For all of the outside ceremonies we've been shooting lately, we've really been blessed with some great weather. Hot, yes. Humid, for sure. But, at least it's been dry! Brooke and Matt were married on a gorgeous day in May out in Waxhaw at the Manor House. It was our first time shooting there and we hope it won't be our last - it really is a pretty piece of property. Plus, Brooke told me they took care of the catering, flowers, tent, rentals and horse and carriage....full package!
And THIS, my friends, is a new favorite shoe shot. :)
Now, I'm sure I've made mention of this before on my blog, but it must be said again. Future brides - I urge you to thoughtfully plan out where you'll be putting on your dress - I've shot in some GORGEOUS places for this.....and some just the opposite. Truly, it does make all the difference to have a decent size room with the ability for natural light to come in. Pretty furniture and nice wall color/carpet never hurt anyone either. :)
As it turns out, the Manor House has one of the prettiest getting ready rooms I've seen. :)
Dang girl - you are SOOOO pretty!
Brooke's bridesmaids were awesome - super helpful, nice and a lot of fun. Plus, they are gorgeous.
I'm loving these next two shots Geoff got of Matt. You can tell that he is like THE nicest guy...huh?
This one is an all time favorite portrait. For real.
SCORE. There was a candy buffet. And it was amazing. I NEVER, EVER get tired of candy buffet's at a reception - I am forever indebted to whoever invented the concept of a candy buffet.
Love this moment.

Congratulations Matt and Brooke! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together! :)
