My first wedding of 2013. Where in the world did the beginning of the year go?! Everyone, meet Amanda & Wes. These two were a joy to photograph together. So many smiles all day long. : )
Amanda & Wes’s gorgeous winter wedding was held at the beautiful WinMock at Kinderton in Bermuda Run, North Carolina. I thought it was so neat that they had the ceremony set up in a circle. Family and friends were positioned all around them and it felt much more intimate, especially because the guests held lighted candles. I also loved that they included their adorable pup, Brooks, in the photos and the ceremony. And oh my goodness… the band. Rubberband was awesome! I don’t think ANYBODY wanted to leave this rockin’ reception! Congrats, you two. Many happy years together! : )

I loved that their dog stayed at Amanda’s feet while she was getting ready. So sweet.
Amanda’s hair was so glamorous!
Stunning. : )
So cute: on his shoes were “She’s” and “Mine.”
Eeeee! LOVE THESE!
First look – so sweet!
LOVED the gold vases!
Wes & Amanda’s close friends got up during the ceremony to read something personal they each had written. This was so touching!
In lieu of the traditional wedding party shot, they opted for a fun photo op with close friends. LOVE!
The couple got engaged in Napa.
Such a stunning barn. Right?
I had some stiff competition during the cake cutting, but it’s okay, because they fed each other multiple times. ; )
Wes’s Dad = awesome.
Amanda’s dad = amazing.
This couple was so adorable. Sneaking kisses in the corner…
I don’t think I’ve ever seen FOUR people catch the bouquet!
Wes’s brother and girlfriend = SWEET dance moves!
I LOVE this photo.
