To say I’ve been looking forward to Jessica and Ryan’s wedding for years, wouldn’t be exaggerating, it would be totally true. I mean these guys booked me way back in 2014 just after Jessica was a bridesmaid in Haley and Derek’s beautiful wedding at the Cliffs. After shooting their beautiful engagement session, and Jessica’s bridals, I was primed an ready for their incredible wedding up at Hawkesdene in Andrews, NC.
We started off on a cool fall morning as everyone got ready in the garden cottage. Hawkesdene has an incredible array of cabins and spaces to rent, so many of their guests were staying on the property. With some impeccable details, Jessica looked absolutely stunning. Ryan didn’t look too bad himself as we spent some time capturing everyone getting ready before the ceremony. After the short ceremony we were wisked away up to the top of the mountains for some beautiful photo backdrops. Afterwards everyone headed into an absolutely stunning reception space with plenty of candles and beautiful details. Then the dancing started, and didn’t stop, ever. Ok, maybe just in time for their sparkler exit!
Thanks again guys!! I had a blast!
