Brighter than the Sun: Ginny & David

“Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun” ~ Colbie Caillat

Looking at this beautiful wedding again just makes our hearts full and brings a smile to our faces. David and Ginny had the most beautiful southern wedding along the banks of the Cape Fear River, and seeing their love for each other and the joy that marriage brings to their lives makes us so happy for them too. Along the way since we first met them last fall, they’ve become great friends, fellow photography enthusiasts, and just generally fun people to be around.

Considering the shaky weather we were having in April (we had severe thunderstorms come through the night before their wedding) the day couldn’t have turned out more beautiful. Sunny and blue Carolina skies, the perfect temperature, and this lovely couple were all the perfect combination.

These beautiful bouquets were handmade by Ginny and her bridesmaids that very morning! Ginny’s had an embroidered burlap wrap with her and David’s initials. Such a sweet detail.

The sweet photo of Ginny with her mom before the ceremony …

Ginny and David had a sweet first look along the river before the ceremony started. Since they opted to do all of their portraits, bridal party, and family pictures before the ceremony started, it greatly increased their opportunities for amazing portraits and having a much more relaxed timeline later.
