A Kress Terrace wedding - Sarah and Matt

What a great day for a rooftop wedding! Sarah and Matt were about as laid back as bride and groom could be. Everything just flowed naturally and everyone enjoyed each others' company. Kress Terrace held the festivities and it was just fabulous! See for yourself...

 The venerable Biltmore Hotel hosted the getting ready portion of the day...

some bling...


the beautiful bride...


the dashing groom...

the first look...


what's better than seeing friends on your wedding day?

so "Mad Men"

checking the scores...

an homage to the new last name...


there's something special about a bride coming up the aisle, especially when it's to something cool like Florence and the Machine...


Kress Terrace looked great...




We caught Sarah "pinning" Matt... it's a game they and all their friends play... Pin your friend and see how long it takes them to figure it out!

it didn't take Matt long.

Hi fives all around!

so true... sage advice from PF Chang's


cupcakes by Delicious bakery...

the view from Kress Terrace is hard to beat...

a touching speech from Sarah's sister...

and a sweet first dance...

and paper Chinese lanterns to fire up the night sky!



good night, Greensboro... and thanks for a great day Sarah and Matt!

Greensboro wedding photography: Jessica & John

We had the privilege of photographing Jessica and John's glorious wedding a few weeks ago, what a lovely couple and event! And what a great family too... in addition to photographing Jessica's bridal session with them, we ran into each other at the park and out shopping. We agree with Jessica's mom... it's like we are family now! :-) And these guys know how to have fun! Jessica and John were pretty much on the dance floor the whole night, cutting it up!  Thanks for inviting us to the party!

The ceremony was held at Greensboro's new St Pius X church, and the reception followed at The Empire Room.

A beautiful day for a wedding!

Something old, something new... Something borrowed, something blue... And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

Watch those hands!



sassy!

playing it cool...

kisses for boys...

and dads...


just before kickoff...


love love love this moment...





married!


styly ride from Sterling Carriage...

a sweet first dance...

that ended in a flourish...

Triad DJ service had them on the dance floor all night...

and Delicious had them licking their lips...





Botanica's florals took flight...

but the garter was not as popular...



thanks guys, can't wait to put together the album!
