We loved getting to photograph this super special NC Backyard Wedding day!
William & Hannah chose a close family friend’s home to host their ceremony. The gorgeous home & property is sentimental and made the perfect venue for these two to tie the knot. The day started off bright and sunny but as the day began unfolding, a big Summer rain storm fell upon us, right in time for the ceremony. Luckily, everyone was calm and collected and decided to wait out the storm, knowing how quickly these rain clouds can come and go on hot Summer days.
William & Hannah already shared a sweet first look moment, beneath the huge magnolia trees, so all their friends & family waited patiently together inside, for the rain to subside. Friends played piano, chatted, and laughed together while waiting for the heaviest part of the storm to disappear.
The storm mostly let up and everyone pitched in with getting the ceremony site quickly reset. They even used a leaf blower to dry off the chairs. With everyone seated and ready to go, the ceremony proceeded. Even with rain drops still falling overhead, guests popped up umbrellas, and William & Hannah exchange their vows. There was no dampening the happy, joyful moment of this God honoring union. William & Hannah’s ceremony was filled with prayer, family embraces, and happy tears. Everyone was beaming and we loved that William’s dad officiated this amazing moment, for them. These two could not have had bigger smiles on their faces.
If the rain wasn’t enough, guests then showered the newlyweds in lavender and it was, in our opinions, a perfect moment of joy.
These two hosted their fun wedding reception at Rich Fork. They had Dominos pizza, Capri Sun, and lots of sweet treats. We especially adored the grape soda caps that William & Hannah pinned to their wedding attire. Another thoughtful detail from the amazing Pixar movie, UP!
The sun finally popped back out perfectly in time for all their family photos. Then these two ended their perfect day with tons of dancing and a sparkler exit.
William & Hannah, thank you for allowing us to document this special day, for you both. We enjoyed every minute of getting to work with you and your sweet families!
