Mia and Alex are smart. Not only are they both super talented engineers, they are also smart about how to design an incredible wedding. Although they live about five hours away in New Bern, NC, they always wanted to have a wedding near the mountains. After touring dozens of wedding venues they came to the same conclusion my wife and I did, they loved the unique garden setting that Twigs Tempietto has to offer, and decided to hold their wedding there.

With the wedding being a destination for most of their guests, this made sure that just the real close family members and friends were in attendance. We started off with everyone getting ready at the beautifully remodeled Embassy Suites on Verdae. After their intimate first look and some photos around the hotel grounds and we headed over to Twigs Tempietto for their reception. With some small and beautiful touches, the tempietto looked beautiful as everyone danced the night away. Check it out:

Fall Old Cigar Warehouse Wedding | Reagan + Trey

When I first sat down with Reagan and Trey to talk about their wedding I had a good feeling about them, not just because they were likely going to hire me to shoot the wedding, but because they were the kind of people I could see developing a friendship with. And over the coming months, that is exactly what happened. Between shooting their engagement session at City Scape Winery, several dinners and parties later, it was just one of those awesome surprises.

I knew it was going to be incredible wedding. After all, we had spent the months before talking all about it, the ups and the downs, the fun and the stressful, the hilarious and the sad parts. Even though the week leading up the wedding wasn’t a particularly good one for Reagan and Trey, they put those things aside and had “without a doubt the single best day & night of my life” – as Reagan wrote on her Facebook page shortly after.

With the backdrop of Hurricane Matthew’s leftovers, the Old Cigar Warehouse looked particularly dramatic. Inside, Reagan picked out some incredible decor, complete with her own beautifully detailed dress from Anthropologie. Emotions ran high as Reagan saw her dad, and then Trey for the first time. A short, but beautiful ceremony in front of a lighted backdrop lead us to some incredible food and dancing. A truly incredible time for two incredible people!

After 10 years, there still are still some wedding venues I haven’t shot at here in Greenville, but not many. Emily and Ryan just helped me scratch one off that list, and one that I had wanted to shoot at for awhile, Viewpoint at Buckhorn Creek. With beautiful mountain views and immaculate landscape Viewpoint at Buckhorn Creek was the perfect backdrop for for Emily and Ryan’s intimate wedding. With plenty of excitement, great food, and perfect fall weather it couldn’t have been a better day. Check it out:

Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Maryland Wedding | Katie + Kyle

28 Sep 2016

I have to say that I’ve been looking forward to Katie and Kyle’s wedding since the second they got engaged. Literally. I was that creepy photographer in the bushes that captured that very second Kyle got on his knee and proposed to Katie underneath the Liberty Bridge in Falls Park in downtown Greenville. Shortly after they asked if I would shoot their wedding at Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in Maryland. Naturally, it didn’t say long for me to say… YES!

Fast forward a year and a half when Debra and I started off the day in their parent’s beautiful home as Katie and her energetic bridesmaids celebrated and got ready for the day’s festivities. I knew it was going to be an exciting day as soon as her closest friends popped the third bottle of champagne popped along with a barrage of confetti. After a quick stop over to check up on the guys, we headed over to the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club where Katie put on her dress. It was all tears of joy after that as Katie walked out onto the rooftop deck overlooking the Chesapeake Bay toward a very emotional Kyle. An absolutely stunning sunset permeated their reception space as they made their grand entrance into their first dance. The evening then unfolded into a mix of great food, touching speeches, and hilarious dancing until the sparklers were lit to light up their exit into the moonlit night.
