Greensboro wedding photography: Meredith & Matt

Jonathan and Judy had a the privilege of photographing a great wedding last week! The day featured kissing contests, piano serenades, and a unique use of candles during the ceremony, among other things... Meredith and Matt are just the coolest couple. They and their friends were up for anything, and we got some great shots, as you can see below...

getting ready...


the beautiful bride...


the whole congregation got to be part of the ceremony. Each person had a candle, and then 'shared their light' with everyone else, including the bride and groom... very cool!


the happily-newly-married couple!


a little nuzzling never hurt anyone...


did we tell you this group was laid back?


a little something different... the Proximity is such a great spot for drama!


Matt surprised Meredith (and the crowd) with a touching piano serenade...


to the tune of "to Make You Feel My Love"


and then a fun first dance...


Meredith was moved by her father's toast...


beautiful cake from Delicious, as always, with florals from Corum Greenhouse...



Your Friendly Neighborhood dj
kept the floor full all night...


and off they went!

Greensboro wedding photographer: Jamie & Phillip

Jamie and Phillip tied the knot in a sweet ceremony in Snow Camp, NC. Renee and Becki trekked over for their nuptials, and it was totally worth it! They are one of the coolest couples around and we have really enjoyed getting to know them throughout their engagement. You can see their Greensboro engagement session here. Then scroll down for some of the highlights from the wedding day. Congrats guys!
