It there was ever a wedding that tested my ability as a wedding photographer, James & Tori’s wedding at Clay Hill Garden Events in Yale, Virginia was the wedding. Just minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start, a dangerous storm rolled through the area. Hail, lightening, and high winds delayed their wedding for more than 30 minutes. But as they say, “we adapted and overcame”. The staff at Clay Hill Gardens quickly grabbed umbrellas, and set up the wedding inside their rustic barn. Sometimes the best plans are “Plan B”.

As documentary wedding photographers, we documented the day as it unfolded. I think these images tell the story of their day perfectly. We included a few of of their DIY decorations and their unique cakes as well for wedding inspiration Take a look!

We wish these two all the love in the world as they begin their journey today. They truly weathered the storm on Day 1 of their marriage. The best is yet to come!

Emily and Colby were married at her home church, Rosemary Methodist Church in Roanoke Rapids, NC. Colby is an avid golfer so it was only appropriate that they spend a few minutes on the golf course at Chockoyotte Country Club in Weldon, NC following their ceremony. It was a pleasure being part of their wedding day. We wish them many happy years together.

We had the pleasure of being part of Shelley’s sister’s wedding a few years ago in Raleigh. So it was exciting to see old friends again and document Shelley & Chad’s wedding at their home church in Roanoke Rapids, NC. On our way to the reception the skies turned a bright orange so we pulled over and made a few photos of the two of them together just enjoying their wedding day. We wish them a lifetime of happiness. If you’re planning a wedding, Shelley & Chad had some cool DIY ideas with assistance from Exquisite Occasions in Roanoke Rapids, NC.
