Had we not been stalking weather.com all week keeping an eye on Saturdays weather, we never would have known by Rachel’s joyfulness when we arrived that the forecast was looming with 90% chance of rain on she and Josh’s wedding day.  Rachel was calm and collected and happy – as if the weather made NO difference at all!  And it didn’t :) It was obvious that she and Josh were just so thankful to be together with their family and friends surrounding them as they promised forever. No matter what the weather wanted to do!

Rachel and Josh met in middle school and in early high school formed a bond that, even at the young ages of 15 they just knew it was a bond that would be life-long.  They soon started dating and after 7 years Josh proposed, and finally March 18th they celebrated their wedding day at the gorgeous Rock Springs Center in Greenville, NC.  Rock Springs has the most incredible landscape and the building is simply elegant. I had heard wonderful things about that location so getting to shoot there was an honor!

Jerry and I enjoyed every minute of witnessing the love that this couple has for each other and the love that their family and friends have for them.  We are also SO very excited to share that we will be celebrating with this family AGAIN in December when Josh’s sister Bethany marries her Grayson!! It will be so much fun to document such a special time for the Barnes once again :)

We are so happy to announce Mr. & Mrs. Barnes!!  And can we give a shout out to the rain that DID actually decide to give us a break right at portrait time!?  It was pretty amazing ;-)

Congrats Rachel & Josh!

Meet Hannah and Raja. They are both Lebanese, yet they grew up thousands of miles away from each other. Hannah grew up in Charlotte, NC and Raja was raised overseas in the country of Lebanon.

So how did they meet?? On somewhat of a whim, Hannah decided after graduating art school here in Charlotte to move to her family’s homeland of Lebanon and pursue art making there. She wasn’t able to find the right materials to advance her art career when she arrived but what she did find was a temporary English teaching job to sustain her while she was working on her art career.

Unbeknownst to Hannah, this job was the one God had intended for her to take all along. As luck would have it, one of the teachers Hannah befriended at the school just moved in with a roommate who, upon meeting Hannah, insisted that she meet a friend of hers because they shared the same faith, same sense of humor, and even American accent :)

His name was Raja.

In the words of Hannah she said they met first on a group outing, then went out only a couple times after that “and then decided hey, we’re probably going to get married!” (When you know, you know right?! So after 3 months they were tamamna (thank you Hannah for the Arabic lesson! .. It means they were officially seeing each other!). After Hannah’s time ended in Lebanon she moved back to the states and Raja moved here to be with her a year later. And here we are! Celebrating their marriage!

Hannah’s experienced artistic talent was all over their wedding day at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden just outside Charlotte, NC. Without wanting to feel ‘fallish’ or ‘christmas-y’ she chose the most graceful hues of deep mauves and burgundys and reds and highlighted them with elegant splashes of peach and lavender.

Her floral design? SHE DESIGNED IT. All of it. From her bouquets to the boutonnieres to the table and ceremony arrangements. She DIY’d every inch of it and I could not believe the talent for wedding design that lay within this chick! I think we should see Hannah Reslan Wedding Design going into business really soon and I want to photograph all her weddings.. I got dibs ;-)

This wedding was the final event on our 20 wedding calendar this year. It has been an incredible year full of amazingly gorgeous people, inside and out. We have documented so much love and laughter this 2016 and we can’t wait to do it all over again in 2017!

I must say that this wedding couldn’t have been a more perfect way to close out our wedding year. I’m also pretty stoked that these killer images will be the landing page for our blog all the way through the holidays ;-)

Happy marriage Mr. & Mrs. Reslan!!

I had known Taylor through working with Jerry over the last couple years.  He was always a happy, silly, guy every time I’ve talked to him.  But I had never met his Lauren until last week when we got together for a shoot at the Newbold White House in Hertford, NC.  The happy Taylor that I knew before was magnified times a million around his gal!  They light each other up like the fourth of July.. well, more appropriate for this time of year, like a Christmas tree :)

We encourage silliness and laughter and giggling and flirting, a lot in our sessions.  This was a NO brainer for these two! They were on board with all of our silly posing games and lovey dovey cuddliness!  Pretty much exactly the kind of people I want to photograph every. single. day.  

Lauren + Taylor … You guys just rock as a team.  I’m so thankful we got to document this little sliver of your life together and I am SOOOOO excited about what your future holds! (Does anyone hear wedding bells!?)

We celebrated Thanksgiving over family, great food, some much needed R&R and reflecting over the many many graces God gave us this year. So many we can’t count.  So many we forget to count.  But one of the things that I regularly do remember to thank God for are the fabulous, vibrant and completely in love couples that he graces our lives with.  In 2016 we had the honor of enjoying 28 stunning couples in front of our cameras.  20 couples on their wedding day and another 8 for their engagement or couples sessions.  It was a year full of laughter and joy and playfulness!  …And we are grateful.  Grateful to God for bringing each of them into our lives and grateful to them for trusting us with documenting such an intimate and special time for them.

One of the most recent set of lovebirds that we got to photograph is Chelsea and Collin.  They will be getting married next September at The Ivy Place outside of Charlotte, NC. Their wedding day reception has a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere which completely reflects the love between them :)  Their happiness shown easily and their laughter proves it in the photos below!

Jerry and I are thankful that we had the chance to get to know Chelsea and Collin this fall and to begin the exciting countdown to next September!

I am catching up on blogging 3 beautiful brides who have married their honeys in the last couple months and whos gorgeous bridal photos sadly didn’t make it to the blog because busy fall season had me all consumed with shooting, editing and delivering weddings. Now that I am all caught up and have only wedding left to go before wedding season 2016 is over, I am getting these beauties published!

Yesterday I shared Mrs. Danielle Hill’s lovely photos take at The Robin’s nest in Grimesland, NC and today I am sharing the newest and most beautiful Mrs. Maegen Mahoney!

We photographed Maegen + Mark’s wedding as part two of a fabulous double header weekend. We started our weekend with Danielle + Butch in Grimesland on September 24th and ended the next day with Maegen and Mark at The Boathouse in Beaufort NC.

A couple months before their wedding, I met Maegen here in Edenton NC to photograph her in her classic dress and gorgeous smile.  I’m here’s to the beautiful Mrs. Mahoney!

Fall arrived with a quickness earlier this year and it was kicked off with a fantastic double header weekend for Jerry and I.  We photographed Danielle + Butch’s wedding day on Saturday September 24th at The Robins Nest in Grimesland NC and on the day following, Maegen + Mark in Morehead City.  It was a jam packed weekend full of some really great moments.

But with the fun fall season comes a monstrosity of editing and delivering and there is not much room for anything else.  So there are 3 sessions that never hit the blog this fall while I was busy delivering weddings to our couples.  Now that I am caught up with edits until our very last wedding of the year this Friday, I had a little extra time to get these puppies published! Well, they aren’t puppies, obviously, but they are gorgeous brides who are now happily wed to their loves!

First up is the newest Danielle Hill :-) She and Butch are finally married after 12 years of being together and I must say it’s about time!  We photographed her bridals in the same location that they celebrated their wedding day – at The Robin’s Nest in Grimesland, NC. After visiting this venue it is one of my absolute favorite venues of all time! I can’t wait to photograph there again!

I’m happy to finally share a peak into Mrs. Hill’s lovely bridal photos :)

You’ll be seeing Mrs. Mahoney next!

Sometimes the light that God gives us to photograph just knocks my socks off.

And sometimes the couples that God gives us to photograph also knock my socks off.

I think it’s clear to see that my socks were doubly knocked off the day we photographed Amber + Dylan.  Amber and Dylan met back in High School (which may or may not include a romantic first meeting place at McDonalds!) and chose instead of planning a large, local wedding, to have a small private  vow exchange and then whisk away to celebrate with a fabulous honeymoon!  We think their plan is fantastic and we are so honored that they asked us to document their engagement session for them.

We had a fun, relaxed afternoon which included walks through the beautiful property of Newbold White House, playing with their sweet pup, and maybe a few jokes about double cheeseburgers and romantic McDonalds matchmaking :-)

I can’t wait to see the joy unfold for Amber + Dylan next year as they say Forever!

When I photographed Kala and Jonathan’s, silly in love faces last fall for their engagement session in Hertford, I knew we were a match.  Their easy-going love felt like it just leapt into my camera lens and documenting their joy together was effortless.

Fast forward to a whole year later as their October 2016 wedding arrived and nothing had changed.  There was no stress, no anxiety (that they allowed us to see!) only excitement to finally make this love official!  They celebrated their wedding day at the fabulous Sanctuary Vineyards in Currituck, NC. The fall color was vibrant in the grapevines that adorn the property and their stunning floral decor by Yeopim Flowers was just the right accent to such an elegant affair! Variations of plums and reds and greens filled pumpkins and silver compotes which celebrated in the most perfect way, the peak of this fall season.

Jerry and I had the best time documenting this incredible moment in life for Kala and Jonathan.  We feel like their family and friends took us in as one of their own and as we shared hugs with everyone there as we left that night – many whom we had just met 8 hours earlier – we knew that God had perfectly planned for us to be there on that day.. it was just that good.

We are so excited to finally introduce to you – Mr. & Mrs. DeLucia!!  Congrats, Loves and we wish you the most joyful future together!

Our second to last wedding of the year happened on October 29th celebrating the love between Kala + Jonathan.  The fall color was vibrant and lovely at Sanctuary Vineyards for their day.. exactly as we had all been dreaming it would be and exactly as it was for their fall engagement session in Hertford one year ago!

Kala’s bridal session didn’t have a single fall leave in it, however, but what it did have was a whole lot of gorgeousness!  Her May shoot took place at Elizabethan Gardens under a canopy of fresh, green foliage and elegant live oaks with the early summer sun glittering through the leaves.  It was perfect.  Kala’s gown and veil reminded me of a fairytale and coupled with the royal surroundings of the Gardens named after Queen Elizabeth I, it was just that – a fairytale.

It was my honor to showcase their fabulous wedding day last week and it is again my honor to highlight this beautiful bride! Congratulations Mrs. Delucia!

If there was ever a real life fairytale (in addition to our fairy tale of course!) it would be this one. Zoe and Glen are a for-real-no-joke Prince and Princess… at Disney World, that is! Zoe plays Jasmine and Belle and Glen plays Gaston. They make dreams come true for people every single day doing what they do and you can imagine our delight when this beautiful couple asked US to play a role in documenting their very own fairytale dream come true!

Jerry and I haven’t been able to stop talking about how this love that they share is seriously unlike any other. They have grown closer to Christ together as a couple and have kept God at the center of their relationship and in every moment of solidifying their marriage together with him.

They planned their wedding in Canton OH, near where Zoe grew up. The fall color was at it’s peak vibrancy all through the rolling hills of Canton and especially, it seemed, at Gervasi Vineyard. Even through the cold raindrops that paid us a visit on their day, the landscape proved to be almost as beautiful as Zoe herself :)

Now let’s talk about Zoe and beautiful, shall we? This girl is the epitome of classy and beautiful. Her outward beauty is what you see first but as soon as you know her you realize her beauty goes deep, deep within. She truly carries the beauty of Christ in her heart which shines unceasingly from her every pore! And Glen is the perfectly handsome compliment to her gorgeous soul.

We didn’t actually meet Zoe and Glen in person (aside from a Facetime Chat!) until the day of their wedding but throughout the months that we got to know each other long distance, we knew every moment that there was something incredibly profound about this couple.  They are old souls who steep themselves in the things most important in this life and in faith.

I think you’ll agree after viewing their photos that this Christ-like love that they share for one another and exemplify to the world is so very alive and shines vibrantly through them!  I know our lives are blessed because we were gifted the experience of knowing Mr. & Mrs. Nelson! I hope your day is a little brighter after seeing their love, too :)

Happy married life, Mr. & Mrs. Nelson!!
