Michael and I have never photographed a “vineyard” wedding before this one. We have always been jealous of the vineyard weddings out in California that we see from other favorite photographers. Emily and Matt gave us that chance with their wedding at the lovely Childress Vineyard in Lexington, NC. We adored this vineyard and it’s charm.
The vineyard also allowed for a different perspective during the ceremony. Emily walked down a stair case in front of her guests and groom instead of from behind and down an aisle. It was a very special moment as we all gazed at her loveliness and smiles as she walked toward her groom.
The Ceremony was especially special to me. The minister Tom Trooger shared a great story from the heart and it really hit home. I love it when there is a lot of wedding sentiment!
Emily and Matt met at college 6 years ago. Since then Emily has become a pediatric nurse and Matt has been attending UNC Asheville. They both love martial arts and I love how they incorporated this into their wedding day by having their guests sign their GI instead of a guest book. Touches like this make weddings unique to each bride and groom.
We are so grateful to know this couple and that they allowed us to share in their day!
I love this moment with Dad.
First look with Grandma too. How beautiful is this moment?!?!
Shout out to these professionals that helped make this day spectacular!
