Alex & Bethany tied the knot on May 2nd at The Bradford in New Hill, NC!! Surrounded by family and friends who helped with their DIY wedding, it was a wonderful celebration on a beautiful spring evening! Bethany’s brother-in-law preformed the ceremony & shared how Alex and Bethany knew each other in high school, but didn’t start dating until they were both attending UNC-Wilmington. Bethany asked Alex for a ride to church & soon after they went on their first date to the state fair.  Together for almost four years now, they are two of the loveliest, down to earth people you’ll ever meet.

Bethany’s mom, sisters & aunts did all the flowers themselves….the center pieces, bouquets, etc and they looked amazing! The Bradford is a newer wedding venue in New Hill, NC and it’s a photographer’s DREAM venue. The large white brick home has amazing light inside & out while the back patio area is a great setting for an outdoor ceremony & reception. I’m not sure if they built this place with sunset in mind, but the sun went down behind the trees  between the bride & groom exactly during their 5pm ceremony!!

Bethany shared thoughts about their day…“Alex & I honestly thought the whole day went perfectly! We couldn’t have asked for a better day & loved having so many of our close friends and family there to celebrate with us. The venue was absolutely lovely and we were so pleased with it!”

Many thanks to my friend Sarah Foor for being my assistant & second shooter for this wedding!! Thanks to Bethany & Alex for letting me document your special day, I hope you enjoy these gorgeous photos for years to come!! I wish you many blessings, love and JOY to you both for years to come!

They took a few moments to highlight some of their favorite bible verses in a new bible they will share together.
