This couple stole my heart the first time I met them over tacos and margaritas this past February. I mean let’s be real, tacos are always a good idea! We chatted, talked through wedding plans, and instantly clicked. I loved hearing about their incredible engagement story in Italy and learning about Missy and Ricky’s long-standing relationship for 10+ years! I whole-hearty believe that there is something particularly special about couples who watch each other grow up, then promise to spend forever together. It’s a deeply rooted bond like no other. Needless to say, I learned very quickly that these two were undoubtedly meant to be!
As Missy and Ricky’s wedding weekend plans unfolded, I knew that their big day would be unforgettable. These two tied the knot this past May at Chatham Station in Cary, one of the triangle’s newest venues. What an amazing venue, WOW! I was so impressed with the layout, natural light, and overall aesthetic. Missy and Ricky did such an incredible job planning their day from start to finish. I’m really excited to share these images because it was such a sweet, intimate day filled with meaningful and intentional details.
Missy and Ricky, thank you for trusting me with these precious memories and your special day. It was a dream! Congrats again Missy & Ricky!
