Jamie and Matt, the wedding

Jamie and Matt... what can we say? What great couple! They were just so easy to work with at their beach wedding on Wrightsville Beach, and they were just so happy to be getting married. Our friend Rachel from Bridal by the Sea kept everything running smoothly, and it was just an all around great day. Jamie and Matt live in the Boston area, but decided that a destination wedding was the way to go... and we couldn't agree more! We also think they're cool because they are big Red Sox fans (Matt and Jonathan actually went to a game at Fenway earlier this year)... thanks guys, and hope to see you at the ballpark again!

The weather report was spot on...

Jamie and her girls loved to laugh...

Matt and his guys stayed cool...

Tabitha and Scott, the reception

Tabitha and Scott got married in Thailand, had reception #1 in Tampa, and we came along to reception #2 at the Pinehurst resort. The weather was fantastic, and the setting was gorgeous of course. There were fun twists and turns, and it was also Scott's 30th birthday. These guys really knew how to whoop it up!

Tabitha, Scott, and the whole crew...

First dance at the third party...

He warned her not to smash...

Melissa and Les, the wedding

Jonathan and Elise made the drive down to Charlotte for Melissa and Les' wedding at Belk Chapel, and reception at Providence Country Club. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and nothing could get these two from smiling all day! Les is a former Clemson football player, and has a heart as huge as he is, and Melissa couldn't be any sweeter if she tried. Thanks guys, we had a great time!

Melissa and Les decided to see each other before the wedding, and it was sweet...

Melissa and the girls channeling their inner Southern Belles...

and then their inner divas...

adorable...

it's a done deal!

beautiful cake and flowers...

Soiree Charlotte provided the centerpieces and kept everything running smoothly...

all bow down to the queen of the day!

have a great time in Mexico!

Beth's Senior session

On Friday, we went to Winston-Salem to photograph Beth's senior portrait session. We hung out downtown and found all sorts of fun places to shoot. Beth is graduating in June and will head to UNC Wilmington in the Fall. Have a great summer, Beth!
