Romantic Garden Wedding

A quiet garden setting was the perfect place for Jessica and Travis' wedding on October 2, 2011. They were married at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, NC. It was one of those beautiful, autumn afternoons before the leaves have turned and it couldn't have been more lovely. As the sun was setting, Jessica and Travis said their vows and held each others hands. The warmth and love of their family embraced them throughout the day and this quiet garden setting exploded into a place of laughter and fun during the family picture taking. This wedding was very romantic and I was so excited to share some of my favorites from the day.

Don't Worry Be Happy

Don't let the watch fool you! Its actually an hour behind! That is why I fell in love with this laid back couple. From the start, Crystal and Brian had a simple, care free attitude toward their wedding and the planning of it. I didn't even talk with them til the week of the wedding when I emailed for an itinerary. Crystal told me they didn't really have one and that they were just gonna sorta wing it! You gotta know I don't hear that every day! But that day, everything went off without a hitch and it was beautiful! In the end, this was one of the most fun weddings of our year and one I won't soon forget!
