Brian & Jessica's Countryside Wedding

July 09, 2015  •  3 Comments

A warm summer afternoon in Union County, NC, Brian & Jessica married in the yard of their best friend's home.  The rain was threatening to make it's debut during their ceremony but decided to hold off until after their nuptials allowing this couple to have a beautiful ceremony in the presence of just their closest family members. Here are a few of my favorites to recap their day.

Jessica, you were a beautiful bride!


I love this next series, here's why.  Today, in photography, a big trend that I often encourage brides to do is have a "first look" with their dad.  You capture the dad's expression as he sees his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress.  The emotions are always priceless as he sees his "little girl" just before he gives her away to another man. Well, this is basically the same thing except for this was not a planned moment...It was all candid and I didn't expect to capture this going into their wedding day but here, Jessica's mother-in-law is seeing her son's soon-to-be-wife prior to the ceremony for the first time.  Their reaction is raw and priceless...what a "welcome into the family" this would be!

Those are beautiful! Love the simplicity of the ceremony and reception! Great photography!
Molly, these are perfect. You captured so many real moments and memories for their family. This is my favorite type of wedding, relaxed and unpretentious. It's beautiful! Great work by you!
