We had the best time at Chelsea and Jim’s wedding! They are such a happy couple and Chelsea was the most radiant bride. She was flashing her gorgeous dimples all day! The only person at the wedding who could possibly have overshadowed her was her precious little ring bearer who nailed every shot we put him in.

We got a great vibe going with Chelsea and Jim when we did their engagement session, so photographing their wedding was like hanging out with old friends. And we were so happy to be back at Belle Mer. We’ve photographed a lot of weddings there and are always impressed with them — especially their planners who work so hard to make everything look effortless. The venue was perfectly complemented by the flowers by Greenlion Designs, another one of our faves. Her designs are so unfussy and perfectly imperfect, and she gives off this vibe like she spends her days frolicking in fields of flowers. We love her!

Chelsea and Jim, thanks for making us part of your day. We hope your life together is as full of dancing and laughter as your wedding!

We often think of the couples we photograph long after their wedding, but we rarely expect them to think about us! So what a surprise it was when months after their fall 2019 wedding, Haley and John reached out to us during the pandemic to make sure we were okay. We were so touched by this sweet couple and loved the time we spent with them taking their engagement and wedding photos.

Haley and John’s wedding was so much fun. The reception was at Jonathan Edwards winery in Connecticut, so you know we were happily in our element! The grape vines were gorgeously complemented by the floral arrangements by Hana Floral Design. And the dancing did. not. stop! This wedding was so joyful.

Haley and John, a toast to you with wine from that gorgeous vineyard! Thank you for letting us be part of your day.

A knot soaked in water becomes nearly impossible to unravel, which is why they say a couple who ties the knot in a downpour will be together forever. If that’s the case, nothing will tear Kassie and Terry apart! Just before their ceremony began, the skies opened into a southern-style storm that disappeared nearly as soon as it arrived. It was like Mother Nature approved of their union. And that’s so fitting because Kassie has a long-held belief in being one with the universe.

Despite a last-minute ceremony location change — from outdoors to inside the barn at Blue Ridge Farm — the bride’s and groom’s smiles never faltered. This wedding burst with life and was filled with little nods to nature. Greenery from Southern Blooms cascaded from the ceiling and poured from vases, a custom-made moon arch was the perfect photo backdrop and a huge tree installation illustrated Kassie’s incredible speech that described the people in her life as her roots. But nothing was more vibrant than the bride, radiant in her chartreuse gown.

Kassie and Terry, we know you waited a long time to find each other, and we’re so glad we were witness to your love story!
