AMANDA + WES - WinMock at Kinderton Wedding

My first wedding of 2013. Where in the world did the beginning of the year go?! Everyone, meet Amanda & Wes. These two were a joy to photograph together. So many smiles all day long. : )

Amanda & Wes's gorgeous winter wedding was held at the beautiful WinMock at Kinderton in Bermuda Run, North Carolina. I thought it was so neat that they had the ceremony set up in a circle. Family and friends were positioned all around them and it felt much more intimate, especially because the guests held lighted candles. I also loved that they included their adorable pup, Brooks, in the photos and the ceremony. And oh my goodness... the band. Rubberband was awesome! I don't think ANYBODY wanted to leave this rockin' reception! Congrats, you two. Many happy years together! : )

I loved that their dog stayed at Amanda's feet while she was getting ready. So sweet.

Amanda's hair was so glamorous!

Stunning. : )

So cute: on his shoes were "She's" and "Mine."

Eeeee! LOVE THESE!

First look - so sweet!

Love.

LOVED the gold vases!

Wes & Amanda's close friends got up during the ceremony to read something personal they each had written. This was so touching!

In lieu of the traditional wedding party shot, they opted for a fun photo op with close friends. LOVE!

The couple got engaged in Napa.

Such a stunning barn. Right?

I had some stiff competition during the cake cutting, but it's okay, because they fed each other multiple times. ; )

Wes's Dad = awesome.

Amanda's dad = amazing.

This couple was so adorable. Sneaking kisses in the corner...

I don't think I've ever seen FOUR people catch the bouquet!

Wes's brother and girlfriend = SWEET dance moves!

I LOVE this photo.
