stewart and sean married | bay 7 wedding | july 16. 2016

our july was FULL and luckily we got to do bay 7 weddings back to back weekends with gina from a southern soiree!  stewart was the most laid-back, fun bride and she married the calmest, sweetest guy and together these two are going to do Big things i just know it!  ECU pirates, they brought that purple into the wedding with the prettiest shade for the bridesmaids dresses!  they had the turtle booth at their reception with the ECU colors and props.  emily minor, who they knew from greenville, came to sing at their reception and that group could have danced another 3 hours into the night!  it was so sweet to see both stewarts dad and stepdad give her away, and she had dances with them both.  its so awesome to see a family who knows that theres never too much love for anyone!  stewart and sean, it was an honor to be a part of your wedding!  here are some of our favorite images from your day!

emma and matt married | duke chapel and bay 7

emma and matt are high school sweethearts who relocated to durham after being accepted at duke!  matt was the defensive captain for duke football and they knew they wanted to be married at the chapel!  they camped out for a WEEK to get in line for their choice date at the chapel (you can only reserve it one year in advance and with matt’s football schedule they knew it needed to be in july!).  getting their date they wanted, they then hired gina at a southern soiree and then they hired us!  gina did an AMAZING job with making their day exactly what they wanted!  emma and matt’s friends and family were so fun and the day went without a hitch!  we thought it was hot That day, but its been much hotter Since!  ha!  this wedding was jammed full of awesome vendors and i’d love to brag on All of them!

we are busting out some fast skills this week!  its friday, they were married 6 days ago, and yes, i am blogging their wedding (AND their gallery of 1400 wedding images is finished)!  #fallweddingresolutionsinfulleffect  #bringonweeksofweddings

katie and michael were married last weekend at the home of katie’s parents.  their yard was Perfect for this!  the weather played tricks on us all day, and the thunder rolled during their ceremony, but it never actually rained.  their dog, danny, was the most precious ring bearer, and was a quivering mess during the ceremony, but hung in there!  both of the families were Amazing, and the love they have for each other is Completely apparent!  this day was awesome and i think their pictures definitely portray that!  here are a couple of my favs… (well more like 158 of them).

BrittWren Berry Hill Wedding 1

so. many. amazing. couples.  we are just the LUCKIEST to have gotten to work with such incredibly stellar couples.  these two are no exception.  why have i not posted this wedding yet?  probably because i wanted to keep this day to myself… lol.  first check box, awesome couple.  second check box, incredible venue (if i had to shoot one place the rest of my wedding career it would be here).  third box, not checked, weather.  the weather was Rough.  cold. rainy. pretty miserable actually.  BUT it didn’t do a Thing to prevent this wedding from being overrun with fabulousness.  i have to say probably my favorite part was watching these two dance.  i Wish i was born with a dance gene but i was not.  these two got my share and about 38 other peoples share.  they danced together All Night Long.  they are like ingredients in a fancy cocktail… put them together and insanity happens.  GOOD insanity.  like magical insanity.  and britt, every detail was just Spot On.  the flowers were stunning, those awesome hangers you had made, the invites were WOW, i have just Adored looking back on their day as i have put this (long) blog post together.  so here you have it…. i am not keeping it to myself any longer… here are britt and wren.  married.
