Elizabeth & Sam's wedding day had an aura of, "Finally!" about it. Not because of COVID——no postponements or delays here——but just because, by the time their wedding day came around, they had been together for 12 years! Everyone in their lives was relieved to finally see them married.

When you've been waiting such a long time, gray skies and a slight threat of rain are nothing. Their ceremony was already planned for a covered area and, even though no one was fussed about it, the clouds did no more than threaten for the whole evening, allowing guests to mingle in the beautiful display gardens at the North Carolina Botanical Garden while enjoying cocktails and conversation. If anything, the unremarkable skies only highlighted the natural beauty of the venue and the shining joy on Elizabeth & Sam's faces.

These two spent the night reveling in their guests' company, enjoying each other, and celebrating the feeling of relief at finally being married. I am so grateful I was able to document this day for them and wish them every happiness as they embark on the next stages of their adventure together!
