Meredith and Chad say “I Do”
I was very honored, overwhelmed with joy and excitement when Chad and Meredith asked me to Photograph their Wedding Day.
I love their location where they chose to exchange their vows, a one of a kind. … and it’s in Stokes County!
A new venue, Moores Springs Manor in Westfield, North Carolina with an amazing view of Hanging Rock Mountain.
Congrats Chad & Meredith!!!! xoxo
