Airlie Gardens is hands down one of the most gorgeous locations in Wilmington, North Carolina. Every time I get to photograph there, I KNOW we’re going to get the most epic photos, and I get so excited. But even MORE excited when I get to work with a couple like Hayley and Zach. These two are so kind, gentle, welcoming, and just absolutely a pleasure to be around. The speeches that their parents and siblings made during the reception spoke volumes about who they are as people, and it was just wonderful to be a part of. The details and decor were SO PRETTY – there’s just something special about a wedding underneath a 100+ year old oak tree full of draping Spanish moss. The sun was shining, the birds were showing off for us, their guests were full of joy and of course, dancing. Forever grateful for these two, and I will be remembering this wedding day for a LONG time.
