“Peter is so sweet and he’s so smiley.” “Kayla is so gracious and kind” “They are just so cute together”. These were the sentences that Krista used to describe Peter and Kayla. As a second shooter, I don’t usually get the luxury of getting to know the couple prior to the wedding day, so I rely on the primary shooter to convey exactly who they are. Every couple that I’ve had the honor of working with has been wonderful and this couple was no exception. This church ceremony took place in Chapel Hill, a location that is near and dear to my heart. My husband and I did our first look at UNC and our wedding took place in the adorable little town. The church had great natural light, and we had some fantastic spots to shoot bridal party portraits. Their reception was one of my favorites, to date because they got to spend some time out on the baseball field for couple’s portraits! I feel like newlyweds are the exception to most rules. I mean, who could refuse a couple in a white dress and suit? Some of the highlights of the day were definitely the baseball field shots, the amazing bridal party, Peter’s incredible dance moves, and Peter’s “I love Kayla” socks that he rocked on the wedding day, revealing them to Kayla post-ceremony. I hope you enjoy this sweet couple as much as we enjoyed photographed them.
Each of the groomsmen had custom socks that fit their personality. Note the “I love Kayla socks” on Peter? I died!
Peter’s face lit up the entire day whenever he looked at Kayla. I just love these two!
Kayla and Peter had their reception at the Rickhouse which is right beside the original Durham Bulls Stadium. As we were walking past the stadium, the coaches beckoned Peter and Kayla onto the field before a game just so they could get some pictures! Who gets to say that they got their couple portraits on a baseball field right before a game?!
Their dessert table was simply epic! Love all of the choices!
