This lovely bridal portrait session comes to us from Bob Mackowski of Open Aperture Photography, based in New Bern, NC! Here’s Bob to tell us more:

Blair’s bridal portrait was shot at Tryon Palace, the premier historic site in Eastern North Carolina. Located in New Bern, NC, it was the original capital of North Carolina. It features historic buildings and lush, amazing gardens.

See more after the cut!

After spending most of the session in heels, Blair switched over to her beloved Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers for the final few photos. She also wore these sneakers during her wedding reception.

Wonderful, thank you Bob! For more information about Open Aperture Photography, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.
