Wedding photographers always seem to be on-the-go, and Katie from Red Boat Photography is no diferent. She's from North Carolina and regularly shoots events both Tennessee and in the Carolina's. We're loving the rich emerald greens in this wedding that she shared with us today! From the tulips to the dreamy dresses, everything about this wedding is simply elegant!
Diana and Jon's gorgeous North Carolina wedding had all the ingredients to a perfect spring wedding: fresh tulips, an abundance of beautiful emerald and natural green colors (hello Pantone of the Year!), and a fresh and vibrant feel to their wedding. Perhaps what was the most endearing about this couple is their love for each other and how nothing else really seemed to matter, as it poured rain that day, which inevitably made the lovely details that much more beautiful. We mentioned the fresh tulips - how sweet is it, and amazing, that bride Diana and her family hand-tied those bouquets from blooms from Trader Joes? We love reading about fun DIY details like that!
Below Red Boat Photography relives some of Diana and Jon's gorgeous wedding day so be sure not to miss it...
From the photographer, Red Boat Photography: "When I met Diana for the first time, I was struck by the quietness of her nature. As we talked more, I realized more and more how her graceful personality resonated from a caring soul. An OBGYN with a passion for women's health, Diana was refreshingly centered about her wedding day. She wasn't stressed about the weather (as it poured rain outside the venue), she wasn't concerned about every last detail being perfect. She knew she was marrying the love of her life and that there is so much more to her marriage than the wedding day. Diana noted that when she and Jon visited the NC Arboretum the first time, she remembers stating "We should get married here!" And so they did! Diana purchased her gown from The Brides Project in Ann Arbor Mich. A bridal company dedicated to supporting patients and family members affected by cancer. Her floral was done by her family with flowers purchased from Trader Joes. Her amazing ring is tanzanite, purchased from Tanzania on a trip with Jon prior to their engagement. Everything about Diana was intentional and sentimental. With her sister and fellow doctors by her side, she wed the love of her life in a place they had visited together."
