There is so much to say about their day. It was all so perfect and beautiful!
First of all, they got married at the most beautiful venue in Statesville, North Carolina called The KinsleeShop Farm.
We started their day with extreme overcast and the possibility of rain. There were lots of prayers being said all week and we saw the chances of rain dwindle as the week went on. On their wedding day, it was very low but still a possibility. So, I brought my clear bubble umbrellas, just in case!
They got married by a beautiful oak tree with a cross that Chelsea’s dad and brother built. It was covered with beautiful flowers from Birch n Willow located in the Lake Norman/Charlotte area.
After the ceremony, we headed off to the many locations that this venue has to take pictures. From the barns, many fields, and lake with a boat house; this venue has it all and we took full advantage of that! Of course the rain decided to make it’s appearance but the sun was quick to start shining right after!
After the rain cleared, it was already time for their reception. We decided to set back out for some golden hour pictures after. They had the best food by The Smoke Pit located in Charlotte. BBQ with all of the sides that you could think of. It was delicious!
With this venue, you do not want to wait until true golden hour to get the lake pictures because the sun sets behind the tall trees that surround the lake. We chose to do those pictures 30 minutes before golden hour begun.
They have the cutest little boat called Beatrice that we started Chelsea and Art in.
We then had a chauffeur on their golf cart, take them to the boat house to do some landscape pictures. Look how gorgeous they turned out!
We then went on to toasts, cake cutting, and their sparkler exit. While everyone was getting lined up for their exit, they decided to have one last dance. A moment to themselves without anyone around. Except for me and Tanner! This was such a special moment for them and I highly recommend every couple consider doing this.
We ended the night with a sparkler exit!
