A quick post and run today as I am writing this from my hometown of Weston-super-Mare as I visit my family over in southwest England.
Reaves and Zach, childhood sweethearts from Dunn, NC, celebrated their love in a gorgeous wedding that embraced their roots. We captured every enchanting moment, from an emotional first look to a charming reception on the groom’s family farm. Let’s dive into the highlights of their special day!
Born just four days apart, Reaves and Zach’s love story began in their early years, and they say they have simply just always been together. So it was great to see them, surrounded by their loved ones, as they exchanged vows in their hometown church. Before the ceremony, they had an intimate and emotional first look where heir love for each other was so evident to see.
After the ceremony, we headed to the groom’s family farm where a marquee tent transformed the open country landscape into an enchanting reception venue. As the sun began to set, casting a warm glow over the land, Reaves and Zach stole away for a romantic photo shoot before heading into the reception for their first dance. After which Reaves changed her dress and we headed out for more photos! We were spoilt for choice with the potential spots for photo opportunities so we maximised our time together as much as possible! You’ll see plenty of portraits belo!
No wedding is complete without a lively dance floor, and Reaves and Zach’s reception was a blast! The talented band, Sleeping Booty, pretty much killed it and it was a lot of fun photographing everyone dancing to their classic tunes.
Reaves & Zach are a truly lovely couple and it was an honour to photograph their wedding for them. Here are just a few of my picks of the pics…
