Oh Happppy Day!!
Melanie and Daniel have to be one of the SWEETEST couples that I’ve had the honor of photographing! These two are so adorable together and I’m so happy and honored to have been apart of their day. Their wedding was filled with love, family and God. All of which are so incredibly important to them. They picked the sweetest little southern venue, The Sutherland, in Wake Forest, North Carolina for their day. With an outdoor ceremony in front of the venue and all the reception fun under the gorgeous pavilion around back of the estate.
I mean, are they not the cutest?! And can you tell it was over 100 degrees?! Shew, we sure could, but man was it worth it!!
The Sutherland Is a charming southern venue. I have photographed multiple weddings here. It’s such a sweet, romantic venue that kind of feels like home. Ashlee from the Sutherland, is the Special Events Director and she is AH-mazing. Literally. So sweet, professional, down to earth and oh-so-helpful. Seriously, to me, the staff and vendors are a big part of any wedding day and how helpful + kind hearted they are can influence the mood of your wedding day, tremendously.
If you can even imagine, Melanie’s inner beauty is just as beautiful as her outer beauty. Pearls and Lace, so dreamy! I literally get so happy when a beautiful wedding day comes together. I LOVE what I do. We were walking along the estate while doing Melanie’s bridals chatting and hanging out and I literally squealed so loud when I saw this Wisteria hanging. Y’all, this girl was excited. Like, maybe too excited.
Shooting through nature is literally love for me. If I can incorporate nature, I’m going to. At any given time at a wedding you will see me shooting through all kinds of random, possibly weird things. It’s SO much fun and I get excited about creating something new and wonderful.
Melanie seeing her little brother for the first time all dressed up. This seriously makes my heart smile. <3 <3
Melanie and Daniel came together to say a prayer and exchange love notes to each other, just before walking down the aisle.
Unfortunately, just a couple weeks prior to their wedding day, Daniel’s mother passed away from breast cancer. Daniel and Melanie really wanted to make sure his mother was included in their day as much as possible.
