Natalie and Mike: Southern Pines Wedding!

Natalie and Mike were married this past September in an outdoor ceremony on the beautiful property of the historic Weymouth Center in Southern Pines.  I was really excited when Natalie’s mom contacted me back in May about her daughter’s wedding.  I didn’t personally know Natalie before we started planning her wedding, but my own mother and Natalie’s mom are very close friends.  It’s always rewarding helping someone plan their special day; when it’s a good friend of your own family it makes it that much more special!

 

The weather was absolutely perfect that day for Natalie and Mike to say “I Do” under the tall luscious trees on the property.  The sun was just starting to set while beautiful music from Tommy Edwards filled the air.

 

Natalie and Mike wanted their wedding to be one people remembered, and they definitely made that happen!  They filled the evening with fun and outdoor lawn games, specialty home-brewed beers (one for Natalie and one for Mike and both were fabulous), and a night of dancing under the stars.  It was a perfectly scripted night for them! :)

Thank you Jenny Tenney Photography for capturing these amazing images from Natalie and Mike’s special day (and night)!
