{Carolyn + Vincent} • Wedding Sneak Peek!

These two world travelers shared their big day with friends and family in a peaceful mountain setting. Their decor was beautiful, unique, and a perfect representation of the two of them.

When I first met with Vincent and Carolyn I knew that their wedding was going to be true to their personalities. They knew what they wanted and went for it. I love it! It’s easy for couples to get caught up in the planning and steer off course from what their ideal wedding day looks like. These two did a fantastic job with the planning, keeping it just as they envisioned!

When I arrived at Wolf Laurel Resort on their wedding day I took a few minutes to walk around and look at the layout and decor. Carolyn and Vincent’s wedding theme was Chinese country, and it was very cool! From a rustic pavilion where the reception would occur, to Chinese decorations, it was very unique and beautiful!

Next I sought out the bride and bridesmaids for final getting ready photos. They were just about ready for me when I arrived, so I quickly borrowed Carolyn’s dress and hung it on the side of the great hall for some gorgeous shots. After that we captured some photos of Carolyn getting in her dress and the bridesmaids finishing touches on makeup and hair.

Carolyn and Vincent opted to schedule many of their wedding party photos before the ceremony. Well, at least those that they didn’t need to see each other for. This is a fantastic option for larger wedding parties and larger families. It can significantly cut down on the time needed for photos between the ceremony and reception.

Soon it was time for the ceremony. Their ceremony was held by the pond with a great view. Their hand written vows were funny and memorable, and their chosen readings were heartfelt and sincere. It was a beautiful ceremony filled with laughter, smiles, and love.

When the ceremony finished we moved on to family photos and the remaining wedding party photos. This wedding party was a hoot! We all had a fantastic time creating funny wedding party photos, and they turned out great!

Before the reception Carolyn took a couple of minutes to change into her reception dress. It was another gorgeous red dress to highlight her fun evening ahead! Vincent and Carolyn had many fun plans for the reception. From a fast paced first dance finishing with quick trade partner dancing, to dragon dancing just before dark, everyone had a great time!

This wedding day was unique, fun, full of family and friends, and had plenty of laughter and love to go around.

Congratulations! Thank you for asking me to capture your special day.
