I’ve been posting so much wedding stuff lately, but I also adore family sessions.  The natural joy and exuberance of toddlers is so fun to photograph!  Love this sweet family:)

Scott and Tiffany’s wedding at the Sutherland was a lovely and elegant Gatsby-style affair under the flowing white drapes and chandeliers that transformed the outdoor pavilion.  Gold and rose and white were the colors Tiffany chose, and every detail was carefully planned for a wonderful wedding day.   The afternoon rain showers dissipated just in time for photos and a night of dancing ended with a dramatic confetti exit to their getaway car!

Stacy forgot to tell be before our scheduled bridal session at her parents’ home in Southern Pines that they happened to have The Coolest Driveway in the History of the World.  I could have photographed her among those impossibly tall and beautiful pines all day!  Fortunately we just completed her session as the rain hit and it was time to say goodbye.  But, now that Stacy and Steve are married, I can share!!  Love Stacy’s gorgeous dress and autumn bouquet:)

Logan and Erica planned a wonderful destination wedding at a new (to me!) venue, the lovely secluded Destin Bay House.  All of their friends and family came in for a fun rehearsal dinner dolphin cruise, and then reunited the following day for a relaxed and joyful wedding ceremony right by the bay.

I was so excited to head back to Duke Gardens for Eric and Alice’s beautiful dusk waterside wedding.  Duke University is special to them because they met here while in post graduate programs at the same time.  Alice wowed everyone with FOUR gorgeous dresses and they incorporated many traditional Chinese customs into their emotional vows, including the ceremony of the three bows, and a tea ceremony.  Guests came from as far away as Australia and China to celebrate with them, and after the festivities were over, they exited through a tunnel of sparklers in traditional clothing to their getaway car.

One of the side effects of a super busy fall season is getting so behind on blog posts that I’ll probably need to devote a week to putting them all together.  Here is one of my favorite weddings from this past summer:)  Ashley and Cody were married on a bright sunny day at Carillon Beach.  Coral and silver details and a fun joyful spirit dominated the day.  Sitting here on a freezing fall morning it is a delight to sort through the sunshiny color-saturated images from a few months ago and feel a little warmer:)
