NC Wedding - Stephanie and Scottie

Scottie looks relaxed doesn't he? I'll tell you a little secret.
This photo was taken after the wedding ceremony.
Now, we'll go back to the beginning...
Waiting for the bride and groom.
Love the blue and orange colors.

Turned out beautifully.
Stephanie and Scottie had fun with my props.
Rings, a symbol of promises made.
Private (almost) First Dance.
Wonderful wedding day.

Tom and Mary Jane - Fall wedding at RiverMist

Tom and Mary Jane wanted to get married outside but was a little concerned about a November wedding. As it turned out the weather was absolutely perfect for their fall wedding.
I watched from the deck as the guests arrived. Several people had traveled from Florida for this special day.
Walking to the covered bridge.
I think everyone had a camera.
"Mary Jane and Tom, you have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment. At some point, you decided to marry. From that moment of yes to this moment of yes, indeed, you have been making promises and agreements in an informal way....."
From "Union by Robert Fulghum
 What a special ring bearer. Notice the bouquet.
 How nice to include canine family.
Beautiful engagement ring.
And the happy family.
Lovely Bride.
And a guest insisted on this photo.
So nice to be surrounded by people who love you.
What a great start for a marriage.

Benediction of the Apaches 
Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no more loneliness for you.
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two bodies,
But there is only one Life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place,
To enter into the days of your togetherness.
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.

In just a few minutes, husband and wife.

First Dance. Dreams do come true!
 Smiles, smiles and more smiles.
Carrying his bride across the theshold, a time honored tradition.
Time for cake.
And a first toast. 
We took a few more photos then left the newlyweds alone to celebrate.

Outdoor wedding in North Carolina

It doesn't matter what month, 
it doesn't matter what season, 
most couples want to get married outside. 
And no wonder, each has it's own beauty.
Elaine and Shane were no exception. What a great day for a fall wedding.
I am so honored they chose RiverMist to be part of their wedding celebration.
Every couple is unique and each wedding is special.
I love Elaine's headpiece. And perfect with her wedding dress.
The ceremony took place on the covered bridge.
After the rings were placed it was time to...
 And take photos. Lots and lots of photos.
The beginning of forever.
