Wilmington. Loved it.
Traveling to Wilmington, NC for Emily and Michael’s Memorial Day weekend wedding was Geoff and I’s first time visiting. We loved exploring downtown…which was quite busy given the weekend. We especially loved The Dixie Grill (we went there two days in a row for breakfast….THE best biscuit I EVER had) and Kilwin’s (we went there three nights in a row for chocolate and ice cream treats). 🙂
And the wedding? We had been looking forward to this wedding for some time. We were excited for this one for many reasons:
1) Emily and Michael are really good, nice people….super easy-going…super friendly. Plus, they look great together, have great chemistry and do super well in front of our cameras. 🙂
2) We would have the chance to work with planner Alyse Woodward
again….which is always a good time….and always makes for great detail shooting.
3) We knew Salt Harbor Designs was doing the flowers/decor. Seriously, this company AMAZES me with their work….I really wish they would just move their business to Charlotte. 🙂
And of course, we weren’t disappointed. I think my favorite aspect of the whole day, though, was all of the emotion. I don’t cry very often at weddings…but this one got me….many of times throughout the day. You’ll see why.
And this would be where I cried even more….Emily and her brother’s dance. Seriously, the whole room was choking up at this point.
Annnnndddd….some more tears here during Michael’s brother’s toast…they were killing me!
These are so great! I got to have one (ok a couple) of Flour and Flower’s macaroons recently, and they are to die for!!! The purple ones look fantastic with the rings!
a) Favorite ring shot ever.
b) I love and miss this entire family so much it hurts!
c) How adorable is this couple?
d) It is ALWAYS a good time when we get to work together… eating in the kitchen because it was the coldest room there, you getting trapped by the rental truck and being forced to help with breakdown… ya’ll are the best 🙂
You guys captured so much emotion at this wedding! Every photo has a feeling and I love that 🙂
Wow–those are some stellar photos. And that church is incredible. Beautiful details, beautiful flowers, and I love their couple shots. How is it that you seem to get better so consistently? Like… you weren’t even ever not awesome, so I don’t really get it but I’m very excited for you and to continue to oh and awe over what you capture and produce. Love you both.
Love the emotion in these images & the cookie bar is darling!
Beautiful! Love all the detail shots, especially the ring shot on those purple cookies. The light in the dancing shots….gorgeous!
Awesome. That is all.
