Summer in North Carolina

I'll say it before and I'll say it again... Highlands, North Carolina is my happy place.  Cell phones don't work.  Internet crawls at a snails pace.  You can't see or hear your next door neighbor.  It's glorious, just glorious.  This tiny collection of photos is from this summer, Memorial Day and the Fourth to be exact, and in no particular order.  I think it reached 75° at it's hottest.  It is heaven on earth.

We did the usual. Hiked, drank, ate, read, conversed, drank, ate, white water rafted, zip-lined, swam, watched fireworks, and found a den of rattlesnakes.  I even managed to lose my wedding ring in the lake.  I made it 6 months, and at least it's in a pretty romantic spot, if I do say so myself.  Oh well, mine's replaceable.    

I am already missing those cool crisp mornings, but it won't be long before I return.  

Until next time, NC.

Aimee & Dylan :: A Birmingham Affair

Aimee is an Alabama girl, born and raised, and Dylan is an LSU Tiger, like myself.  Despite the obvious divide in loyalties, both families seemed to get along just fine.  If sports are left out of it, it's really not surprising that both sides love a good time and a good party, and I think that shows here.  Also, I was really impressed by the dance skills on both sides of the divide...truly impressed.

I've also included a few photos from the rehearsal dinner the night before, just because the location was so beautiful.  If you want the best views of Birmingham, I'm not sure it gets much better than Vulcan Park.  I had a blast shooting this beautiful wedding and I can't wait to explore more of Birmingham in the near future.

Anyway, I'll let the photos do the talking.  Enjoy.


[It should also be noted that the wonderfully talented Kate Dearman helped out on this wedding.]
