Susan + Andrew | Haw River Ballroom Wedding

I had the honor of capturing Susan and Andrew’s wedding this summer at the beautiful Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw! I met Susan and Andrew through the BSF Raleigh Young Adult’s Class, and they have grown to be sweet friends to my husband and me. They are truly a sweet and joyful couple, and have a great sense of fun (as you’ll see in the photos below!).

I remember the forecast kept going back and forth between rain and sunshine till the day of the wedding. Fortunately, most of the rain stayed away once we started capturing photos! One of the most touching moments that day was when Susan and Andrew prayed together before the ceremony. Y’all, it was seriously SO beautiful, tender, and touching that I started to get tears in my eyes when they were praying!

Another fun and special aspect of the wedding was the reception. The wedding party surprised all the guests by doing the YMCA on the stage, and it was super AWESOME, so well coordinated, and the crowd went wild! Also, they had the coolest and most unique alternative to a bouquet toss and garter toss; they did a BEAR TOSS. Yes, you hear that right! A bear toss! Susan tossed a UNC teddy bear and Andrew tossed a NC State teddy bear (those were their alma maters), and the crowd absolutely LOVED it!

There were SO many more beautiful and awesome moments, and I wish I could share them all with you! Below are just some of my favorites that capture the joy and excitement of the day! Congrats again, Susan and Andrew, and may God bless your marriage!
