Jenna & Brent | Wedding Photos at Ironclad Brewery in Downtown Wilmington

J&B-461.jpg

This has been such a fun wedding to edit and prepare! Jenna and Brent's wedding day was a blast. I met Jenna and her girls at the Marriott Downtown and took some beautiful detail shots! Designs by Dillon kindly set aside a few spare blooms for me and they just added to all the pretty of Jenna's details! These picture are some of my favorites to take on wedding days!! They showcase the bride's personality so well and can carry a lot of meaning. Brent sweetly gave Jenna her necklace just a few days before the wedding. 

Jenna and Brent had the prettiest June day. We've had a lot of summer storms lately, but their day was beautiful... as was their bridal party, venue, florals, and basically everything, haha! So much eye candy. I think one reason I love shooting weddings is because I love looking at pretty things and Jenna's planning didn't disappoint!

I love how Ironclad Brewery was transformed with the twinkling lights!! They weren't on when I first arrived, but when I saw them later it looked amazing!! The pictures can't even do it justice.

After dinner, we snuck away for sunset portraits. The glow was some of the prettiest I've gotten to photograph in a while! It was a beautiful evening. Of course, with these two, there's no way these pictures could've been anything but gorgeous!!

Jenna and Brent have a precious love for each other. I still remember how giggly and happy she was at their engagement session and that carried right into their wedding day!

I'm writing this a few days before Brent and Jenna's wedding! I adore these pictures and am excited to share them after the wedding!! The hardest thing about bridal sessions is having to wait to share pictures!! But here they are! The original date we planned for this session ended up downpouring. We waited a while for a break in the clouds, but decided another day would be best. Sure enough, we had gorgeous weather for her back-up date!! The sunlight was so pretty. I'm so happy with how these turned out! Enjoy!

Follow me on Facebook or Instagram below to stay on the lookout for their WEDDING pictures!!

Mariah & Philip | Neuse Breeze, Havelock, NC Wedding Photos

I'm excited to share Mariah and Philip's wedding pictures!! Mariah and I met through church probably a couple of years ago. I still remember the first time I heard her talk about Philip and how perfect they are for each other. Since meeting him, it's been easy to see how they're a perfect match! Philip's tender love for Mariah and her admiration for him is precious. They are one of the most genuinely sweet and caring couples I've had the pleasure of working with! 

Their wedding day was a DREAM! I've been excited about shooting at Neuse Breeze since Mariah told me about it. She always had amazing things to say about the venue and staff and they truly came through and exceeded all expectations on the wedding day! Every detail was gorgeous. Mariah did a fantastic job planning and the Neuse Breeze team pulled it all together beautifully! It's always fun to see my couple's visions come to life on their special day!

I still remember Philip commenting on how important it was to him that everyone was having fun. Neuse Breeze was definitely the perfect place for that! So many fun spots from the hammock, dance floor, swing, and yard to throw the football! I could tell everyone was thoroughly enjoying themselves. It was a fun celebration!! Just wait until you see the dancing pictures :)

Thankfully we were able to get these pictures of Mariah and Philip before the storm rolled in! We actually were able to see the rain on the water in the distance, but we kept a close eye on it and it stayed at bay and we were able to capture these!
