Since we shot their engagement session out in Waxhaw (one of my all-time favorite sessions), we had been SO looking forward to Corley and Josh's wedding day which took place on July 25th in Rock Hill, SC.
The ceremony was at a very cute church - Grace Lutheran - and the reception was held at the Center for the Arts in downtown Rock Hill. Their reception actually reminded Geoff and I a lot of our own wedding reception, which we had at the art galleries in Spirit Square here in Charlotte. :)
Their day went off without a hitch - this sounds cheesy, I know.....but both of them were just so full of joy and love. I love these two. Probably my favorite part of the day was watching them say their vows to each other - each word was said with SUCH incredible intention....you just knew they really meant what they were committing to each other. :)
Hair/Makeup - Kymm McLean w/ Who's the Fairest
Flowers - The Flower Diva
Caterer/Cake - Melanie Rowe
We recently bought an actual macro lens - but didn't have it yet for Corley and Josh's wedding. What to do? Turn that 50mm around backward, hold it against the camera body...while not breathing....and presto! Beautiful ring shot. :)
I took A LOT of dress pictures - I was loving the resemblance to Mondrian.
I like these guys.....
....and this little guy. :)
Being around Corley just makes you feel so dang HAPPY inside. Seriously - she is just such a joyful person (and don't get my started on how full of expression she is)....really rubs off on you. :)
Hello, Josh. Looking good....looking very good. :)
This one's a total favorite of Corley.....see the JOY I'm talking about?
And then, she totally blows me out of the water by pulling THIS look. Girl - you are ridiculously gorgeous.
Another favorite - this one's going to have to go on the website. Thanks, Josh. :)
Corley forgot to grab her bouquet back before walking back down the aisle......
.....no problem - her brother (her man of honor) fulfilled his duties. :)
I love a great photojournalistic shot like this one that Geoff grabbed right after Corley and Josh got outside the doors of the sanctuary. Newly married and loving it. :)
And here's another great one Geoff got of Corley and her girls as they waited for the church to clear out.
No doubt I looked the fool with my head sticking out of our sun roof as we followed Corley and Josh to the reception. I'd say, it was worth it. :)
Can you believe that he told me he wasn't a very good jumper right before we took this?
I die over this one.
And this one? A definite favorite.
Congrats you two - we love ya! :)
