Erin+Bret Wedding

I am so thrilled and honored to share all of the details from Erin and Bret's wedding day this past April in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Erin and Bret tied the knot on Saturday, April 22nd at the 1870 Farm on a sunny and ever-so-perfect North Carolina spring day- in fact, it just so happened to be Earth Day! But before I continue, I have to be honest and say, that this wedding holds a VERY special place in my heart. I've had the honor of knowing Erin and Bret since high school! I remember when they first started dating when I was a Senior in AP English with Bret and Ceramics with Erin. I have loved seeing their relationship grow and evolve into the force that it is today.

All of the details that Erin and Bret chose to include were meaningful and intentional, and it certainly showed! Throughout the day, I kept saying to myself, "This day fits Erin and Bret so perfectly!" Every detail that they included, encompassed their story, personalities and love perfectly. After an emotional first look and a quick rain shower, Erin and Bret were married in front of an intimate group under an old deeply rooted tree. It was one of the most beautiful and loving ceremonies that I have witnessed as a wedding photographer. Tears fell as Erin walked down the aisle, and again when the two read their personally crafted vows in front of their closest family and friends. 

After the Erin and Bret officially sealed the deal, they were greeted by additional guests to enjoy a delicious meal from the popular food truck, the Wandering Moose! The newlyweds danced the night away under the stars in Chapel Hill and were sent off by a sparkler exit at the end of the night. 

I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity to work with Erin and Bret through out this journey. Erin and Bret, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your special day! I can't wait to see you two again very soon!
