Sophia + John
I’m going to be honest, I don’t think there are enough wonderful things I can say about Sophia + John’s wedding day. It’s undeniable that their blush and navy blue wedding at the Umstead Hotel and Spa was absolutely gorgeous, but these two sweet souls are so kind and really shine together.
Their entire wedding radiated happiness and love from these two and from all of their family and friends. Sophia and John really made their wedding tailored to them and their ceremony was just so intimate and special. John started tearing up with joy and excitement as he watched Sophia walk down the aisle towards him. Once the couple took hands, the officiant had the couple turn towards the crowd to wave and extend a thank you to every guest for supporting them throughout their relationship and on their wedding day.
As the ceremony went on, the officiant shared the story of how they met when Sophia convinced him he should buy her a burrito and then John used his amazing finding skills and pulled Sophie out of a dumpster she was hiding in for a game of hide and seek! It was such a fun story to share and it really helps explain just how light-hearted these two are, how much fun they have together, and how much they love food! Their entire ceremony was filled with the most puns I have ever heard in my life and had everyone laughing.
These two were just beaming all day and their little fur-baby Tonto almost stole the show. Honestly though it was one of the most genuine, joyful, and love-filled weddings we’ve had the pleasure of documenting. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from their navy blue and blush wedding day at the Umstead Hotel!
