Joanna & Corey Married! || Preston Woodall House || North Carolina Photographer

Since yesterday’s post was a little heavy, I think we need something lovely to cleanse the palate, yes? Yes.

Joanna & Corey were married last November at the gorgeous Preston Woodall House in Benson, North Carolina. This wedding was a really big deal for me. I have known Joanna since I was twenty. She and I worked at the same salon in Wilmington, North Carolina – she is an amazing stylist and I was a receptionist. She immediately took on this big sister role in my life and was a really positive influence on me when I needed one the most. I will always love her for that. About a year ago she emailed me to tell me she was engaged, and I knew right away I HAD to photograph this wedding.

I didn’t get to meet Corey until the actual wedding day, but as soon as I walked in the door, I could see why he and Joanna were so perfect together. They’re both funny, warm hearted, and laugh easily. It could not have been a more gorgeous day – surprisingly warm for late November and blindingly sunny. Just perfect. Joanna brought the old Hollywood glam – she was absolutely radiant – and Corey looked so handsome in his Marine uniform.

I am so pleased with what we captured, and could not have been more honored to be a part of this beautiful day. Joanna & Corey, thank you both for everything.
