Josh & Jill’s wedding day was the first time this year that Kevin and I actually felt like fall was finally arriving. The sun was shining, the breeze was whirling through the tree branches and the leaves began to fall. How appropriate it was for their rustic, fall wedding themed with apples and sunflower decorations.
Josh & Jill love going to Tennessee and when they do, they always visit “The Apple Barn”; its one of their favorite spots. Throughout their wedding, elements of apples and leaves and sunflowers provided splashes of fall color to complement the perfect fall-eqsue air outside. Jill couldn’t have planned it any better.
If you have been following our blog, you got a chance to see Jill’s incredible bridal portraits taken at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh. As radiant as she was in her bridal portraits, I think she exuded even more happiness and an overwhelming amount of love on her wedding day. Jill is such a sweet heart and it was an absolute honor to spend the past few months getting to know her and her family as the wedding preparations were being made. Its safe to say that Josh is marrying into a wonderful family that thinks the world of him! Not to mention, Jill’s parents’ names & her sister’s name all start with the letter J. So…Josh was destined to be the one for her. Josh & Jill chose to do a first look before their wedding. In case you are new to the photography realm, a first look is more of a modern way to photograph the bride & groom seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day. We set up their first look outside by a rustic barn to capture the essence of their day. In a quaint setting with just the two of them, Josh was able to see his bride in all her glory. He was able to take in all of her details, the sequins on her floral sash, the buttons down her dress, her hair, and all the beauty that she radiated.
Lets talk about these adorable little ones! They were hands down the sweetest kids to photograph & I think they take the cake for the most adorable. Plus, sweet baby boy Maxton stole everyone’s heart with his hat, bow tie, suspenders and those big blue eyes!From the macarena, to the Wobble and then the chicken dance…I think its safe to say that a great time was had by all. Jill really wanted to convey a feeling of togetherness at her wedding. She wanted everyone to gather as friends, family, and loved ones – making memories and cherishing each other’s company. We were so honored to be their photographers and document their wedding story.
Josh & Jill– Our hope is that as you look through this blog, you are brought back to this very day where you became husband and wife. What an amazing day it was and we are truly honored to have been your photographers. Thank you for entrusting us to capture one of the best days of your life. Here’s to your amazing life together!
