Ashley + Craig's engagement session was one of my favorites to date. It was so personal and fun and, happily, their wedding was the same :) From the "Snail Wedding" title and theme, to the cotton bouquets, Ashley's unicorn silly band and the toy pig decorating her headpiece, this wedding fit Craig and Ashley perfectly.
Two other fun things about this wedding - it took place in my home church! This is where we attend Sunday mornings and is basically awesome :) And my husband was the second shooter for this wedding! He's been working with me more and more and I love it. Plus, he's pretty good!
Venue : Daystar Christian Fellowship
Flowers : Clemmons Florist
Catering : Salem Kitchen
Cake : Delicious
Check out these saucy shoes. Love the colors!
It was *so hot* outside but Ashley was a trooper and followed me to the edges of the parking lot for a few minutes of portraits before I headed to shoot with the guys.
As usual, the guys were totally chillin' while getting ready (does anybody say "chillin'" anymore?) and Craig was looking good!
I love this shot of the guys. I also love large bridal parties... more people, more fun!
Craig gave me his model face for this shot. Looking good!
That is one happy groom :)
The whole bridal party danced back down the aisle to a song by the Killers. It was so much fun.
Check out this decor! I was a little worried about having the reception in the youth room but Matti Carey totally transformed it! The reception was filled with origami snails, succulents, mason jars, cotton, and little notebooks for guests to draw pictures and write notes to Ashley and Craig.
Jonathan caught this cute moment between the newlyweds while all the guests were getting food.
We got to sneak out of the reception for a little while to do some photos of Craig and Ashley together. You know, husband-and-wife style :)
I love this shot that Jonathan grabbed. So cute!
While everyone was hanging out in the reception, Jonathan followed these guys to document the decorating of the getaway vehicle. This photo cracks me up!
The grand exit has quickly become one of my favorite things to photograph. I love all the joyful faces and reactions :)
The groomsmen didn't exactly use all empty cans for the back of the vehicle. So funny!
