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!!
