I declare myself an anniversary shoot aficionado; I never get sick of them, so filled with love. With our crazy busy lives, we need these reminders to step back and reflect on the goodness before us. This couple did just that in honor of their one year wedding anniversary, at the photogenic Bald Head Island and Faith Teasley was there to capture the magic – fall in love with these cuties in our Vault right this way…

From Faith Teasley… Justine and Dan celebrated their first anniversary by having an adventure on Bald Head Island. Together, we rode a ferry and rented a golf cart to wander all around the island. From the Old Baldy Lighthouse to the marsh, to the ocean and Spanish moss trees… Bald Head Island is truly a magical place. Dan brought his violin to the beach to serenade his beautiful bride. Justine wore a gorgeous Hanbok dress to embrace tradition. The combination of winter light, songs by the sea, the salty air, and a couple madly in love made for one perfect anniversary session.

This is one of those beyond beautiful weddings. The sort of wedding that starts and ends with gorgeous details and is filled to the brim with moments that will make you smile. But beyond the lush blooms, breathtaking backdrop and stunning gown is the inspiring story of love, loss, hope and happiness… and family coming together to celebrate what marriage is really all about. See it all captured brilliantly by Julia Wade in THE VAULT.

From Julia Wade… I will never forget this day. It truly was the highlight of my 2015, so I’m really grateful to see it on the pages of SMP. My sweet bride Catherine had lost her mother Summer 2014 to cancer, and had a quiet wedding weeks before she passed. Their original wedding date of 5/2/15 affectionately became their “renup”. The bond between Catherine and Brooks was tangible and Bald Head Island shined for them. I will always cherish the photographs we made at the shoals at sunset.. something incredible happened with the light and the birds and between to the two of them. It was a gift to photograph..I am so grateful for clients that will let me in and truly tell their story. Enjoy.

Ben and Blair met at a pool party, but not in the way you’d expect! It turns out Blair’s then two-year-old son had a hand in making the introduction, and their sweet story is what makes this production by Light Cannon Films magical to watch. We were moved to tears by their letters to each other, cheering them on at their fairy tale chapel wedding, and can’t wait to share their happily ever after with you all!
From Light Cannon Films… As far as a wedding day is concerned, this one had it all. Rain, for good luck. Then a rainbow. A lighthouse, the natural beauty of Carolina’s islands, historic oaks… a stunning bride, an adoring groom. But best of all was the Morels’ story.
Ben is an ER doctor, and Blaire’s an ER nurse. They met at a pool party, but they were introduced by Blaire’s sweet son Eason, then only two years old. Ben and Eason had already become friends, playing in the water, when Ben asked (in some version), “By the way, where’s your Mom?” Blaire gets stars in her eyes when she talks about the friendship between her son and her (now) husband, how they are best friends and so alike.
Ben and Blaire’s admiration and friendship is only rivaled by their romance. They are the picture of love and watching them interact overwhelms us with joy that they have truly found the one their souls desired.
