Stacy & Tad Dalpoas got married at Colin Creek Farm in Mocksville, NC last weekend and I was the lucky one who got to capture it. Everything about Saturday was memorable and I drove home that night feeling like a better person because of what I had witnessed and the impact it had on my heart. I’m not quite sure how to describe these two better than “united.” Every conversation, laugh, dance and movement just seems to be completely in sync with one another. At times, it felt like I was watching a movie. I never had to prompt them or bribe them to be loving–they just were and I happened to be there documenting it.
Every hour something more kind & thoughtful occurred than the hour before and it was just so beautiful to watch. Stacy was gifted a hand drawn sketch of her wedding gown to remember it always. Tad was gifted a watch engraved with the coordinates of their proposal in Greece. Stacy surprised her parents with an anniversary song that moved her mother to tears (and me, of course.) Children were playing while everyone enjoyed the naked cake baked by her aunt. Bridesmaids partied wearing flower crowns they made together. Tad & Stacy were enveloped with lots of love and support from those they cherish most and it showed in every tiny detail.
I must admit though, my favorite part of the entire day was the 20 minutes I was able to steal away with the bride & groom. The wind was blowing softly and I swear that tall, golden grass was calling for me…and I listened.
Enjoy Thailand, my world traveling pals. I hope these memories help you to enjoy your honeymoon even more.
All my love.
