Gorgeous. Fun. Hilarious. Romantic. These are just some of the words I’d use to describe the incredible celebration I had the honor of photographing yesterday. From the moment I arrived, the day was full of every emotion under the sun. From watching the bride fight away her tears of joy after putting on her make up, looking at each guest’s expression when they saw the bride in her gown for the first time, and to fighting the urge to sing along with the entire wedding party as they ended their night with a group sing off…it was a wedding to remember.
The festivities were held at Cape Fear Botanical Gardens in Fayetteville, NC. An outdoor ceremony was planned followed by an indoor reception, but unfortunately the day was filled with scattered rain showers. And I must say, I was absolutely amazed at how the crew in charge of the set up quickly adjusted the banquet hall. I was bummed when I first heard we would be moving inside, but once I saw the room complete, I was blown away! This place was breathtaking! And an added bonus: air conditioning!!! After their buffet dinner, the couple and their guests rocked out while DJ Joey Warren kept the crowd jumping until it was “closing time”. The entire crowd had me laughing the whole time, and made it difficult for me to not put down the camera and join in the fun!
Congratulations to Lauren and Justin! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day!
Can anyone guess which wedding movie the bride is a fan of?
Time to party!!!
Lauren and Justin, I wish you two a lifetime of happiness, and I pray that your marriage is just like your wedding day…overflowing with laughter and love!
