Everything about this wedding was an absolute JOY. Yes, laughter and hugs are a part of all weddings. . . but at this wedding they were guests of honor. Getting to know SueAnn and Jeff, it's easy to see why. They clearly lead with their hearts and know how to love, and be loved, by their community. And they immediately passed this on to me. SueAnn even texted me to say, "I can't tell you how many of our family members have been telling us how much they love you." The feeling was entirely mutual! I don't know that I have ever been welcomed so openly by an entire community of family and friends, most of whom I had never met before. Not only that, but they had me in tears from laughing so hard! Cheers to knowing how to love and laugh! If y'all approach your marriage the way you approached your wedding, you will be golden.
So many fabulous vendors worked hard to make this wedding shine!

These first few photos were taken at the soon to be venue, Twisty Maple, in Fletcher, NC, where Michelle was kind enough to organize a bridal shoot. It was a delight to work with her, and frolic around the newly sprouting land with SueAnn, in her elven glory.
