Ashley + Brian. Proximity Hotel.

| Posted in: weddings

It was such an honor to be part of this unique wedding day… Ashley dressed in her stunning blush gown, and Brian in his tux, and they met in the downstairs lobby with rain streaming down the ceiling-high windows to share a moment and a kiss before their second wedding of the weekend. We photographed some family portraits and sent them back upstairs to change into their traditional Korean wedding garb (with lots of help from Brian’s mom) before a short Korean wedding ceremony. Another outfit change and bustle of the dress and they got to enjoy a beautiful and super fun reception late into the night.

Ashley + Brian. Glendale Springs Inn Wedding.

| Posted in: weddings

I’m so honored that I got to share the entire wedding weekend with this couple. They were married in a short, intimate ceremony in the mountains on Friday evening and treated me just like one of the few friends and family members that were in attendance. Everyone gathered in the lawn to watch Ashley and her dad walk around the corner to a ceremony led by Brian’s sister. It was short, sweet, sealed with a kiss, and followed by an amazing dinner at the Inn’s restaurant. I love the sweet moment that Ashley shared with her grandpa during the dinner. The tears shed during a toast by one of Ashley’s best friends. The hilarious “cake cutting” bite exchange that included cake for Ashley and a piece of meat for Brian. We also got to step out for a few minutes of portraits in the most beautiful summer sunlight so, yeah, it was pretty great :)
(I’ll be sharing their Korean ceremony and beautiful reception at the Proximity hotel next!)

Ashley’s Bridal Session.

This beauty was married (in two ceremonies!) last weekend so I finally get to share her bridal portraits from this spring. After a couple of setbacks with our original location, we ended up shooting at the Blandwood Mansion in Greensboro which turned out to be the perfect choice for this overcast day! This dress is just one of three from the weekend but I am IN LOVE with Ashley’s blush bridal gown. The layers and layers of flowy tulle were just perfect!

Makenna + Dylan. Engagement Session

| Posted in: engagements

A few months ago I got a phone call from my Aunt Kerri in California “Hi Alexa! Makenna is thinking about committing to a man for the rest of her life. Would you… recommend it, highly recommend it, or not recommend it??” Of course, I highly recommended it and can’t wait to see my cousin walk down the aisle in August!

Makenna and Dylan were able to come out East for my brother’s wedding in May so we got to meet the man and I think we all approve ;) I’m so glad we were able to schedule a last minute engagement session on the morning they headed back home!
