Bethany + Matt

Romantic Pink and Gold Wedding at the Sutherland

Oh today’s wedding is just the prettiest! Bethany and Matt’s wedding at the Sutherland this past May sent my little photographer heart straight to Heaven. There were so many gorgeous details! From the sweet welcome bags filled with North Carolina goodies to her hot pink Valentinos, Bethany styled her wedding beautifully, and I had to much fun photographing everything! She took care to make sure every part of her wedding was soft, romantic and subtly Southern. I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite part of their day – it may have been Matt seeing his bride for the first time or their gorgeous custom invitation suite or the epic dance party that rounded out their celebration. All I know is that this wedding, from the beautiful florals (seriously I died when I saw Bethany’s bouquet) to the touching vows, was simply perfect. Congrats Matt and Bethany!!

I’m so excited to see this wedding featured on The Knot! An awesome team of incredible vendors came together for this event, and I’m so thankful for their talents. You can find their websites at the bottom of this post!
