Mike + Hope | An Intimate Pinehurst Wedding

Wedding

After EIGHT YEARS, they’re MARRIED!!

I thought that I was done with weddings for the year, but Mike and Hope had other plans for me! They planned the most beautiful intimate wedding in just a few WEEKS! They hired me just TWO WEEKS before their wedding! We did a quick engagement session (because everyone needs an engagement session and everyone should work with their photographer prior to their wedding) and then it was wedding time!

I can’t say enough great things about Mike and Hope. We did a home engagement session (see it here ) and I walked into the most loving home – greeted with lots of smiles and hugs and a even a few kisses (from their dog)!

That love that I felt in their home was even more apparent on their wedding day and made me wish I could do intimate weddings all the time! Their days was filled with laughs and tears (happy of course) and spent with the people most important to them and it was PERFECT.

Mike and Hope, thank you so much for the honor of capturing your wedding day – and gaining such a sweet friendship from you two!

If you went back and looked at their engagement session, you know that Hope is actually pregnant! So, for their wedding cake, they did a gender reveal cake for all of their family!
