Bethany and Grayson met through a study abroad trip through their college. They met in the RDU airport as the group set off to travel together and by the end of the trip they knew without a doubt there was something between them. They were officially a couple later that year.
5 1/2 years later, Grayson proposed to Bethany at RDU airport – where they met.
We got to meet their beautiful faces for the first time in March of this year as we photographed Bethany’s brother’s wedding! Rachel & Josh :) It is such an honor when we get a chance to celebrate with the same family twice!
Bethany and Grayson chose to incorporate the celebration of Christmas for their day. Rose Hill Plantation‘s holiday decor was fabulous and it it was perfect for a chilly, winter wedding! A winter wedding that, in fact, got to witness the FIRST snowflakes of the year! It was quite exciting. Bethany also wore her mother’s wedding dress which is a special thing we don’t often get to witness. It fit her perfectly. If you missed the blog post of her bridal portraits, be sure to go check them out! Lastly, the bride and groom were gifted a live painting on their wedding day! Dan Nelson began his painting of Bethany and Grayson on the alter during the ceremony and by the end of the night had completed their masterpiece keepsake. It was stunning!
We are so happy we got to be a part of this beautiful and crazy fun wedding! The Band Punch entertained the reception party and was absolutely insane! The best live talent we’ve ever seen at a wedding. You’ll probably tell by the abundance of reception photos ;-)
Bethany & Grayson, we love you and are praying so many blessings into your brand new marriage!!
