A ceremony overlooking North Carolina mountains and a striking southern sunset? Yes and yes, please. Amilia Photography, Love & Honey, and Holly’s Flowers did an amazing job on Alex and Ben’s wedding, creating a beautiful day with bright colors, always-romantic greenery, and a ceremony arch dripping with green amaranthus. There are so many sweet moments in this wedding, so get ready to take them all in.

From the photographer, Amilia Photography: Alex and Ben are such a special couple. These two care deeply about their friends and family, justice, equality, and loving each other well. Their wedding at Slightly Different Nursery in North Carolina was filled with bright colors, a stunning sunset, and a ceremony overlooking the North Carolina mountains. It doesn’t get more breathtaking than this!

I loved getting to photograph Alex and Ben’s first look, and the complete joy they had to be with one another! Another one of my favorite parts of the day was getting to witness Ben, Alex, and Alex’s dad all tearing up at the beginning of the wedding ceremony. There are so many genuine, meaningful moments in this day, which is always my favorite thing to photograph as a wedding photographer. I have so much I could say about this wedding, but instead I’ll finish with this Brene Brown quote that describes this amazing couple so well: “We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection.”
