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!
