The Cotton Barn at Brock’s Farm Wedding

Winterville, NC

Devon + Rachel

It’s not everyday that you get to shoot one of your best friends wedding. It was such a huge honor for Devon + Rachel to choose me to take on their big day. Jared was actually in the wedding party so I was able to call on the talented Brian Culbertson to hang with me and photograph that day. It was kind of weird having him on the other side of the cameras. There are definitely some choice Jared dancing shots from the reception though ;)

They chose The Cotton Barn to host their wedding, a beautiful working farm out in Winterville. We had perfect fall weather and tons of sunshine for their day. They fully embraced the fall theme and filled their reception space with tons of gorgeous mums, hay bales, and pumpkins which went so well with the rustic barn wood. They said their vows at their home church, Winterville Baptist, and then we rode on to the farm for some photos with the newlyweds. We had just enough breeze to get Rachel’s veil working in our favor. Just add a little golden sunlight and I was one happy photographer!

They spent the night dancing under the market lights at their reception with all their friends + family.
