I have been waiting to share this beautiful wedding, and I am so happy that today is finally the day! Kaitlin, one of my dear friends who owns Simply Put Vintage and Kaitlin Holland Creative (she also founded the School of Styling. Yes, she is quite talented!) married Clay, who has a heart for the Lord, for ministry and for planting churches. What an incredible couple!

It was no surprise to me that Kaitlin put together one of the most beautiful and unique wedding celebrations I've ever had the honor of photographing. My favorite part about it all was the simple fact that their day was driven by love. Yes, it was beautiful, but they displayed love that runs deep in their family relationships, in their friendships, and especially their passionate love for the Lord. While the day was absolutely beautiful, the true beauty came from within these two beautiful people.

Kaitlin and Clay, words cannot express what an honor it was to photograph your wedding celebration!

Below: This had to be my favorite detail from their wedding. Kaitlin and Clay personally wrote letters to each of their guests, which greeted them at the entrance of the ceremony. Can you imagine how special that would make you feel at a wedding? I loved this small touch that meant so much!

Anna and Barrett have waited for this day for a long time. They met for the first time in 7th grade, but it wasn't until junior year of high school that they really connected though - in French class. After knowing one another for so many years, and then dating for several years after that, one can only imagine how sweet it must have been to wake up that morning and say, "today is the day!" I personally loved their story as it's so similar to ours: Will and I have known each other since middle school, and we began dating just after my junior year of high school. There is nothing greater than watching someone become your friend, your best friend, your boyfriend, your fiancé, and finally, your spouse. The wait makes the day so much sweeter!

When I asked what made them unique as a couple, they said these simple words: "We have withstood the test of time." That is true. And honestly, that's the stuff that good, lasting marriages are made of. Commitment. Time. Selflessness. Patience. Barrett and Anna certainly have a firm foundation for a strong and lasting marriage.

What stood out to me particularly about these two is their personalities. Anna is vibrant, type "A," punctual, and passionate. Barrett is laid back, funny, charming, quiet, and loyal. I love how different they are, because they compliment one another perfectly. Not only were they smiling from ear to ear all day, but their families were celebrating with more joy and tears that I've seen in a long time. It was a sweet day of celebration!

Anna and Barrett's lovely rehearsal dinner was held at the Angus Barn Pavilion. It was everything a summer rehearsal dinner should be! I've never seen a bigger groom's cake, or so many sets of corn hole, or heard so many wonderful toasts. The group of friends that honored Anna and Barrett stepped up, one by one, with beautiful speeches prepared. I'm not exaggerating when I say the entire room was laughing one moment, then crying the next! (Including me!) It was such a meaningful time of sharing; it truly was how every rehearsal dinner should be. To end the evening, Anna and Barrett strolled over by the open fire pit to roast some s'mores and chat with their family. It was a beautiful evening, all around.

Katherine and Chris's wedding day was truly a day not to be forgotten. Every detail was carefully selected by the bride, and she and her groom absolutely relished every moment of their big day. From the sweet moments getting ready to their friends and family dancing the night away and all moments in between, they celebrated and shared in the joy of starting their lives together with a room full of people who adore them. Oh, and the weather was phenomenal - one of those rare dry, warm May days that happen before the North Carolina humidity sets in for the summer. What more could you possibly ask for?

This couple is precious. Throughout the past year, in doing their engagement session, chatting on the phone with them, communicating back and forth via email and then all day on their wedding day - I've really enjoyed getting to know them. They are - truth be told - reserved at first. But with each conversation and each meeting, you see their personalities start to blossom right in front of your eyes and you really understand why they are perfect for each other.

Katherine and Chris - thank you for allowing us to shoot your wedding. Congratulations on the beginning of a beautiful life together!

In the past few months, I've collaborated with my talented and gracious friend Becca, founder and creative director of Rebecca Rose Events, based in Winston-Salem. She's had this secret project up her sleeve to debut along with her new website, which launched just last week! These images showcase the RRE team, Becca's creative styling, and the process of planning that she leads each of her couples through.

Let me first tell you that photographing Becca and the RRE team, along with these beautiful details, has been one of the highlights of my year thus far. Truly, working with these women in their studio was equivalent to a day full of laughter. I don't know how they do it, but somehow they are professional and lighthearted at the same time, and I adore it. They challenge me to be creative, brave, and joyful. I've known Becca the longest and have come to call her a dear friend. I am always challenged and inspired by her. I love the way she sees things - she is an artist to her very core. She loves her clients well, and she loves to create. Not to mention - she loves film. So when she began to explain the vision behind this shoot, I was all in!

Enjoy these beautiful images, and be sure to enjoy her newly launched Rebecca Rose Events and her soon-to-launch Rebecca Rose Creative!

Meredith and AC's wedding was one of the sweetest weddings I've ever photographed. I admit it - I have a thing for small, intimate weddings. Then you add the fact that this sweet wedding took place in the small rural town of Clinton, North Carolina - the town where my mama grew up - and this photographer couldn't have been happier. Then you add the fact that the bride and groom wanted to have their portraits made in a nearby cornfield, and I was just beside myself with happiness! (Yes - keep scrolling. Those cornfield images are worth it!)

I think most of all, though, my favorite thing about this wedding was how Meredith and AC didn't want a lot of "fanfare" surrounding their big day. In a world of Pinterest and blogs and details, this mindset was just so refreshing. They had meaningful details, but they kept things simple. They wanted conversation rather than dancing. They wanted a Scripture filled ceremony in the church Meredith grew up in more than they wanted a popular venue. They wanted to love on their families more than they wanted to be the center of attention. And it showed - in every way, this couple loved. They loved one another, they loved their families, they loved their guests. They played with the kids and they visited every table. And at the end of the evening, when the sparklers faded and the sky was a rich blue, I know that this sweet couple had no regrets. They had a beautiful, simple wedding, filled with a lot of love.

Congratulations, Meredith and AC!

I could photograph Emily and John all the time and never tire of them. They are truly some of the most kindhearted people I've ever met! Softspoken, always smiling, caring, loving, and full of joy - these two are a breath of fresh air. Emily and John never focus on themselves, as they are completely selfless and loving towards one another, their friends, and their families. Even on their own wedding day, when all the attention was on them, they kept a close eye on the other - always making sure they were okay and taken care of. And walked around with smiles they couldn't shake! (John's smile is just the best. He couldn't hide it if he tried!) They are the perfect fit for one another. The focus of their reception was undoubtedly their guests, and boy did they have a good time! I've never seen such dancing in my life! 99.9% of the guests were on the dance floor 99.9% of the time. It was an exciting celebration enjoyed by all. Every aspect of this wedding was beautiful and full of joy. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Melvin!

I knew I would love this couple from the minute I met them. What I didn't realize was how much I would come to admire them individuals, how much I would grow to love their families, how much Will and I would connect with them as friends. I have loved every minute I've spent with Joel and Jordan! They love one another deeply, they are confident and content in who they are, they love Jesus, they have friends who are more like brothers and sisters than anything else. I honestly felt refreshed after spending time with them, whether it was for their engagement session, Jordan's bridal session, or their wedding day. Their genuine personalities are so real and honest. They are the kind of people who don't try to prove anything, but their focus is always on the person in front of them. I felt so loved and cared for every time I interacted with them! I am so grateful for the opportunity to not only capture this sweet season of their lives, but to also get to know their hearts.

Before we continue on to the photos - I have to share a little bit of the story of Sally. Sally is the most adorable pup you'll see pictured below, and she played quite the important role in their relationship! When  Joel and Jordan began dating, Jordan would take Sally running with her. (Yes, I also have a soft spot for pups who are running buddies!) Shortly after they began dating, Jordan and Joel decided it wasn't going to work out between them anymore, so they stopped seeing each other. But Jordan simply couldn't bring herself to say goodbye to Sally quite yet, so she kept swinging by Joel's house to pick her up to go running. After many runs with Sally the dog, and after spending much time in thought and prayer, Jordan realized she was pretty miserable without Joel in her life. They tried dating again, and the rest is history! I love how Sally was part of their wedding day. She was the special messenger who delivered the notes and gifts prior to the ceremony, even in the rain!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Fleming! So happy for you two.

There's something about backyard weddings that just gets me. Colleen and Fletcher's backyard wedding was so meaningful and so beautiful - the perfect combination for a wedding celebration! When we arrived in Cary to begin photographing the bridal party as they got ready, it was dark and rainy. We grabbed our umbrellas and equipment and headed to the reception to drop off a few things, when we quickly learned that they moved the ceremony location to the same spot as the reception, in order to provide a tent for their guests. Although it wasn't the original plan, it was the gracious thing to do considering the weather. And what I loved most about it? Colleen and Fletcher were so easy going about it! They went about their day as if this had been the plan all along.

The location that I'm referring to spanned across 3 homes and 3 yards - all belonging to family members. It was the place that felt like home for Colleen, and it was so nice to have the gentlemen in one house and the ladies in the other. The back yards were the perfect setting for the portraits, the first look, and of course the tented reception! It was so lovely.

There were so many fun cultural elements to this wedding as well. Colleen's brother performed beautiful melodies on his bagpipe while wearing his Scottish kilt, and there were hints of Spanish words everywhere, too! I met Colleen in Spanish class in college, and since she lived in Spain for a season, it was only appropriate. It was personal and fun - everything about this wedding was charming.

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. O'Cain!

Kristin and Dan's wedding could have not been on a more beautiful day outside at The Sutherland. After a long winter, it was finally beginning to feel like spring! The trees were blooming, there wasn't a cloud in the sky, and the air was so warm. When I arrived to The Sutherland, the girls were getting ready and Kristin was glowing. Her love for Dan is deep, and today would mark the day that she would spend the rest of her life with him. Their love is sweet and simple.

Although a wedding day is supposed to be about a bride and groom, it was important to Kristin and Dan to plan a celebration where their guests were entertained from beginning to end -and they did just that! The reception was filled with delicious food, beautiful table details, sweet conversations and lots of dancing! A-Town A-List kept the night going and the guests constantly entertained with dance contests, Michael Jackson's Thiller dance and fun props! I learned that this band does not create a set list but instead calls the songs on stage depending on the crowd. How awesome is that?

Congratulations Kristin and Dan on a beautiful wedding celebration! Thank you for allowing me to be apart of it all!
