“My husband and I stumbled across Shelley’s work on our wedding venue’s Facebook page and immediately fell in love! We booked them almost a year in advance because we just knew we had to have them as our wedding photographers and we are so glad we did! Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning. They captured a wide range of photos from our wedding day. There are plenty of amazing intimate photos of us as a couple as well as all of our guests having a good time on the dance floor and everything in between. On top of the amazing photos, it was so fun having Shelley and her assistant at the wedding! They made everyone feel so comfortable about being photographed and were not intrusive at all. We would enjoy looking at our wedding pictures even if we weren’t the subjects because they really are works of art.”

– Hannah and Matt

Starlight Meadows, Burlington, NC

Hannah and Matt held their spring wedding at Starlight Meadows, one of my favorite wedding venues in Burlington, North Carolina. It was the most beautiful day outside- with sunshine, fluffy white clouds, and a beautiful sunset. My friend Savannah Ashley joined me to second shoot this wedding as well and we had a blast. A few of her images are sprinkled into this post as well.

One of my favorite things to do at weddings is listen to the ceremony message and speeches. I love hearing the memories and the intensions that couples have in entering their marriage. Listening to the speeches at Hannah and Matt’s wedding, I learned that these two actually had known each other for quite a while. Their friend group all knew that they were perfect for each other, and eventually Hannah and Matt realized that as well. They really are two peas in a pod. Absolute sweethearts.

Hannah and Matt’s wedding had all kinds of thoughtful touches. There were daisies adorning their cake that matched Hannah’s crown, beautiful mismatched glass vases on the tables, and homemade maccaroons made by the bride herself (taste tested by Matt of course). The barn at Starlight Meadows allowed the evening breeze to blow through as everyone danced. It was an absolutely beautiful celebration. So happy for you two Hannah and Matt! I’m excited for what life has in store for you both as you start this new journey together. 🙂
