Jenny and Adam stole our hearts from the first moment we met them!  You might remember these beautiful smiles from their Edenton NC engagement session a few months ago and the story of love that began with cornhole and a granny nightie (click over to read their story!).  Whatever the circumstances God used to bring them together, we are sure glad he did because we have loved every minute of documenting their joy as they solidify their lives together!

They chose the most adorable of venues, The Robin’s Nest in Grimesland NC, to host their special day.  Every ounce of it was perfect!  Our favorite moment of the day was when Adam saw his flawless bride for the first time.  His joy radiated!  Jerry and I couldn’t stop talking, days after the wedding, about how she brought him so much peace in that moment. It was beautiful.  I’ll never forget the feeling as the harpist played Surely The Presence in the moments leading up to the ceremony. Feeling the perfect weather, seeing the beauty of the location and ceremony space and watching the love for Jenny and Adam radiating from their guests. The combination was moving. During the ceremony the wind kicked up a notch and I felt like God was surely making himself known in those moments, enveloping Jenny and Adam with his presence! Afterwards I couldn’t help but feel how appropriate the harpists song was!

Jenny’s Grandfather sadly passed away a few months ago.  He used to call Jenny his “little bird” and since his passing they’ve felt his presence anytime they found a feather.  It was no surprise on the wedding day that feathers kept showing up!  Just after Jenny and Adam had their first look, Jerry felt a feather fall from the tree right next to us.  It stayed in Jenny’s bouquet the rest of the day!  He was absolutely there in spirit, cheering on his Little Bird!

We have had so much time connecting with these two over engagement session silliness, talks of old houses and ghosts, palo santo wood and blackbeard, Lol! It’s hard to believe our time with them as wedding photographers has come to a close. But I am SO thrilled that our time with them as friends is just beginning (and maybe as family photographers in future!) We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Mr. & Mrs. Hedgepeth!

If you are seeing these photos right now it’s because Jenny & Adam are MARRIED!!! They said their vows saturday at the gorgeous Robin’s Nest in Grimsland NC and the day was nothing less than perfect. I’ve been holding on to her bridal portraits for a couple months, so anxious to share them! Jenny chose to photograph her portraits around historic Bath, NC where her Mother and Step Father live.  The town of Bath is picture perfect and always provides a variety of beautiful backdrops.  And when you add in a gorgeous bride like Jenny, it’s the icing on the cake!

Stay tuned for a wedding blog soon and in the meantime feel free to drool over this beautiful Mrs. Hedgepeth and her Bath NC Bridal Portraits :-)

    Alana Harris - Jenny, you are absolutely STUNNING! I love you and hope your day was nothing short of perfect!ReplyCancel

Every once in awhile we get the honor of celebrating marriages twice in one family. It always makes us feel so special when we get invited back to celebrate with them again for the next wedding in the family! We got this honor with the Perry’s :-) I photographed Collin’s sister’s wedding  5 years ago and when Collin and his fiancee Chelsea contacted me last year about working with them for their wedding, it made me so happy!  I’ve known the Perry family my whole life growing up  and they are some of the most kind people you’ll ever meet.  Once I met Chelsea, I knew right away Collin had picked the perfect one to be joined into this wonderful family. Chelsea is so vibrantly beautiful and full of joy!  Her happiness and optimism is infectious and my opinion about her wonderful attitude was confirmed all throughout their engagement as she didn’t stress about anything. Nothing at all was going to rock her boat about marrying her love! That constant joy radiated through on her wedding day and was even mentioned by the pastor during the ceremony about her continual optimism through life.. even through heavy Charlotte traffic that caused her ceremony start about 20 minutes late! Who cares about traffic!? Chelsea was marrying Collin. And that’s all that mattered.

I love these two.  I love how Collin looks at Chelsea.  You can see his affection for her.  I love how Chelsea falls into him when she embraces him.  They love with all they’ve got. And that’s exactly the love that Jesus gave to us to give to our spouses. He designed it and its perfect.. And these two solidified that love with Christ at the center on September 23  at the dreamiest of places, The Ivy Place in Lancaster SC.  I can’t speak highly enough about this venue! Every single piece of it was incredibly beautiful!  The adorable bridal suite cottage, the amazing main house from the mid 1800’s, the landscape with endless places to take portraits, and the reception area! From a photographers perspective, this place has it all and it was so much fun to photograph!

I hope you enjoy this peek into Collin and Chelsea’s wedding day!  From the bottom of our hearts we are so happy for their future together :)

Chelsea and Collin got married on Saturday!! Their wedding in Lancaster, SC at The Ivy Place was absolute perfection!  We got a bazillion gorgeous images from their wedding day that we are starting to cull through, but in the meantime I wanted to share Chelsea’s bridal portraits! We took them on land that had been in Collin’s family for decades in Hertford NC. The same place we photographed their sweet engagement photos :)

Take a peak at the gorgeous Mrs. Perry and get ready for some wedding sneak peaks soon!

Our Saturday was spent exploring the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, laughing about grilled cheeses and first dates and ONE of us singing Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy (whom shall remain nameless, LOL!)

Lauren and Steven just moved to the Raleigh area and are planning their October 2018 in their hometown of New York.  It was so special that they chose to celebrate their engagement in their NEW hometown of Raleigh and Jerry and I were thrilled that they allowed us to celebrate with them! Their silliness and kindness to each other won over our hearts and it was clear as day that these two were meant to be together.  We are so excited for their future together and look forward to seeing some beautiful wedding photos in October 2018!! Hurray for Mr. and Mrs. LaFeminas To-Be!

Do you remember Will & Caitlin?.. And their unbelievably beautiful botanical themed wedding a couple months ago? Their wedding day was more than magnificent and we were so happy to be able to celebrate with them and with their family.

They chose to have a small intimate  ceremony in Maryland near where Caitlin grew up.  This meant that a post-wedding celebration back home on Will’s families turf was in order so that all of his family could have a chance to celebrate with them, too!  What more appropriate place than at his Parent’s Yeopim Flowers Farm :)  Sybil outdid herself (per the usual) and planned the most delightful backyard Happily Ever After gathering full of down home goodness and southern hospitality (can we just talk about softshell crabs and barbeque for a sec!?).

So many people offered their helping hands in making this celebration happen for Will and Caitlin! From family and friends gathering to help build, clean, set up, cook, even brew the beer!  To local vendors delivering and preparing food, serving, and even a live band to keep the dance floor moving!  It was as much fun for us local folks working together to make this happen as it was for Will & Caitlin celebrating their marriage!

We always look forward to coming together with our local community to produce something amazing (see it here, here, here, and here!) and when the reason isn’t just for a pretty shoot but to celebrate two people we love dearly beginning their Happily Ever After – it makes it that much better.

Here’s to the newest Mr. & Mrs. Skinner!

Mary and Jonathan met while Mary cleaned his teeth.  Not many couples have that story to tell!  Mary was in school to become a Dental Hygienist and unbeknownst to Jonathan, his Mom signed him up for the patient pool through the school to have his teeth cleaned by the students. Guess which lucky student got the job ;-)  Mary and Jonathan will disagree though on how exactly that first meeting went.  He says she was the one flirting with him and she says most definitely he was the one flirting with her!  However the story unfolded, the two were smitten from the moment they met and 7 years later they are married!

This wasn’t just any wedding though.  Mary’s family is from India and Jonathan’s family is from Colombia so they took great care in making sure that they honored ages old traditions from both their homelands.  There were bright colors and gorgeous prints throughout every ounce of the day!  Mary wore a breathtaking white Sari for their traditional Mass ceremony and changed into an opulent burgundy and gold one before the reception. Both were stunning on her!  To honor Jonathan’s Colombian heritage his mother brought in a team of Colombian folklore dancers to perform during the reception! It was amazing!

Their wedding day was so beautifully unique and surrounded by so much love from their families and friends. Mary and Jonathan had their focus in the right place – each other and loving on their families all day. Even when it started pouring (I’m talking, rain coming in sideways downpour!) during our bridal party portrait time, they weren’t even phased! We just went in and finished up in front of the epic staircase inside the Grand Marquise Ballroom.  The title of that room speaks for itself.. grand is an understatement!

I hope you enjoy sharing in Mary and Jonathan’s wedding day as much as we enjoyed sharing it with them!  We are grateful we were a part of their biggest day!   pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin pin

You have probably seen these happy faces before – Carrie + Aiken – for their Fall Engagement Session in Raleigh. If you did, then you probably learned that they have known each other since pretty much forever. Since pre-school actually :) They grew up in the same town, their families knew each other and their Grandmothers even played bridge together!

I bet as pre-schoolers they nor their families had any clue they’d be celebrating their wedding day in 2017!  Carrie and Aiken started hanging out towards the end of college and it was quickly obvious to them that they would be together forever :)

They celebrated their wedding at Carrie’s Grandmother’s cottage at the Outer Banks.. a place where sooo many other of Carrie’s family members have had their weddings (Including Carrie’s Brother Patrick and his wife Elena’s wedding that we photographed in 2014!).  Their home is so cozy and relaxed and is the perfect setting for such a beautiful, happy celebration.  We felt like one of the family by the end of the night and we had as much fun as everyone else that was there!

We are so excited to introduce Mr. & Mrs. Small and to give you the official peak into their wedding day now that they are back from their honeymoon in Thailand! Congrats you two!!

When one of your best friends is a floral designer/grower  and she has a son who is a Botanist, and that Botanist Son marries a Botanist Lady, and YOU get to photograph that wedding!?  That’s what I call EPIC!

Caitlin and Will’s worlds collided when one of their mutual friends successfully defended her thesis and they all got together to celebrate! Caitlin’s first sighting of Will was of him singing loudly to Party in The USA.. she said it was totally love at first sight ;-) They both finished at William and Mary and moved to Will’s hometown of Hertford NC for a while as Caitlin finished up her Masters. That’s when Jerry and I got to know them as we bonded over kittens, being Winfallians and styled shoots that Will’s Mom and I made them model for!

I admit I have had a girl crush on Caitlin’s earthy, vintage style since meeting her.  I knew without a doubt when they told me their good news of being engaged that Caitlin’s adorable style would be all over their wedding day! They decided to get married in Maryland, close to Caitlin’s family and chose the fascinating Brick Chapel of 1667 in St. Mary’s City!  There was so much history surrounding the location for their wedding! Jerry and I spent the whole 4 hour ride home researching so many interesting facts about the Chapel and St. Mary’s City!

Among the cornflower blue hues and silver compotes and natural wood elements, of course Will and Caitlin chose to highlight their botanical backgrounds too with some out of the ordinary floral elements and the most amazing seating chart ever.  Each table was named after one of Caitlin’s favorite wildflowers! Will’s Mom Sybil found some incredible ingredients to use among their floral design. Including Honey Wart, Bells of Ireland, Sword Fern, Hosta, Hellabore, Bupleurum, Orchids, Yellow Yarrow, Fiddlehead Fern, Dutch Iris, Cattails, Echinacea, Scabiosa, Veronica, Succulents and – in my opinion, the coolest – Pitcher Plants at the base of the table arrangements! I’m proud to say I inherited a few of those pitcher plants that live on my back porch now, hopefully eating up all the mosquitos ;-)

Their Wedding at The Brick Chapel of 1667 and reception at the quaint Brome-Howard Inn was relaxed and lovely and perfect.  They drove away in Caitlin’s Volkswagen Bug with a cowbell on the back, just as Will’s Mom and Dad had on the back of their wedding day car in 1980.

Just as you were thinking this was all the celebrating you get to do for Caitlin and Will – well get set! Because their Hertford, NC Happily Ever After Party at Will’s Parent’s home on the Yeopim Flowers Farm will happen on July 1!  More celebrating to come for these two!
