Brooke + Ruben. Burke Manor Wedding. Gibsonville, NC.

I have been looking forward to photographing Brooke and Ruben's wedding since I met them for their first consultation last year. They are both so sweet and, as you've seen from their bridal and groom sessions, really good looking :)

Brooke really took on the planning of her wedding and most everything was DIY! She used tons of Etsy vendors for some really unique details that fit in with the purple/blue peacock theme.

The details . . .
Venue : Burke Manor Inn. Gibsonville, NC
Bride's Hair/Makeup : Deja Groove
DJ : Island Sound
Cake : Buy Me Cake
Catering : Burke Manor Inn

I love this sweet moment of Brooke's maid of honor, Dominique, wiping away a tear while Brooke was finishing getting ready.

006

I still can't get over Brooke's bouquet! It was created by Etsy vendor Croska and was made out of fabric, lace, and embellished with pearls and vintage broaches. So gorgeous and unique!

I love when the guys get to wear something other than dress shoes :)

The girls waited inside the Manor for the ceremony to start.

Dominique was keeping Ruben's ring before the ceremony and we thought it would be funny to do the traditional hand on hand ring shot with two best friends :)

I always love seeing the groom's face while he watches his bride come down the aisle. Sometimes there are tears but Ruben was all smiles! They were just so excited to get married.

There were so many different emotions going on after the ceremony, I loved capturing the tears, hugs, smiles, and kisses :)

The light was so gorgeous during the romantics.
