[Pinehurst, NC Wedding]

Our second location on the road map to weddings was Pinehurst, NC.

I’m based in Wilmington and that has pretty much meant I am a destination wedding photographer.  We are located in a very small town, and there is a lot of photographers in the area. So, I actually don’t really have work in Wilmington. I’ve been lucky enough to travel out of the area, which is my absolutely favorite thing about my work!

We left Wilmington Friday morning. It was our first time being in this area, and we weren’t disappointed at all! We were very excited about this Pinehurst,NC wedding!

If you haven’t been, Pinehurst is a golf town. I think it’s one of America’s holy grail of golf. It’s a cute quiet, clean area. The town itself holds lots of golf history and its mimicked to look like an old English Village. There is cobble stone on the roads and the streets are lined with Tudor styled homes. It’s gorgeous! Andrew is a golfing guy, and a golfing manager in Virginia beach and I think that was the perfect location for his interest and providing a beautiful landscape for Ashley.

Ashley had opted for me to shoot her details the day before. And let me tell you how awesome is this! Not only do I get to get a sneak peek of her goodies, and I get to open up some time on the day of, so it’s always a plus.

Ashley’s dress was lined with crystals, and really delicate straps. She wore her something blue around her finger and had those most cute sandals that were tucked under neath her dress.

Beautiful caramel shoes paired with a blue paisley tie. And you can’t forget the cutest accessory and detail, their handwritten vows. So sweet!

 

The day started off with Ashley getting ready for the big day with her bestest girlfriends. Her makeup, hair and getting into her dress was top secret! I love how she did multiple first looks. The first one was her girls, the second with her dad, and finally with Andrew. The girls gathered in the living area of the room while they waited for Ashley to come out.  They took pics and Ashley’s dad finished getting dressed here too. He was leaving to go to our first look location for him and Ashley. The bride was just about ready to see her bridesmaids.

Ashley’s second look was with the first man in her life, her dad.  Their relationship is so sweet to see. I love seeing these moments play out. You never know who will be the first to cry. And, I must say Dad held out as long as he could. Ashley twirled for her dad and you could tell her dad only still saw the little girl he had fallen in love with. There is just something undeniably contagious and beautiful about this kinda of love.

After her first look was done, we drove to the Arboretum of Pinehurst. Andrew was patiently waiting for his girl to do their first look.  It was about 100degrees out and very humid, and this guy still looked as sharp as could be. Andrew looked nothing but handsome in his pale blue grey suit.

Andrew and Ashley are truly polar opposites. She’s vivacious, spunky, giggly, and her personality if you could turn into candy would be like gummi bears, and cotton candy. Andrew on the other hand, has the most peaceful and calming demeanor.  He’s like that gentle breeze you receive on your cheek on summer nights. He’s smart, attentive, and even though he is quiet he’s very protective with Ashley. They are the perfect match to one another’s personalities.

As we were taking the couple portraits we also notice the rolling clouds coming in. The day called for thunderstorms, and we were definitely pushing the envelope.

Ashley and Andrew’s ceremony was soon approaching and all was left was to get it going! Ashley walked down the aisle with her dad. The Arborteum was the perfect backdrop to their ceremony. Gorgeous flowers were accenting the center alter and aisle.

And she did it epicly…

And just like that, umbrellas were the main attraction as the storm rolled through the area. It was like a hurricane was coming through. Something I will never forget, and a story that will always be told for these two. Its kinda neat that they have this story to tell their kids, and possibly the story will continue throughout generations.

After the guest were gone, we sneaked our couple a way, and finished off our time at the Arboretum with some more photos of our couple. I took some more photos of Ashley alone, how could you not, right? She was was gorgeous!!! Her bouquet, and the dress on her, and her beautiful smile. Absolute perfection!

The reception was at the Fair Barn. I have never been to a barn venue that was decorated so beautiful. Drapes lined the walls, flowers were everywhere and we even had a chandailler that was above our dance floor. The guest were treated to a southern dinner paired with sweet tea of course!

One really cool detail, that I loved was the coffee bar.  They had Duck Donuts accented their wedding cake. There was a variety of flavors ranging from maple bacon to sprinkles.  We definitely drooled over this selection while we were photographing it. Don’t they look tasty!!

The couple entered into their first dance, had some wonderful speeches from Ashley’s dad, her sister, and Andrews best friend.. We had a cake fight, some dancing and finally the night was finished with a bubble send off from their closest family and friends.

When photographing a wedding the amount of detail that is given to a brides attire is extremely important. But with that said, we can’t forget about the groom that is standing next her. His outfit can completely ruin the mood or style of the wedding day.

Whether it’s traditional, modern, contemporary, or even a mix of both, the outfits do matter.

When choosing his attire, take into account what kind of ceremony you are having, if you are more of the traditional style and are having something more elegant and black attire; you might want to consider something in the darker pallets. A tuxedo is a very formal and traditional choice. Take for example, this tuxedo that was worn at a Florence, Italy garden and ballroom wedding at the Four Seasons Firenze. Solomon our groom below, definitely played the traditional very sophisticated choice of wearing a black tuxedo from Duchamp London.  This was a great compliment with his Gucci shoes. His wife to be so happened to be a designer and she added a nice little bit of flare to this traditional look with a colorful ombre tie from The House of Perna (his wife’s company).

Sticking to a traditional look can also mean you stick to a nice tailor suit. The suit can be navy, black, or even something a little bit in between. This look really is just about keeping it simple with a white shirt with a bowtie or a tie.  I personally love when the groom will layer his look with a vest.  Sascha was able to pull off a very traditional look and keep it casual during the reception by removing his jacket.  He also didn’t match his groomsmen which is also okay to do. I love that the groomsmen kinda follow the same style of dressing but leaving it different for the groom to stand out.  I mean, it is his special day to. He should be able to kinda stand out as well!

If you are having an outdoor wedding and want to keep it more casual; than maybe explore a different color palette all together. Try not to let your environment dictate what you wear, but uses those tones as compliments to your attire. A beach wedding colors are usually muted, and sometimes even brighter than normal ballroom or garden weddings. You can either have khaki tones or very blue-green hues that sometimes surface during these type of ceremonies. I love when the groom takes a small piece from the beach location and just makes it his own. Below are a few of my favorites; and some nice alternatives to the traditional and even modern attire.

And when all fails, and you already have your own uniform, why not wear it.. A man in a uniform has always been a hit.  Definitely capitalize on it if your groom is a man in service. Its a great way to show your respect to what he does for a living, and also nothing beats some dress blues at a wedding..

And after all is said and done, its the small moments that matter really.. If your groom can feel comfortable, than you’ll have the best memories captured, because after all that’s what it’s all about 🙂

A Garden wedding is one of those things that could be the extra touch to your special day..

Garden Wedding Details

They are filled with greenery, and beautiful landscape. The perfect compliment to a beautiful white dress.  Their are special details that make a garden wedding perfect. Such as spending time really reflecting on the mood you want to set. Do you want an edgy garden affair, or do you want something romantic? I got to shoot a very romantic wedding ceremony.

Rose bushes aligned the ceremony site. The Four Seasons Firenze in Florence, Italy did nothing but impress their guest and clients with this beautiful floral arrangement they were able to produce for a beautiful garden wedding. The venue is so antique and refined that the architecture structure is just an added bonus to this garden they have been able to maintain and preserve. Outside the ceremony area that they use, their are beautiful sculptures that are reminiscent of the renaissance period.

They also have a beautiful area that has beautiful wild flowers that are just perfectly placed and align one of the many guest areas.

So what makes a garden wedding, a garden wedding?

Well, I think it has to do with being one with nature. So a beautiful marriage if you will, between nature and elegance. There just something more intimate about having a ceremony outside than in doors. You truly are able to have a weightless but close feeling between your guest and the bride and groom.

roses for wedding guest

Most affairs that are outdoors are usually with smaller parties. And sometimes it just adds to the notion of solidifying a union between two people.

Special touches are everything..

Adding special touches like rose petals on the floors and having a vase for guest to throw at the end of the ceremony can add that special touch as well. Fireworks, bird seeds, and bubbles are usually used for an exit, but nothing says delicate and romantic like throwing gorgeous petals in the air to a congratulate the bride and groom.

The wedding ceremony site at the Four Seasons is filled with gorgeous trees…

The tree’s; Giardino della Gherardesca are  nestled just in the right spots. They shade the sun from creating those awful highlight or hot spots on your guest or bride and groom.  This was a photographer’s dream!

Another awesome touch to the most beautifully romantic garden wedding, why not have lights in the trees? Or better yet why not have beautiful crystal in the trees. They had beautiful chandeliers hanging from the branches of the trees. They were beautifully laced with crystals that just glistened.

Music Choices?

They definitely kept it classic. Creating an elegant  and sophisticated environment by having a violinist or harp player was just the most perfect piece to the garden wedding puzzle. Definitely kept the romantic feel by choosing a lighter sound to walk to.

And what happens after the ceremony? 

For the guest after the wedding, the cocktail hour was outside as well.. Patio seats and tables were arranged outside the garden while the bride and groom took images with me nearby. It was a nice touch to keep the guest feeling like they were a part of every minute of the wedding.

Reception?

The garden wedding’s theme of being romantic didn’t end outside, although this event was brought indoors for the reception the bride and groom’s special touches definitely added to having the perfect day.. Here’s a few of my favorites..
