Sunday, we experienced that wonderful feeling where you know you’re in the right place with the right people. Laura & Jordan were created for one another. You could tell even before they saw each other down the aisle. The raw emotions and respect for one another was unique and heart-warming. To make the day even better, the venue, Laboratory Mill, was incredible and the florist, Twigs & Twine Floral Design, did an amazing job!
Laura’s dress from Concord Wedding Center was perfect. It fit her to a tee! And her blue hydrangea bouquet just put her look over the top.
Jordan anxiously awaited seeing his bride, holding back tears of joy and looking handsome in his grey tux.
Did we mention how awesome this venue is? All the textures and details are like a field day for a photographer!
Twigs & Twine Floral Design created this GORGEOUS curly willow arch for the ceremony area. And they were a pleasure to work with!
Laura had ten beautiful ladies by her side as she said “I do” including sisters, cousins, childhood friends and a neice.
This group of handsome fellas prove that law enforcement have a softer, funny side because they kept Jordan calm and laughing as the ceremony time approached.
Laura had a “first look” with her dad and brother. It was so sweet to see their reactions when they saw their little sister and baby girl dressed in all white.
Then it was time for the ceremony… Brody toted a “Here comes the Love of your Life” sign before Laura and Scott came down the aisle.
These two were so adorable – laughing and tearing up – as Stephen officiated the ceremony. They also added in a part of the ceremony where they look at each other’s hands as Stephen talked about these being the hands of their best friend, the one that will wipe your tears of sorrow and tears of joy, a tender touch you when you need to be loved and hands that will wrinkle and age but still reach out for yours as time passes. SO SWEET! (No, Karen doesn’t cry during ceremonies but Jess does. Luckily, she was at the back of the ceremony!)
After the ceremony, we were able to run around the property of the Mill and get some amazing images of the newlyweds and their wedding party!
The reception was so pretty with pops of blue on the tables along with candles and lanterns from Twigs & Twine Floral Design.
Hog Wild catered a chicken & BBQ dinner. It was so delicious!
The cake, adorned with blue hydrangea and baby’s breath, was beautiful and YUMMY! My Local Bakery in Morganton, NC, did a great job!
The party started with the Cupid Shuffle and continued in the IP photobooth!
Mr. & Mrs. Byland exited at sunset through a parade of sparklers! A perfect ending to a perfect day!!
Congratulations to Laura & Jordan! We were honored to be a part of your special day. It was hard to narrow down to these few images, so we’re counting down to sharing all of them with you in a few weeks!
We enjoyed working with these vendors!
