Greensboro Wedding photography - Traci and Isaiah, the wedding

Traci and Isaiah tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in the Lake Jeanette area of Greensboro this past Saturday, and Jonathan was privileged enough to be asked to join them in the special event. Everything was really laid back and relaxed, but everything looked perfect! The rain cooled us all off during the ceremony, but the sun came out to allow us to get some great shots... and here are some of our favorites from the day...
