First Wedding - Set Up

Today, April 29th, 2012, I was asked to help Susan Marie set up for a wedding at Graylyn International Conference Center in Winston-Salem. The site was incredibly gorgeous! I was shocked at the beautiful grounds and upon entering estate, the beautifully refinished interior is full of old world charm. The couple is having an intimate wedding of thirty guests with their ceremony outside in the "white garden" and reception in the "dining room wing"



Below are photos that I snapped of the details and different tables that I was a part of helping set up before the wedding. Escort table, floral details, outdoor ceremony gazebo, fan details on chairs, and the adorable cake with their customized topper.

Styled Shoot

In March, I was able to be a part of a walk-through of the site we were going to photograph. Here are a few pictures of the sweet couple, Camden & Trent, that have been married for two and a half years. They didn't have any photos of just the two of them from their wedding day so, even though they were just "models", they were able to get some amazing photos together today and re-live their special day.

The cake that was rented for the photo shoot was from Cakes by Chloe

The photo below was taken in the basement of the Millennium Center, in front of an old holding cell, with a table, chair and left over champagne bottle from an event the previous night. We found the spot to be a great opportunity to stage a photo.

Hopefully I will be able to post the photographs that were taken throughout the day because these are no where near as great as the photos taken by professionals!
