New Years Day Wedding | Hickory NC | Suzanne & Jeff

I met Suzanne when I photographed her best friend Sarah's wedding in fall 2016. When she contacted me about doing her wedding as well, I was so excited! Jeff and Suzanne chose Harper House as the venue for their small intimate wedding on New Years Day. They got ready with their family and friends, including Jeff's daughter Piper who Suzanne is now a mommy to! Their joy radiated throughout the ceremony and the rest of the day. It was about 30 degrees outside so Suzanne wrapped herself in a fur and we quickly took some photos! Braving the cold was definitely worth it because these two are ADORABLE. My other favorite part of their wedding was that they had a brunch reception! Everyone loves brunch and it's something unique and different to do on your wedding day. After toasts and some special dances, Jeff, Suzanne, and Piper exited through bubbles to their car. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Mayo!

Winter Dairy Barn Wedding | Fort Mill SC | Tarah & Jake

The Dairy Barn is one of my favorite places to shoot in winter. Bare trees, a frozen lake, horses roaming in the background, and Christmas wreaths all over the barn make it perfect for a winter wedding! Before we headed there for photos, Tarah got dressed at their ceremony location - St. Phillip's in Fort Mill. One of my favorite details was a piece of her grandma's clothing sewn into her dress. Jake headed over to Lake Hagler at Anne Springs and once Tarah arrived they had an adorable first look. We then headed up to the Dairy Barn for more photos. Since this was a winter wedding and the sun sets early, the first look allowed us to take all their photos before the ceremony. Tarah and Jake were still emotional for the ceremony and we got stunning photos before it got too dark! After the ceremony at the church, we headed back to the Dairy Barn for food and dancing at the reception. Congratulations on a beautiful wedding day, Jake and Tarah!

Laboratory Mill Wedding | Lincolnton NC | Adelaide & Stephen

Adelaide and Stephen were one of my last weddings for 2017 and they were an adorable way to end it! (Fun side note: I got to shoot Adelaide's cousin's wedding last month!) It was a chilly but beautiful day at The Laboratory Mill where they held their ceremony and reception. Two of my favorite details from their day, Adelaide told me about while she was getting ready. Adelaide's father passed away and inside her dress was a heart sewn in from one his shirts. Along with this, she wore a family ring that she always loved and her mom had earrings and a necklace made to match it. Stephen got ready in the adjoining room and then we set everyone up for the first look. Stephen and Adelaide first read letters from each other and then had a special moment just the two of them. Their joy was radiating throughout the day! After the sun went down, their ceremony took place inside the warmth of the venue. Since we took all their photos beforehand, they got to enter right into the reception not long after the ceremony. After having a first dance, Adelaide danced with her family and Stephen danced with his mom. Throughout the whole day, you could tell Adelaide and Stephen enjoyed spending this special time with family and friends. Thank you for letting me be a part of it!
