I've known Toby Bryant all throughout my school years, so when Sarah booked his wedding to Jessica Foster I was excited to see an old friend and meet a new one in Jessica! Surrounded by greenways and sprawling sunset views, the reception was held at the newly renovated Farmville Country Club (another old friend I was excited to visit, I spent endless summer days there as a kid, jumping off the pool's diving board while my Dad participated in golf tournaments). Decorated with purple and touches of apple, the guests were greeted with a beautiful display of family photos and homemade apple butter takeaways. Guests dined on some of Toby's favorite dishes: pasta, quesadillas, and barbecue (which, being a North Carolina girl, I had to try. I gave it an A+). Mixed apple martinis got the party going and a hopin' dance floor set against the beautiful sunset kept it flowing.
Jessica, I have heard many wonderful things about you and it was an honor to photograph you beautiful wedding! All of the details were perfectly executed and made with the utmost of love, and you made for a stunning bride. Toby, it was great to see you and your "twin" brothers again. ;). You always manage to have your bride (and us!) bent over in laughter. You got yourself a great girl! Congrats, guys! Xoxo
Here are some of the shots I took that are my favoritesfrom the wedding. Sarah posted their "sneak peek" First Look on Goodwin Girls blog and will be doing a full post soon.
