Caity and Kevin had the best weather ever for their December engagement session so I guess it only figures that it would come back and bite us later. Their wedding day was collllld and produced a constant rain that went kinda sideways under umbrellas so we didn’t go out in it much. Also, we were all freezing. But, because it was so cold, Caity decided to wear her badass colored leggings under her wedding dress on a whim which was highly encouraged by myself and all her bridesmaids because YES. She also occasionally busted out a pink leather jacket which was also praised and adored. And, because Caity and Kevin are very clever and thought ahead about things, the Rigmor House was decorated beautifully inside and allowed for plenty of colorful photo ops. Despite the dreariness outside, we were happy and colorful and warm INSIDE OUR HEARTS (and inside the Rigmor House). So much color, all the color, flag bunting forever and ever amen.

So a grand time was had by all – there was dancing and donuts and floral bridesmaid dresses and Rifle Paper Co. Keds that I’m currently ordering for myself and a dream team of vendors, some of which are friends and former clients of ours – and everyone had a wonderful time. Caity and Kevin didn’t let the rain get them down. They knew the most important thing about the day was each other, and that’s what makes a wedding run smoothly despite any sort of technical hitches you may run into. Also, it’s pretty brilliant to plan your wedding outside but to make sure that it’ll still look badass if you have to move it inside. Their use of color and whimsy in their decor was fantastic and made the interior quite happy. Everyone danced the night away, and the lucky ones among them stayed overnight at the Rigmor House, so they didn’t even need to leave (also brilliant to have your venue double as a hotel). We are so happy to have worked with these guys and wish them all the best in life and love and with their cat Haley who is really fluffy and cute.

This was a total breath of fresh air wedding! Lindsay and Zac, who were married at a new venue in Greensboro called Adam’s Place (a private property that’s been recently renovated to accommodate outdoor ceremonies and receptions), held a stunning wedding. What was so great was that they chose all bright, vibrant colors instead of a single color or two, and it just had such a happy feel about it. :) I met these two only very recently, but in the short time we’ve known each other it’s clear that they are amazing people with a wonderful group of supportive family and friends. We had a great time working with their wonderful bridesmaids and groomsmen as well! The ceremony was held outdoors and it was hot… and I mean hot. As in, both Geoff’s camera and my camera overheated during the ceremony (no, neither stopped taking pictures, thank goodness, but the red warning light was totally on and the LCD screen was blank for about five minutes). There were a few moments where I was prepared to black out. Maybe it’s because I’m from the north, as no one in the wedding party (even Lindsay with her heavy and gorgeous dress) broke a sweat. But the ceremony was beautiful and lead to an even more beautiful reception. Let me tell you – outdoor receptions in the evening in NC are just beyond beautiful (when the weather’s nice, of course). The lighting was perfect and they danced on the patio. It was super low stress and everyone was so nice. Lindsay and Zac took off at the end of the night and headed to Jamaica for their honeymoon. Enjoy their adorably detailed wedding!

Is this not the happiest looking wedding ever!? So happy. :) I love the inside of this tent!

Lindsay and Zac left at the end of the night to their guests throwing white petals out of these little rainbow tubes. :) A cute idea!

Digging the seer-sucker suits on these dudes. Nice to see something a little different. All the guys rocked the look.

A wedding dragonfly! Add it to the list of CSP wedding animals. ;)

The ring bearer is so. ridiculously. adorable. Look at that belt.

Another couple of golfers! They had tees (above) as some of their favors and brought along a golf ball for the ring shot. I apologize for the excessive amount of ring shots that follow, but it was a really good location for ring shots. ;) And you all know how I love them.

Lindsay is sooo stunning and gorgeous and all things beautiful. Love the hair, love the dress. Very different and pretty. :)

Thank you so much to Lindsay and Zac for having us and to their families for being extra supportive and awesome. :) We loved your wedding and hope you had a great time in Jamaica!
