When Seth and Samantha asked if I’d be available to photograph their wedding, I was absolutely thrilled. As Seth is in the military, they wanted to tie the knot on Flag Day with friends and family at home before their move down to North Carolina — which meant they had a lot of planning to do in a short amount of time.
Their wedding was exactly what they had hoped it’d be: an intimate brunch and ceremony surrounded by friends and family, with the sun shining nearly all day long. In fact, the weather was almost as beautiful as the bride.
I asked Seth and Sam to recap their favorite parts of their wedding, and they agreed that it was the perfect day. It was so much more than either of them could have ever anticipated.
Seth was nervous and excited all morning, but once he saw Sam for the first time, he said he blushed for the first time in years. Of the ceremony, he mostly remembers how beautiful she looked, and could not wait to kiss the bride.
Sam, on the other hand, shared how ecstatic she was when she walked down the aisle next to her best friend in the amazing atmosphere that they created together. Her favorite part of the ceremony? The vows. As they looked into each others eyes, she recalled Seth saying “I do” before their officiant had finished her sentence. While no one else seemed to notice, they shared a laugh in the moment.
Feel free to take a look at the whole gallery, but in the meantime, here are a handful of my favorite shots from their special day:
