Married at The Bradford : Jonathan & Erica

When my husband and I first moved to North Carolina, Jon and Erica were one of the first couples we connected with. Of course at the time, they were only dating. We have had the pleasure of getting to know them, seeing them through dating, plotting and helping with the proposal, capturing the proposal, all the way to their wedding day! And if you notice the tan attractive man who married them under the altar, that's my husband! Victor and I played two special parts for their wedding. He was the officiant and I was the photographer! What a team!

Jon and Erica's wedding took place at the Bradford in New Hill, North Carolina. It is easily becoming my new favorite wedding venue. It is European inspired with a breathtaking terrace out back. Their wedding was just in time for the brand new bridal suite upstairs. Blush colored walls, perfect natural lighting, and that romantic sofa! Couldn't help but to take extra bridal portraits and detail shots. Erica looked so beautiful!

I was able to witness the sweetest First Look. As Erica stepped out of the house and walked towards her soon to be husband, Jon couldn't help but to tear up. I'm not going to lie...it was a little hard to do my job and keep it together as well! The day continued on, they said "I do", the cake was cut, a bouquet was caught, the garter was thrown and we danced the night away! We love you guys so much! Thank you for letting us be a part of your day. Hope you two are having an amazing time in Jamaica!

Country Club Wedding : Keir & Nadia

Nadia and Keir's wedding took place at MacGregor Downs Country Club in Cary, North Carolina. The whole day was nothing short of amazing. Nadia originally contacted me when she was still living in Trinidad and Tobago. We finally got a chance to meet at their engagement session in April. I knew good things were in store for the wedding day by the way Nadia and Keir interacted with each other. They were silly, flirtatious and so in love! Nadia's son, Ronalon joined us for the engagement session. And can I say what a character he is! He is so sweet and funny! The relationship he has with his Mom is so admirable.

Originally, their wedding day had rain in the forecast, but not one drop fell from the sky. The clouds worked in our favor and we were able to catch the most gorgeous sunset lighting for bride and groom portraits later in the night! We started the day with the sweetest First Look. From then on, Nadia and Keir were so easy to work with. You can tell they were so excited to get married and start life together as Husband and Wife. Nadia's smile is just infectious, that when I saw them smiling at each other, I couldn't help but to smile with them. They are the type of couple that you just want to be around!

The night went on and the reception was filled with beautiful floral arrangements, impeccable details, laughter, love and intimate speeches. I hear a lot of toasts during weddings, so it takes a lot for me to tear up. But that was until I heard Ronalon's speech as the Best Man. He went on saying that typically the Best Man gives a speech of the Groom and how he has known him for years. This case was different. He didn't know Keir his entire life, but the bond they have is so special. He continued on by saying, "Although I am the Best Man, YOU are the Best Man I've ever known!" I don't think there was a dry eye in that room. Being the charmer that he is, he then went on saying, "hopefully this speech and kind words will get me out of chores in the future!" Hahaha!

Keir and Nadia, your day was perfect. Your families were so kind and welcoming. I wish you both nothing but a lifetime of love and happiness. It was an honor to document your special day!

Bellamy-Ferriday House Wedding : Joe & Emily

This wedding was so special to me. I was honored when my cousin asked if I can be their wedding photographer. Not only did I get to be a wedding guest, but I also got a front row seat for every special moment that happened through out the day. Their wedding took place at St. Annes Church in Waterbury, CT with the reception to follow at the Bellamy-Ferriday House in Bethlehem. I felt like I was in the movie, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" since it was Italian and Greek families coming together. The night was filled with a lot of laughter, good times, and greek dancing! Emily and Joe's Garden Party Wedding was absolutely gorgeous and I'm so glad I was able to be apart of it!
