We loved getting to work with Stephanie and Ryan!  Last year sometime I met with Stephanie's parents who vetted her photographer choices, and I am so glad they helped to give her the two thumbs up for using me:)  Stephanie and Ryan and both of their families are simply amazing. True, salt of the earth people- and they really just came together and celebrated these two getting married and FINALLY being able to live together in the same state after dental programs kept them apart the past few years!  We loved getting to work at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, even if it was one of the hottest days of the year!  The fun and celebration kept everyone smiling!  We never forget what a blessing it is to get to capture couples on the happiest day of their lives!   Enjoy some favorites from their big day and take a look at their photo fusion video we shot for them, too!  Happy Friday!

sweet, sweet sisters!!!  Love these three!

the perfect ring prop:)

Let's talk about when I am able to shoot the family formals after the wedding in perfect, backlit sun.  Amazing!

 

This girl.  Padgett.  I love her so so so much!  I had THE MOST fun working with her and her family(whoop whoop to her two adorable sisters, too....and mom!)  She's hilarious....in the most darling and endearing way of probably anyone I've ever met! She and Carson are so great together and their wedding was perfect!  It was August, it could have been hot and horrible- but instead the day was cool and easy.  Unseasonable weather for these two!  They totally lucked out! Joe and I loved getting to spend this day with you.  You make us smile, and you make everyone around you smile, too.  There was the little case of the food poisoning that hit Padgett in the MIDDLE of the reception.  Most girls would have totally shut down and turned into a puddle, but Padgett handled it like a total champ and rallied to get back on the dance floor.  That was definitely a first in the over 100 weddings we have shot!  But that's Padgett:)  I hope you two are loving married life- I am happy you are married, but sad it's over!  Love to you both!  { Don't forget to watch their photo-fusion video at the end, too!}

 

Life is full of so many full circle moments lately!  Mary Chandler was a bridesmaid in Katelyn's wedding- oh how I adore when past bridesmaids turn brides!  When we did their engagement sessions last fall, I met Will and learned he was going on Young Life staff.  How fun!  Well, then, at MC's bridal portrait, I learned Will had been placed on staff in Salisbury!  Where I was on staff for three years!  So fun!  The people in Salisbury are THE BEST and I know they are going to make these two newlyweds feel right at home and part of the family.  And what a gift Salisbury is getting in Will!  I loved my time getting to work with these two and their wonderful families! Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day- and also their Photo Fusion at the end! Don't forget to take a look.  Happy Monday!

 

Working with Morgan and Sam this past year has been so much fun!  They are one of those couples that I actually sorta hate to see the wedding come and go because I know I won't have as many opportunities to see them!  Their wedding in Blowing Rock was just pretty as a picture (see what I did there??;)).  Morgan and her maids were such a dream to work with and Sam and the guys made the day so fun!  The rain held off and left us with the mountain fog…which made for some amazing moments.  Their fusion is one of my favorite ones to date!  Check it out at the bottom of this post.  Morgan and Sam- hope the summer has been kind to you sweet newlyweds.  Hope to see you at a friends wedding, soon!
