Welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to be able to share with you my favorite images from weddings, engagements, maternity, and more! Grab a cup of coffee and get snuggly cuz this blog will give you all the feels!
In my opinion, there is nothing more lovely and wonderful than when you can be true to yourselves during the wedding planning process, be present on the day, and let your guard down a bit with those you love. When your wedding is an expression of your love, however that may look, your wedding is a massive success. Aine & Joe did this so wonderfully! From the moment we sat down, drank coffee, and introduced them to our furry family, I knew this was going to be a wonderfully unique wedding! We arrived that day eager to see all the ideas and dreams that Aine & Joe had put into action. From the beautiful rustic setting at the Spruce Pine Lodge in Bahama, NC to the tiniest details (like the Lord of the Rings themed font they used for all of the signs!) everything was perfectly Aine & Joe!
Now not every wedding day goes to plan, most of them don’t actually, and Aine & Joe shared a few hiccups of their own. But they took them in stride! We watched them wed on a chilly December afternoon, with their sweet & silly vows, Owl ring bearer, and surrounded by their family & friends. We cheered when they kissed & smiled when the stress of it all just melted away as they walked down the isle for the first time as husband and wife.
Aine & Joe’s reception didn’t follow your normal “formula.” In it’s place they chose to have an evening of geeky & wedding trivia! It was brilliant to watch guests all huddling together at their tables discussing the answers. We heard cheers of victory when their table was right or moans of frustration when someone had given a correct answer but the table had chosen another, I would even whisper in Daniel’s ear when I knew the answer and do my own little victory dance in the corner. Hah! It was such a fun night! They treated their guests to some of the best food truck grilled cheese I’ve ever had in my life (American Meltdown) and toasted as they cut their home made wedding cake. We ended the evening with a private first dance on the back porch, which I recommend to everyone! It was so beautiful! Then with one last hurrah and a prayer that no one caught on fire, we sent them off with a grand sparkler exit!
These are the weddings that just fill you up with such a sense of joy and energy! We just loved being there to capture it all for Aine & Joe and hope we get to go on many many geeky adventures together! Thank you for including us in your world! We love you guys!
