Kevin and Julie : Wedding

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Kevin and Julie’s end-of-fall November 5th wedding was one where I had my eye on the weather forecast everyday for about two weeks leading up to the big day. The wedding was held at one of my favorite venues in the Triangle, The Pavilions at The Angus Barn, and its beautiful grounds beg for as many outdoor photos as possible. We lucked out and had the most perfect weather anyone could have asked for. Kevin and Julie chose a sunset, lakeside ceremony. I doubt there were few places more serene that day as under the expertly decorated arch in front of family and friends all gathered to celebrate the union of this beautiful couple. The reception was a blast, thanks to the ever brilliant aural musings of Hipshack and the heavenly catering and  stop-at-nothing-to-please staff of Angus Barn. The night was topped off with sparklers and an exit in a masterfully restored Chevy Bel Air.

A few other notes of interest… Julie designed and made the bridesmaids’ earrings and designed the programs which were then printed on wood veneer. Her earrings and necklace were borrowed from her mom and were a gift from her dad to her mom over 25 years ago. Her pearl bracelet was restrung from one that her grandparents gave her when she was younger, and she added the closure from a necklace her dad gave her. The rings tied in the bouquet are Julie’s parents’. The rhinestone hairpiece and Kevin’s cufflinks are both vintage, circa 1930’s and 1920’s respectively.

Thanks, Kevin and Julie, for having me as a part of your big day!

Hal and Katie : Wedding

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Hal and Katie literally tied-the-knot on a beautiful, foggy day at Crest Mountain just outside of Asheville, NC. They opted for a “First Look,” which I always love doing. This one was especially sweet being on the third-floor balcony of the condo where Katie got ready. The balcony overlooks Downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains in the distance. “First Looks” are a great way to relieve a little of the stress before you see each other down the aisle, and it means you can get many of your formal photos taken care of before the wedding! The rain held off just long enough to be able to have the ceremony in the planned, outdoor setting, and although the fog clouded the mountain views in the distance, it created a soft, dreamy, romantic feel for the nuptials. Katie looked stunning in her Ieie gown, and Hal was rather dapper with his custom-monogrammed tie. The festivities continued inside the pavilion, and the rest of the reception was a blast of a party! The night was wrapped up with a sparkler exit and a night on the town. I so enjoyed every minute of this day, and I’m really happy I was able to be a part of it. And now, on to the photos!

For anyone who might be curious/interested… This was all shot with a Mamiya 645AF, Canon 1V, and Pentax K1000 on Fuji Pro 400h, Kodak Portra 400, Kodak TMax 400, Kodak Tri-X 400, and Ilford Delta 3200, and developed and scanned by the wonderfully talented people at Richard Photo Lab.

Huge “Thanks” to John Robinson for making the trip with us down to Asheville to second-shoot! I loved having you along, and look forward to being able to do it again sometime.
