The air was thick with anticipation as the crowd awaited Brook’s arrival. She moved with grace as she traversed the stair case that seemed to go on for miles. Finally she made it to the bottom and was greeted by her father, whom up until that point had been Brook’s prince. He gently helped her on with her crystal laden heels and walked her slowly down the isle to meet her new prince and husband to be, Drew. Tears of joy couldn’t be held back as this event, years in the making, finally came to be. A true happily ever after if there ever was one!
What a absolute joy to have been present at such a gorgeous event! Daniel and I soaked up every smile, hug, and tear. Tina of Love & Honey transformed the Castle McCulloch into a true fairy tale space complete with candelabras! They danced the night away to the Jason Adamo Band who shook the whole castle to it’s core with their addictive music! Daniel and obsessed over how good they were!
Then came the time for Brook & Drew to run away for a short time with the two of us! Woohoo! They braved the crisp autumn evening for all of their wedding portraits. It’s not often that we have couples who want just night photographs, but somehow it fit the whole romantic theme of their day. Thank you Brook & Drew for allowing us to capture your epic fairy tale! We loved every moment!
Picture this, a beautiful autumn day where the surrounding tree’s are shades of orange and gold. The wind blows gently as you make your way down a winding path, acorns fall making a soft rustle as you walk. Slowly, but surely the path widens into a stone walk way and right before you is a beautiful stone castle complete with drawbridge! Sounds like I just described the beginning of a movie or a scene out of a book right? Guess what, that was my introduction to the Castle McCulloch near High Point, NC when I went there for Brook’s bridal portrait session! From the moment I laid my eyes on this place, I knew I was in for a treat!
Brook met me there and we had an amazing morning of creating some gorgeous portraits, but also some of my favorite “artsy” pieces. There were so many beautiful pockets of light and unique spaces in and out of the Castle. It makes it even more enjoyable when your bride is pretty much up for anything that I asked, even if she did get a bit dizzy from all of the spins I made her do! But just look at the pictures, totally worth it!
If you’re on the fence about whether to do a bridal session or you’re afraid of getting your dress dirty, maybe this session will change your mind and you’ll get to create some amazing artwork to hang on your walls!
Next week I’ll share Brook & Drew’s EPIC wedding at the Castle McCulloch! Stay tuned!
