Wrightsville Manor is one of the most popular wedding venues in Wilmington, North Carolina. It’s so beautiful that even Lauren and Bond, who live in California, decided to book it from across the country without even seeing it in person! But I was happy to be able to let them know, as someone who has worked there many times, that they will not be disappointed in their decision. Turns out, it was PERFECT for their big day. Not only did these two choose an epic venue, but they also were just the most incredible people to be around. They are so fun, laid back, silly, I found myself laughing all day long and wishing it wasn’t time to leave when my time was up. The toasts (aka roasts) that their friends and family made were SO special, SO funny, my face literally hurt from laughing. Their guests couldn’t resist lifting them up in chairs on the dance floor, even their parents got a turn. From the gorgeous vintage yet modern details, to the soft color scheme, to the exposed wood tables, the disco balls hanging from the trees, the love and the dancing and the excitement, I’d call it a 14 out of 10. Lauren and Bond, y’all are stuck with me for life, now.

Oh! And they booked my 35mm film package, so scroll to the end to see my favorite film shots of the day, too!
