This was our first wedding at The Sutherland Estates in Wake Forest, NC. I’ll have to say, we’re excited to be back there again later this year. We had so much fun with CJ, Daniel, their families, and friends. It was like they had known us all of our lives. CJ walked down the aisle on a bed of yellow roses and the two ended the night with an extravagant sparkler exit. They carried their yellow rose spring theme to their reception under the Sutherland’s pavilion which included the bride’s father singing to his daughter.

No doubt this will be a night to remember for CJ, Daniel, and their families. We wish them many happy years together!

When we think about Brittany & Kyle’s wedding day, the word gorgeous comes to mind. The weather was perfect, and the sunset during their reception at Chockoyotte Country Club was unbelievable. These are some of our favorites from their country-themed wedding.

Emily and Jeremy’s love story is one of a kind. They met in Greenville while attending East Carolina University. Jeremy and his friends “stole” the beautiful wreath on Emily’s apartment door and placed it on their door. They then painted themselves as heroes for “finding” her missing wreath. Despite the practical joke, the two ended up dating. Their wedding was much the same…full of laughter, love, and plenty of great dancing. Emily and her friend’s also choreographed a special dance for Jeremy during the reception that had their guests cheering. Talk about fun! One of the highlights of the day was the sunset walk along the Washington, NC Waterfront. The waterfront is a popular spot in Little Washington, NC and made a great backdrop for some great images of the two of them.

We wish this Emily & Jeremy many fun-filled years together with much love and laugher!
