Where do I even begin to describe the epic-ness that was Sara & Morrell’s wedding day? I had the pleasure of photographing this special day at the gorgeous Warehouse on Water, in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. I love this venue for its big brick walls and old warehouse vibes, along with the proximity to the Riverwalk (one of the best sunset views in town!) and all kinds of beautiful areas for photos! But what makes this venue even better? When it’s filled with friends and family surrounding a couple who just absolutely could not wait to marry each other. Now, when I say the excitement could be felt from multiple blocks over, I am serious. When I started walking to the venue with the girls from their getting ready space, I could feel the energy from these ladies, walking together, blasting music, singing about how Sara was on her way to get MARRIED! And then, I kid you not, every single bridal party member (and the GROOM!) even DANCED down the aisle for the ceremony. I’ve been photographing weddings since 2010, and honestly, this was a first. I was nearly crying from laughing so hard, watching this group have the MOST fun, supporting their best friends. The day was perfect, the weather was perfect, Sara and Morrell were perfect. Beautiful decor, an even more beautiful couple, and an AMAZING dance party to end the night. Another one of my favorite moments was their private last dance, you can just tell how excited they were that they had finally DONE IT! They’re MARRIED!!!! After their last dance, we headed outside for a bubble exit – but not just any bubble exit. They rented a bubble machine (shout out Atlantic Premier Entertainment) where the bubbles were filled with smoke inside, so when they popped, it created this fog effect, and I think these are some of the most magical exit photos EVER!!!! Congrats to these two absolutely wonderful and deserving people, I’m so excited to see the rest of your story unfold together <3
