hello, friends! and welcome: to the wonderful madness that is may’s wedding season! we are so excited to bring you a sneak peak of regan and coty’s wedding from a recent friday afternoon.  hang on to your diy hats! this wedding has it ALL! how do you pull off a wedding with only 3 flowers (TOTAL!)? well, just take a look! regan worked tirelessly for months to create a thoughtful and truly unique experience for she and coty’s wedding day.  my favorites? let’s see….well, they literally tied a knot during the ceremony, there was a surprise “evolution of dance” dance in lieu of a traditional slow dance, action figures in lieu of boutonnieres on the groom and groomsmen, and SMASHING cutting of the incredible cake made by the bride’s mom!!! i could go on and on, but just take a look!  thank you regan and coty for letting me be a part of your special day! hope you’re enjoying the honeymoon cruise!

hugs,

mel

hi there! welcome to a sweet little preview of sarah and josh’s recent morning wedding in wake forest, nc.  i had the pleasure of shooting sarah’s sister’s wedding a couple years ago (hi, jenny and cad!) and really enjoyed getting to see their family again!

so…where to start? so much to say about this day!… Sarah is an artist; she owns and operates Bella Joviality Stationery and designed the stationery suite, all the signage and the favors (so cute!).  her artful touch was all over – the ceremony, the place settings, the lawn games – ALL the details and thought sarah put into making this such a memorable and beautiful day.  the rain waited until after the ceremony (yay!) and showed up for a bit of the reception, but it didn’t dampen the crowd’s spirits….such a great bunch! The music was incredible thanks to the patrick rock band…two guys with guitars have to be pretty talented to entertain a tent full of people, and they did!! This venue is a little gem in the raleigh area – the sutherland – if you’re getting married in the triangle, it’s absolutely worth a look! Oh, and HOW could i forget?!….their “getaway” car…a bright red ferrari! such a unique day – it was truly yours, sarah and josh! congratulations and hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon out west!!

hugs, m

Hi, friends! Thanks for stopping by! Our busiest week of the year is upon us; we are so grateful for getting with work with all these lovely couples! We are so pleased to show you Meghan and Mike’s Folly Beach wedding! Remember their Charleston engagement session? These two are so laid back and so happy to be hitched – just look at all these smiles! Not only was it a fun bunch of folks, it was hands-down the *fastest* ceremony we’ve ever documented – they were wasting NO time! :) Congratulations to you both, we hope to see you again soon!
