Rachel & Christian | 128 South, Wilmington NC Wedding Photos

R&C header.jpg

I'm SO excited to share Rachel and Christian's wedding pictures!! You might remember them from their Downtown Wilmington engagement session in September (I still love those pictures!!). Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful!! Rachel's details were a dream to photograph and she looked stunning in her dress and veil! She went all the way to New York City's Kleinfeld store for it! It looked like it was made just for her. Every decision Rachel and Christian turned out amazing. It was such a fun wedding! Find their list of fantastic vendors at the end of the post. 

Rachel, Christian, and their son Ryland are so sweet. I'm so excited for them and this new chapter in their lives!

Wrightsville Manor Wedding | Samantha & Jevaunte

S&J-5-235.jpg

Samantha & Jevaunte are a special couple with a unique and sweet (and a little funny!) love story. They met a few years ago, and as Jevaunte said in his vows, he loved her from the start. Samantha, however, kept him in the friend zone for a couple years!! After being such a good friend to her and always being there, she finally decided to say yes and they started dating. A little while later, on an impromptu trip to Washington DC, he surprised her by getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him!

Their story makes me smile, and so do these pictures from their gorgeous wedding day!! I remember when Samantha being a little nervous about planning a wedding in only 5 months, but she did a wonderful job! Her details were stunning and her and her girls were gorgeous!!

Samuel & Brooke | Brooklyn Arts Center

WilmingtonPhotographer.jpg

I am SO excited to share Sam and Brooke's wedding today! I looked forward to their special day from the day we first met for coffee!! To give a little introduction, they are high school sweethearts. Brooke told me that Sam was easy to fall in love with, and I'm sure Sam would say the exact same about Brooke! If you haven't heard their proposal story, check out my Instagram post here! It's precious! Also, you have to see their beautiful Fort Fisher engagement session here! They are such a fun and caring couple, full of love for each other, Christ, and others; it was evident throughout their entire wedding day!

There were so many things I loved about Sam and Brooke's wedding, but I'll just name a few! 

1. Brooke's wedding hair!! It was unique and so GORGEOUS!! 

2. Their timeline was perfect! So many wedding days can feel rushed or the bride and groom don't have much time to spend together, but Sam and Brooke had about half an hour before the ceremony and a good bit of time afterwards just to relax and enjoy each others company! They chose to do a first look which allowed them to do this and I think they would agree it was one of the best decisions!! Also, their first look is PRECIOUS! You'll love it!

3. Instead of cake they chose to serve donuts. Coming from a girl who loves donuts, I thought it was such a fun idea!! 

Now on to the pictures!! Leave Sam and Brooke some love in the comments!
