A Love Celebration: Eric & BethAnne

“Power belongs to you, God, and with you, Lord, is unfailing love” ~ Ps. 62:12

From one of Eric & BethAnne’s favorite scripture passages comes a promise of unfailing love. Their entire wedding day was a celebration of their love of the Lord and each other, and what a beautiful day it was. A pleasant drive through the North Carolina countryside took us to The Barn at Valhalla, where the happy couple was eagerly waiting to unite their lives together. Everything about their day incorporated what they both love, from the music, to the tiny cupcakes, to all of the faith-based influences in the small details that were lovingly crafted.

Eric & BethAnne chose to have a First Look, which we personally love. It’s such a special time for the couple to see each other and spend precious alone time together before the ceremony, and frees up their schedule for the rest of the day to relax and enjoy their celebration. :)

Isn’t this the sweetest moment? We love BethAnne’s reaction to Eric seeing her for the first time as his bride.

In lieu of a guestbook, guests could highlight a favorite verse in the Bible, and put their name and a note for the couple beside it. Additionally, they could also sign and leave a sweet note on a matted photograph from Eric and BethAnne’s engagement session. Discs filled with their favorite songs made for personal favors for guests to take home.
