Two important things to know about Kris and Joe:
1. They laugh together. A lot. Their happiness inspires everyone around them to laugh and be happy, too. If that isn’t living life the right way, I don’t know what is.
2. They know how to throw one HECK OF A PAR-TAY. Seriously!
When Kris first contacted me last year about shooting their June wedding, I was thrilled! It sounded like so much fun. They live right on Whispering Pines Golf Course so they were going to have a wedding by the pond on the golf course followed by a reception in the fabulous clubhouse. I couldn’t say, “I’m available!” fast enough.
They started the morning off EARLY at their house with a mimosa brunch and then Joe headed to the course with about twenty close friends and family members for a game of best ball.
While Joe was busy golfing, Kris chatted with a few of her girlfriends and made sure everything at the reception site was just perfect. Love all of her decor!
From the custom golf balls inscribed with their names and wedding date (see above), to the J and K candles (love those!), to the golf ball cake, the entire day was FILLED with the most perfect of little details.
After an early afternoon break, the golf teams got fancy for the big wedding and headed over to start the processional in golf carts. The big crowd of guests loved it!
The ceremony that followed was heartfelt and very sweet. It took place overlooking the pond, which was backlit by the summer sun. Ahhh…summer… The officiant did an AMAZING job as did the singers. And I do have to say we got some great kiss shots!
Kris really likes my barn photos I’m always posting (and so do I!), so we headed over to an old barn on the property for the family formals.
And later, we were lucky enough to get these sweeeeeeet dusk shots!!! Yeah!!!
The reception rocked it!! Everyone loved the gorgeous display of food catered by Moon River Supper Club, and the dj played awesome dance music until the very end. What a fantastic party at a beautiful location!
Kris and Joe, thank you SO MUCH for letting us capture your awesome wedding day! We had such a great time! Best wishes to you lovebirds!! xoxo!
