Greensboro bridal photography: Stacey rocks it out!

Last week we went to the Greensboro Arboretum for Stacey's bridal session. This girl is a classic beauty and she is getting married as we speak! Renee is joining her for her hometown nuptials in Martinsville, but we couldn't wait to show you this lovely bride! The first photos are in Stacey's gown, complete with a birdcage veil by Voulez Veils, and the last ones are in her mother's dress, circa 1980. Words really can't describe how great this session was - Stacey was up for anything and to be perfectly honest, she was good at everything! We're thrilled to be part of her wedding day... stay tuned for some wedding highlights this week!

Belmont Estate wedding photography: Melissa & Marty

Remember that horrific tornadic storm a couple of weeks ago? Well, Melissa and Marty were hoping to have an outdoor wedding at the beautiful Belmont Estate, when the weather rolled in. These two took it all in stride, remembering that no matter what happened, they were still getting to marry each other that day. The storm was a doozy, though, and just about every curve ball that could have been thrown, was. Belmont staff scrambled to set up the wedding in their unique, third floor ballroom (something that, quite frankly, NEVER happens) and all the guests trekked up the three flights of stairs to be part of the event. Fortunately, the power in Reidsville held on just long enough, and went out during the recessional. But we can't stress to you how great Marty and Melissa were about this. Most couples would have been beside themselves, and understandably so, but our newlyweds grinned and made the most of being surrounded by those they love most, counting their blessings along the way. Here are some of the highlights... be sure to leave the couple some love in the comment section, too. They deserve it!

Keepin' it light...

we just love the story this one tells...

pretty petals...

the bride's bouquet...

little toys for little dudes...
Uh-oh!

the ceremony...




the skies cleared, but Marty notices it is awfully windy...

and the veil flies off...

it was just the laugh they all needed...

details...

camera shy? not really...

the happy pair...

all you really need for a first dance is a car radio and a dance partner...




here's that pesky veil again...




you would never know the terrible weather was just a little earlier...

one of the flower girls is a photographer in training!


...and they're off! We wish you sunny skies, guys!

Chapel Hill wedding photography, Jennifer & Jack, the Carolina Inn

Last week, Jonathan and Julie trekked over to the Carolina Inn for Jennifer and Jack's big day! The rain may have foiled any plans for outdoor pictures, but nothing dampened the joy for this couple! They were all smiles, all day, and everything had an elegant, southern charm. Did we mention that Jennifer rocked her Vera Wang gown? Take a look at some of our faves below! And here's to hoping that your Bermuda honeymoon is super sunny! You guys deserve it!
