Congratulations Coen and Jackie. You two were truly blessed with a beautiful wedding day full of laughter, tears of joy and warm hugs. xoxo to both of you!
(venue: starlight meadow burlington, nc)
I have been looking forward to this wedding for a while. Not only are Ashton and Ben an adorable couple, but they're very laid back, open, charming and overall FUN! I knew their wedding would be a blast. And (SCORE) it was at one of my fav venues---Hotel Concord---a vintage venue complete with checker board tile floors, loads of natural light and beautiful ceiling-scapes of chandeliers.
This is their wedding story!

Winding turns through a sea of pines and maples led Nicole and I to our destination on a mountain: Castle Ladyhawke; a former residence turned event venue in charming Tuckasegee NC. This venue is like no other. Not only is the drive up slightly nerve wracking (only a 40° incline); the views are breath taking and the castle itself a collection of beautiful medieval décor, cozy nooks, labyrinthine halls and staircases and luxurious furnishings. When I found Danae getting ready upstairs, I found a group of fairy tale maidens and their wee babes enjoying champagne, snacking and relishing in a beautiful vanity chamber adjacent to the honeymoon suite. Absolutely magical.
The title of this blogpost comes from something Mark said to Nicole. Minutes after the ceremony, she asked him; so has it sunk in yet? He just shook his head and smiled; then said "this is the best day of my life." *swoon*
Thank you Danae and Mark for choosing me as your wedding photographer, it was a beautiful afternoon and evening and I couldn't have asked for a more joyful group. Congratulations to you both! xo
