Kevin and Alexa’s wedding was a dream. It was a very cold, windy dream 😉 But I would rather re-live that feeling where I truly believe my fingers will fall off of my hands again and again if we could also re-live the love that took place that day. Friends and family gathered in Roan Mountain, TN for a relaxed, fun weekend with the couple and their bridal party. Guests stood and watched the ceremony from a distance as Kevin, Alexa and their bridesmaids and groomsmen stood on an overlook with the Tennessee mountain landscape. Vows were exchanged in the chilly mountain air, and the laid-back celebration was held at a nearby cabin. Not a moment went by that wasn’t heavy with genuine happiness from all in attendance! Enjoy a few of our favorites below from Kevin and Alexa’s rustic Roan Mountain wedding day!
Ben and Cynthia’s engagement session was so lovely. We shot during the last weekend in October (always my favorite weekend of the fall… this may or may not have something to do with the fact that it’s always our wedding anniversary weekend), and the weather was perfect. Our girls played quietly off to the side with their grandma as we captured these images of Ben and Cynthia in preparation for their June 2017 wedding. We chatted about how excited we all are for their wedding day BBQ, the church ceremony Cynthia has always dreamed of. It was such a joy to get to know them and get even more excited for their big day. Enjoy a few of our favorites from Ben and Cynthia’s engagement session.
Oh man. What an adventure! Brian and Karine’s destination wedding in NJ was 1 weekend, 24 combined driving hours (several of those in DC traffic lol), 1 flat tire, 1 second-shooter (my wonderful friend Julia of Amore Vita Photography), and ultimately 3 crazy but fun days of working with one of the sweetest couples on earth! Brian has been a friend of our family for many years. He moved to Louisville, KY to attend Southern Seminary, and met Karine when they were neighbors and both working in ministry. They spent many months getting to know each other as friends, unable to discuss the possibility of dating due to the obligations of Karine’s internship. But the minute her internship was over (literally, the minute), they had a relationship-defining talk and soon after, Brian proposed! We met Karine for the first time here in South Carolina, when Brian brought her to town after their engagement. A few months later, we got to take their rainy-day engagement photos while we were in Louisville 3 weeks before their wedding for Michael and Melissa’s wedding! And in July, I got to capture their sweet, backyard wedding in Karine’s hometown in New Jersey. It was blazing hot, but such a wonderful day regardless. It was beautiful to see how perfectly each of them fit in with the other’s friends and family. It was encouraging to see so many friendly faces in a brand new place. And it was an absolute blast to watch the Charleston Southern crew breaking it down HARD on the dance floor (as they do). We’re so thrilled for these two, and know they’re meant for great things. Enjoy some of our favorites from Brian and Karine’s wedding!
