Antioch Baptist Church Wedding | Leslie + Patrick | North Carolina Wedding Photographer

Updated: Jan 22, 2019

I have known Leslie for a few years now through a our mutual friend, Lauren! Leslie has the kindest heart and such a sweet personality! When you're around Leslie and Patrick, you can truly tell they arr soulmates. They also got married on their seven year anniversary! How awesome is that?!

I drove up to the church and instantly fell in love! Beautiful, quaint white churches with stained glass will always have my heart. The girls were inside getting hair and makeup done and having a blast together. Leslie and Patrick chose to do a first look so I went to go set Patrick up by a tree at the church. Leslie walked up to him beaming with happiness and beauty! Patrick turned around with the biggest smile on his face as he saw her. These moments are so raw and precious and I love getting to document them!

The ceremony was so sweet!! Leslie had tears rolling as her dad walked her down the aisle. Y'all, Leslie and Patrick performed a song together! Yes, Leslie sung to him while he played guitar! I've heard Leslie sing before but this was truly amazing and she sounded like an angel. They performed "I Choose You". I was sitting in the middle of the aisle bawling my eyes out! This was a first for my photography career and I feel so blessed to be there and experience that moment.

Home is so special to Leslie so it was the perfect place to host the reception! It was all decorated with shades of pink and blue, lanterns and tons of flowers! One of my favorite reception details was the cutest photo booth hanging from a tree that looked like a Polaroid photo with their names written on the bottom! The two shared their first dance with each other as husband and wife to Diamonds and Twine and then Leslie shared a dance with her dad. They cut the cake, tossed the bouquet and garter and ended the night with a sparkler exit! It was such a beautiful day. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Paschal!
