She said several times that it didn’t feel real. And I remember that feeling so well too! Your wedding day is something you look forward to for a long time and even with his proposal, all the planning, the romancing and the excitement, it’s one of the most surreal feelings when your wedding day finally arrives.
Not only was Kristen super excited about the day and ready to see her man, but she had two of the most wonderful girls by her side the entire day. I had the most amazing pleasure of photographing her sister’s wedding several years ago so having Erica stand by her sister was so much fun for all of us! Plus, I always love photographing siblings’ weddings because I get to see old friends all over again!
Kristen and Adam, thank you for letting me capture your GORGEOUS wedding day for you! The weather was perfect, the details were beautiful, and y’all nailed your portraits. Just seeing your excitement in your photos brought lots of smiles to my face all over again! I hope you have an incredible time on your two week honeymoon. What an amazing way to celebrate your first Christmas together!
Kristen and her bridesmaids stayed at the brand new AC Hotel in Spartanburg the night before the wedding and got ready there the next day. It was such a beautiful space and it was the perfect spot to start the day!
As much as I love spring and summer weddings and all the beautiful flowers, winter weddings have a beautiful vibe all their own.
How classy are those gold pinecones in her bouquet??
Tiny TOMS get me every time I see them… I may have spent 20 minutes on their website after the wedding looking for some for my kids :-)
Kristen is one of the most organized people I have ever met. She planned her sister’s wedding and did an amazing job with her own!
Mercy… having two girls of my own made me tear up when Erica hugged Kristen like this!
My second shooter, Christy, caught this one of Adam seeing Kristen and I LOVE it!!
The navy and gold are so gorgeous!! And seriously… what a fun wedding party!
This is one of my favorite spots in downtown Spartanburg. Especially with these two and that lovely winter afternoon light!
They wanted to dance under the lights before being introduced as husband and wife…
