I absolutely ADORE Abbie & Andrew Johnson!

I met them more than a year ago, when I photographed Abbie’s Maid of Honor {Jennifer’s} Wedding in Asheville!

A couple days later, Abbie contacted me to shoot HER Wedding which would be in Wilmington, NC!

Needless to say, I was thrilled! 🙂

Over the last year, I’ve gotten to know Abbie & Andrew since shooting their Engagement Portrait Session last spring, Abbie’s Bridal Portrait Session this spring & various corespondence throughout the year!

I have to say, they are one of the sweetest couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with!

They’re both such kind, easy going, fun people & I’ve grown really fond of them…

ESPECIALLY since sharing in their Destination Wedding Weekend with them last week!

What an incredibly Beautiful day!

I’m say’n… they thought of EVERY detail!!!!

The day couldn’t have possibly been more perfect…

It was just a visual feast, all day long & I’m so in love with these photographs from such a fun day! 🙂

St. Thomas preservation Hall in Downtown Wilmington is probably one of my favorite venues I’ve ever photographed, the LIGHT in that room!!!

Holy Jeeeeez was it BEAUTIFUL!

And the team at Port City Event Planners REALLY out did themselves with the Floral, Planning, Arrangement, & Coordination of Andrew & Abbie’s Big Day!!!

It was just PERFECT!

Enough Words… Enjoy!

Hold on tight! This one’s a DOOZY!

I met Abbie in April 2014 when I was photographing Charlie & Jennifer Horn’s Wedding!

Abbie grew up just west of Asheville & went to Western Carolina University where she met Jennifer & Abbie was Jennifer’s Maid of Honor that day!

About a week later, maybe it was even just a day later, I can’t remember…

Abbie calls me to book HER wedding with me & get this…

IT’S IN WILMINGTON!!!

{TODAY} 🙂

I was SO flattered that Abbie loved my photographs and I was so grateful that Jennifer & Charlie loved me & had such wonderful things to say to Abbie about me!

I have loved EVERY minute of working with Abbie & Andrew over the last year & am absolutely THRILLED to be have been their Wedding Photographer!

The nice thing about waiting till just a month before your Wedding to shoot your Bridal Portrait Session is that

{beyond the obvious – scheduling it on the same day as your hair/makeup trial run}

is that – {I} don’t have to wait so long to share the GORGEOUS photos!

Abbie was SUCH a BEAUTIFUL Bride!!!

I just love her to pieces! 🙂

Anyway, incase you missed it today, here she is:

Mrs. Johnson!

When you’ve been friends with someone for as long as I’ve known Julie Rabon, you become the kind of Friends that feel more like Family.

You become the kind of friends that share in all of Life’s many ups & downs…

You are there for each other to divide the heavy burden of sorrow or disappointment, you encourage each other & make each other laugh! You multiply each other’s JOY and you CELEBRATE the big milestones in each other’s lives because you’ve been ROOTING for each other all along! 🙂

Julie has been one of my very best friends since I was 5 years old!

{and I’ll tell ya, I never thought she’d get over JTT – that’s Jonathan Taylor Thomas for those of you who don’t get the Home Improvement reference!} LOL 🙂 jk

I digress…

There have been seasons when life has taken us in different directions, but when it’s a bond like ours, you’re ALWAYS rooting for one another, no matter what!

A little over a year ago, when Julie called to tell me about Jesse & that he had come back into her life after several years apart & told her that he had never stopped thinking about her & that he had never stopped missing her & told her that he wanted to move back to Charlotte to be with her, to give their relationship the real chance that it never got…

{Jesse moved away shortly after they met but they always kept in touch and saw each other when they could!}

I could hear it in her voice… Julie was hopeful, she was excited & THIS was different!

After Jesse moved to Charlotte, I would spend time with Julie & Jesse whenever I would come to town & I was SO Happy for my friend because it was clear, that Jesse was PERFECT for her!

When they face timed me at Christmas to casually show me a Big, BEAUTIFUL Engagement Ring, I CELEBRATED that WIN for them!

I was SO Happy for my friend!

So Happy that she & Jesse found each other again, So Happy that she’s found her life’s partner!

Over the last year, I’ve gotten to know Jesse &  I’m just so impressed with what a patient, kind, funny, wonderfully loving man he is for my friend.

I am SO. HAPPY for the two of them & I am SO Honored to be their Wedding Photographer! 🙂

I cannot wait to witness their I’DO’s this October at Eseeola Lodge in Linville, NC!

We shot their Engagement Portrait Session last month while I was in Charlotte

Julie, Jesse & I poured over wardrobe choices and bopped around to a few different places in Uptown Charlotte for their Engagement Session!

My FAVORITE photos are the ones where they make each other laugh! 🙂

Congratulations you two!

I’m so incredibly HONORED to be part of it!

I’ve been SO incredibly BUSY that I haven’t had any time at all to Blog about all of the BEAUTIFUL things that I’ve been shooting lately!

What have I been doing you ask!?

Well, I’ve been shooting A LOT of Weddings, Traveling, Shooting Engagement Sessions, Traveling some more & shooting Beautiful Bridal Portrait Sessions!!!

I’ve also been preparing for Abbie & Andrew’s big day {which is coming up this Saturday in Wilmington, NC} & have been building TWO Brand NEW WEBSITES & preparing for a SIX WEEK trip to Ireland {I’m leaving on Monday} where I’ll be photographing THREE Weddings there this June!!! 🙂

No Big Deal, right!?!

So, true to form, it’s time to play a good ole game of crazy lady blog catch up!

Let’s start with Kevin & Hannah’s Beautiful Destination Wedding at Laurel Ridge Country Club  last month!

Hannah & Kevin met when while working for the same engineering firm in Louisiana!

One look at Sweet Hannah & it’s easy to see why Kevin fell in love with her!

That smile of hers lights up every room she walks into!

Kevin’s family lives in North Carolina, so they decided to tie the knot in our Beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains at Laurel Ridge Country Club in Waynesville, NC!

Hannah & Kevin planned an beautiful, intimate  Wedding with mostly just family & they even had a few of their friends who made the trip to NC to help them celebrate the occasion!

Kevin & Hannah – Thank You SO Much for asking me to be part of such a special day for the two of you & your families!

I really enjoyed getting to know you and working with you over this last year!

Many Blessings for a Long & Happy Life Together!

XOX

PS- that was the Best Cake I’ve EVER had! 🙂
