Whitney and William at The Light Horse Plantation, NC Wedding Photographer

June 27, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Brides often get a little panicked when storms are in the forecast on their wedding day, especially if an outdoor ceremony is involved. Whitney and Williams day dawned with the most amazing (and sometimes disturbing) cloud formations with patches of brilliant sun. Whitney never batted an eye. She was so calm and organized and unruffled. It was amazing. We hung out, we took our photos, we watched the skies. Jennifer with Knot Your Average Events and her team kept everything running smoothly and the call was made to move the wedding up. 

In an industry when it is not a-typical for weddings to start late, it is rare for one to go early, but it was pulled off beautifully. The ceremony was carried off with an amazing sky overhead and dark rumbling thunder across the field. We managed to grab some of the formal photos before the rain started to fall. The night went on with dancing and laughs, a few quick photos outside between rain showers. This couple made the most out of EVERYTHING including when a circuit was tripped and the ballroom lights/music were killed toward the end of the night. 

One of their friends launched into soaring opera and serenaded the couple by the light of our equipment and the wedding continued with hugs and beautiful voices and sing a longs that really made the ending all the more perfect. 

The vendor list was extensive but perfect for this wedding and the lighting provided by Ray Mietus with Steel Impressions was unbelievable. One of the prettiest ballrooms I've seen when it was all said and done. Make sure you scroll to the end to check out some dance shots with the lighting transformation!
