Meet Brandon and Julie.
They tied the knot New Years Eve over in Hertford, NC at the beautiful Lands End Plantation. Brandon and Julie shared such an incredibly laid back and intimate wedding day with their sweet family and close friends. They had one seriously emotional first look (which is where the Bride and Groom see each other for the first time before the wedding) and ventured out with us in the tall grass in a neighboring field for their couple portraits before the wedding ceremony. It was literally freezing but you’d never be able to tell…Julie and Brandon snuggled up close and laughed the entire time.
I absolutely adored how Julie and Brandon first met. This what she had to say: “We meet through mutual friends in late July in Goldsboro, NC at Busco Beach. It was a graduation present to myself, I had graduated nursing school that Wednesday, took my NCLEX that Thursday and took off for Goldsboro that Friday morning! He rode up on his four wheeler with some mutual friends on Saturday morning (just about the time I found out I had passed my nursing boards) and we hit it off pretty much instantly. That Sunday morning, I left to come back home and later that same evening he met me in Elizabeth City and the rest is history…”
When you are around these two, you feel the love they have for one another. They goof off, look each other in the eyes and are constantly smiling. It’s safe to say….these two were destined to be together. From the muddy paths of Busco Beach to the grassy fields of Lands End Plantation…They’ve come full circle and it’s a beautiful sight to see.
Please enjoy my favorites from the love story that is their wedding day…..
