Courtney + Brandon | Burgaw, North Carolina

What better way to share a wedding sneak peek than on Courtney and Brandon’s one week wedding anniversary!

Courtney and Brandon’s wedding day started off with rain which we all know that means GOOD LUCK. I headed to the cutest Airbnb in Burgaw, NC where Courtney and her girls were getting ready. I started photographing Courtney and Brandon’s flat lays. Courtney’s sparkly purple converse were popping off in her detail shots and they matched her bridal bouquet perfectly!

We headed to the venue to finish the getting ready photos. One of the moments Courtney wanted to capture was Brandon’s daughter, Payton, in Courtney’s wedding dress. It was such a sweet moment to see the reactions of the bridesmaids and Brandon’s Mom, see Payton in the dress. The smile on Payton’s face said it ALL. Payton told us she loved wearing Courtney wedding dress. I know that will be a moment Payton will remember forever.

One of the things I love in a wedding day is where the bride and groom write a letter to one another. I am a words of affirmation girly- so I love photographing the moment when the couples read each other’s words in private. I love that Courtney and Brandon added this into their day.

During the ceremony, Courtney had another little surprise for Brandon. As Courtney walked into the venue, her vows to Brandon filled the air, she did a voiceover of her vows as she walked down the isle to meet Brandon. The rest of the ceremony was filled with good laughs and heartfelt moments.

Thankfully it was an overcast for the rest of the day! We got to do the rest of the photos outside-YAY! One of the things I loved was the COWS in the distant. I wish they were closer but I’ll take it :D!

The reception was kicked off by the little kids dancing and showing off some impressive dance moves! Then the light props were brought out and you know when that happens the dance floor starts really showing off!

Thank you Courtney and Brandon for allowing me to be apart of your wedding day and photograph it! Thank you to all the amazing vendors that made Courtney and Brandon’s day extra special!
