McKenzie and Cris’ Wedding- Part 1
Ballantyne Country Club

May 19, 2018.  This was truly the happiest day of both Mckenzie and Cris’ lives.

Theirs was a picture perfect story in every way- a perfect Carolina blue sky (after major rain predictions), the best dressed wedding party, 2 very supportive families and a bride and groom with classic, old Hollywood good looks!  Alisha and Alyssa knocked this wedding out of the park!

I am breaking their blog post into 2 parts because there were just so many gorgeous images to share.  We love it when couples choose a first look pre-ceremony because we have so much more time to capture romantics, bridal party photos and family formals.  Especially on days where rain is the forecast, this smart choice gives us 2 options for photos.  IF the rain hit pre-ceremony and we could not achieve all we needed outdoors, there is always time post-ceremony to try again.  OR, if we captured 90% of all photos pre-ceremony and it was raining later in the day, no worries….we already completed our checklist for the day!

But seriously, how adorable is this couple that first laid eyes on each other in Chapel Hill? These 2 were set up for a college fraternity Valentine’s cocktail and the rest is truly history! College sweethearts became Mr. and Mrs. Seippel on 5.19.18 and we were the lucky ones who got to capture it all.  Enjoy Part 1 of their beautiful wedding day below.
