Derik and Cristen's beach house wedding in Topsail Beach, North Carolina is one for the books!Read More
Taylor and Ethan's wedding was the third in my very first three-wedding-in-three-days weekend. I was exhausted; I was beat down; I was jacked up on caffeine, but I knew I had a heck of a day waiting for me on a rooftop in my old stomping ground with one of my favorite families. Taylor is one of four daughters in a family that essentially counted my wife and me as their own when we first moved to Greensboro three years ago. Their lovingkindness and zest for life are an inspiration to us, and are one of the reasons why we still head back to visit that little non-denominational church in GSO every few months -- despite the fact that we've been gone longer than we were ever there. They're just so good at making us feel at home, that we belong.
So it was an honor and a privilege to share in this special day with the Starr family and Taylor and Ethan. It was standing room only at The Kress in downtown Greensboro, and the weather couldn't have been more beautiful. Taylor and Ethan, you have a tremendous group of individuals surrounding you, loving you, mentoring you, and lifting you up in prayer. Never take it for granted.
It's not every day that you meet a power couple, where both of them are tremendously talented, friendly, genuine people. But that's what you get with Daniel and Paige: an honest-to-goodness power couple. I was extremely flattered when Paige contacted me about shooting their big day (as she is already kicking butt with her photo/video company Fifth of June), and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with them both back in March.
Packed full of loving family, the best of friends, a surprise ballad from the groom, and combined with a beautiful venue, this mountain wedding was one of my favorites. But seriously, I'm finding more and more that awesome people make this gig sweet - killer locations are just icing on the cake. I wish the best for Daniel and Paige as they take on the world in Leesburg, VA. I know God has big things in store for them.
Wedding and Reception location: The Old Edwards Inn
