Emily + Michael | WinMock at Kinderton | Winston-Salem, NC Wedding Photographers

I LOVE so many things about Emily and Michael’s wedding day that my text with this post would be extremely long in addition to the MANY photos I am about to share. The things I love:

1. Emily and Michael

Emily is the nicest, sweetest, most soft-spoken bride ever and she has the most AMAZING big hazel eyes! She also has a smile that can melt people and I just cannot get enough photographs of her! Michael is the cool, laid-back type… the kind that you never see them sweat. You know what I mean? He was calm, cool and collected all day even though it was the biggest day of his life! The only thing I love more than Emily and Michael separately is how much I love them together! Their personalities are the perfect compliment to each other and their relationship together is so sweet and tender. You will see it in a couple photos later on…

2. WinMock at Kinderton

This is the first time Dave and I have worked at WinMock at Kinderton! It was such a cool venue! It is actually a very new venue that opened after North Carolina’s oldest dairy farm was renovated into a wedding and event venue. The main hall when you enter which is now gorgeous and houses getting ready rooms and conference rooms, used to house all of the cow stalls. It was SUPER cool!

3. Rebecca Rose Events

This was also our first time working with Becca of Rebecca Rose Events! I cannot tell you how much smoother a wedding day runs if you hire a wedding planner/coordinator! Becca and her team of lovely ladies kept the day running on track and were super helpful to Dave and I. Emily and Michael did not have to worry about a thing, because Becca had everything under control and was amazing!

On with the pictures….

It always makes me laugh when I see the pictures of what the guys were doing while the girls were getting all prettied up! It must be nice to be so relaxed on a wedding day! 🙂 Emily, you were STUNNING! Absolutely stunning! You couldn’t help but smile when you watched the three sisters giggle together! It was so sweet! I bet you that Emily’s mom has pictures of them giggling just like this when they were little girls!
We did not do bridal portraits of Emily before the wedding day so we made sure that we saved ten minutes before she got tucked away to take a few portraits of her!  I have to admit that I was watching the weather radar on my iPhone the during the hours leading up to the ceremony. I was so glad to learn that they decided to hold the ceremony outside but I watched the radar anxiously hoping that we could get through the ceremony and portraits before the rain came. Luckily enough, the skies held out and the ceremony was gorgeous outside of the WinMock.  Emily waiting out of sight for the processional to begin… I LOVE THIS PICTURE! Emily is so excited right before she walks down the eye but her dad looks as though he is not quite sure if he is ready to give his youngest daughter away. This is the first time I have seen the father of the bride hold the bouquet! 😉 The new Mr. and Mrs. Perkins!! The picture on the left is a picture that Dave grabbed unbeknownst to them immediately after the ceremony before anyone had joined Emily and Michael for pictures. It was such a sweet and tender moment captured between the two of them right after they said their “I Do’s”. How cool is this venue??

It was an amazing day, Emily and Michael! We were so honored that you chose us as your wedding photographers to document your big day! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together and we hope to work with you again in the future!! 🙂
