The Ivy Place | Outdoor Summer Wedding | Kristina & Dan by Kelli Conley

Kristina and Dan are just so natural in front of the camera. They didn't think so, and I remember at their engagement session they were so nervous and wanted me to direct them, but it turns out I really didn't have too. They are just so in love with each other and have so much fun together it made my job a breeze. When it came to the wedding day I was so excited to be able to capture this same emotion and relationship they have with each other. Their wedding went on without a hitch and although it was a warm day in August it was actually overcast which keep it feeling cooler, and right at sunset the sun peeked out for just a moment leading to some of the prettiest sunset pictures I have ever taken!

Loray Mill Wedding | Lindsey & Nathan by Kelli Conley

Lindsey and Nathan are just the sweetest! When I first met Lindsey to chat about her wedding day we skyped since she was in school in Wilmington and I feel like we just clicked right away! Then throughout the whole wedding planning process I knew that her wedding would be beautiful and filled with emotion. They decided to get married in their local church and to have the reception at the beautiful Loray Mill. One of the photos she specifically requested was for me to get pictures of her and Nathan in the prayer room immediately following their processional at the end of their ceremony. I absolutely adore these pictures of them share those first minutes as husband and wife in that prayer room. They also had one of the sweetest first looks I have witnessed, and were surrounded by beautiful stained glass from the church’s windows. Also their reception could not have been more fun, they had such a beautiful ambiance in the mill. And their bridal party and guests were such a blast to hang out with in the photo booth, on the dance floor, and during their beautiful sparkler exit!

River Run Country Club Wedding | Bri & Ryan | October 8TH, 2016 by Kelli Conley

Not even a hurricane could stop Bri & Ryan from having one of the best days of their life! When I got to the River Run Country Club I remember checking in on Bri and she wasn’t phased a bit that a hurricane had hit that morning and she wouldn’t be able to have her ceremony outside like she had envisioned. She was just happy to be marrying Ryan no matter what the weather. Their amazing planner Amanda helped transform the ballroom into a gorgeous ceremony space with an amazing display of candles and flowers in front of the fireplace. Everyone was in awe of how beautiful it all turned out considering, and to top it off a rainbow appeared right after the ceremony! Bri also didn’t worry one bit about wet grass and followed along as I took them to a beautiful bridge just down the way for their couples portraits (the videographer even brought out his drone). So no need to worry about a hurricane on your wedding day, there always seems to be a beautiful rainbow at the end!
