I actually came to know Emily through other weddings. Emily has been a bridesmaid in weddings I've previously shot (shoutout to Autumn and Rachel!) and I was ‘low-key’ hoping I would be able to photograph her wedding day too. She is genuinely one of the sweetest women I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
As a photographer, you see the behind-the-scenes of wedding days. There’s a reality that not many guests get to see. Sometimes brides and family are stressed out, sometimes the timeline doesn’t work out, the weather isn’t ideal, and sometimes emotions are all over the place. That wasn’t the case with Emily. She was calm and collected throughout the entire day. These are the moments, as a photographer, that I feel a connection with brides, when their true colors shine and you can tell where their focus is. For Emily, I could tell she was focused on marrying her best friend and that’s all that mattered.
Any opportunity to shoot at The Barn at Heritage Farm is a pleasure. From the massive floor to ceiling windows in the reception area (or indoor ceremony area), the 1956 Ford truck outside, to the beautiful views of Pilot Mountain, this venue has it all. Not to mention that their staff is amazing.
Emily and Morgan had a beautiful June outdoor ceremony at the Barn at Heritage Farm. With their family, friends, beautiful skies, and views of Pilot Mountain surrounding them, they became husband and wife.
Here’s a glimpse at their beautiful day:
