Erin and Chris’ North Carolina wedding day was as vibrant and exciting as they are. A day both light-hearted and laughter-filled. A celebration of love, cherished memories, southern charm and brand new adventures.
Erin’s heart of gold is radiant, infusing her relationships with family and friends. Chris absolutely lights up around her, and it’s easy to see just how much he loves her. Chris is fun-loving, funny and the perfect balance for Erin.
They chose Whitehurt Lake House in Washington, North Carolina as their venue, weaving elegant southern charm throughout their day, from shimmery gray bridesmaids’ dresses to classic black tuxedos to extraordinary floral arrangements by Val Conger with Your Perfect Day. The fairy tale arrangements were both colorful and muted, structured and loose, a perfect balance of southern elegance, and seriously out of this world!
Photographing Erin and Chris was so easy. They simply radiated joy and lightness, exuding such calm before the ceremony, simply enjoying each moment of their day as it unfolded.
The ceremony began with a prelude of Beatles’ music played by an acoustic, classical guitarist. As he played, I felt momentarily as if time stood still under those blue cotton skies, as if I’d suddenly stepped right into a fairy tale.
As the prelude drew to a close, Chris was laughing and light-hearted, as he prepared to walk down the aisle and see his bride for the first time. Then Erin appeared, time stilled, and Chris’ eyes welled with tears. I felt like I could swim in his love for her in that moment.
The reception was electric, the dance floor rarely empty. Toward the end of the evening, with his very own karaoke rendition of Michael Jackson, Chris brought the house to its feet, dozens of cell phones recording, guests screaming, cheering, laughing, exuberant.
An incredible celebration of family and friends, laughter and love, southern charm and brand new adventures.
