Oakland Farm Wedding | Emily + Mitchell | North Carolina Wedding Photographer

Updated: Jan 22, 2019

I'll never forget walking into the barn at Oakland Farm the morning of Emily + Mitchell's wedding! My jaw dropped when I saw the beautiful décor. Soft blue mixed with navy, greenery dancing on gold sequins and my FAVORITE part - the mixed-matched antique plates and silverware!

Emily envisioned her wedding being simple, yet elegant with a touch of rustic. Her favorite detail was her bouquets. Emily wanted something different so her florist took her colors and created a different bouquet for each bridesmaid. This turned out fabulous and photographed so beautifully.

Every time I'm around Emily + Mitchell I can see their love for each other radiating around them. They met in high school and were actually best friends! One of my favorite moments was the second Mitchell saw Emily coming down the aisle. She was radiant. You could really see the love in both of their eyes as they locked eyes from one end of the aisle to the other!

After some beautiful first dances, cake cutting , heartfelt speeches and a fun shoe game (which I would highly recommend!), everyone celebrated their grand-exit at dusk with the glimmer of sparklers!

Enjoy a few of my favorite selections from this day!
