It is always such an honor to be be included in this A-List Wilmington wedding show. Courtyards & Cobblestones is a unique wedding show, in that it features eight fully styled venues and a hand-picked collection of the most innovative, creative wedding professionals from Southeastern North Carolina. Each venue has one photographer, one videographer, one catering company, one floral designer etc. This year, our team was stacked with amazing talent and the design that was executed was breathtaking. From the Lily of the Valley bouquet to the compass seat assignments to the lobster mac n cheese- every last detail in this Sail Away With Me themed ‘wedding’ was perfect. If you are looking for wedding inspiration, or just love beautiful wedding design, this blog post is full of details. Special thanks to our beautiful models (and newlyweds) Mallory and Stewart!! All vendors that helped make this day amazing are at the bottom of this post!

This Airlie Gardens wedding was perfection. Carly and Dillon were so much fun to work with all the way from their hot air balloon engagement session (here!) to this gorgeous southern garden wedding day. Airlie Gardens is one of Wilmington’s best wedding venues if you are looking for the quintessential southern wedding, and with the help of Social Butterfly Events for design and coordination, this couple did it right! Congratulations Carly and Dillon- Your day was a perfect example of why I love photographing weddings in Airlie Gardens!

Tucked away in the back of Airlie Gardens is the Lebanon Chapel, one of the most picturesque spots for a Wilmington wedding. Jacqueline and Joey’s wedding was perfect right down to the last detail, thanks to Fiore Fine Flowers, who brought the couples ideas to reality. But even better than the beautiful design of this wedding day was their sincere and intentional love for one another. It’s one of the things I loved about them right from our first meeting. I wish them all the best- and hope for many, many amazing years together!
Peyton and Ryan held their Wilmington wedding at the beautiful Wrightsville Manor. The soft, neutral colors of the manor make any color scheme look great, and Peyton along with Melissa Burton of Knot Too Shabby Events put together a show-stopper of a gorgeous day. The beige, white, ivory, peach and mahogany palate was the perfect compliment to the classic and clean design of the wedding. Peyton and Ryan, it was an absolute honor to be a part of your wedding day and we wish you all the best!

There are so many beautiful places in Wilmington to shoot engagement sessions.. One of my favorites has to be Fort Fisher, just south of Kure Beach. This is where Joey proposed to Jacquelyn- so it was only fitting that we went there to shoot their gorgeous engagement session.
Leslie met with Allie and Justin in Topsail NC for this awesome engagement session. The sunset was incredible and Leslie captured it and this great couple perfectly!
