Oh the Places We Will Go


Brian tells me all the time that I don't clean, I organize. And for all intents and purposes, he's right! I can't just wipe down the counter, I need to make sure my spices are in alphabetical order and my containers in a straight line. It's just what I do. It's not done if its disorganized!

Thankfully I'm the same way with my receipts and my wedding contracts, which are neatly organized by wedding date and bride name, in my adorable green filing box. That being said, I do take a periodic look through my files to make sure they're updated and I started to realize what great venues I will have the opportunity to photograph in the next few months. Here are just a few that I'm especially thrilled about!


1. Pine Lake Pavilion (Mebane, NC)

I love this venue! It's located next to a gorgeous lake, has this very amazing tent for the reception and is an overall beautiful location. I've had the opportunity to photograph there before, and am looking forward to going back to photograph an upcoming wedding there in April.

2. The Grand Marquis Ballroom (Raleigh, NC)

The Grand Marquise is exactly as it sounds. Elegant. Grand. Beautiful. I'll have the opportunity to visit this venue in June, and I look forward to using the grand structure of the ballroom for some very romantic photos. 


3. The Hayloft (Mcleansville, NC)

The Hayloft is perfectly southern, perfectly North Carolina. It tugs at my inner Southern Belle and I can't wait to visit this gorgeous barn in July. I can only imagine what the bride & groom will do with this location!



Some other amazing venues I cannot wait to photograph someday include The Venue at East Front in Burlington, NC, The Arbors in Cleveland, NC, and Proximity Hotel in Greensboro, NC. I know any wedding held at any of those venues would be stunning, and I would be super excited and honored to be a part of that wedding. Fa reals!

Happy Planning you brides out there! Thanks for reading!
