We loved getting to know Kate and Steven! We had a blast at their intimate Pinehurst wedding! They got married right before the US Open, so it was fun to be in Pinehurst when everyone was buzzing around getting ready. Their wedding did have a first for the record books for us…there was a Tornado warning the whole day! This did throw their ceremony plan for a loop as it had to then be moved under the porch of the Carolina Hotel, but everything still turned out just perfect! Enjoy some of our favorites!
I get to say this a lot this year....but it's true! There is no greater compliment in this business than to shoot the wedding of a sibling of a past bride or groom. We've had this privilege many times now, and every time we walk into one of these weddings, it's like celebrating with family. Getting to know Katie so much more after knowing Chadd and his family so well for a number of years was icing on the cake. I love these two!
This wedding was a long time in the making. I mean a really long time! Chadd has loved Katie since early in high school but they had to get through college and first jobs and then finally the time was right to tie the knot! Katie, a straightforward and honest girl after my own heart, surprised even herself with the emotions she felt on her wedding day! This was probably my favorite part of the day: seeing Katie be overwhelmed with love for Chadd and all of the excitement of being a bride hitting her all at once. Chadd is as standup as they come and at the reception, a special surprise dance with his aunt "Mer" had even me in tears. It was that sort of day...full of surprising emotion coming out of the joy everyone felt for these two.
Enjoy some of our favorites...we love anytime we can get out to Irish Creek as well! Look for their fusion video to come soon, too! Happy viewing!
This was the original cake topper from her grandmothers wedding! LOVE!
In honor of this boys third birthday that just happened- Sweet Griffin and Elliot! I can't believe I haven't posted these before now! I love these little monsters so much! We shot these back in the spring- I haven't seen Elliot in a little while, I am sure he is HUGE! These were his 6 months pics. Hillary and David make big 'uns just like Joe and I! Seriously can't wait for our boys to be the "neighborhood gang" with each other. Happy Friday, ya'll!
