Kali & Will were married this past September in Will’s hometown of Edenton, NC. I met Kali for the first time the day of her wedding and I remember thinking oh gosh she’s absolutely stunning. She has this natural beauty and grace that is just so radiating. As she changed into her gorgeous wedding dress you couldn’t help but stop and just admire how much more stunning she made the gown look on. That dress was made for her and she wore it beautifully. I loved all the unique and personal details that Kali thought of to help make her wedding so special and personal. A beautiful opal ring that was her grandmothers, a family bible, holding their ceremony at Will’s family church, and a reception on the courthouse lawn that has family history as well. Kali did an amazing job incorporating all these sentimental pieces into her wedding celebration. It’s one of the reasons I loved photographing her wedding.
Together with their family and many friends they took their vows in one of Edenton’s beautiful churches the Edenton Baptist Church. From beautiful wooden pews, massive gold organ pipes that led your eye to one of the most amazing ceilings I have ever seen in a church, I knew then why it was so easy for Kali to have her ceremony there. After a very sweet ceremony Kali & Will with the Bridal party in tow loaded up onto the trolley and headed to the reception. Of course we had to stop along the way and shoot some pictures on one of the most iconic steps in Downtown Edenton. And the party picked right back up when we boarded the trolley again. I have to say hands down it was the BEST trolley ride ever!! Everyone was celebrating, passing the champange around and my favorite was the groomsmen moonlighting as the Trolley DJ. By the time we made it to the reception the bridal party was ready to start the real PARTY! And that they did. With an amazing live band providing the entertainment everyone danced the night away. The dance floor was never vacant. It was so great to see everyone celebrating Kali & Will and just having the best time. Throughout the day it was very clear that Kali & Will are blessed with an amazing group of friends that were really excited for them and so happy to be there with them.
Here are some of my favorite images from their beautiful wedding!!
