Wedding {Ligia and Michael} Chetola Resort, Blowing Rock, NC (part 2)

So, last time we stopped after Ligia and Michael’s spring themed reception.  Their cocktail hour was a breezy summer-inspired affair on the dock overlooking the gorgeous lake at Chetola Resort.  Decor included sand, shells, and a gorgeous view.  Entertainment was provided by a steel drummer and lots of dancing.  For those without the rhythm to dance, a ping pong table with personalized ping pong balls was provided!  {Definitely a first for me, and I thought it was a super cool idea!  Also, the groomsmen and the groom took a little spin around the lake on the paddleboats–but for some reason, Michael decided he was going to swap paddleboats in the middle of the lake and nearly fell in!  Luckily, he got back to shore dry…

Nicole + James Wedding at Myrtle Beach!

Christi and I got to travel to Myrtle Beach for the weekend to shoot Nicole and James’ wedding. The ceremony was so picturesque, it was held right next to the beach! The reception was at the very top floor of the hotel overlooking the shore. It was a breathtaking view! The afternoon was filled with smiles, laughter, and dancing. I love it when the bride and groom look at each other, and you just feel how much they love each other. It’s so sweet!

Engaged! {Haley and Jonathon} NC wedding photographer

I first met Haley years and years ago, back when we were young { ;) } and waiting tables at a local restaurant.  So, of course I was super excited to get her call about her upcoming wedding this October!

Haley and Jonathon are super cute and adorable together, and you can tell they adore each other!  They also have 2 gorgeous dogs they rescued rounding out their family, and I’m glad they included them in their session.

I am SO looking forward to this wedding…. <3
