October is our favorite time of year, and we were so happy to spend it with some super awesome people on a gorgeous day in Chapel Hill. Plus, wedding food is very important, and weddings that contain GF garlic cream bacon pizza AND bourbon coffee ice cream are at the top of my list. But as if it couldn’t get any better, this wedding venue also had a very cute goat, as well as a barn cat that I befriended and took a selfie with. Boom! A good work day indeed. Christina and David were so excited and made the best of every moment. They also have a great group of extremely supportive friends who all pulled together to make this day happen smoothly. It had basically monsooned the day before (which is better than the day of), and their friends laid down hay in the tent and did a ton of work to make this wedding as dry and comfortable as possible, so mad props to the wedding party and friends for their hard work at the venue! The weather was a little chilly, but everyone was comfortable in their heated tent and around their bonfire in the yard. Cafe lights added a bit of a magical touch, and it was a perfect fall wedding. We were happy to be there and spend the day with these two lovely individuals.

Edy and Andy have been such great supporters of us ever since they booked us, and I feel like they’re our constant cheerleaders. It’s so wonderful when you feel like clients get you! And when they’re comfortable with you, you’re comfortable with them, and all’s right with the world. We’ve had a great time working with not only them, but their adorable son Louie, who loves dinosaurs even more than me and also enjoys bossing people around about as much as I do. We first met Louie at Edy and Andy’s engagement session last year with their superfluff of a doggo named Nacho. We were happy to reunite with Louie and his armada of plastic dinosaurs at their wedding, and to see Edy and Andy again!

This wedding had one of the best floral altars I’ve ever seen, a vivacious bride and groom who are so supportive and caring for one another, and a band called the Harmonica Lewinskies. I daresay that I’ve never heard of a band with such a great name, and I don’t expect I’ll ever find a better one. They were formed by one of Edy and Andy’s close friends who passed away a few years ago, and they’ve since kept in touch with his bandmates who were there to support them as they got married. So not only do they have the best name, but they also have a personal connection to the couple, and everyone felt like family. Edy and Andy were married at the edge of the forest in some of the most beautiful afternoon lighting on a gorgeous day! There was thunder, but no rain, and it was all quite perfect. They danced the night away in the barn with all their family and friends. We’re so happy to have had such a loving and joyful couple as our clients. Congrats, Edy+Andy!
