Jordan and Spencer’s beautiful and intimate wedding took place at Revolution Mills in Greensboro and I was honored to be there with them to share in all of the beauty and love that surrounded them that day. I would love to say that it was as beautiful outside as it was indoors, but alas, that would not be so. This, folks, was the weekend Hurricane Joaquin decided to rear its ugly head. Thankfully, in the end, the forecast of inches and inches of rain and hurricane-force winds on their wedding day did not materialize. But Mother Nature certainly didn’t cooperate in the way that we wish she had. But to Jordan and Spencer’s credit, their spirits were not dampened (get it???) and they reveled in the joy they felt on that day and enjoyed every minute of the love of their friends and family.
Even now, weeks after the wedding, when I see the images below of Jordan’s lace gown, I am just awe-struck. Such a truly amazing and delicate gown and I think it really set the tone for the day. If you haven’t already seen Jordan’s bridal portraits that I posted just after the wedding, go visit. Her classic and iconic beauty is unmatched. And Oh My, those shoes. What a special touch!
Jordan’s flowers were designed by Tonya at Abba Design in Greensboro. Such a beautiful and rich combination of colors and flowers. I’m always amazed by the eye of a wonderful florist to pull everything together. A perfect accent to the colors of the day.
Before the wedding, Jordan took a few moments to read a lovely note that Spencer had delivered to her. Jordan is one of five girls in her family. I love these images of her sisters, bridesmaids, mom and future mother-in-law sharing in her joy as she read quietly to herself. There were moments of tears and laughter as she read through each carefully written sentence.
Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite images of these sisters getting Jordan ready. I simply cannot imagine what it would be like to have five girls in the family. The love and laughter that filled that home throughout the years was I’m sure, something to behold. And the bond that they all share has to be one that is unmatched.
Jordan had a few quite moments to survey the ceremony and reception area in private before her dad had a chance to see her in her dress.
Jordan’s dad gets to take a look at the first of his beautiful girls to walk down the aisle. Big sigh. Only four more to pay for!
Down below, Spencer and his friends were getting their ducks in a row. My friend, and fellow photographer, Grant Blair, was on hand to work with them and keep them focused…not always an easy job when you are covering the groom! But Spencer was totally elated about this day and was easy to keep on track. I think “smitten” would be the best word to describe him with regards to Jordan. Since the moment I met him, it was quite obvious that he could not wait until this day. He is by far the extrovert in their relationship and hiding his feelings is not something he does well when it comes to Jordan!
Not being one to relish a lot of attention, Jordan requested that she be allowed to share a first look with Spencer. She wanted to get the anticipation over with and get to share her excitement and feelings with him privately. And for a short time, the rain let up and we were able to go outside. Sweet, tender moments follow as they realize that this day they have planned for is finally here.
Love these shots below. So sweet.
Time to get back inside before the guests begin to arrive for the ceremony.
Love this…to break the ice, the minister asked Jordan and Spencer to turn around and say hi to their guests. What a great way to get everyone to relax and share a laugh!
Absolute favorite part of the ceremony…when Jordan was saying her vows and she literally broke into tears. The room was a puddle as the emotion of the day just got the best of her.
The Best Man and Maid of Honor had some wonderful words to share about the Bride and Groom. Always a fun time as they share stories that may or may not have been ones that the Bride and Groom wanted shared! Good for some laughs!
First dances with Jordan’s father and Spencer’s mother.
A moment that everyone wants to document!
Now it was time to really cut the rug. And this crowd did not disappoint. They let their inner dancer shine!
A quiet moment for Jordan and Spencer before the night ends. Super sweet.
What a joy to share in this day with Jordan, Spencer and their families. I’m excited to hear where their futures take them and am so delighted I could be part of this day with them. Wishing you so much happiness!
