June 17, 2017 Wedding at Yesterday Spaces in Leicester, NC
After months of planning, our day started with a phone call from the coordinator, Michelle, asking about Cassady's thoughts on moving the ceremony from their carefully chosen outdoor spot to the more rustic dairy barn as clouds of doom rolled in. Rather than get upset, Cassady quickly decided to activate the contingency plans and move on, only stopping (without actually missing a beat) to joke that she was in Mexico relaxing instead of getting ready for the wedding when Michelle asked how things were going.
This little moment describes the whole day: laid-back, fun and totally about a couple's love for each other and their friends and family. While the venue was gorgeous, the food was delicious and the party was raucous; ultimately, the focus of the day was celebrating two people who chose to commit their lives to each other.
I love getting to work with fun couples like this who simply want me to capture the moments so they can perpetually enjoy them. And when there are those pesky wedding details that need to be taken care of (like decorations, favors and food) they choose things that are personal to them as a couple. Although, to be honest, this was not my first wedding with a taco bar! I'm so grateful I got to be a part of Cassady and Ross's festivities and can't wait to share more photos!
