Erica and Lucas are so much fun and we have enjoyed getting to know them over the past year. The fun started with their Pilot Mountain engagement session. You can check out that blog post here. We had such a great time climbing on the rocks with them on Pilot Mountain and that rock theme carried over to their wedding venue. They also hired us to capture their rehearsal dinner so I had the opportunity to meet many of their family and friends and check out all of the opportunities for our portrait sessions.
These two chose The Quarry at Carrigan Farms for their ceremony and reception and it was so beautiful. My husband, Ryan, has been to the Quarry a few times to swim over the summer and he had told me what a neat place it was so I knew we were in for a treat. I didn’t realize initially that the property also has two ponds, one of which has a dock and a willow tree right beside it. Shooting in a willow tree is seriously one of my dream spots for portraits and I as THRILLED when I saw this one during the rehearsal dinner. Erica and Lucas even scoped out some spots with me during the rehearsal dinner so we had a great plan for portraits on the big day.
Erica and Lucas chose their wedding date based on the availability of their dream venue but they didn’t realize until later that their wedding date would be on her grandmother’s anniversary. She and her grandmother are very close and this made the day all the more special. Her grandmother was not able not make the journey down from New York but was able to watch the ceremony via FaceTime and chat with her newly wedded granddaughter right after the ceremony. We are so glad we were able to capture such a sweet moment.
They had a great time dancing the night away with their family and friends and even snuck away for an AMAZING night shot with the quarry rocks lit up behind them. It’s the last photo in the post so be sure to check it out!
