Charming Backyard Wedding | Wake Forest | Paige + Landon

Happy Thursday, friends!! I’m so excited  to share another AMAZING Wake Forest wedding with you today!! You may remember Paige and Landon from their Yates Mill engagement shoot a couple months ago!

This charming backyard wedding and tented reception had a true southern, casual elegance to it!  This was a REAL first for Bill and me! Not only did we photograph this gorgeous day but we were actually the only two witnesses when these two smitten kittens tied the knot!  They decided to do a private ceremony down by the creek and it was only the officiant and us! It was a beautiful ceremony and we will definitely never forget it! The reception was a fun backyard bbq in an elegantly decorated tent. The DIY touches really added to the charm of the day!

Introducing the new MR. and MRS. CRIST!  Congratulations you two!!
