It could not have been a more beautiful June day this past Saturday. The skies were clear, flowers were all in bloom, and a happy couple was married. Hallie and Cody’s Charlotte wedding was the last I would shoot as Jessica Cochran Photography (see update here), and it was such a lovely way to close this chapter. Their family and friends traveled from all over the country to celebrate them, and love and laughter was overflowing throughout the whole day. There were so many personal touches that made the event complete, with shades of purple and plush greenery accenting it perfectly. It was truly a picturesque Carolina wedding at Deerpond Plantation! Hallie and Cody’s strength and joy was was contagious, and I was honored to be a part of their day. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Moore! I know there’s a world of love and friendship ahead for you! CharlotteWedding_0009

This post has been something in the making for a while, and I’ve tried writing it several times. It seems best to just jump in, so thanks in advance for sticking with me!View More: http://kristimckeagphotography.pass.us/lindsay-jess

  • Lindsay Fauver - Jess!!! This made me cry! Thank you so much for your sweet words! You are too kind! I am SO grateful for you and look forward to this new season together!!

  • Jessica - You totally don’t know me but we are connected by mutual friends from CNU, including Lindsay. I came here through her IG and just wanted you to know that my husband and I dealt with infertility and the season of waiting and pruning (which is now continuing in other areas of our life) was one of the hardest and best for us. We struggled for almost 4 years before we got pregnant and still don’t know if that will ever happen again, though we’re obviously more hopeful. Just wanted to say that we will be praying for you in your infertility journey! Best of luck with all of your new ventures! 🙂

They met through a mutual friend who told Megan, “I’ve found your husband.” Teage had everything on Megan’s “list” .. Loves Jesus, wears boots, drives a truck, family guy, animal lover, can fix anything .. Megan had found her match. Teage also fell quickly, but was patient and built a strong relationship with not only Megan, but her family. Their bond is solid – and it’s just the beginning! Loved ones traveled from all over the country to celebrate with Megan and Teage this past weekend, and their North Carolina wedding was truly an unforgettable event. The spring weather was perfect, and couple’s joy was contagious. Megan and Teage – I am so glad to have made new friends in you two (thanks for connecting us, Eryn!). What an honor it was to be a part of this day! DestarteWeddingBarn_0013

  • Natalie Brinton - These are gorgeous pictures! Congratulations Megan and Teage!

Spring is in the air – and Western North Carolina is coming alive once again. We’ve had some beautiful weather lately, including this past Sunday for Megan and Teage’s Mills River engagement session. We met at Bold Rock Cidery (my fave!) and had such a joyful evening together. Let me tell you, I have loved getting to know these two. Teage works at Young Life Windy Gap, our neighboring camp in Weaverville, and Megan is a nurse at Asheville’s Mission Hospital. They met through a mutual friend, and quickly realized they’d found their best fit in each other. Their big day is next month, and you can easily see how excited they are. Megan and Teage, I simply can’t wait! Thank you for having me be a part of your wedding celebration!

Fall in Virginia is one of my favorite things ever. Add a beautiful couple in love, a darling bed and breakfast, and lots of old friends and I’m done. Jenny and Isaac’s Middleburg wedding was truly one for the books. You may remember these two from their JMU (go Dukes!) engagement session and how much I adore them. They are a dream and I am confident God is going to do incredible things through their marriage. It was an honor being a part of your day, Mr. and Mrs. Hulvey! You two are perfect together and bring so much joy to those around you! Congratulations!!
