From our first meeting with David and Jerrika we knew there was definitely something special about these two! Their love for each other is so strongly evident when they are together!
Loved ones came from far and wide to celebrate David and Jerrika in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains that they love so much and where Jerrika calls home!
They say in North Carolina that rain on your wedding day is good luck and after David and Jerrika’s wedding day last Saturday, we believe this statement to be absolutely true!
There is something about being on top of a mountain that brings such a beautiful peace and new assurance to any situation! Perhaps it’s the fact you see the world below in a different perspective, but a mountain top definitely offers something different and unique! David and Jerrika were the essence of joy and peace as a huge storm front rolled in and didn’t clear up until 30 minutes before their outdoor ceremony was set to start.
This beautiful couple had given us a DREAM timeline to work with, however when the sky let loose exactly at the time we had scheduled their First Look, no one panicked and everyone just rolled with the weather!
When the skies started to clear about 30 minutes before the ceremony we gathered together to make a plan! Jerrika still really wanted to do the First Look, so she decided to delay her ceremony an hour so she and Dave would be able to spend these precious moments together. Can we just say again how much we LOVE First Looks! We were also able to photograph some of the wedding party shots as well while the ceremony chairs were being dried off.
So while we photographed David and Jerrika’s first moments together, their amazing wedding guests socialized and waited patiently in the lodge until the time of the ceremony. Their wedding guests were AMAZING! No one worried about the delay, everyone was just so thrilled to be there and to see the sun shinning again! Everyone was so willing to make David and Jerrika’s wedding day perfect for them!!!
One of our favorite moments of the wedding day was when Jerrika’s beautiful Mama walked her down the aisle. It was such a surreal moment as she hugged her daughter one last time before giving her away.
The sun shone bright as David and Jerrika said their vows. Everyone marveled at the gorgeous mountains, the stunning couple, and the sunlight that arrived just in time!
David and Jerrika, there are no words to describe how amazing you both are! We feel so honored to have been able to capture your special day!
