We loved being part of this beautiful rustic barn wedding. Normally, most of the weddings we photograph are located in NC, SC, & VA but we were beyond excited when Valerie & Drew told us they’re wedding was going to be in Florida. We were more than willing to travel to the sunshine state & capture this adorable couple on such a happy day. We would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
There were so many small details that added up to create such a memorable day. They even displayed their framed engagement photos from our adventure session at Black Balsam Knob! We love seeing our work on display at weddings. It makes us feel like we are part of the family!
This white backdrop with simple greenery is gorgeous! Sometimes simple decor is the most beautiful.
Valerie & her bridesmaids were such a sweet group. It was a room filled with lots of love & laughter.
This was definitely one of our favorite photos from the day. We loved the bond these ladies had together and this moment just displays it so well.
When we asked Valerie & Drew about any special moments they wanted to capture on their day, they said they would love to get some shots of Drew & his friends digging up the bottle of bourbon that was buried a month before the wedding for good luck! It was such a fun tradition & these guys definitely kept us laughing the whole time!
This little man was just the cutest. We could have taken hundreds of photos of him all day long…but we had to limit ourselves to just a few 😉
The way Valerie & Drew connect with each other is so natural & sweet. Their first look moment was priceless & capturing their love was so effortless.
The ceremony location was breathtaking. The way the trees surrounded the aisle and gently connected at the top was so beautiful & symbolic. It was truly magical, it almost felt like a dream.
It’s hard to describe the feelings & emotions of these moments but that’s why photos are so important. They speak for themselves.
We’re so glad we caught this stolen kiss at the end of the aisle as Mr. & Mrs.
We’re not exaggerating when we say this bridal party knew how to party! They kept us laughing all day long, from jokes to photobombs, the fun times kept on rolling.
Their family & friends were so kind and welcoming! We loved capturing all of their personalities as they interacted together at the reception.
They definitely know how to make an entrance 😉
The first dance was so beautiful & intimate. Such a sweet connection.
It was so clear that Valerie & Drew had so many people who loved them dearly. So many kind words were shared & so many memories were made.
Anybody else get teary eyed at every wedding during the dances with the parents? Ugh, can’t handle it…
This night was so much fun. Everyone danced the night away & celebrated the happy couple without holding back!
Thank you Valerie & Drew for allowing us to be part of this special time in your lives. You made us feel so encouraged and shared so much appreciation with us, which shows how big your hearts are. During a time when people should be celebrating you, you were kind enough to show us so much love & gratitude. We are thankful for you both & wish you so much happiness in the future. You two deserve the very best!
