Kelly and Clint had such a genuinely perfect wedding day.  From their love, their friends and family, beautiful weather, amazing venue, gorgeous details…it was just a dream to be a part of.  Their engagement photo session was the first time I had been to southern pines venue, and it is such a dream as a photographer to be there.  The light flows through the trees so beautifully no matter what time of day.  So between that, the lake, and all the attention they’ve taken to the ceremony and reception setups, it is one of the prettiest rustic venues in our area.

We started out the day by meeting the girls to be getting ready.  Hanging out with girls is always one of my favorite parts of a wedding day.  They are just always so fun and joyful as they are getting ready together and walking through the day with their best friend.  Kelly’s friends were so sweet and gorgeous as you can see.  Kelly was absolutely STUNNING.  I was over the moon when I walked in to see her wedding dress and shoes.  Seriously how different and beautiful!  Those combined with her hair color and eyes, I was just in heaven photographing her.

Clint is SUCH a character.  He will literally have you laughing the entire time you’re with him.  Needless to say, the day was FUN and full of laughs.  The ceremony was really beautiful, so touching.  Kelly teared up as she walked down the aisle to meet Clint.  It’s not often Clint is serious, but at that moment he did have a huge smile on his face as he got to watch her come towards her.  No goofing off, no joking, just a huge smile.  Their ceremony setup was lovely with the wooden benches to the huge oak tree and lake as a beautiful backdrop.

After their I do’s, we went directly into their reception which was full of dancing, laughter, and AMAZING food and cake!  I was stoked that they were willing to run into the woods really quickly for some night photos.  Those are always so fun to do!

Kelly and Clint, thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me share such a special time in your lives.  It was such an honor to walk through your wedding day with you.  You two share such a sweet love and laughter for life.  I’m super excited to watch your next chapters unfold.  xoxox
