There’s not much that fixes our Monday up prettier than a sweet to-be-wed love sesh in North Carolina. And this gorgeous autumn engagement session in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, has so many wonderful, just lovely things going for it. First, it’s photographed by one of our favorite NC photographers, Caroline Lima Photography. Second, the bride-to-be looks stunning and so abundantly joyful in these photographs, and so does her groom. Her outfits are precious, we’re loving her boots, and we’re just so thankful for engagement sessions that don’t seem “posed.” Congratulations, Katie and Daniel!
We have one word for this Smithfield Plantation wedding from Katie Estes Photography: adore. From their adorable pup to the bride’s lace wedding gown and the colorful leaves, this southern wedding is just beautiful. Autumn leaves adorned their wedding cake, the bridesmaids wore olive green, and everything is just lovely.
From Katie Estes Photography: “Christine and Michael’s wedding was full of charm! The bride got ready at her parents’ house, which was nestled up in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. After the groom arrived and we had taken several sweet photographs on the family land, the wedding party moved to the Smithfield Plantation Pavilion for the ceremony. The fall leaves were in full color, providing a beautiful backdrop. The reception, held at VCOM II at Virginia Tech, was also full of southern charm with corncake placeholders, pulled pork, and sweet tea. Did I mention that the bride was super crafty? She made her own veil, invitations, bouquets for the wedding party, AND the homemade limoncello favors!” Congratulations, Christine and Michael!
From Elise Beall Photography: “Lindsay and Christian had an absolutely gorgeous fall-themed, outdoor wedding reception! Their ceremony was at the Catholic Chapel on the Marine Base of Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina. The reception was at the Officer’s Club on the water. The bride’s father is a retired General, who at one time was Commanding General for all the Marine bases in the Southeast! The bride chose incredible details to pull her fall theme together, had a live local band, comfortable seating throughout the tented areas, incredible lighting, beautiful floral arrangements, and more little extra details than you can imagine!”
From Twila, the photographer: Justin and Becky met and fell in love as undergraduate students at Vanderbilt University. One of their first dates was to a Vanderbilt home football game, and six years later Justin surprised Becky by proposing on the 50 yard line of the stadium! Becky and Justin feel blessed everyday to have such loving families and friends, but most of all to have each other. Currently Justin is finishing his final year at The Vanderbilt School of Medicine, and Becky is working in finance. They can’t wait to start their shared life together following their wedding this Summer.
First on our agenda for Thursday is this rustic Autumn e-session from Carmaleta Ann Photography & Design. I fell in love with this e-session originally because the groom, Quintrel, looks so happy to be there with his bride. The icing on the cake: swirling Autumn leaves, knee high boots, and sweet kisses.
