Navy and Pink Hurricane Wedding at Ritchie Hill | Concord NC Kristen + Caleb Married

 Navy & Pink Wedding during Hurricane at Ritchie Hill by Christina Forbes Photography

When Kristen and Caleb started planning their dream wedding, a navy & pink toned wedding at Ritchie Hill in Historic Concord NC, they went with an early October date. It shouldn’t be too hot or too cold on their wedding day and it would be the perfect early fall wedding right? Well not exactly. The one uninvited guest was Hurricane Matthew. Not a single couple that was getting married last weekend could have possibly imagined that they would be getting married in a Hurricane! And even though we had tents trying to blow away, centerpieces falling and breaking, and a constant flow of rain, everyone came together to make sure that Kristen and Caleb still had an amazing wedding day.

Even with the crazy weather happening outside, inside Ritchie Hill was a bride that was singing along to her favorite singer’s albums, enjoying her grandmother’s company and having the best day ever. I absolutely loved watching Kristen as she laughed along and made light of the weather & the ever changing plans for the day. Kristen was taking everything in stride and was so upbeat. Afterall, no matter what she was going to marry her best friend.  With the rainy weather, Caleb and Kristen chose to change their plans and have a “first look”. And man am I glad they did! You guys when Calbe turned around and saw Kristen his mouth dropped. It took him a minute before he could start telling her how amazing she looked. But the look on his face says it all! The love, joy and excitement these two shared reminded you that it doesn’t matter about what decor you have or don’t have, the type of dresses your bridesmaids are wearing or the food your guests are served….it’s about the 2 people who are coming together and making a commitment to one another…for better for worse, for good times and bad times.

Together with their family and friends these two celebrated and danced the night away! Everyone was having a great time and wasn’t worried about the falling rain and the gusts of wind that moved through the porches of Ritchie Hill. There was a constant sound of laughter and cheers. One of the highlights of the reception was Caleb’s dance with his mother. You guys they literally used the entire dance floor for their shag dance to Carolina Girls! Which I have to be honest it was pretty awesome! They were twirling and spinning and moving all around. I don’t think anyone could have kept up with them. And let’s be even more honest it was also pretty amazing because I LOVE the song Carolina Girls! And I can’t forget the song in which someone decided to spin the bottle…and wouldn’t you know…it landed on me and so of course I had to take my turn and dance in the center. It’s okay I promise you didn’t miss much with my dance! LOL

Kristen and Caleb- you may have had a hurricane on your wedding day but you just knowing you guys and the love and friendship that you share…you can weather any storm that comes your way! Congratulations you guys! XOXO
