its COLD outside, so i thought it’d be nice to bring a warm wedding to the blog!  this is allison and andrew’s wedding at the Carolina Inn!  bring two amazing families together and a whole host of Fabulous friends, and join together two of the Sweetest people (and ice cream from st louis!!) and you have one magical day!  we loved every minute of this wedding and i’m sad i haven’t blogged it until now!  #betterlatethannever is my mantra for 2018….

its 2018.  i’m going to point out the obvious…. i blogged once in 2017.  talk about a total fail.  as i gathered 2017 info i realized i shot SIXTY THREE sessions and 9 weddings last year.  i really have no excuse for not blogging.  i Want to share my weddings tho from last year!  so i started with this one (in no particular order of course).  kristen and kohl.  they win sweetest ceremony of the year.  the level of emotion was Through the Roof.  they shared candlelight.  kohl sang to kristen.  kristen and kohl sang TOGETHER.  i’m tellin ya…. it was such a tremendous pleasure to watch these two join their lives together.  i tried to keep the number of images down for this post, but i was unsuccessful.  too many i wanted to share.  so here they are….

venue: studio 215 in fayetteville, nc

yeah i pretty much have forgotten how to blog.  but here i am!!  my “plan” is to get these 2017 weddings blogged by the end of the year.  we will see how that goes….  starting with the last wedding we were a part of, we have lauren and jack!  they were married last weekend in chapel hill #goheels since they both graduated from UNC (and they were high school sweethearts, so they have been together a long while!).  they are super chill and have an amazing group of friends and family!  below are some of my favorite pictures from their day!

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!
