Alford Mim’s House in Raleigh, NC – THE sweetest wedding venue, pretty much ever.  If you are a planning bride and love rustic-modern meets chic-southern, you must book with the Mim’s house! (… and then call us, cause we can’t wait to photograph there again sometime! hehe!)

I will be sharing some wedding images of Tamara and Matt soon but in the meantime – check out a few of her beautiful bridal photos :-)

Congrats Tamara + Matt!

Jenna + David are pretty much the cutest couple ever. Let’s just go ahead and throw that out there!  I love how Jenna lights up his smile like a Christmas tree!  It was so evident to Jerry and I how much that boy loves his girl :)

Jenna and David also have a pretty good knack for going with the flow – of which they had to practice on their early April wedding day when the spring weather decided to be completely unpredictable!  30 to 40 MPH winds coming off the Edenton Bay right onto the Courthouse Lawn where their ceremony and reception was to take place definitely put a little kink in the plans! But it was certainly nothing that they couldn’t deal with and roll with the windy punches.  After the sides were put up on the tents and the ceremony was moved into the courthouse building at the last minute, all was well.  And the wind even decided to calm down a bit for us during portrait time!

We were so excited to kick off our 2016 Wedding Year with Jenna and David’s Edenton NC Wedding and we’re tickled that we got to be a part of witnessing this special day!
