Christina and James are getting married at the Lake Lure Inn and I am especially excited because it’s the location where my aunt and uncle got married about 15 years ago and I ‘shot’ my first wedding! It was a point and shoot camera with a built in flash that I was using from the second row of seats but the look on my uncle’s face when he first saw my aunt was captured with that camera and it’s such a special photo, even today! I am also a big fan of the movie Dirty Dancing and the Lake Lure Inn is where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey stayed while filming the movie!
I’m also excited because, after spending time with Christina and James at their engagement session, we know their wedding day is going to be awesome! When Christina decided on Freedom Park for their engagement session, I immediately did a little research on what might be blooming and was thrilled when I found out that the cherry blossoms should be in full force! Freedom Park also has the pond, the bridge, the fountain and the willow tree (which is one of my favorite things to shoot in). So many great options! Their session was one of our last two before the stay at home orders were put in place so we were grateful to be able to do it. They have had to reschedule their wedding like so many couples but we cannot wait for the new date to get here! I know you’ll love looking through their session!
