Lauren and Tyler’s wedding at The Oaks at Salem is one for the record books. Every bride has that “Plan B”. Lauren and Tyler had to use every “B plan” they had in their arsenal. First the umbrellas came out, then the downpour of rain, but in the end a perfect rainbow. Even though their wedding ceremony had to be completed under the reception tent at the Oaks at Salem, the two continued their smiles throughout the day.

Sometimes the best plans are the alternate plans. All in all, they will look back on this day as a one filled with love.

As documentary wedding photographers, we pride ourselves in being photo storytellers. These images certainly tell the story of their wedding day like no other.

Taylor and Caleb’s wedding at Valley Community Church and reception at Chockoyotte County Club was one I’ve been waiting for since they announced their engagement. I had the privilege of being part of Taylor’s sister’s wedding a few years ago, I did Taylor’s senior portraits, and their engagement, so their wedding was a reunion of sorts.

If you’re looking for some ideas, they had some really unique details at their wedding.

1. Krispy Kreme Donut “Cake” – it’s their favorite date spot and the place where they got engaged.
2. Guitar signing – Caleb plays the guitar so as a keepsake, all of their friends signed a guitar
3. In place of the typical sparklers, they opted for a streamer exit instead.

It was an honor for les atkins Photography to be part of their wedding. We wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Alex and Alex’s wedding at The Oaks at Salem in Apex was full of love, laughter, and dancing. Their friends flew in from across the country to celebrate their big day. There were so many great moments…from Alex’s first look with her dad to the couple’s choreographed first dance. They danced the night away capped the night off with a glow stick exit, a twist to the typical sparkler exit.

We wish these two many happy years together. I’ll have to say one of my favorite images is the one of them under the tree. The light came in perfectly through the branches. The Oaks at Salem is an amazing venue offering both a modern and rustic feel. Always a pleasure being at their venue.

Martha and Zack’s were married in the same church her parents got married in. They then headed to The Farm at 95, which is a new venue, in Selma, NC.

We loved the way they made the day their own. Tradition was out the window! Zack actually brought in Martha’s wedding dress. They then decided to see each other before the wedding and spend some time alone.

Following the ceremony, greeted every guest who took the time to share their special day.

The night ended with lots of dancing, fun, and homemade doughnuts with family and friends. Did someone say doughnuts? Yes, I had to get a photo with those donuts!

Catherine & Dylan had a small family wedding in historic Appomattox Virginia. Prior to heading off to their reception, they made a stop for some “alone time” at the Historic Appomattox Battlefield Park. The park provided an amazing backdrop for some of our favorite sunset wedding images. These two smiled and laughed at each other all day. It was a joy seeing the love between them and documenting their wedding day. We wish them many happy years together!
