Back in November I posted about my fall engagement session with Jessica and Matt at the Umstead Park. These two were so warm and kind and full of laughter! And I was incredibly honored to photograph their big day. Well…today I’m delighted to follow up with a sneak peek at the pictures of their April wedding at The Bradford! What a wonderful day!
Being present on multiple steps in a couples’ journey is always meaningful for me. So of course I was looking forward to Jessica and Matt’s wedding quite a bit! Theirs was an emotional one, my favorite kind. Happy tears stood in the Jessica’s eyes several times over the course of the day. She was radiant, and Matt was clearly loving every moment! Surrounded by family and friends in the glow of a mid-April afternoon…what a way to tie the knot! I’m so grateful I was there!
This wedding brought the pleasure of watching A Southern Soiree at work for the first time. All I can say is Wow! This team absolutely loves what they do, and it shows! Gina wore a big smile throughout the celebration, gracing the event with her calm and positive attitude. I hope to work alongside these folks again soon and many times to come! (If you’re considering a wedding planning service, I definitely recommend taking a look at A Southern Soiree’s website.)
When Jessica and her mom Beth held hands and looked a each other, happy tears started flowing! Awwwww! A delight to photograph!
