Sarah and Paul’s wedding was just a few days after we returned from Iceland and I’m pretty sure they were decently worried that a volcano would erupt or we’d fall into a crevasse while we were there, so kudos to them for not attempting to get their retainer back when we told them we were going on a trip. However, I feel slightly guilty about the added stress that I think we might’ve caused, but in the end we survived and emailed Sarah as soon as we got home so she’d know we outlived our vacation. ;)

But once the stress of their photographers potentially dying passed, the weather report came in and replaced their old worries with new ones as the previous 74 degree days suddenly turned into 51 degree days with a craaaazy wind that made it feel more like 30 degrees. :) Oh, and it was supposed to rain a lot. Turns out that it didn’t rain, but that the cold was indeed quite bitter and the wind was so strong that it blew Sarah’s veil straight off her head twice (kudos to Alex the videographer for literally catching it in mid-air). They made the call to have the wedding indoors, but that didn’t protect them from doing pictures outside (sorry guys) in the cold (seriously, we are so sorry).

But they were troopers and somehow held it together without cursing at us even once! And I’m pretty darn sure that they wanted to! They are even smiling in the photos! It is a Christmas miracle.  We are super glad that they are REALLY nice people who were willing to put up with us out in the cold all while continuing to somehow be super nice (not sure my own patience would’ve held out quite as long). But we are thrilled with the pictures, and we’re thrilled with Sarah and Paul’s awesomeness (and their gorgeous wedding!), and we’re thrilled that there were donkeys and horses, and we’re thrilled to be sharing them with you. :)

Callie // Bridal Portraits.

Callie and I shot these on what can only be described as a bajillion degree day of heat and humidity in central NC. I, however, was sweating much more than she was, as she seemed impervious to sweat. We also shot these inside the butterfly conservatory at the North Carolina Museum of Life and Science in Durham, which is known to add on additional layer of sweat lodge characteristics. Thankfully on this day, it happened to be cooler inside the butterfly house rather than outside, so it kept us from melting into small puddles while we were there. Callie’s hair and makeup held up beautifully and so did SHE! She’s a gorgeous, free-spirited type of lady who’s into her dog and her fiance Chris, who were married on August 11th (so now I can finally post these – yaaaay!). She also has the best biceps and triceps due to Crossfit. She told me she likes to “lift heavy things and then put them down and then lift them again.” Amen, sister. At Crossfit she also became friends with OUR amazing friend Sarah (whose wedding we shot and who designed our awesome bat logo!), so it’s a small world after all. I had an awesome time running around the Museum of Life and Science with her, her dad (who was included in the pictures because it was his birthday!), and the epic dinos. Later we hung out around Satellite Park for some more casual shots. Enjoy the post, and congrats to Callie and Chris!
