January LUXE Styled Shoot

This past January we had the good fortune to put together an amazing styled shoot with some of our very favorite vendors at a new wedding venue in Chapel Hill. Old Lystra Inn made the perfect backdrop for our luxury themed shoot and the owners are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Check out these amazing photos and video below! Here’s to all the talented vendors who help put it all together! See if you can tell that it was 14 Degrees 🙂 Continue reading

Lauren’s Wedding!

Lauren and Jordan were my last couple for 2018 with a December wedding and one of my absolute favorites! We met a few months prior at a bridal expo in Greensboro and I instantly knew that I wanted to be a part of their big day. These two are so incredibly kind and every aspect of their wedding was carefully thought out and filled with love. From the engraved bible to their tearful personal vows, this couple showed all their guests what it is to truly and deeply love and be loved in return. I wish them all the happiness in the world and hope you enjoy their beautiful big day as much as I did! Continue reading

Jessica and B’s Wedding!

Getting to be a part of Jessica and B’s downtown Raleigh wedding was such a blessing not only because I knew Jessica previously but because the love these two share is so authentic and full. Every moment of their wedding day was full of love and the look on their faces was magic. Jessica and B truly melted hearts. Continue reading

Heidi’s Wedding!

Heidi and Jeremy were so fun from the moment we met! Heidi has a love of cats like us and Jeremy was one of the most involved and supportive grooms I’ve met. We met over wine at Vita Vite in downtown Raleigh where they told me about their plans for the wedding and “Best Day Ever”. Heidi was obviously Rapunzel with her long blonde hair and her wedding day was every bit as magical. Continue reading

Heather’s Wedding Day!

Heather and Andrew are such a sweet couple and the minute they reached out about an Outer Banks wedding we were in! The sand, the salt, the sun, everything was such a dream and Heather was definitely the mermaid. The scalloped design on her dress were perfect bridal mermaid scales and absolutely gorgeous.

Rachel’s Wedding!

Rachel and Daniel are one of the sweetest and down to earth couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with so far. When planning their big day, the focus was on being truly present for their big day and spending quality time with their friends and family. Every aspect of their big day was sweet, simple, and family focused. Their save the dates were customized with the Durham city skyline and each venue they chose reflected their unique personal tastes. The two couldn’t have been more loved and their big day was a reflection of that all around. Continue reading

Michaela’s Wedding!

Michaela and Luke’s wedding was one of the sweetest I’ve seen yet. Despite being more reserved as a couple their love was more than obvious from sweet little kisses during the first dance to all the attention they gave each other and their family. Their traditional Catholic ceremony was held at St. Mary’s Basilica and their reception was across the street at The Upper Room 1871 in downtown Wilmington, NC! Both the church and the venue worked so hard to help the couple have the best wedding day possible and I was honored to work alongside such a great group of vendors. Continue reading

Irene’s Wedding!

Irene and Chad were such a great couple throughout planning. They were calm, decisive, and really focused on making their day a celebration of their love. Irene and Chad emphasized their cultural heritage by creating an Around the World Seating chart and having guests from near and far. Their wedding took place at Cedar Grove Acres which was a wonderful mix of rustic and romantic beauty with gorgeous woods, market lights, and more! Their friends and family were fun the whole night, dancing into and out of the reception! Congrats again to the newlyweds 🙂 Continue reading

Molly’s Wedding Reception!

Molly and Nate’s reception following their Hawaii wedding was such a blast! Both they and their family but together the happiest and most fun reception I’ve seen in a while. It definitely didn’t hurt that they had good ol southern BBQ food from Mr. and That Dang Woman’s Catering! The whole night was filled with drinks, dancing and an abundance of love, just as they imaged it would. Congrats again to the Mr. and Mrs!!!!

Wilmington Styled Shoot

This shoot was a less traditional but incredibly fun shoot for all vendors involved. This time we wanted to focus mainly on the bride and groom and their details. We chose the setting as Wilmington in order to get white sandy beaches and of course the beautiful green sand dunes. Beach weddings can get a bit predictable with the bright colors and sea decor. We wanted to create a modern vision with a moody twist that seems to fit current trends a little more closely. Thanks again to everyone involved! Continue reading
