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.

elizabeth and preston married  |  oxford. nc  |  may 30. 2015

i’m not sure exactly what the odds are of two people meeting and falling in love and getting engaged to someone with the same last name.  i’m guessing its pretty low odds.  but these two Beat those odds and now they are #doublecrossed.  “i’m elizabeth cross. and my fiance is preston cross. and no we are not related.”

people ask me all the time, “do you ever get tired of weddings?”.  no.  we definitely do not.  they are each SO different!  and while i always seem to say “these two were made for each other”, i’m tellin ya… THESE TWO WERE MADE FOR EACH OTHER!!  preston is hilarious.  elizabeth is hilarious.  and they make each other and everyone around them HAPPY.  and oh my, their families…. just like the Sweetest people!  everyone on this day Glowed.  everyone was so thrilled for these two crosses to cross and be married.  and their pictures Absolutely show all the joy and fun and happiness these two had on this day.  i did narrow my image choices for this blog from 200 to 150, so since thats way more than i like to post, i had to pack them in here.  : )

lauren and andrew married  |  june 6. 2015  |  raleigh. nc

yall know i love me some smilers!  and these two Could Not stop smiling all day long!  if you were anywhere close to them you could Clearly see how much love they have for each other!  the ability to make each other laugh and smile will aid monumentally in dealing with the tough parts of life.  another thing that was abundantly clear was how wonderful both of their families are!  each set of parents have gotten to enjoy watching all their children work hard and become very successful!  it was an honor to get to be a part of their day and to work with lauren and andrew and their families and friends!

and thank you to jennifer haygood for stepping in for an hour so i could go watch my oldest child graduate from high school!
