They met at their church’s college group and it was only three months later that Colleen knew that Dave was “the one.” For Dave, it was two years later–when he realized that he wanted to spend “forever” with this cheerful brunette who could light up a room! Shot by Laura Hernandez Photography, their love story continues…

Here they are at Santa Cruz Beach for a charming engagement session that’s off the beaten path. Enjoy!

Cheerful Spring Wedding In Yellow and Gray

Categories Real Weddings

Julie and James’s had an outdoor spring wedding at The Borden House in Raleigh, NC. Captured by Amy Allen Photography, and with tulips and greenery all around, their outdoor wedding was full of sweet sophistication! We love the billy ball boutonnieres and that there was a lady groomsman and that all of the ladies wore yellow cardigans. We also love the simplicity of this southern wedding and how Julie carried the pretty lace details of her dress to their wedding cake. The fun everyone had is obvious–and the outdoor checkered dance floor seemed to beckon the wedding guests all night long! Enjoy!
