Elizabeth & David | Wilmington, NC Wedding Photos at 128 South

D&L-27-13.jpg

Liz and Dave’s wedding day will always go down as one of my favorites! From beginning to end, their day was fun and relaxed. Every detail was beautifully chosen by Liz and I love all of the thought and care she put into making her special day extra special! Her and Dave make such a great couple. They were so welcoming and kind to me and I had the best time taking their pictures! I’m so excited for them and their life together!!!

One of Liz’s favorite things she invested in for her wedding day was her dress! I love when I find out details like that because it always makes my job more special. Just knowing how much she loved her dress made me want to give her a variety of gorgeous pictures of it!! Preserving the things that mean the most to my brides means the most to me!

A quick little side note! If you’re getting married at Bakery 105 or 128 South and looking for a place to stay overnight and/or get ready, a fantastic place is Stemmerman’s Inn! It’s right next to 128 South, so it’s very convenient to both venues! All of these details and getting ready portraits were taken there. The light was beautiful and it was such a cute place!! The rooms have a living space, kitchenette, and a loft with a bed. It was ADORABLE! I wasn’t told to say that, I just loved it that much :)

It can feel a *little* awkward to dip kiss in the middle of a street, BUT I’m thankful Liz and Dave embraced it and trusted me because we all loved the outcome!!! It’s always worth it!

A live band is always SO fun!! Spare Change Music was wonderful! Liz and Dave’s reception was one of the most fun ones I’ve ever been to! The atmosphere, music, and just how kind and fun their family and friends were made it a special evening!

Dana & Kyle | Blockade Runner Wedding in Wrightsville Beach

D&K_14-4.jpg

A beachfront wedding was only fitting for Dana who spent many summers at Wrightsville Beach! The Blockade Runner did not disappoint with its gorgeous views! It was the perfect place for Kyle and Dana to become husband and wife! I’m excited to share their beautiful photos. Their day was emotional, full of tears and laughter! It’s an honor to be part of such special moments in people’s lives!

Happy scrolling! :)

Dana had beautiful details with such special heirlooms! I always love photographing the little things that mean so much to my couples.

I just love this photo of Dana’s dress! The frame was perfect; Dana and Kyle spent a lot of time on her family’s boat so the backdrop just fits! Plus I love the pop of blue!!

Kateleigh & Zack | Downtown Wilmington Engagement Photos

Z&K-e-3.jpg

Kateleigh and I met a few years ago while she was living in Wilmington. I was disappointed when she moved away shortly after meeting! But I still remember us chatting over coffee about Zack. I’ve hoped that if they got married I’d have the opportunity to photograph their wedding. When Kateleigh reached out to me a few months ago inquiring about wedding photography, I was thrilled!! These two are SO sweet and cute together. I can’t wait for August 💕

We had a wonderful time on their engagement session! It was so good to see Kateleigh again. We started out at her grandparent’s lake house and it was GORGEOUS! I just love the Spanish moss!!! Then we went to Downtown Wilmington for some more pretty photos! I’m excited to share these!

  1. Kateleigh has the cutest little dog, Margie!! You know I love when my couples bring their dogs to sessions! Just look at that sweet little face!

  2. Kateleigh is a fantastic jewelry maker!! She created the bracelet in the picture above. She engraved the heart, a drawing from their first Valentine’s card. SO SWEET!!! She creates signs too and made the one Margie is wearing! Check out her Etsy shop here.

I’ve wanted to take a picture like this on these beautiful steps of Downtown Wilmington’s courthouse for a long time! Usually, the sun is shining too brightly for it to be the perfect spot, but the clouds worked in our favor!
