Katie & Zach dreamed of a fairy tale wedding in historic Charleston, SC. Their wedding was everything they had wished for and more.

Katie chose a designer gown from Kleinfield in New York. Zach, who is a firefighter, wore his dress blues.

The venue: Boone Hall Planation outside Charleston, SC is of course where they filmed portions of both The Notebook and North & South.

From the first champagne pop early in the morning, to flowers dripping from the ceiling for their reception, to them leaving on a vintage fire truck, Katie & Zach’s

wedding was as epic as any Hollywood wedding. If you love wedding details, feast your eyes on this wedding!

It was such an honor being part of their wedding day. Thanks to all of the vendors we were able to work with including Boone Hall Planation for allowing us to capture every moment of their day.

We wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Olivia & Justin were married at Lake O’ the Woods Plantation in historic Warrenton, NC. It’s a beautiful planation home outside between Lake Gaston and Raleigh, NC
I first met Olivia when I made some photos for her senior year of high school.

One of the most special moments of the day, was their private first look. Justin was in awe as he saw her for the first time.

It was a pleasure being part of their wedding day. We wish them many happy years together!

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.
