Amanda & TJ | A Classic Blush & Navy Wedding Celebration at River Ridge Golf Club in Raleigh, NC
Wedding: 18 May 2019 | Posted: 12 July 2019
This was the hottest wedding we have ever photographed.
I don't mean in terms of overall attractiveness (although Amanda & TJ's authentic, goofy cuteness does slay me!), hypeness (but it was a really fun party!), or intensity. I mean temperature hot. Scorching hot. Ninety-five degrees at the beginning of the ceremony hot. How Amanda looked so fresh the entire day was truly a miracle, whether of makeup, endurance, or pure and simple science, I don't know, but her look was almost as pristine leaving the venue in a shower of sparklers as it was walking down the sidewalk to tap TJ on the shoulder for their First Look.
So: hot. Sunny, clear skies, the kind of day you dream of when planning an entirely outdoor wedding. With lots of water and frequent trips into the air conditioned clubhouse, we all made it through with senses of humor to spare. Amanda & TJ's group of friends are fun and energetic, and they helped keep things cracking all day: jokes and dance parties, namely. Amanda & TJ had such fantastic attitudes all day, truly overjoyed to be spending their lives together, that it didn't take any coaxing by their families and friends to keep smiles on their faces.
We are so thrilled to have captured this delightfully fun day for Amanda & TJ and wish them so much joy and happiness in their future together.
