Saxapahaw is one of the cutest little towns we’ve ever seen. It almost reminds me of a remote mountain village, except it’s not in the mountains. It’s on the outskirts of Chapel Hill. The river running through the center of the town combined with the tree covered hills, and the winding roads makes it seems like it’s smack dab in the middle of the mountains. We’ve been there twice, both times for a Haw River Ballroom wedding, but we’ve left each visit wanting more of it’s quaintness.
When Lizzy & Garrett contacted us about photographing their Haw River Ballroom wedding, we couldn’t say yes quickly enough. Weddings there are always so unique, and you never quite know what to you’re going to get. Our last wedding there was full of nostalgia and pretty fall blooms, and this one was full of personality and bright colors!
I loved the bride’s choice in gown, flower crowns, bright blooms, textured groomsmen ties, eclectic bridesmaids dresses, and sequin runner for the head table. Kast Events & Eclectic Sage did such a good job making everything bubbly and full of life, and let’s not forget stunning! Looking back over these details my photographer’s heart starts to flutter! So much pretty! But what gets it beating even faster are the moments between this couple. The quiet ones full of intensity and romanticism that steal your breath. These two have a beautiful connection that was easy to capture with my camera.
Lizzy & Garrett, we’re so thankful you chose us. We can’t thank you enough for entrusting us with these special memories. We loved spending the day with you two, celebrating your commitment, and meeting your friends and family. We mean this sincerely: thank you for everything and congratulations. We hope the rest of your marriage is a full of love & life as your wedding day!
