Tanglewood Arboretum, Advance, NC: Dana and Jared

   The day began slightly overcast... a photographer's dream... with just a mildly cool breeze in the air.  At Tanglewood Arboretum, the gardens were blooming with every sort of flower imaginable creating the perfect setting for a beautiful spring wedding... and the adjoining cow pastures were covered in a soft blanket of green sprinkled with lovely yellow wild flowers. 

   While Jared relaxed around the pool with his groomsmen and friends, Dana prepared for the day in her suite surrounded by her bridesmaids and family.  The mood in her room was very calm and relaxed but as the day moved on the anticipation grew and excitement filled the air.  Even the threat of rain could not dampen spirits as the moment drew near.  Dana and Jared reveled in their first private glimpses of each other in a beautiful walled garden and then promised to love each other for the rest of their lives beneath a beautiful arbor surrounded by their friends and family.

It was also a pleasure to work alongside Melissa Kernstine of Hair Razers as Dana prepared for her big day.
    I am so grateful that Dana and Jared allowed me to share their day with them and to have the priviledge to document their love.  I was also thrilled that Dana and Jared agreed to be my first bride and groom to take advantage of a first look before the ceremony, which gave them a few private moments to enjoy being alone together on one of the most memorable days of their lives before the hustle and bustle of the wedding day began.

 Dana and Jared, I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing trip to Miami, and thank you again from the bottom of my heart for sharing your special day with me!
