Dewberry Farm Engagement Portraits Kernersville NC Heather + Keith Engaged | Kernersville Wedding Photographer

Dewberry Farm Engagement Portraits in Kernersville NC by Christina Forbes Photography

I first met Heather and Keith when we skyped to talk about their wedding photography for their Summer wedding at Dewberry Farm in Kernersville, NC. And one thing that completely captured my attention was their wedding planning story. It’s one that’s full of sacrifice and perseverance. It’s actually been several years in the making!

Throughout the past few years Heather and Keith have chosen the perfect wedding date a few times. And each time they began to plan, another life event came in and caused them to pause the planning. They’ve welcomed 3 precious babies, finished years of school to earn degrees and started new jobs. Despite all those things happening in their lives, they never gave up of having their dream wedding. When one was ready to give in and say “let’s just elope”, the other was there to say “are you sure?”. Once they even decided that they would go to the beach for week and just get married. They were both so sure about that decision, that Keith told his friends and fellow co-workers “when I come back I’ll be a married man”. Well needless to say, Heather felt that pull one last time to not give in. So when they returned, Keith had quite the explaining to do when he got back to work! LOL

I’m so glad that Heather held onto to that dream and wouldn’t let go! Not just because I’ll get to be apart of their wedding day, but because they’ll never have to wonder what could have been. Heather & Keith will never have to look back and wish that things could have been different. Instead they can look back and see just how amazingly strong they were to continue to fight for their dreams no matter what they are. And to be reminded how together they sacrificed and pulled together to achieve a dream.

Here’s a few of my favorites from their Dewberry Farm Engagement Portraits! Enjoy!!
