Emily + Nick’s Wedding. Proximity Hotel, Greensboro.

| Posted in: weddings

I have such a treat for you today! This wedding is one of my favorites to date! I had the pleasure of photographing Emily + Nick’s wedding in October but we had to keep the photos under wraps until The Knot’s exclusive feature, which came out yesterday!

Emily is a lifestyle and fashion blogger and lives right here in Greensboro. I was first excited about her wedding because I knew that every detail would be thought of and it was sure to be beautiful! But when I met Emily in person we just clicked and I knew it was going to be a great match! She and Nick are such a sweet pair. It was clear throughout their planning process that while they wanted to take care of their families and guests during the wedding, the day was really about their marriage and celebrating that sacred step in their relationship.

Some of my favorite things about Emily + Nick’s wedding were…
… all the pretty things! Every little detail was so thoughtful and beautiful and I love photographing the getting ready process at the Proximity Hotel! You just can’t beat those big windows.
… working with such a dream team! My second photographer, Anna, is my favorite person to have beside me at a wedding. And sweet Brian and Jenn from Whitewash Films made the day even better. Not to mention all the other amazing vendors listed below!
… the emotion. Sooo many tears and smiles, loving glances, tight hugs, and fun moments to photograph!
… on the same note, Emily’s first looks with her dad and stepdad. They were so sweet.
… late night truffle fries. I don’t think I need to say anymore about that.

Meghan + Josh. High Point Wedding.

| Posted in: weddings

Woo! My last wedding of 2017. What a year! I’m hoping to make a review of 2017 post soon (even though the new year has already begun!) but right now I’ll just say it was a year of fun weddings and wonderful clients. I’m so happy to share Meghan + Josh’s wedding with you tonight!

This wedding was full of the sweetest and most joyful people! I loved being with the girls getting ready at Meghan’s parent’s home while my amazing second shooter, Anna, photographed the guys at the hotel. Meghan + Josh’s sweet pup, Charlie, seemed a little overwhelmed by the wedding prep and just watched it all happen around him. So cute!

Because of winter’s early sunset, Meghan + Josh opted for a first look at the church where they read letters to each other. It was a beautiful moment and I know it calmed some nerves and still gave them that first walking-down-the-aisle moment!

There were so many great moments from this day… hilarious toasts, parents in tears, lots of laughs, and a last dance after the reception cleared out. Meghan + Josh, I hate that our time together is over! You have been so sweet and caring and I know that your partnership together will take you far! Love you guys!

Megan + Daniel. Charlotte Farm Wedding.

| Posted in: weddings

There’s just something special about getting married at a home instead of another wedding venue – especially when the home is your dad’s and it’s also a gorgeous farm! It can make even a 300+ guest wedding seem intimate and close. Megan’s family worked for months and months to make Megan’s wedding dreams come true and I think it was worth it. Can you believe he built that reception barn for her?! It was incredible.

Some of my favorite things…
– Megan’s dog, Bella. She was so sweet and calm in the middle of wedding craziness! She followed Megan everywhere, including down the aisle, and was just so cute!
– Daniel’s entrance to the ceremony. He and the groomsmen drove up from another house all piled in his gorgeous green Chevy. It was so fun!
– Megan + Daniel. They have such a sweet and tender relationship. The way Daniel kept looking at his bride had her melting all day long! Every time I turned around they were stealing a kiss.
– The horses! They were SO into everything that was going on and were trying to follow guests through the gate to the ceremony for a better view. Plus, they were just beautiful!

And finally, I’m always so grateful to have the wonderful and sweet Anna Paschal Photography  shooting with me! Such a sweet friend and amazing photographer.
