Dustin + Amy | A Carolina Barn Wedding

Wedding

I’ve been waiting for Dustin and Amy’s wedding since they booked me last summer and I can safely say that it was everything I had hoped for and more!

I have a special place in my heart for law enforcement and first responders – which was a big focus of this wedding since both Amy and Dustin are in those categories. If you don’t already know this, my husband works in law enforcement and I see the way things weigh on them. The things they have to see and deal with is nothing short of incredible. They give their lives to help serve others and they wouldn’t have it any other way. They work countless hours on, let’s be real here… horrible schedules. But they love their communities and don’t regret a thing. First responders have the best hearts, and I’m so honored to get to do so many weddings for this community.

Dustin and Amy, it was such an honor to capture your wedding day, but it was really just an honor to be around you two and your family and friends. From all of the details, the moving ceremony, all the way to Amy’s Dad doing the best dance I’ve ever seen during his toast… this is one blog post you don’t want to miss!

And the most hilarious introduction ever! They pretended that the bride and groom were missing and then had the local police escort them in!

Amy’s Dad has officially won the best wedding toast in my book! Breaking out his “Dancing Queens” dance from when Amy was younger and embarrassed by it!
