It always amazes me how some connections, no matter how short-lived, seem to be written in the stars. When Kate’s mom called me about their wedding, I had promised myself I would cap 2012 bookings at 15, and had turned down every wedding that came my way after I hit 15, no matter how wonderful it sounded. But when I spoke to Kate’s mom, something told me this one was just meant to be. A year later, when I pulled up to Fearrington for their wedding, I knew I was right where I was supposed to be.
Kate & Hunter stole my heart from the minute we met. The connection was instant & they welcomed me into their celebration like family. These two are the very best of friends.. they are rarely serious ( every sweet moment that started with tears ended in roars of laughter), and I love that Kate calls Hunter by his last name, like she’s part of the frat-boy fold. Truth is, Kate is one of those girls who can hang with the guys & fit right in. She’s absolutely stunning without even a stitch of makeup, and radiates beauty from the inside out. Any girl that would have a birthday cake brought out for her little sister ( complete with song ) on her wedding day, is tops in my book. From start to finish, this couple.. this wedding.. this day was an absolute joy.
Kate & Hunter, what a gift it was to document your day..thanks for having us. xo
