Sharon + Jake's Backyard Lake Wheeler Wedding | North Carolina Wedding Photographer Lauryn Alisa Photography

I had the pleasure of shooting Sharon and Jake's backyard wedding on a gorgeous day in May.  This Bride and Groom were absolutely wonderful!  Their love was tested from the start when Jake had to move to Thailand for work only a few weeks after they met.  Majority of their relationship has been spent thousands of miles away from each other, however they have come out stronger and more in love than they were at the start.  The entire evening you could see how excited Sharon was to become Mrs. Mays and how much Jake just adored his beautiful new wife.  Their love was infectious! It was a magical evening on Lake Wheeler.

The most special part of their wedding was sharing it with their beautiful daughters.  Sharon has three girls and Jake has two, and their 5 girls made up the bridal party on their wedding day.  They all came together as one family and it was absolutely perfect!  To celebrate their joining family, they had a rose ceremony in which each girl came up and placed a rose in a vase to make one beautiful bouquet!  It was so sweet!

Their intimate wedding was filled with beautiful details, including one long table to sit their guests, gorgeous florals, yummy food, a beautiful and delicious cake, and of course stunning dresses!  I wish Sharon, Jake, and their whole family a lifetime of happiness!

Don't forget to show some love to the amazing vendors who made this day happen!:
