The LaCroix Wedding

No exaggeration…this wedding was perfection. Kat + Dan are like, super in love; the boho theme weaved throughout their wedding was executed flawlessly; the cake was amazing; and the dance floor was never empty!

There were three first looks: one with Kat's father, her brothers, and her soon-to-be husband. There were tears. There was a tiger mask (this wedding truly had everything).

They even showed their love for pups by naming each table (instead of numbers) after a close friend or family member's beloved doggos. The day, of course, couldn't have been possible without all the amazing vendors that lent a hand (listed below for y'all!)

Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. LaCroix!

The Hancock Wedding

Courtney and Nick's wedding was definitely one for the ages! Neuse Breeze provided the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous spring ceremony and reception. The entire day was filled with love, laughter, excitement…and partying till the sun came up.

It's impossible to name a favorite moment, so I'll name a few: when Nick "adopted" Courtney's cat and when they read their notes to each other; the traditional sword arch; when Marcus, the groom's son, had a special musical request; the sparkler exit and of course, all the emotion and overflowing love from their family and friends.

March 31, 2018 was nothing short of amazing, and I wish the brand-new Mr. and Mrs. Hancock a lifetime of happiness with their sweet little family! Congratulations, you two!

The Lucroy Wedding

Sunday marked not only the start of a brand-new year, but the start of a lifetime of love for Annie and David!

It was 20 degrees outside (it felt even colder with that river wind!), but these two stuck it out all night. Some highlights of the wedding were the amazing personal details, a sparkler exit to remember, and of course…Heckler, Annie and David's dog, starring as a groomsman!

This wedding was amazing, and the perfect way to end 2017. Happy New Year, everyone…cheers!

The McGillicuddy Wedding

Elizabeth and John OFFICIALLY became the McGillicuddys on September 2, 2017 and their wedding was absolute perfection! 

Before heading to their ceremony, the gals got ready at Wrightsville Beach. Elizabeth had a first look with her bridesmaids, and everyone started crying when she walked out in her gown for the first time! Next up was her first look with John before the ceremony, and (you guessed it), not another dry eye around. 

From the ceremony through the reception (how about that beautiful revenge cake smash?), this wedding was nonstop fun and so filled with love. It was a blast getting to be a part of one of the most special days of Elizabeth + John's lives, and I'm pumped to finally be sharing it with y'all! 

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. McGillicuddy!

Crystal + David

When I first met Crystal and David, they told me stories about how they met on a boat and got engaged on a boat, so of course, we had to incorporate a marina into their engagement session! We walked around this beautiful location, and although we were getting devoured by mosquitos, they could not keep smiles off their faces. They love living life together, and it shows in everything they do!

There's a reason I love weddings so much—meeting awesome couples, getting to know them and recording the most important moments of their lives is such a privilege. Every one of my couples is so different from the last, and these two are no exception.

They're truly a one-of-a-kind, as their union won't be limited to just the two of them. Crystal and David already have a beautiful family with two sweet girls, and it was amazing getting to capture them all together at the tail end of our session.

I'm so glad to finally be able to blog all these photos and share this little fam with the world—congrats to all of you! I can't wait for your wedding next year!

 

 

 

The Suhrland Wedding

One thing I love about summer is summer weddings on the beach, complete with sand between the toes, tiki torches and beautiful couples in love!

Noel and Anthony tied the knot on August 5, and the rain left the beach just in time for their ceremony. Tears were shed, rings were exchanged, and the officiant blew on a conch shell to officially announce this new couple to the world! 

It was such a lovely, intimate wedding with close family and friends, and I wish you the best as you live your lives together. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Suhrland! 

Mel + Jeremy | Elopement

When Melanie contacted me to shoot an elopement session for her new little family, I couldn't say yes fast enough! Mel, Jeremy and Trinity are such a sweet trio, and they made this entire session so easy and fun. 

Everything came together flawlessly (and how stinking darling is that "pop the champagne" sign?!) I had a blast hanging with y'all, I can't wait to see where life takes you three!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Arthur!

Lucie + Jon

I seriously LOVE exploring new places, especially with a couple as fun and adventurous as Lucie + Jon!! We hiked all over Fort Fisher; climbing into little dens, crawling over rocks, and getting slammed by waves. 

These two were absolutely unphased walking through the wilderness in their bare feet, jumping right into whatever idea popped into my head.

Spending the evening with this couple was a blast. From start to finish, Lucie + Jon were laughing and you could see their love so so clearly. Thanks so much for an awesome session, you two—and congrats on your engagement!!

Shelby + Hristo

After a super busy weekend in L.A., it was so refreshing to get back to the slower pace of coastal North Carolina. My first session back was with Shelby + Hristo and GOODNESS they blew me away with their love and beauty!

Beach sessions are some of my favorites, and this was no exception. We kicked it off in some greenery, where me and Shelby bonded over our Harry Potter tattoos (those three little stars have so much meaning!) and then hit the beach to run around in some waves!

I don't think I've ever had a couple that laughed quite as much as these two…especially when they got down and dirty in the water! This couple was up for anything I threw their way, whether it was trekking through the sound or lying down in the surf.

It was a blast to hang out with y'all, Shelby + Hristo, and I can't wait for your April wedding!! I know it'll be every bit as beautiful as you guys.  

Marta + Adam

From the revolutionary-era mansions to the Cape Fear boardwalks, downtown Wilmington has my heart. Exploring this beautiful place is always better when I get to hang with even more beautiful couples like Marta and Adam!

These two came all the way from Charlotte for our engagement session, and they were so fun! They laughed, joked, and absolutely could not take their eyes (and hands 😉) off each other the entire time. Thanks so much for hanging out with me, y'all—I can't wait to see your incredible wedding!
