Sweet Sara and Doug! These two lovies have a relationship and affection for one another that is confident and secure. They are both in the military, so they endure long stretches away from each other. I admire anyone that can gracefully handle being away from their favorite person for such long periods of time. Sara and her ladies got their hair and makeup done at the super cool Junction Salon in downtown Raleigh before heading to Garner to The Rand-Bryan House for their ceremony and reception. It’s always a beautiful day at the Rand-Bryan. The florals were stunningly put together by Teacup Florals, who we are running into at more and more weddings. They are good people that do good work! What a wonderful wedding to be a part of!
Hello, Are you planning your wedding?
We know the beginning of the year is when recently engaged couples kick their wedding planning into high gear. If you are here to look at our wedding photography, you can easily see just those posts by going to “Story Types” over there on the right side of the blog and selecting “Weddings”. From there you can see tons of weddings that we have photographed. Then go to “Tell Your Story” to send us an email- can’t wait to hear more about your wedding day!
Baby I’s parents are some of our dearest friends from our time at Campbell University – classmates, roommates, bandmates, etc. We love these people!! And just like all people we love it is surreal and wonderful and mind-blowing to watch them create this whole new life who is like them and yet his own little person all at the same time. I wanted to put both Baby I’s actual first birthday and then his party (two different days) into this blogpost- you are going to fall over from the cuteness. It’s like we JUST took Baby I’s newborn pictures and then we blinked and now he is one. Where does the time go?? The benefit to blogging both his birth day AND his party is that you get to see him devour a smash cake twice. This one was not one of those kids that isn’t too interested in their cake. This little man LOVED IT. Baby I, we are so honored to get to watch you grow!
And now for some party images…
From top to bottom, reading left to right, Behold! Anniversaries 1-9. We are in the business of weddings so I can’t help but talk about marriage (your wedding is not the same as your marriage). So if you’ve been connected with me on social media for awhile you might be rolling your eyes at another anniversary post but hey, it’s what we do. We tell love stories and encourage love. This week on our ninth anniversary it was just one of those days… sometimes life isn’t perfect on special days such as this. There was work and tears and big conversations and lots of adulting…. But at the end of that day, like every day for nine years, David and I can say that we still chose each other. That the hard work of marriage is work that is worth it when you choose the right person. So the next day we took a do over. We postponed our anniversary and it ended up being a very low key, very relaxing one. David Teeter, I do love you so much and could not be more thankful for you. PS I’ve said it before and I will say it again- be in pictures with your favorite people.
