A few weekends ago, I flew to Raleigh, NC for the wedding of my sweet friends, Madison and Andrew. I was so thankful to fly in a day early, so I could go to the bridal luncheon and rehearsal dinner while having a mini-reunion with some of my best Liberty friends! Not only was it such a great weekend with friends, but I LOVED being a part of Madison and Andrew’s wedding. I can remember MANY instances during our time at LU that Madison and I shared meals and stories that made us wonder if we would even find our future husbands. Well, waiting on God’s timing is definitely the way to go, as evidenced by the great love that Madison and Andrew share for the Lord and each other.
As we drove to the church on their wedding day, there were a few dark clouds overhead, but the weather forecast promised only a slight chance of rain. The weather man was quickly proved very wrong when it started pouring on our way to their first look, but Madison’s excitement could not be shaken. She just kept saying, “I can’t wait to see Andrew!” over and over. So precious! They were such great sports about the rain, and we made it work, thanks to a great covered porch! I guess I should just let you see for yourself… Check out my favorites!
I always love a TOMS bride.
Madison collects hand-painted tea cups, and her mom gave her this one at her bridal luncheon. I just HAD to use it for detail shots!
This might be the best gift I’ve ever seen given by a bride to her groom. Over 5 years ago, Madison started writing letters to her future husband. On their wedding day, Madison gave Andrew a book full of all the letters she had written to him over the years… Such a beautiful gift.
Love this… So Madison.
Andrew is just a LITTLE bit of a Duke fan… He even proposed to Madison at a Duke game last fall!
Seriously, I have NEVER seen a bride so excited to see her groom. Madison must have asked me at least 10 times if she could see Andrew yet. I might have had to tell her to calm down a bit. :) I just love the look of excitement on her face.
Madison’s gift to Andrew might have been my favorite, but Andrew hit a home run too! What girl doesn’t want a diamond necklace to wear on her wedding day?!
In case you’re wondering, yes, I was crying.
Y’all are so adorable.
This is a new favorite bridal portrait of mine… So elegant and classic!
Andrew, you did a great job on that necklace!
I just love them!
Haha. They are awesome!
Here are some perks of shooting a wedding full of friends…
We’re special. :)
Congratulations, Mads & Andrew! :)
Happy 4th of July!!!!
