jennifer and jamie married | july 26. 2014

the smile on your face lets me know that you need me, theres a truth in your eye saying you’ll never leave me,

the touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever i fall… you say it best, when you say nothing at all…

lauren and corey married
july 18. 2014 | the stockroom

this post is longer than most cause i have a personal attachment to lauren.  she was a babysitter to my kidos (yes i still have her in my phone as “lauren babysitter”) and when she couldn’t babysit them any longer she intro’ed me to CHLOE who is my Very best friend in the whole world.  so i have lauren to thank for her.  and lauren pretty much is amazing on all levels and she picked a great guy, corey, to marry, so all that means this post is long.  oh and because i Loved her details, so there’s a bunch of those shots too.  AND because reverend barbara lodge was their officiant and she married richie and i so yeah… #loveherlovelauren&corey

amanda and jami married
july 12. 2014 | raleigh. nc

amanda and jami’s wedding was Such a fun one!  everyone there was so open and nice to us even though only amanda had met me a couple weeks before.  unfortunately this was a wedding that austin and ashley green were going to photograph, but with his passing only weeks before their wedding date, we stepped in to shoot this wedding for them.  we were glad we weren’t already booked for their date cause we had a great time with them!  i won’t ever forget jami tossing his hand in the air during their intro into the reception and flinging his ring off in the process!  after a quick, frantic search it WAS found!  whew!  and its crazy how we are raleigh wedding photogs but even still we find out venues we never knew existed!  we hadn’t ever heard of “delightful inspirations” but its a great place for an outside ceremony and has a great room inside for the reception!  who knew!  amanda and jami, we are thankful to have gotten to be a part of your day!  yall did a fabulous job with all your details!  loved it all!!

morgan and matt married
june 28. 2014 | asheville. nc

this was a wedding VERY close to our hearts!  matt is the brother of our best friend, nathan, so we know and LOVE this family!  matt did just like his brother and found a PERFECT wife along life’s crazy road.

yes, the rain involved itself in All our june weddings this year!  but the overcast-ness at claxton farms just made everything even More beautiful!  everything went perfectly and it was all so gorgeous!  “the bloom room” did a Fabulous job with all the flowers!  that reception room was Breath-taking!!  the people at claxton farms also worked hard to make everything gorgeous!  super nice people to work with, too!  matt and morgan’s reception was a constant flow of happy tears.  their faces the whole time were just So Sweet!  then come reception time, Let Me Tell you…. they can DANCE!  i won’t ever hear “timber” the same again!!  i always Wanted that dance gene but i was not gifted with it, so i just watched them break it down for hours!  DJ “sound extreme” rocked the reception for sure!   it was an honor to get to photograph this wedding.  we are so lucky to get to work with such fabulous couples!!
