Two things made up Ben & Ashleigh’s wedding – love and music. These two crazy cats are a go with the flow, we’re in love and we don’t care, play it loud, play it hard, kinda couple. When it rained on the day of their engagement shoot, they were like “so?”. ha! So I waited with high anticipation all of 2013 to see how they would use the love of music, disco balls, and friends to turn The Loft in High Point, NC into a wedding party mecca. Without a doubt, they made it happen.

Before the ceremony, we did a first look at the top of the United Methodist Church in Kernersville, NC. The sun was out, Ashleigh looked amazing, and Ben was naturally overcome with emotion. I’m here to tell you, if you want uninterrupted emotion, without a ceremony getting in the way of things, a first look is the way to go.

Ashleigh went to great lengths to surprise her parents by having the officiant who presided over her parents wedding at the same church be part of her wedding with Ben. Very cool.

Moving over to the Loft, you’re going to see the amazing planning, setup and decorations put forth by the combination of Ashleigh, Ben, Ayesha at The Loft and Susan-Marie and Summer of Coordinated Events. From the flowers to the disco balls and lights, to the food and cake, it was all amazing. Chris from Triad DJ brought it all to life with the music and lighting setup.

You don’t need me to ramble on when the photos below bring it to life. Cheers to the amazing group of people who were part of the wedding, the guests who partied hard, and the vendors who made it all happen. Hats of to seeing special friends at the wedding too, including U2 Fred, Linda, Bo, Jenny of Miss Jenny’s Pickles, and Andrea of Triad Weddings Magazine. And of course for any design and paper needs, call Ashleigh! She does amazing work and you can see it at Ashleigh’s Fine Paper.

Cheers to Ben and Ashleigh, you guys set the bar!

“Yes!”: John proposes to Tiffany in Raleigh, NC http://vesic.com/2014/03/yes-john-proposes-tiffany-raleigh-nc/ http://vesic.com/2014/03/yes-john-proposes-tiffany-raleigh-nc/#comments Wed, 26 Mar 2014 14:36:56 +0000 http://vesic.com/?p=13417 I met John 3 years ago photographing his sister Genevieve getting married to Ben.

I met John 3 years ago photographing his sister Genevieve getting married to Ben. Around 6 weeks or so ago, they both emailed me with an elaborate plan for me to photograph John proposing to his girlfriend, Tiffany.

Genevieve and Ben were crucial in making all the pieces come together as John flew in from Texas back to his home state of North Carolina to propose to Tiffany at a special spot at Lassiter Mill Park (they used to hang out when in school). Roses were set up, pedals led the path, and they even arranged for parents and siblings to hide at a distance in the trees so they could see it happen.

The proposal went off perfectly, and if you’ve never seen someone else propose, it is definitely an honor and something special. She didn’t see us, and wasn’t expecting this, as you can see from her reaction.

After the proposal and some photos at the park, we went over to the Warehouse District and took some more photos, of the families together, of John and Tiffany, and different groupings until we parted ways so they could have a great lunch together. It was a perfect Sunday morning. And so thankful the rain didn’t start until about 45 minutes after we were done taking photos.

The photos speak for themselves. I’ll get out of the way, and a big giant Congratulations to Tiffany & John :)

Vasu & Vivek: Indian Wedding at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC http://vesic.com/2014/03/vasu-vivek-indian-wedding-prestonwood-country-club-cary-nc/ http://vesic.com/2014/03/vasu-vivek-indian-wedding-prestonwood-country-club-cary-nc/#comments Thu, 20 Mar 2014 21:35:47 +0000 http://vesic.com/?p=13184 Vasu & Vivek turned up the heat on a cool February/March weekend for their amazingly fun Indian Wedding at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC just outside of Raleigh, NC.

Vasu & Vivek turned up the heat on a cool February/March weekend for their amazingly fun Indian Wedding at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC just outside of Raleigh, NC. I spent 3 days with them, their friends and their family, coming in from all over the world (literally, coming in from as far as India and Singapore).

Day one was an intimate Haldi and Mehndi ceremony with close family and friends. Day two was a beautiful ceremony and dinner at the Prestonwood. There was a pre-reception after party on the rooftop lounge at Solas in downtown Raleigh. DJ Rang came in to spin the tunes, and went late into the night. Day 3 was prep for the reception back at Prestonwood. An extended cocktail hour led to a first dance, some great speeches, including heartfelt ones from Vasu’s brother and sister Ashu and Manu, and great comedy from Vivek’s brother’s Vijay and the “Bigger Sankaran”.

DJ Rang didn’t need to wait for dinner to even start before turning up the music and turning Prestonwood into the hottest club in NC that Saturday night. The dance floor was packed, music loud, and the cryo guns cooled people off with awesomely huge blasts of compressed air. If that wasn’t enough, the massive confetti cannons showered the dance floor with confetti multiple times throughout the night. As always DJ Rang did a bang up job, not only with the music, but also with amazing lighting.

A special NC welcome also goes out to the amazing video team of Jen & Frank from Van Weddings. They came in from Vancouver Canada to work their cinematic magic over the course of the 3 days. A very cool and laid back couple which were so easy to work with and made an amazing video you have to check out.

Of course Manju Nigam did a fantastic job planning and setting everything up. It really was beautiful. And Sondra Johnstone at Prestonwood ran the entire event as smooth as always.

Cheers to Vasu & Vivek! Let’s check out some photos

A year ago when I sat down with Crystal, Jonathan and Terri, we talked about a snowy wintery mid February wedding, while spooning over Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter. We missed the largest snow North Carolina has seen in 10 years, by a week. Instead, we got 70 degrees. Crazy!

But thanks to a lot of hard work from Crystal, Jonathan and the famalies, and the very hard work of Jamie Southern of Southern Celebrations and Events, along with florist Keith Rhyne, it looked like winter and felt like winter. The Grain Barn was set up with snow capped ferns and crystals, and the winter spread through the main barn for the reception as well, and topped off with a fake snow throw exit at the end of the night.

The wedding was just like the engagement shoot we did a last year – laid back and fun. From Jonathan’s dad, Rick (the best man), who pranked everyone at the ceremony that he forgot the rings (including Jonathan, Crystal, the Officiant, and wedding planner Jamie, who was ran out the to parking lot believing the rings were in his truck), to the great party MC’d by Chris Fletcher and his team at Triad DJ & Events. Special note should be made the Rick wrote a heartfelt and fantastic poem as part of his toast.

Cheers to Crystal & Jonathan as they start 2014 as a married couple :)

I met Kent several years back at Tim & Betsy’s wedding in Rehoboth Beach, DE. He & Brad make up the amazing wedding film company Artifice Films. Be sure to check out the video here:

We had such a good time, which went well into a sunrise shoot on the beach the next morning. A few years later, I was blown away with the call to photograph his wedding with Natalie. Always a very humbling experience when a colleague asks you to be part of what becomes their big day.

Kent & Natalie’s wedding took place on Kent’s family farm. They put all this together as family, and it was amazing. Check it out, and take note, the ceremony site is the foundation of their future home.

Cheers Kent & Natalie!
