Sarah moved to Raleigh, North Carolina not knowing a single soul. But, that didn’t scare her- no. Sarah viewed the move as an opportunity for adventure. Knowing no one excited her, and she decided the best way to get to know the city and it’s people would be to try a dating website. Not having much luck, Sarah almost gave up on the idea….. until a young, handsome army man messaged her.
Conversation with Jeremiah always flowed and was never forced. Though he lived an hour and a half away from her and was stationed at Fort Bragg, he was ever willing to take her out, and adventure with her. Sarah loved that. With Jeremiah, her heart didn’t just flutter— it explored. He challenged her in ways no other man had and loving him quickly became her greatest adventure.
These two were married at a river house by the water. Their ceremony was quiet and quaint- just like them. Sarah did the most perfect job piecing together the most beautiful details that brought her Wedding Day to life in the most personable way. Not only was this wedding lovely, but the best part was that Sarah’s mom + my mom are best friends! Our parents raised us side by side and because of that, my sweet parents got to attend the wedding and my dad officiated the ceremony! It was a family affair 🙂
Needless to say, the sweet blonde haired and blue eyed little girl that I grew up with became a gorgeous bride, and it was an HONOR to tell her love story through these priceless images. Jeremiah, you’re a lucky man!!
