I don’t shoot weddings very often. Not because I don’t like to, or because I don’t get asked, but in this season of life with 3 young children, it just isn’t doable. Besides the all day shooting affair, the editing process and blogging is just more time than I can commit on a regular basis. That said, sometimes I get asked to shoot a wedding and I just can’t say no. I love to shoot friends wedding, especially, because it’s so special to get to see the dating, engagement, marriage process play out and to get to be a part of it. Chris has been a friend of Austin’s and mine for the last 4 or 5 years. When he asked my hubby to be one of his groomsmen, I got extra excited because it’s not very often that I get to shoot a wedding and spend time with my hubs at the same time….score! Jill has become a more recent friend, but seeing the love grow between her and Chris has been such an awesome thing to witness.
They got married at the lovely Pembroke Hall in Edenton, NC. This 150+ year old home is dripping with southern charm and historical architecture. This was my first chance to visit Pembroke, but it definitely won’t be my last. I’d love to do a family session on it’s gorgeous grounds. The whole ceremony and reception were absolutely enchanting and the waterfront location with the cool river breeze made for a perfect day to tie the knot. The local flowers from Yeopim Flowers in Hertford, NC were breathtaking, and the catering from Montero’s in Eliz. City was just delish!
Chris and Jill, thank you so so much for letting me be a part of your special day. You guys are the real deal, and it brings us so much joy to get to see you both so happy and in love!!
