Darren & Stephanie – Married!!

So where do I start…first, we had some GORGEOUS weather for Darren and Stephanie’s vintage inspired wedding.  When I first talked to Stephanie and she was telling me about some of her idea’s and color scheme, it was instantly excited.  Anyone who knows me..or has been to my house for that matter, knows my love of all things vintage!!  Now, when brides tell me their about their plans, I get so excited to get to the venues to see how everything plays out.  Well, all I can say is Stephanie did not disappoint and for that matter, I think she could have a strong career in wedding planning if she ever decided to do it!! LOL!!  I can’t even tell you how many times I told her, “OMG, I LOVE that!!”  And for the record, almost everything you see was DIY by Stephanie…she’s way talented!!  We started the day early and took care of most of the pics before the ceremony!!  Darren and Stephanie had decided to do the “first look” and it was so sweet seeing their reactions.  You can totally tell that they are not only in love, but they are the best of friends.  After that, we headed out with the bridal party (who were all awesome and so fun!!).  Their ceremony was very sweet (and I LOVE when the officiant stands in the aisle so that the guests can see the bride and groom!!).  After some emotional vows, there was a bit of humor, when, simultaneously, they wiped the tears from their eyes.  Seriously, it was so cute and sweet!!!  Following there ceremony, we took some more pics before heading into the reception hall for some dinner and dancing.  Now, another awesome thing about their wedding was that the reception ended at 5pm, and lead outside to a pavilion in the park for the “after party”.  There were games, BBQ’ing, a live guitarist/singer playing some classic rock (and was banned from playing country music by Darren..LOL..GO DARREN!!).  Guys, all I have to say is, it was truly a pleasure meeting you and photographing your awesome wedding.  Next time I’m in Raleigh, NC, I am so hitting you up!!! <3
