Here we go! Many of you have been patiently waiting for these to be posted.... either because you're friends with someone involved in the shoot, know the location or you're just plain excited :-)
We decided back in late January to do this project. We picked the colors, we picked the location... then we had the task of whipping it all together! I had the best time doing this project... in a way, it was kind of like getting to plan my wedding all over again. :-)
A little background on why pink & gray: I wanted to use my mom's (now mine & Jeremy's) wedding china. As you'll see in the photos it's trimmed in silver. I also decided to use her silver flatware. With that, we wanted to make it a little more modern, than traditional- so we thew in the peach & pink!
The location: One of my favorite places on earth... Moores Springs Campground. It's owned by NC State as part of the neighboring Sertoma 4-H Center (where we got married, I spent many weeks of summer as a camper & 2 summers on staff.... aka... it holds a special place with me!). The campground flooded the end of last summer, and has been closed until further notice.... making it an even more perfect place for us to shoot... we wouldn't be battling other people!
On Good Friday, I was offered the opportunity by Renee Sprink to 2nd shoot with her... I was beyond thrilled! She's so sweet and such a hard worker. For my first wedding, this was perfect- plenty of opportunity to learn in tough situations (ahem, super bright sunlight!) and to get my feet wet at a smaller, intimate wedding.
Debbie & Will, thank you so much for allowing me to tag along with Renee. I hope you enjoyed Jamaica!!!
Renee & I lucked out with this awesome barn across the street from the church :-) Beautiful Pine Trees!
My Favorite!!! Rings... in a natural tree "cubby hole" Yummy cake & brownies! Brownies are Debbie and Will's "thing"! They had them on their first date, and have been enjoying them on dates ever since! Happily. Ever. After.
