Jon and Paisley had to change their wedding venue from a farm to downtown Durham not long before their big day. Paisley wrote me an email apologizing for the change and saying she understood if I couldn’t shoot the wedding anymore. After doing their engagement shoot, there was no way I was going to miss it. These two are just plain awesome people. They are full of life and joy and a huge amount of love for one another. Those kinds of people make good pictures. More than that, those kinds of people make really fun experiences and I was not about to pass this wedding up. I said I was in, no matter what.
The venue was The Pit in downtown Durham and the schedule of events included a short ceremony with Paisley’s dad as the preacher and a big plate of BBQ for all their friends and family. I asked if they’d be up for a photo shoot around the town before the ceremony started. I was afraid we’d have to cancel due to the rain and cold temps, but when Paisley pulled up, she was ready for anything.
The ceremony was so relaxed and full of giggles and tears. It was an absolute honor to capture this love and this day!
