Hello once again and welcome to the blog. This weeks feature guests are Heather and Steve. A gorgeous couple whom planned their wedding from North Carolina in between living their normal lives. They had help from Katie DePoppe from RSVP events and planning and the day went off without a hitch thanks to impeccable planning. The reception was done beautifully by High Cotton. The mosquitos were taking a break at the mosquito lounge, and the stars aligning in our favor. I couldn’t be happier the mosquitos were cashing in on dollar bloody mary’s at the lounge instead of infiltrating our day. That was a big relief! I wished they ran that special more often. Anyone who has ever tackled our state bird on any given swampy evening knows exactly what that is such a breath of fresh air when they decide to cut us a break.
Girl after my own heart. PINK!! That color never gets old to me.. Instantly makes me ten shades of happier whenever I see it.
Now, look at Heather in all her gorgeousNESS. I’m sure that isn’t an official word.. but I’m pretty certain it should be.
And she thought ahead of time to put something on the bottom of her shoes. I love that.
I don’t know much in terms of folklore, but since these things live only a matter of hours.. or so I’ve read. I would have to say it’s pretty FAB this ended up in their wedding images. Pretty magical if you ask me.
I like this because you can see her cascading over the bridge behind him.. I’m sure he was antsy with excitement to see her – you can see the underlying expression even though he is holding it together rather better than most. He didn’t even peak.
I’m finding it hard to keep this under a few images. They had quite a few really good shots but I’m trying to find the more unique ones to their wedding.
Sweet little ride that someone gifted them. I think I was lucky to end up w a crock pot as a gift when I got married.
Congratulations Heather and Steve. I’ve made great friends in the process of sharing their day with them. That makes for a perfect situation.
Until Next Time.
Not only are getting married this beautiful (xing fingers) weekend BUT… they are also the Winner of my Engagement Image Contest that wrapped November 10th. They won customized Christmas Cards to send out this year designed exclusively FOR them with their image selection! Congrats to Nat and Greg!
In the era of mass email and computer lingo it will be nice to send out REAL PAPER Christmas cards to their friends and family. Some of my favorite collectables are old vintage Valentines cards and post cards. I love old stationary and had started a vivd collection of old love letters, mainly Valentines (my birthday is Valentines day, therefore the theme) quite some time ago. I cherish that collection so much – there is something charismatic reading the words of someone’s heart, even the slightest hint of their story within those old love letters. I love stationary so much that Erica designed my logo and mentioned an old postage stamp theme, and instantly I was in love with the idea. I’ve always loved good papers and stationary and writing letters, and receiving letters. The idea of Natalie and Greg sending out cards this Christmas with an image I was able to provide them with just || THRILLS || me!!
This was the image decided upon by YOU! Thank you for voting. It was a close race with Michael and Morgan’s images but Victory prevailed. Everyone commented and stated this looked like a real moment and Natalie just beamed. I concur. They are a very fun couple who are very at ease with each other. They played a lot and wrestled often. I watched entertained most of the time.
Cute. She looks like she is in the for the ride of her life!
Ah! Warmth. Me and the sun. Old chums.
Doesn’t she have great eyes? The camera loves her. I have been talking to her for such a long time now, I can barely believe we are finally at our crunch time. She has been planning this wedding for so long that she confided in me that someone she worked with thought she was just kidding about getting married bc it’s been in the works for such a long time now. Well believe it. We are a matter of hours away from the big day!!
I think this is one of my last sessions I did with my Canon. Bittersweet break up! Me and the Camera that is. No worries. I’m over it. Moved onto better horizons.
There will soon be wedding images to follow up this blog. They are having smores at the wedding and she has been UBER excited about her photographs. She has basically maneuvered the day with photos in mind with oodles of time. I hope my only problem when blogging is having too many great images to choose from!!
Until Next time. xoxoxo
Jami and Jon got married on a BEAUTIFUL October day. Jami happens to be the winner of my Wedding Giveaway Contest from last year. I’ve conversed with her quite a bit before her big day and was finally happy to get to work with her. They got married at St. Luke’s dowtown Charleston.
How cute Jon was. Nervous and anxious. I tried keeping him distracted for the most part. I’m not too sure it was working.
This really says it all. He was very emotional and I find that admirable. The vulnerability Jon was so easy to display was very heartwarming.
Some aren’t too excited to see me around.
Here is Jami’s winning entry for the Contest. She included photographs of the little girl but decided to maintain privacy for the family involved. Congratulations Jami. You are not just a nurse but an angel in disguise.
