Garrett and Diana | Greensboro Wedding | The Groome Inn

You know, when I think about weddings I think about feeling loved. I got in to photographing weddings because I was [and still am] so in love with--love. With the hustle and bustle of fall wedding season, it is so nice to take a step back and marvel at some of the best love you've come across. I think about Garrett and Diana.

I met Garrett and Diana late last year and completely fell in love with them! Yes! I know, I fell in love with a couple! The entire process of collaborating with them was filled with so many laughs, well wishes, and even cookies. Diana, you are a great baker! This has been one of my favorite weddings of the year, simply because of the company that I was with. Not only were Diana and Garrett a dream to work with, their entire wedding party was a blast and so so so nice to myself and second shooter [Sean] come wedding day. It is the little things that I remember, like having people ask if I needed water. Good couples bring good company.

The day was a dream! The week leading up to the wedding was such a drag in regards to weather. I was constantly checking to see if Saturday would be rainy, but it wasn't! The rain had stopped the day before and gave us the perfect little glow at their ceremony site. Garrett and Diana said their nuptials at the gorgeous Groome Inn, located in Greensboro, NC. The ceremony backdrop was all of the good things rolled in to one; the cutest little benches, a sweet little chandelier, and a beautiful green patched arbor that framed the two of them.

Along with the amazing backdrop of their venue, they brought so many adorable details that really made their day theirs. One of my favorite pieces were the canvases they had made from our engagement session! Seriously, my couples are the best! They looked so well hanging up in the venue!

All in all, this was one of the most fun weddings I've photographed this season! The couple danced like none other [to some of THE BEST old school R&B music] and there was even an impromptu serenade. To say that I am sad this day is over is truly an understatement.

Congratulations you two!

Courtney and Danuel | Williamston, NC Wedding

Oh my sweet goodness! I am so so happy to have Courtney and Danuels wedding images ready for you guys to view! I met Courtney a few years ago at our Alma Mater, NC State. We became instant friends from the beginning, and I have been so thrilled to share with her many memories on her wedding day.

The day started out at Courtney's sisters house near Bear Grass, NC. If you have never been to northeastern North Carolina, it is a part of the country that has one of the best steakhouses in America--Deadwood. Seriously, it's amazing and you should definitely check it out if you are in the area! Afterwards, Courtney met her parents for their very own first look. Courtney and Danuel wanted to keep with the tradition of only seeing one another at the altar, however her parents were another story! I loved this little detail. It gave the parents that first look of their baby girl in her wedding dress--it was precious to watch.

The venue set upon the Roanoke river in Williamston, NC and had the best views imaginable. The venue, Moratoc Park, was a sacred place to Courtney as her grandfather use to take her there to go fishing. Danuel wanted her to have there wedding day at this very special venue to incorporate her Grandfather since his passing. He was definitely there in spirit!

All in all, the wedding was beautiful and in every way Courtney and Danuel! This couple has grown so much to my heart--its been a dream collaborating with this sweet couple from beginning to end. I, sincerely, wish the two of you a lifetime of love and happiness.

Cheers!
 

Courtney | Bridals | Somerset Place in Creswell, NC

Oh my word, y'all! I have been dying over here waiting to post these gorgeous beauties to the blog! The wait was well worth it. Yesterday Sean and I drove down to good ol' Williamston, NC to photograph Courtney and Danuel's sweet wedding! Since Danuel has now married his beautiful bride, I can now show the world our bridal session.

Courtney and her mom met me at Somerset Place in Creswell, NC. It's crazy--I grew up native to this area and this was the first time I ventured to this part of the world. Needless to say, I am so glad they did! It is the sweetest little old plantation house with scenery meant to make your jaw drop. I highly recommend to visit here if you are ever in the area. 

Since Courtney's wedding was "Southern" themed, she thought Somerset Place would be the perfect fit for her session! I can not say that I blame her for thinking that! Enjoy these portraits of Mrs. Denny!
 

Joy | Durham, NC | Bridals

You guys!!!

I mean, don't you just love a good bridal session?! I have to admit, these are probably one of my favorite portrait sessions to do. It acts as "me time," for the bride, and also gives you some set images to mull over before your big day!

Below is a set of images taken of our model Joy. She's gorgeous, and not just your average kind of pretty. I love that dark hair of hers! Paired with a bright lip, she's the perfect Snow White for the summer. Both dresses, which can be found at Tre Bella in downtown Durham, are breathtaking on her! As always, Makeup For Your Day did an amazing job on prepping this swoon worthy lady for her beauty close-ups!
