It was such an honor to photograph Nicole and Jonathan's beautiful Autumn wedding. I'm quickly falling for weddings during the Fall. (Maybe because it one of the only weeks during wedding season that I'm not sweating to death? Maybe...) I'm usually one to be drawn to soft and subdued tones, but this stunning Autumn wedding with bold red has converted me to a color-lover. Nicole and Jonathan planned a gorgeous day full of elegance, with just the perfect touch of rustic. Nicole looked absolutely ravishing in her fit and flare gown, complemented by her chic up-do and fabulous crystal earrings. The her lush, wild bouquet had me swooning. It complemented the bridesmaids floor-length chiffon gowns so well. Each of the girls chose their own boots to pull in a Southern feel. The venue is surrounded by a working Muscadine Vineyard, rose gardens and jasmine covered arbors. It was the most glorious backdrop for their sweet ceremony. I was so moved by their commitment to each other as the sun dipped behind the trees. After the ceremony, the party moved to a huge tent, lit with string-lights and the flicker of the candles inside lanterns. There, they created the most stunning sweetheart tablescape. The dark wood table accented by vibrant florals was just stunning. It was such an honor to capture the start of their marriage on one of the most beautiful days this Autumn! Here's a few highlights from their day!
One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is when the bride and groom exit the ceremony. They always have such joy splashed all over their faces!
