North Carolina Wedding At Chestnut Ridge

Markie_Walden_Wedding At Chesnut Ridge NC-67.jpg

This was a very special wedding! I know Courtney through mutual high school friends and also got to photograph her as a bridesmaid in another one of my couple's weddings. When she reached out about her wedding in Canton, NC, I was so humbled and so excited! It was so wonderful being around friends while doing what I love! 

Now about their wedding day, y'all, it was BEAUTIFUL. I have never been more thankful for cooler mountain air especially for a July wedding! Chestnut Ridge is also a little dream of a venue as well with my light style. 

Tony and Courtney kept me on the edge of tears (and sometimes in tears!) all day. Starting with the first look with her dad, I was done! Haha. You'll see the emotional reactions when you scroll down. Onto the first touch between Tony and Courtney with their giddy and sentimental emotions, of course accompanied with tears, was just so incredible to watch. My job, y'all, is amazing! Lastly, make sure to look for Tony's reaction when he finally sees his bride. MAJOR TEARS!

We had so much fun with the wedding party as well (since a couple of them I am friends with and one is a former bride of mine – shoutout! haha). Please take special notice of the guys doing their very own sorority pose too – I laughed so hard! 

From the fun dancing at the reception (yes, I joined in a couple times!) to the sparkler exit WITH fireworks (WOW!), it was an INCREDIBLE day. 

There was so much love on this day, felt by all who were in attendance. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Higgins!
