Although Angel and Brad were married in December, you never would have known it! To be completely honest, I was really hoping for snow, but with this crazy North Carolina weather, the day turned out to be one of the most perfect days with a dreamy and beautiful sunset. Angel and Brad were married in the church that Angel grew up in and then celebrated with their closest friends and family at The Sutherland. With deep purple tones, mini hot chocolate favors, and sweet memories of their loved ones who have passed, Angel and Brad's wedding day was filled with deep love and joy. I especially won't forget Angel's sister's singing toast (she changed the lyrics to "Don't Stop Believing"), the sweet Father Daughter dances that Angel shared with Brad's dad and her uncle, and the Christmas themed picture box. From beginning to end, it was a lovely day celebrating the beginning of a beautiful marriage!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Bradley Homer! I am so happy for you both!

Molly and Patrick's Winston-Salem wedding was lovely in every sense of the word. This celebration lasted the entire weekend, and it was filled with friends that love and support them, Molly's feminine touches, Patrick's classy style, family that adores them, and the most thoughtful details that made everyone feel so special. Not to mention - their sweet dog Lucy made an appearance on their wedding day and almost stole the show! The custom wedding map, the fresh rosemary sprigs on every program that smelled so sweet, the blush florals, the veil Molly's mom wore on her wedding day, the beautiful ceremony in a historic Moravian church, Patrick's tailored suit, the custom coozies, Lucy's custom floral leash, the emotional first look, and to end the evening: Molly's Dad singing God Bless America with a group of his friends at the reception!

My favorite wedding celebrations are the ones that represent the couple, that are meaningful, that are unique, that are well thought through. Molly and Patrick did just that - they had a wedding that represented the two of them perfectly. Becca and her team saw that every detail and moment happened flawlessly, and because of that, every moment was filled with joy. I'm also so grateful that Neil and his team at Iron Kite Films was there to capture those moments. It was a lovely wedding from start to finish - Molly radiated beauty, Patrick couldn't stop smiling.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Cahill on the most lovely day!

Molly and Patrick kicked off their wedding weekend with the most beautiful rehearsal dinner! A lovely outdoor patio welcomed each guest as they arrived. Custom cocktails, lovely florals, hues of blush and gold, and of course twinkle lights as the sun set created the perfect atmosphere. You really can't beat the Graylyn - it's a lovely venue that makes every person feel like you are attending a ball at Downton Abbey. Most of all, it was full of laughter, friends, and family that loved Molly and Patrick dearly. Check back tomorrow for their beautiful wedding celebration!

Here are a few of my very favorite moments from Callie and Jamie's wedding day :

- Praying for Callie just after she put on her dress
- Photographing details while my friend Becca styled them
- Stopping to pet a sweet old dog while walking over to the neighbor's yard for a better view. Thanks to us, we accidentally left the gate open and the dog surprised everyone and ran around during the dinner! It was quite funny.
- The mother-son dance. Amazing.
- Stopping to eat!
- Wearing a beautiful gown while shooting. It was the prettiest I've ever felt shooting a wedding!
- Watching Callie give her parents and brothers their gifts
- Watching Jamie open his gift from Callie. His face was priceless!
- Being in the bridesmaids photos
- Photographing Jamie and Callie as they prayed around the door before the ceremony
- The ceremony. Tear filled. Jesus filled. Beautiful.
- Taking the newlyweds out to the dock for some lovely portraits at sunset
- Laughing hysterically at everyone on the dance floor
- Dancing with Will
- Celebrating the best day ever with ice cream at the hotel with the Schultzes and the Wheatons

Callie and Jamie, it was an incredible honor to be standing by your side as you committed your lives to one another. Thank you for inviting us into your most precious day. We are so excited to see how God uses your marriage to change lives. We love you, Mr. and Mrs. Davis!

I truly feel like I am sharing a treasure with you today. I have waited to long to share these images with you, and the day has final come! I cannot look at these images without getting teary, without feeling the same emotions I felt that day. Yes, it's true: I was the photographer and one of Callie's bridesmaids! Yes, it was the craziest day for me, and I dove so deep into the heart of my work because I wanted it to be perfect for Callie and Jamie. But I also stopped and prayed with Callie, I cried when she put on her dress, I stood beside her as she said her vows and gave her life to Jamie, and you better believe I danced with Will at the reception! I would have this day no other way than exactly how it was. It was perfect.

Yes, Callie works with me here in the studio. But what started out as a position as a studio assistant a few years has grown into one of my closest, most treasured friendships. I love this girl. She is like a sister to me, and we spend so much time together. She's younger than I am, but I look up to her in so many ways. She is so passionate about worshiping Jesus, mentoring young ladies through Young Life, photography, marriage, and living life to the fullest. She is an incredible photographer. It has been such a joy to work with her, to watch her grow in the seasons of dating, engagement, and marriage. I have loved mentoring her in business and photography. Honestly, I couldn't imagine doing life without Callie by my side.

Watching her and Jamie together is just fun. If you know them, you know they are crazy. Very crazy. But it's wonderful because they compliment one another perfectly! They are all in with whatever it is they are doing. They are committed and loyal. Jamie is laid back and happy, but there is this crazy-fun side to him that is hilarious! He is also a man full of integrity, and that is obvious in how he lives his life. Callie is organized and artistic and straight forward, always giving a gracious and honest answer. The two of them together are just refreshing and fun to be around.

Their wedding day was a perfect representation of their hearts. More than anything, they wanted Jesus to be lifted high, and He was. They wanted to focus on marriage more than their wedding, and they did. They wanted to love on those around them, to be together, to enjoy their day, to eat their food, to dance together, to stop and acknowledge their friends and family who came so far to celebrate them... and they did each of these things. It was so sweet to see everything unfold, to be a part of a day that was so full and rich of what matters most on a wedding day: marriage and those that are there to celebrate it.

Finally, before I share the rest of these lovely images with you, I need to give credit where credit is due. I would have never been able to photograph this day without lots of help and hands along the way. The work you will see here is a combination of my own, my husband Will's, and the amazing Geoff and Cheyenne Schultz - some dear friends and incredible photographers who dropped everything to help us this weekend. I am so, so grateful to each of you. You allowed me to enjoy this day, you photographed the entire ceremony, you were everywhere I couldn't be, and you gave such a wonderful gift to Callie and Jamie. Thank you. I could not have done this without you!

A big, BIG thank you to Southern Weddings Magazine for making one of my biggest dreams and goals come true by featuring this wedding in your most beautiful print issue SWV7. It was worth the wait! Callie and I are so grateful to each of you! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Stay tuned for Part II tomorrow!

  8. Hannah Elizabeth January 15, 2015 2:57 pm

    I just can’t stop looking at them! Such a gorgeous wedding! I really love her color choices and all of the personalized small details. Do you know where she happened to purchase her getting ready robe? I love it!

  9. Chris Wheaton January 15, 2015 3:14 pm

    Amazing images! It was a blast working together, watching you pull of double duty as photographer and bridesmaid, and seeing Will hustle all day in his NPR apron. Definitely a wedding we will never forget!

  10. BECCA January 16, 2015 2:58 pm

    I just love every single thing about this post. Loved working with Callie and Jamie, and loved being able to work alongside you in those quiet moments before the wedding began. Nancy, I have always loved and admired you for how much you care about our clients and each couple you serve – but I have never been prouder to call you my friend than when I watched you work your tail off for these two, with such a selfless sense of love. It was such a joyful day and you worked so hard and loved them so well.

This wedding celebration was so elegant and beautiful. North Ridge is the loveliest place for a classy and Southern North Carolina weddings - it is a long standing icon in the Raleigh area. I love that Ashley and Nathan chose this for their wedding venue because it is so meaningful to Ashley's family. Ashley's grandmother continues to be involved in all of the events after years of being a member at the club. It represents a wonderful community for their family! Not to mention, it fit perfectly with Ashley's Southern and classic style.

This day was certainly a memorable one! I will never forget watching (and hearing) the thunderclouds roll in as the ceremony took place, and the raindrops that started to fall right after Ashley and Nathan kissed! They safely made it down the aisle, I took a few brief photos of them outside, then we all ran in to take cover. There have only been a few weddings I've photographed in my life that have poured like it did that day! Thankfully, everyone had a wonderful attitude and the guests quickly got to cover. It is always a sign of a mature and wonderful couple when rain doesn't get in the way of a good time. Ashley and Nathan continued to dance and party as if nothing happened, and it was the most beautiful celebration!

I love this sweet couple! Anna and I go all the way back to High School, and I'll never forget her contagious laughter and joy. We were enemies in West Side Story (she was a Jet, I was a Shark), but back stage things were a different story. She was a bit younger than me, but that didn't matter. She loved to have fun and encourage others around her - so what's not to love? Since high school, we've gotten to know one another even more since her parents are the Pastors at our church. It's been amazing to have a front row seat at watching Anna become the woman and wife that she is today.

When Peter came along just over a year ago, it was evident that God had something in store for these two. I have to say - admire Peter. He left his hometown of Seattle (where they met), moved across the US, and pursued Anna to be his wife. He was drawn to her, and nothing was going to get in his way! A little over 1 year later, they are now happily married as husband and wife! The sacrifices he made sure did pay off - he has a lovely bride to call his own.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. McNamara! We are so happy for you both!

We could not have asked for better weather on Caroline and Kevin's gorgeous wedding day. The leaves on the trees were just in the beginning stages of changing colors, there was not a cloud in the sky and the temperature was just right. Their outdoor ceremony was just as lovely as their stunning ballroom reception. Both were decorated beautifully, with soft accents of Caroline's favorite colors.

Caroline was one of the most beautiful brides, poised and calm in her simple, yet unique Audrey Hepburn like wedding gown. And Kevin looked equally handsome next to his stunning bride in his classic tuxedo. I loved the simplicity of this wedding, the sweet words exchanged about each other and the endless smiles and laughter on the dance floor. It sure was an unforgettable celebration of a life long marriage!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Kalbaugh!

Photographing this wedding was such a treat for me. Laura and Dex are not only beautiful people, but they are incredibly gracious and kind. Their wedding was beautiful. (How could it not be in the mountains of North Carolina?) The weather was lovely, the light was dreamy, and I personally adore Laura's wedding dress and classic style. Dex was smitten with her, and I loved seeing his face when he saw her for the first time! It brought tears to my eyes and a huge smile to my face. Goodness, my job never gets old!

The Camp at Eseeola is one of my favorite venues in this state. I fall in love with the blue ridge mountains and fresh mountain air all over again when I have the opportunity to shoot there. But this time, it was different. Dex's family owns a home just minutes from this beautiful venue. We walked out of the doors of the quaint church they were married and stepped into Dex's back yard for family photos! It wasn't a destination wedding - this wedding venue meant so much to them because it is part of Dex's heritage. To me, that's what a wedding is all about - incorporation tradition, heritage, meaningful places and people... then taking all of those things and making it your very own celebration.

Laura and Dex did exactly that. They are perfect for one another, and I loved capturing the start of their marriage together. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Hobbs!

A big thanks to Snippet and Ink for featuring this lovely wedding!

Alison and Doug were married on a gorgeous September day, and it was such a joy to capture their contagious love. Never before have I felt so cared for on a wedding day! They were constantly checking on me and Elizabeth. Not only did they make sure that we had what we needed, they wanted to be sure we were enjoying ourselves during their reception! Honestly, I wouldn't expect anything less from this sweet couple. They are selfless, and it shined through even on a day that was supposed to be all about them. From the genuine prayer around the door prior to their ceremony to the laughter on the dance floor, this day was simple and full of meaningful celebration!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Wilson!
