The Barn at Woodlake Meadows | Bear Creek, NC | Molly & Tyler | May 20, 2017
We’ve been excited for Molly & Tyler’s wedding day for almost TWO YEARS since they booked us! After hanging out with them on NC State’s campus for their Engagement Session, we realized how full of life and how fun they are as a couple. SO, we just KNEW their wedding day would be a BLAST!!!!
Weather had been predicting thunderstorms for their wedding day, but we were blessed with a sunny, [really hot] day with NO RAIN instead. It was a great surprise.
We arrived at the Barn at Woodlake Meadows – and it was WAY more than just a barn!!! The property is extensive – with tons of housing areas [the bridal party stayed onsite for the weekend – so cool!] ceremony spots, barns, sheds, shacks, silos, and TONS of fencing with farm animals! Phillip found a bunch of cute little goats, and told me he was smuggling one home. The property is SO HUGE, that the bridal party was given 2 golf carts to drive back and forth between venue spots!
Molly’s bridesmaids were all so fun [and really pretty too!] they were helpful with all her detail items, and they were incredibly SWEET to not complain in the 90+ degree heat we were dealing with. Phillip really enjoyed all of Tyler’s groomsmen & ushers. They were goofballs, and even though there were a BUNCH of guys, they all cooperated and did a great job.
Tyler & Molly’s outdoor ceremony was right on the water, and they said personal VOWS [not VOWELS; A, E, I, O, U and sometimes Y – all their guests understand that joke, haha] that were really meaningful.
We were SO impressed with Molly & Tyler’s attitudes through ALL the portraits when it was midday sun and so hot. They were amazing through all the craziness – and even let us sneak them BACK outside when it got dark for a fun nighttime portrait!!!
The reception was literally a PARTY!!!! Their guests were on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG, and DJ Samantha Earley [Sound Connection] rocked it out!!!! Their crowd was awesome – and everyone was having so much fun!
The evening ended with a tunnel of sparklers AND FIREWORKS!!! It was a beautiful way to end a FUN day! We hope you’ll enjoy our favorite images of the day! P.S. HAVE AN AMAZING TIME IN IRELAND, Tyler & Molly!!!
