After two forced reschedulings, Gina & Micah’s intimate Umstead wedding may not have been what they had originally envisioned, but it was beautiful in and of itself with all the pure love and sheer happiness on show. With the picturesque setting of the Umstead’s lawn with its pretty woodland lake as a backdrop, they exchanged vows surrounded by their nearest and dearest family and friends. Following the ceremony, we had a chance to take some relaxed portraits of the newlyweds around the lake in the gorgeous golden hour light. Gina & Micah even got to have a first dance all alone together in the sunset light. From there, we took some family photos before heading inside for dinner, a sing-song and a pretty impressive hora!

We took so many photos I really like, it was dead hard to narrow them down for this post. Here are just a few of my faves from a very special day with some truly lovely people!
