They grew up in different parts of the country but that didn’t stop fate from bringing them together 11 years ago! Melissa was from Iowa and James is from Warrenton, NC. He moved out to Iowa for work and in being in a new place, knowing no one, asked a guy he worked with if he knew anyone in the area he could introduce James to. Steven, actually knew a girl he went to church with who was about James’ age and happened to be single. Stewart set them up on a blind date and that’s how it began!
Their relationship grew and eventually it was time for James to move back home to NC. He brought his Iowa girl with him :)
They live in the sweetest little historic home in Warrenton surrounded by many of James’ family. We photographed their engagement photos on the property of the home they live in as well as a few other places in the area that are special to their family.
I enjoyed every minute of getting to know this couple and witnessing their love! Their wedding in April is going to be a FUN celebration!
