I’ve known Jenifer for probably eighteen or nineteen years. I met her at our church when I was around 10 years old. (wow… I’m feeling super old right about now!) We have a piece of history that’s really sweet to think about, and we’ve even jumped through London puddles together almost two decades ago. We pretty much never see each other except on social media, funerals and now a wedding… I’ve kept up with her life over time, and I’ve always thought highly of her and her amazing family.
Jenifer and Adam met on a mission trip to Jamaica one glorious year, and the rest is history…. four children later plus one on the way. Now ten years have passed and they wanted to to do something special for their tenth anniversary. Jenifer planned a vow renewal on the property of River Oaks Retreat Center. In the middle of the woods with their closest friends and family, they renewed their vows.
The sweetest part for me was to photograph the process of these two getting their children ready for this event. I shoot weddings all the time, but what made this one special and unique was seeing the product of their love–their children, involved in the day.
Congrats on ten beautiful years, Jenifer & Adam! I’m so happy we got to be a part of your day! 😉
And a special shout out to my husband, Brandon, who shot this wedding with me. You’re the best.
I hope you enjoyed this photography in the Carolina’s at River Oaks Retreat Center of Jenifer and Adams ten year anniversary vow renewal ceremony!
Phil and Laura are getting married near Boone, NC in the meadows of Grandfather Mountain this summer. So we decided for their engagement photography that we would embark on a glorious adventure up the Blue Ridge Parkway.
They love the outdoors, they love the wild, the free, the fun, and the adventurous and they wanted their engagement session to have that same feeling. As we drove, we stopped the car whenever we felt like it and jumped out to shoot. We started on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we climbed to the top of mountains, and then we stopped the car for the finale of running through tall thick green wild grass and watching the sun set over the mountains. Their summer, rustic, outdoor, bohemian Blue Ridge Parkway wedding is going to be so incredible!
We also teamed up with Bohemian Ink, who did custom hand-lettering for their invitations, signs and save-the-dates.
This session means a lot to me because I’ve known Phil my entire life. He has been family to me. I’m so thrilled to see him marry Laura! She is stunning and beautiful inside and out.
I hope you enjoyed this engagement photography. I’m so excited to get to shoot their Blue Ridge Parkway wedding this summer! 😉
