Just Married: Chris and Layton

The day Chris and Layton were married was a gorgeous day on the lake, and they couldn’t have picked a more beautiful venue to have their wedding than Travis Pointe at Lake Norman.  The venue sits on a peninsula surrounding by water.  Perfect for a lakeside ceremony!

Chris and Layton picked to do an intimate “first look” prior to the wedding.  Layton, a beautiful red head came behind Chris and hugged him.  As Chris turned around, he had a big smile came across his face as he saw his bride for the first time.  These interactions made for a sweet “first look”.

The wedding ceremony was just as sweet with intimate moments and songs from family member and the first communion between Chris and Layton.  As for the reception, it had by far the best wedding food I have ever tasted.  The salmon wellington was out of this world!  I’ve never had salmon that amazing since.  I could really go on for days about this salmon wellington and I often thought that I should visit the caterer again, just to order some for myself!

The dance floor was filled for the whole event.  People were dancing, eating and being merry.  It was a glorious occasion.  And while family and friends were partying on the dance floor, we had time to sneak away with the bride and groom for some nice romantic photos.  While it was still daylight, the sky was big and blue and made for perfect lakeside photos with the bride and groom.  But once the sun went down, we were also able to capture some wonderful night shots that the couple loved.  These made for perfect shots to end the night.  We loved working with Chris and Layton.  They are very down to earth and caring people that we hope to enjoy more with in the future.  We wish them all the happiness with their marriage and their future!

Featured Wedding: Chris and Kaleigh

Their Wedding is finally on the blog! Remember Chris & Kaleigh? our awesome duo of first responders? If not, go check out their engagement session, and you’ll see why I’m so excited about their wedding. Everything was lovely. Kaleigh made me smile when she paired up a lovely princess wedding gown with a pair of white Toms. She just looked marvelous. The sky was bright, and everyone was dressed in their best and had smiles on their faces. The flowers were beautiful. Poppies Floral did a magnificent job creating beautiful arrangements of purple and white decorations.

 

And then it started raining.

 

I have to be honest with you, for a brief moment I stressed out, but then I remembered that I have awesome couples. I went back into the bride’s room and Kaleigh was already set on going out anyways. Everyone dug out umbrellas, we got our gear rain ready, and we made sure it wasn’t a thunderstorm (safety first).  So now it was time for our beautiful bride, Kaleigh to walk down the aisle at The Orchard House in Concord, NC. Nothing was going to stop these two, with mom and dad walking her down the aisle, the split a sea of umbrellas to meet Chris at the end of the aisle. Everyone stayed nice and close making for a really intimate ceremony. The Reception was a blast, Lots of dancing, beer can pyramids, delicious food. A beautiful launch of an amazing couple. May they have many years of happy memories ahead of them.

Just Married: Jess and Joe

I can’t think of a more cute couple than Jess and Joe.  Their wedding was so creative, heavily detailed, unique and beautiful.  Every table centerpiece was different from the next.  Even down to the groomsmen’s socks matching the wedding colors, yellow and grey.  The decor and details were amazing! This wedding was also heavily themed around games.  During the cocktail hour, there was croquet, cornhole and even a magician.  Jess and Joe love playing games and activities, so they brought this element to their wedding for their guest. Jess wore an elegant lace gown to meet Joe down the aisle for the most unique ceremony we have ever seen.  They sent around their wedding bands so each guest could bless their rings and their marriage.    What a wonderful addition to a ceremony.  The ceremony also included a truce bell, that the couple can have through their marriage to use to call any “truce” needed. Of course, this night would not have been complete without gathering the guest in a big field behind the reception tent at The Orchard House, in Concord, NC and releasing paper lanterns before returning to the party for more celebration!  There was cake; there was dancing and there was a really fun photo booth!  We ended the night with a Jess and Joe sparkler send off.  We wish them the best in their marriage and all the happiness in the world!
