Megan & Rick: Wedding | Fred Fletcher Park & Sitti Restaurant. Raleigh, NC

Megan and Rick. Ohmygoodness. I liked these two from the very start. From the very first email even. Megan contacted me before she even had her wedding date and I was so thrilled because it insured that I got to work with her no matter what. They knew they wanted to get married at Fred Fletcher Park and have the reception at Sitti and so I already knew that they already had a great eye, but then she emailed me a link to her Pinterest board and then I knew she had amazing style. We both had many of the same exact things pinned so I thought of Megan as my perfect bride, but it didn't stop there. Megan and Rick are so adorably in love. Adorably! I love all the emotion these two share and I am so glad that they found each other. They are an amazing couple.

The wedding was perfect. Every time I turned around there was something gorgeous to photograph be it details, an incredibly happy couple, elated guests, great dance moves, a rickshaw ride, delighted family, laughter, and joy. Everywhere joy.

Oh, and this rickshaw ride. Holy guacomole was that fun. I even jumped from one rickshaw to another while it was moving and I felt like James Bond for about five minutes.

Megan went all design amazing for their wedding. There is sooooo much eye candy here- get your pinterest clicking fingers ready.... Everything is gorgeous.

UPDATE: This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty on June 26, 14.

I don't know if you know, but basketball at Duke is huge. The students will spend months living in tents outside of Cameron Arena, in K-ville to get tickets to the Duke-UNC game. This is where Rebecca and Scott fell in love.

Kristin and Matt: Married!!!! | Mordecai Park. Raleigh, NC

I am so thrilled to show you Kristin and Matt's beautiful wedding photos. Everything about this day was perfect. Lots of love, tears of joy, pure happiness. Kristin also made sure all the details were absolutely perfect as well. She showed off all her crafty skills with this amazing DiY touches. If it can be homemade Kristin did it. Including the hanger, necklace, hairpiece, everything.... You can see more of Kristin's fancy work here. She has this amazing talent and I am going to buy some of her jewelry one of these days. It's just hard to choose my favorite.

I also did some experimenting with a film action. I hope you like it. It reminded me of my good ol' days shooting with T-Max 3200. I thought it fit with the locale of the Mordecai Historic Park and gave it a nice feel. I normally never ever ever use these actions, because I love the elegance of simplicity. But this looks like film and I miss (read: Love) film. And film fits in with my style of Timeless, right?

I'm so glad that Kristin and Matt chose to have a First Look. These are so sweet.

Kayla & Ryan get married | Morrison, CO

I love all of my couples. I get pretty selective, so this is no accident. But, after all the time I have spent with Kayla and Ryan, I feel as these two are truly friends now. I met Kayla a few years back, when she first started dating Ryan. I saw the excitement in her eyes and heard it in her voice, about how she was totally in love. When I got the email from Kayla that her and Ryan were engaged, I became totally elated. She asked me to fly back for her wedding and I didn't even have to think about it. I practically screamed YES!

When I finally got to meet Ryan at their engagement session, I knew. He is perfect for her. That same love is also in his eyes. Then, when I saw them together at Jenna and Mike's wedding a couple of months ago, it was so great to see them all cuddly walking down the aisle together as a bridesmaid and groomsman. I got so excited for their Big Day!

I am so incredibly honored to have captured their love in pictures.....

I got to hike around Red Rocks, since the drive took three hours less than I had planned. Yes, this is what I consider punctual.

I am so glad that Kayla and Ryan chose to have a first look. I was so excited to see Ryan's face when he saw his bride. Kayla was stunning!

I love you both and am so incredibly happy for you.

xoxo, becci

Fred & Kristin: Mr. & Mrs. | Jack London Square. Oakland, CA.

Fred has been one of my husband's really good friends for a long long time. I've had the pleasure of having Fred as a friend for a good ten years. He's one of those great people, and we were so happy for him when he met Kristin. She is so sweet, fun and just great to have around. Together, they are fabulous. So, when we found out that they were getting married (and that I was getting to shoot their wedding!) we were thrilled. Fred and Kristien- We love you! I was already really excited to shoot this wedding, just out of my love for these two. When I found out how much of their own personalities were imbued into their wedding I was even happier. Even the invitations reminded me of them. Every single detail was perfect. Perfect.

Jenna and Mike. I can't say enough good things about them. They are funny, sweet, likeable in every way. I love the way they look at each other. You can see the comfort yet they still look like giddy kids still all goo-goo over each other. I even love their family and friends. What a perfect wedding for a perfect couple. I am so honored that I got to be a part of this special day. I am so happy for the fabulous Mr. and Mrs. Schroeder.
