Styled Shoot: Holly and Corey's Wedding Portait Session by Crystal Stokes Photography (6)

This gorgeous wedding portrait/styled shoot comes to us from Crystal Stokes Photography based in Gastonia, North Carolina! Read on to learn the unique true story behind this stunning shoot, as told by the lovely bride:

My (now) husband and I got engaged March 9th, 2013. The day was the most beautiful day. Remembering that day and the days that surrounded it, it was the first warm day we had in North Carolina! We went out that day to look for furniture for our foyer. We purchased our first home and decided to furnish it one room at a time. After we went shopping, we went to a local restaurant. We enjoyed each other’s company. After eating, we decided we wanted to have a fire in our fire pit and grill out for dinner later that night. Corey was really excited to start that particular fire, but it wasn’t out of the ordinary because he is a very outdoors-y kind of man. I didn’t think anything of it. After he got the fire started, he came running in begging for me to come take a look. “It’s the most awesome fire we’ve had out here”, he said. I went outside and there he was, down on one knee. He went into a whole speech about why he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Obviously, I said yes, we called all our relatives and told them the news and celebrated the rest of the night by the fire!

Real Wedding: Brittany and Brian's Perfect Fall Wedding by Brandy Angel Photography (5)

This stunning DIY fall wedding comes to us from Brandy Angel Photography, based in Madison, Georgia! Here’s more about the couple’s sweet love story and their dream wedding as told by the lovely bride:

Our love story began at LaGrange College. I saw a tall, handsome boy walk into the room at a party and was instantly interested. After eavesdropping I learned that he had a sophisticated charm that interested me even more. Unfortunately, we were both in serious relationships at the time and Brian was told by his girlfriend to stay away from me because she could tell that our attraction was mutual. Five years later I made the decision to move south of Atlanta to a community that was more suitable for the lifestyle that I wanted to live. My girlfriends and I decided to go out to eat, catch up, and listen to music. Right away I spotted Brian with some of his friends so I started plotting how I could “accidentally” bump into him and make conversation. Plus he reminded me of Ryan Philippe from Cruel Intentions which I love. My friends and I followed him and his friends most of the night and until the opportunity opened and we had a wonderful, deep conversation.

Real Wedding: Michelle and Matt's Wedding by Tyler + Lindsey (2)

This down-home, yet elegant wedding comes to us from Tyler + Lindsey, based in Denton, Texas. Here’s what they have to say about the wedding and the happy couple:

Michelle and Matt are a sweet, down to earth, relaxed couple and their wedding was such the perfect reflection of them. The day had such a beautiful collection of personal touches that truly added so much personality. Michelle is in vet school studying to become an equine veterinarian and they both are animal lovers so both of their dogs hung out with them all day on the wedding day. Matt’s dog even rode in the front seat of his truck as he pulled in. Michelle intended to ride in to the ceremony on horseback but at the last minute the horse wouldn’t cooperate, so instead we just included her in their portraits. The antique truck shown was hand restored by the groom with a whole lot of pride and T.L.C. so of course it naturally served as their getaway car as well!
