Haleigh and James

August 18, 2016 |

Oh how I loved this gorgeous wedding: the dresses, the flowers, the venues, but most of all, I loved this adorable couple!  Haleigh and James were high school sweethearts at FPD. Their love carried them through college, and now James is in the Air Force. So this wedding was a long time coming, and there was so much love and joy surrounding their day. I can’t wait to share all the beautiful details with you!


Every bride needs “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.” Haleigh received this pearl necklace, her “something old” as a 13th birthday gift from her parents. The diamond earrings were borrowed from her aunt. Of course her dress was “something new.” She wore an Auburn garter as “something blue.” Haleigh&JamesWED_0002 Haleigh&JamesWED_0003

Haleigh’s gorgeous dress was from Bel Fiore Bridals.

We found the perfect little courtyard at First Presbyterian Church so that their moment would be perfect! Haleigh&JamesWED_0012 Haleigh&JamesWED_0013

This is Haleigh’s home church, and it’s also where her mom works. I love that they chose a beautiful painting of the church as the cover of their program, painted by church member, Lewis Smith.
