When I first met Kristen, it felt like we were longtime friends. She is as kind as they come, and everyone involved in Kristen and Stephen’s wedding proved to be the same. From being with the family in those anticipatory moments before the ceremony to watching the guests tear it up on the dance floor, I was surrounded by so much happiness.
Gather Together brought Kristen and Stephen’s vision to life at the incomparable Haw River Ballroom. The play in contrasts between rustic and industrial was a photographer’s dream. Thank you to all involved who made this day look stunning and run seamlessly. Here’s a peek, if you’d like to see.

Kasey and Drake are new to North Carolina, so we took advantage of some of the great southern settings this state has to offer. Meandering by a creek, frolicking through a field… our shoot was laid back and enjoyable. These two are getting married next year on Kasey’s parents’ anniversary, which I love. Such a sweet honor!
Kristen and Stephen tied the knot earlier this month, and I’m thrilled to share some of her bridal portraits taken at their wedding venue, The Haw River Ballroom. I love the traditional details of her gown next to the industrial character of the space–a little unexpected and so fun.
Kristen’s enthusiasm is contagious, and it’s been nothing but joyful to get to know her throughout this wedding process. Many congratulations to the stunning bride!
