@thelayoverlife_ ’s BIG DAY!
Basically, everything was #weddinggoals . From the venue (@weddings_dunctonmill swipe!), to the decoration (which the bride, groom and family did themselves), the photo arch, the cocktails (which were named after the bride and groom), the tables (which had the names of the countries Jess and Freddie had traveled to as a couple), the music (live sax player! swipe to see) and most of all, the guests ❤️ Obvi, the bride and @aliceparr, my favorite twins in all the landdd—and who introduced me to Harry Potter (as they gave me the 4th book as a birthday present when we were 12 or so) and who I meet up with by chance (and sometimes planned) all over the world (NYC twice, Jess in Madrid as we went to study abroad at the same time, Alice in Bristol, and both in South Africa!). I love you two so much ❤️ Also so wonderful to see their awesome big sister, @stylelobster, and their sweet parents, Mandy (in the 4th pic) and Roger, who gave us Puerto Ricans (@elhoudini, @carmssb and Roberto) a shout out in his hilarious father-of-the-bride speech (see the last video!)!
Last but not least, got to see @jade90_x and @leannebrl, who I had not seen in 9 years 💕(swipe!). Plus just getting to know all the other guests there! It was an unforgettable day ❤️
Some more of the pictures from our styled wedding shoot. We had so much fun, please check out all the amazing businesses that made this day possible. I highly recommend any of them to those planning a wedding or any event in/around Wilmington, NC
You would think shooting two days of weddings would be tiring and while you’re right, it’s also so energizing, inspiring, and humbling. My couples this weekend were amazing and their trust in me kept me excited to document this moment in their lives together, the dream team of vendors I’ve worked with over the past two days have given their all to crafting such beautiful, heartfelt wedding days for my couples. I can’t believe these amazing newlyweds chose ME to be such an integral part of this step in their lives. I wish I could go back a decade and tell my past self, 300+ weddings ago, stressed about her first wedding, just how awesome this path I had stumbled onto would be.

I don’t know about y’all, but I could go for some macaroons right about now. I started this new journey to a healthier me- you know, working out and dieting. I’m a whole 3 days in and man I’d kill for a delicious treat right this instant. Alas, I’ll just admire these beauties and think about how good they probably are. .
