Chasity and Jake: Rustic Barn Wedding: Wendell, NC

From the moment the day started till it ended there was nothing but smiles splitting the faces of Chasity and Jake.   They met in college and from how Chasity tells he she knew well before Jake that there was love in their future.  Her eyes lit up as she told the story of their love starting and how much it grew.  

The wedding was a burden of love from both families.  The bride's sister (and matron of honor) worked endlessly hand in hand with the bride and mother of the bride to make the dream wedding come alive.  With the use of the family barn and beautiful property surrounding was the setting of this elegantly, rustic affair!

How cute are these ChristyNg Shoes?! I'm so in love with Etsy!

Each detail of the decor was hand picked and crafted with love.

The maid of honor was amazingly creative with this use of hardwood floors, stencils and spray paint!  Makes you want to be crafty... or maybe that's just me :D

Chasity had the amazing idea of doing a "Message in the bottle" guest book.  For each year for the first five years they had a bottle.  Each guest lovingly made notes, gave advice or encouragement for the bride and groom to open at each anniversary.

The bride's choice of Henkaa bridesmaid dresses allowed each bridesmaid have a dress they love and fit them perfectly!

Jake and Chasity's love of family yard games showed as you crossed their reception greeted by your choice of washer toss, horse shoes, ladder ball, Jumbo Jenga and the list goes on.  It was guaranteed to be a fun evening! 

From the moment their hands touched during the ceremony till they pulled away in the limo, Chasity and Jake had eyes only for each other.   It was so great to see Chasity and Jake's love shine!

In the months leading up to their wedding, Chasity and Jake and to maintain their relationship long distance and so they weren't able to practice their dance together.  In their separate cities they each practiced their dance but their first time dancing it together was on their wedding day.  I told Chasity the day of the wedding and I'm saying it again: it was so perfectly them; it was amazing!

They danced the night away.  Chasity and Jake don't let their life be anything less then they dream.  One of my favorite quotes of the day was from the bride, "When I see Jake I don't see his chair"  That one statement embodies their love and their life together.

The night was filled with celebrating and dancing the night away!

Thank you Chasity and Jake for the privilege of capturing you on your wedding day, it was a joy!
