Sometimes you get that wedding.  That dream wedding where almost everything just falls perfectly in line.  For me, it was the wedding of Michael Ann and Tyler at the beautiful Croasdaile Country Club in  Durham, NC.   

Michael Ann and Tyler are so in love and are truly the greatest friends to each other.  They laugh and love hard.  It’s a joy be witness too.  What’s even better is the larger than life personalities in both of their families.  It made for a day full of fabulous facial expressions and lots of emotions.  

The ceremony was full of funny mishaps including Michael Ann tripping her father as they started down the aisle (while he was doing his best to get her down the aisle on crutches after literally slipping on a bar of soap in the shower the week before), forgetting how to tie the knot in their knot ceremony and laughing at an officiant who may have confused their names.  These funny moments will be great memories for them for years to come.  

The light was perfect for portraits following the ceremony where I took their closest family out for some memorable shots and some that were just down right funny.  Then we sent everyone away and just let them enjoy some quiet time together to get some beautiful photos and to let their union soak in.

The reception was gorgeous with beautiful pink Juliette roses and blue Hydrangeas provided by the talented Courtney Inghram.  The father/daughter dance had most of the room in tears including me standing next to her mom bawling right along with her.  The mother/daughter dance had everyone in stitches as Ty and his mom literally shook their tail feathers.  Most of the night was spent dancing and enjoying each other.  Lots of fist pumps, dramatic group singalongs and fantastic moments shared with their closest family and friends.   

For me, this wedding will definitely go down as one of my favorite weddings of all time.  What made it so great was an amazing couple starting their adventure together, the incredible Angel Dibbs Photographer by my side helping me make sure we got every shot we needed and being my truest friend by pep talking me through, the talented Courtney Inghram for her gorgeous flowers, Croasdaile Country Club staff including the ever patient and accommodating Dylan and the amazing DJ Leslie Furness who pumped great music out and kept things flowing all night long!  All weddings take a team, a village and sometimes an army.  This one had the perfect combination.
