{IT'S ABOUT TIME} love stories | Kristy & Sean

May 07, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
I can definitely say that I learned two things this last weekend. 1 : the summer heat is here EARLY.  I am pretty sure we all burned off more than just a couple cheeseburgers during this wedding. Normally this would have inspired me to get the biggest slice of cake I could find, BUT we were too busy out on the dance floor for cake on this one... 

2 : Ascots are possibly more awesome than ever. I know it's crazy but in all of the weddings we've shot I've NEVER seen a group of groomsmen wear Ascots. Truth be told I only new what they were from old Esquire and GQ articles that I somehow managed to absorb in airports here and there. (I can't fly without good magazines.)

It's been a few years since we've been out to Bell Gable, a charming little (tiny to be honest) chapel in Fayetteville.  Our weddings have outgrown the number of seats the chapel holds for the most part, BUT when Kristy and Sean decided they wanted to use the chapel as a backdrop to their vows we were pretty excited at the chance to shoot such a beautiful venue again.

Kristy and Sean ran into me at a wedding a few years back.  They weren't engaged yet, but poor Sean was already getting pressure from all of Kristy's girlfriends to get that ring bought.  Evidently long before I had the pleasure to know both of them they'd been well known for being "perfect" for each other. Sean - like any smart guy was patient with the ring. (side note, after knowing Sean a little better I think he found it kind of funny that Kristy was basically HANDED the bouquet at the wedding we met at)  Anyway, fast forward a few years and a few more friends weddings that we've all hung out at and here we are.

You'd be hard pressed to find a couple more comfortable around eachother. They spent their days mostly apart of course but from the time Sean walked up behind Kristy for the first look, until we hugged them both goodbye hours and hours later I'm not sure they were ever really apart.  The wedding was beautiful, full of tastefully simple details.  The nice part of having a wedding at Bell Gable is that there's simply very little to do that would even be noticed against the backdrop of the venue itself.  One of our favorite florists (http://www.julesdesignevents.com/) pulled together some beautiful floral work and the rest was really left up to Bell Gable.

Such a fun day with these two as they tied a long awaited knot - and the reception was the perfect period to the day. Simple, tasteful food, delicious (looking) cake, (I'm still bitter about that one), and plenty of dancing and fun with a huge group of friends and family.  Thanks and Congrats to Kristy and Sean! {miles}
