This was an extra special wedding for us – Corey is my cousin, and our families have always been really close. We were honored to be able to photograph Brittney & Coreyâ€™s wedding in Hickory, North Carolina. It was also so much fun to be able to hang out with all of them!
Brittney always used to hide from my camera, but she tolerated my presence very well and even posed for a few pictures. : )Â They had gorgeous weather, a beautiful ceremony, and a fun reception. I had too many pictures for one blog post, so Iâ€™m splitting them into 2 posts. The reception pictures will be coming soon!
They have a precious daughter, Ava. It seems like just the other day that she was born; I canâ€™t believe how quickly sheâ€™s grown!
Coreyâ€™s sister found me an excellent spot to hang the dress:
The room the girls got ready in had some fabulous light coming in through the window:
This picture just cracks me up. Ava has the best expressions:
This is my cousin Mary Kate. Sheâ€™s not a big fan of being in front of the camera either; I told her she shouldnâ€™t sit in such nice light. How could I help myself?
The bridesmaids looked pretty snazzy:
Corey gave Brittney a bouquet of roses before the ceremony:
When Corey opened his suit bag, he discovered that the suit place hadnâ€™t included his shirt and tie. Oops.
A prayer with the parents (my fabulous Uncle Tim and Aunt Julie):
The shirt and tie arrive! With 10 minutes to spare.
I loved the hydrangeas. You donâ€™t see those much in weddings, which is too bad; theyâ€™re so pretty:
A prayer during the ceremony:
Iâ€™ll be posting the reception pictures soon so keep checking back! Good stuff ahead!
