May 23rd, 2015 was such a beautiful day in more ways than one. You see, Ava and Kyle united their lives together before God and their family & friends in Kyle's home church in Marshville, NC. Their wedding was what I would classify as vintage, southern charm. A classic church wedding is a timeless setting that still offers such a feeling sacredness even in today's modern times. This ceremony was one of the sweetest to witness. As a photographer, I see many brides and their families and to witness these two families with their son and daughter as they became one, was especially touching as you will see in the pictures of their day. I think some of the warmest moments are spent in the company of truly, good hearted people who strive to make others feel comfortable...Ave & Kyle (as well as their families) are those people! Thank you to the two of you for letting me be a part of not only your wedding day, but also to be a part of your lives over the last year! I wish you both many years of happiness together!
