When we met Sandie & Chris back in October for their Apple Orchard engagement session, I immediately fell in love with their personalities, humor, and love for each other. We met for coffee, got to know each other a little bit, and spent the afternoon roaming the quiet streets of Hickory, NC for their engagement session before they headed home to Texas. We were SO looking forward to seeing Sandie & Chris at their wedding after all those months- it felt like a reunion (a really well-decorated, perfectly lit, beautifully orchestrated, amazingly styled, reunion).
So often you’ll hear a bride describe how she wants to feel like a princess on the day of her wedding, and ladies, if you’re looking to feel like a princess- Graylyn Estate, in Winston Salem, NC, is the venue for you. This place looks like a castle, and is so perfectly manicured and maintained that I felt like if I opened a window and sung a happy song, birds would come flying to the sill to listen to me (ya know, like in the Disney movies). Prior to their wedding, I wanted to scope out the grounds, so my mom and I made a day trip up to Winston Salem to walk around Graylyn and take in the sites. The skies were that crisp Carolina blue, the grass was perfectly mowed, flowers were in the bloom, the sun was warm on our skin, birds were happily chirping- it was PERFECT. In fact, we stood there in silence taking in all the beauty and my mom suddenly shouted out “IS THIS A REAL DAY?!”.
Sandie & Chris’s wedding was absolute perfection as they were surrounded by their close friends & family for one of the sweetest, most love-filled weddings I’ve ever seen.
Sandie & Chris- from the bottom of our little hearts, thank you for inviting us to share in your day!
Here are just a few of my favorites from their wedding (many, many more to come!) Enjoy!
