It was such an honor to meet the Gantt family and photograph baby Cole’s first Christmas pictures!
Cole is such a sweet baby boy and he gave us lots of big smiles throughout the session, plus you’ve got to love those big blue eyes!
Nate and Ashley said their vows in a beautiful 19th century chapel surrounded by their closest friends and family.
With tears in her eyes Ashley promised to be his best friend and to be someone to watch Netflix and make midnight ice cream runs with him!
Nate and Ashley’s wedding took place in beautiful Tanglewood Park in Winston-Salem, NC.
From the chapel, to the Manor House where Ashley and her bridesmaids got ready, to the stunning gardens and stable, the park was the perfect venue for this sweet couple!
Ashley’s “something old” was a ring worn by all of the brides in Nate’s family!
Because Nate and Ashley’s ceremony would be over after dark, they decided to do a “First Look”.
A First Look is where the bride and groom set aside sometime to see each other and spend some quite time together before the ceremony.
First Looks are amazing because they help calm nerves before the ceremony. It allows a lot of extra time for pictures, and time and privacy for the couple. A wedding day usually has a lot going on and it isn’t unusual that the bride and groom barely even see each other! A first look allows a sweet. quite, intimate time to be together and just spend a few moments with each other!
