Taylor & Jenn - The Barn at Camp Nellie - North Carolina Wedding Photography

Hello, hello!

Oh, how excited I’ve been to share this wedding with you! I had the pleasure of celebrating Taylor and Jenn’s marriage with them at their wedding mid-May, and it was such a good time. They and their families are gems, and it was an honor to capture the big day for them.

I’m posting the photos all in one block going down the blog post because of the sheer number of photos I wanted to share with you! This means I won’t add captions for different groups of photos, so here are a few thoughts and things to look out for:

  • The Barn at Camp Nellie is a neat venue with lots to offer in a fairly small amount of space! In addition to the main building, there’s an outdoor ceremony area, a lake, a covered bridge, a patio area where the after-dinner reception took place, and other buildings where people can get ready! Bonus points to the outdoor ceremony area to having shade for the officiant & couple, which we also utilized for portraits after… It was a hot day!

  • Taylor & Jenn met while working at Nike - hence Jenn’s “Just Do It” socks!

  • Both dads were so sweet throughout the day. They sure do love their daughters, and there were tears to prove it.

  • Yes, one of the main wedding colors was Carolina blue; Taylor & Jenn are huge UNC fans!

  • Look for photos with fun poses and silly faces from Taylor & Jenn… I love how much fun they had with the photos and how much they let their personalities shine throughout the day :)

  • I always love meeting family members and close friends of the couple the day of the wedding, and this wedding was no exception. Everyone pictured in this post is so down-to-earth and friendly!

  • Taylor & Jenn had an awesome cake smash… Apparently a promise had been made for no cake smashing, but alas, it was EPIC. Don’t miss those photos!!

  • Finally, I tried to hit the key moments from the day, but remember these photos are just a small sampling of what the couple received. I hope you are able to see the story of the day well through the photos I’ve included here, and let me know if you or someone you know is getting married and needs a photographer!

  • I hope this goes without saying, but yes, Light Creative is friendly to people of all backgrounds, including LBGTQ+ individuals and couples. I love you all and want to honor you as you are!

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy the photos!! Feel free to click on any individual photo to view it larger.

Taylor and Jenn chose to use their photo art credits to receive a gallery image for their home and a photobook with photos from the wedding day! I’m so glad they’ll always have tangible representations of this special day, and they’ll be able to see them around their home whenever they want.
