You all may remember Ana + Tim from our engagement session we did together at their wedding venue, Mason Ridge in Liberty, NC. Well, their big day finally came and man was it one for the ages! I had been in the Pacific Northwest celebrating my birthday, flew in to NC at 3a and woke the next day ready to capture this amazing couple say “I do” to each other.

This wedding day had to be one of the purest days I have ever been apart of. Ana + Tim have been together for over a decade and their connection is just unreal. These two are best friends and the way he looks at her would melt the coldest of hearts. The day started off warm and sunny. It stayed this way long enough for these guys to get through their ceremony in the open field on the property. As soon as we finished with family formals, the clouds started to roll in and helped to create some of the most dramatic wedding portraits I believe I have ever taken. The rain held off until we got to the covered reception area, almost like something was making sure these guys could still celebrate, even with the rain threatening. The most amazing part is every time it was time to do something, like a first dance, in a space that wasn’t covered the rain would stop and right on queue when the music would end, the rain would start. Ana’s sister shared with me that within their Hawaiian culture, a rainy wedding day is kind of a big deal and a stellar forecast for their marriage (pun intended). Please enjoy their big day and leave them love and well wishes in the comment section!

I’ve looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of a bottle always dry
But when you poured out your heart I didn’t waste it
’Cause there’s nothing like your love to get me high
