Kasie and Sean were married last Friday at Childress Vineyards in Lexington, NC. This was one of the most beautiful weddings I have photographed all year. It was a gorgeous setting filled with happy people and lovely details! It was an honor to witness these two saying I do.
Kasie and Sean both work in the medical field. They met back in September of 2016 when she was working as a nurse assistant in the Emergency Department and he was a paramedic. She took the first step by adding him on Facebook and he asked her on a date. She said they have never stopped talking since!
Their first date was dinner at Sean’s apartment. He cooked her steak, green and potatoes. Kasie says he is a great cook! They were on the rooftop patio at the apartment and there was a meteor shower. Does it get any more romantic than that?
Sean surprised Kasie by proposing while they were at the beach. She said she was not expecting it at all. They took a sunset helicopter ride and after they got off he pulled her aside near the water and asked her to be his wife! If you want to see more of Kasie and Sean check out their gorgeous Pilot Mountain engagement session here.
Kristin and I began the day with Kasie and her girls in the bridal suite at Childress. Kasie was as gorgeous as ever and so happy. She had the cutest floral robes for all of her bridesmaids. She also had all three of her and Sean’s dogs in the room getting ready with them. The dogs made it in quite a few pictures throughout the day from getting ready to bride and groom and even the reception!
As Kasie put on her wedding dress Kristin went over to hang out with Sean and his guys. They were drinking whiskey and getting ready. Sean was excited and eager to see his bride!
Kasie wanted her first look to be in the portico at Childress and it turned out so beautifully. Kasie and Sean saw each other for the first time on their wedding day overlooking the beautiful vineyards. I don’t think I’ve seen a happier first look. Both Kasie and Sean were grinning from ear to ear. Their love is amazing to see!
After their first look we took tons of photos on the property. Most of which are in the vineyards or overlooking them since both Kasie and I love them so much! Childress is a gorgeous place to get married. We were blessed with a hot and sunny day and it made for stunning outdoor photos!
Kasie and Sean were married inside with gorgeous greenery and candles all around. They read each other heartfelt handwritten vows and exchanged rings. Some of my favorite pictures of the day were them walking down the aisle hand in hand as husband as wife. They had the biggest smiles and looked at each other so lovingly.
After the ceremony we went to the vineyards to take a few more bride and groom photos. It was an incredible sunset. Everything fell into place perfectly all day long and I’m so glad I was able to document it for them!
Their reception was filled with Cheerwine, good food, cupcakes, wine, dancing and celebration! Kasie and Sean were surrounded by the family and friends that love them the most. They said goodbye to them with the cutest bubble exit!
Thank you Kasie and Sean for choosing me. I am so grateful to you both! I hope you had fun in Asheville and that you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. Wishing you both a marriage filled with love and joy!
