Mike & Johanna’s Wedding

Hi guys!! Last weekend I had the privilege of shooting Mike and Johanna’s wedding on May 5, 2012.  It was SUCH a beautiful day. They got married aboard the “N 2 Deep” yacht (Championship Yacht Charters) on Lake Norman, NC. We were picked up from Travis Pointe in Mooresville, NC which is an AMAZING venue in itself. That property is just incredible, and a great option if you are looking to get married in the LKN area. While I am based out of Washington, DC, I have a special attachment to LKN and love it more than any place in the world.

Let’s start with the dress and the details of the day. The colors of the wedding were Carolina blue and white. This combo is so gorgeous and one of my favorites!

Check out this amazing dress! I love how casual yet completely elegant and beautiful it was. Just wait til you see it on Johanna… wow!

I am obsessed with these GUESS shoes!

How adorable are these flower girl baskets?

These flowers are SO beautiful. The florist really knocked it out of the park. I also love the touch of the bedazzles in the bouquet and boutonniere and the carolina blue bow to tie the flowers to the theme.

Drum roll, please! Ceremony time! Here are a few highlights from the ceremony.

Everyone loves flower girls and ring bearers! These are some of the cutest I’ve seen!

Cue Johanna! Mike sees his bride for the first time. Aww! Always my favorite part!

What a radiant smile!

Adorable flower girl picking up petals during the ceremony.. hehehe…

You may kiss the bride!

I now present Johanna and Mike Bohn!

Meet the wedding party!

 Now it is time for our bride and groom to relax and enjoy some drinks together and for the reception to begin!

Meet DJ Bob! We have worked other weddings together so it was great to be reunited with another vendor! Always cool to see familiar faces.

Okay… I am going to give you fair warning to brace yourself for this next set. It is potentially the cutest thing ever to hit this earth. Flower girls eating strawberries and cupcakes. See if you can handle it…

Hahaha.. Oh man. I love those two.

Check out this killer sunset from the front of the boat!

A beautiful first dance!

Dancin’ machines!

Hahaha….

As I am writing this, I am laughing recalling this. This was definitely a fun bunch! And here are a few more dancing party people to top off the night.

And the clouds broke just enough for the Supermoon to light up the sky. An amazing end to an amazing night. Thanks so much to Mike and Johanna for letting me be a part of their special day. I really had a blast hanging with y’all! Best of luck to you both!

M.E. & Dave’s Wedding

Hey guys! Time for some wedding photos! Bring on the loveee!

This past weekend, I took a trip out to Little Switzerland, NC to shoot the wedding of M.E. & Dave. Their wedding was held at the  Switzerland Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Their ceremony overlooked the mountains which was completely amazing.. I am so happy to have been a part of this wedding, and for getting to work with such a super cool, laid back couple like M.E. and Dave.

M.E. is a vintage designer in LA which is totalllyyyyyyy rockstar.
Please give her site a visit if you want to drool over some awesome vintage eye candy:

or her blog: www.meandblueinla.blogspot.com

So, on to the goods! Off we goooooo…..!

Okay, well maybe I should start at the beginning.

To establish the setting, let me describe driving through the Blue Ridge Parkway when the leaves are changing for those who have never done it. I don’t know if anyone read a few posts back when I posted about visiting Todd, NC, but it was a very similar feeling. The leaves are magical. The colors are so vivid and beautiful.. there is nothing like it. Driving through the falling leaves, twisting and turning through these curvy roads.. Windows down, air crisp..

A perfect drive to arrive and meet M.E. & Dave in Little Switzerland.

I was only with this couple for two hours on Saturday, but they were such accepting sweet people, I feel like I got to know them quite a bit! I had a blast hanging out with them while the fam was getting their makeup done.. A very spicy bunch! Because they didn’t have a wedding party, M.E. spent the minutes before the wedding with her mother and sister in their adorable cottage in Little Switzerland. And then the time came!! Here is a cute shot of the three of them walking over to the arch for the ceremony. They were so happy.. =)

And then the ceremony. It was so sweet.. Very casual which you all know is what I’m all about.

This rose was placed in the archway during the ceremony in memory of Dave’s mother. Very touching…

Yayyy!! Look how happy he is!!! Isn’t that cute? Aw!

And finally… they wanted their jumping photo.. so they got their jumping photo! I told you they were spicy, hehe!

My personal favorites here are “Levitating Grandpa” and “Mom with Child”… You can’t go wrong!

Until next time, xx.
