so excited to post this engagement session! richie and i drove up to NEW YORK CITY to do katie and ryan’s session in central park!! this was our first trip to the big city but we Loved it! it was slightly majorly intimidating, but it was a Fantastic trip! so many of our clients gave us pointers on where to go and what to do there so that was Really cool! we met katie and ryan in the Early morning for a Sunrise engagement session (one of two we did this year). they knew they wanted to do their session in central park but it gets Busy Fast so to cut down on traffic we did it at sunrise! i am pretty sure we walked the Entire park! that night we had dinner at the stanton social, where katie and ryan were so sweet to make us reservations and then we got surprised with champagne and a sweet note from them!! like sweetest thing ever!! we had Such a fantastic time with them and we can’t wait for their wedding next september in chapel hill! (this session was done about two weeks before Sandy hit…)

kassie and ben…. married… september 1. 2012…. asheville nc. oh these two…. i’ve waited for this wedding for so long and it was everything (plus some) that i expected it to be! i blew my “50 picture limit” out of the water with this post, so i won’t write much here (i’ve written a bunch within the blog post).
but i can’t say enough how awesome of a job kassie mae and ben did with every detail of their wedding! and how perfect they are for each other! this whole wedding team worked together to make this day pretty darn good! here we go!!……
all the absolutely perfect little details: kassie mae & ben **love**
and now i must pause to tell what happened next… because while it was pretty scary, it turned out ok, and it IS part of their story….
while in line to go out to the ceremony, kassie mae’s grandfather fell. hard. split his forehead open and under his eye. the paramedics had to be called. kassie mae wanted him to be at the ceremony SO badly. and he wanted to as well. but there wasn’t any getting around a hospital trip. so as the paramedics worked on him, kassie mae and ben said their vows right there in the living room! so utterly sweet!!! good news is that he did well with all his tests and got stitched up and made it back to the reception! yay!!
love you guys!! so happy we could become intertwined in your lives, even if only for a short time! xxoo, jamie and richie

our first greek wedding. and it was FABULOUS!!! katie and taylor were SO much fun! and they have such great families and friends. and dancing. lots of dancing…..
venues: getting ready- marriott of greensboro downtown ceremony- greek church of the dormition of the theotoko’s, greensboro reception- revolution mills
i have to pause real quick to explain the next couple pictures… i was posing the two of them while their families watched behind me and taylor placed his hand on katies belly and rubbed it and said something about a baby (TOTALLY NOT TRUE) (about there being a baby in there) and katie’s reaction was HILARIOUS! in the first picture she is telling her family “it’s not true!! don’t listen to him!!” and then in the second one taylor’s getting quite the laugh about it and katie is saying “WHY would you say that??!”. there no baby as of right now, rest assured, but this was pretty entertaining to watch/photograph! love you katie! and love the immediate emotional reaction! and how you look like you are going to smack him with your bouquet! classic!! gotta love a groom with a sense of humor! ha!!
it was an awesome wedding. period. no doubt.

marissa and jack were married on july 21st in marissa’s hometown of havelock, nc. we struggled with dark skies, rain, and july heat and humidity most of the day, but we were fortunate that during the “important times”, like when we were relocating to new spots, it didn’t pour down rain like the radar teased us with the whole day. jack is the brother of one of our past brides, charlotte, and last fall as charlotte and i talked about jack’s recent engagement she told me “jack just wants to be a husband and a dad more than anything, and he and marissa are perfect for each other!” and she was/is totally correct! marissa and jack are each other’s rock, and when you are around them you just know its going to be a life full of happiness and completeness for them both. <3
