Adam + Crystal // wedding at The Oaks at Salem in Apex, North Carolina.
The beautiful fall day started out with a little rain as a lot of the weddings this fall have. Thankfully it cleared up as the ladies were getting ready. Crystal's modern and sleek dress paired with a cathedral veil was the stuff of dreams! When Adam saw Crystal during their first look, you could see him get a little catch in his throat. When they exchanged cards by the potting shed they both quietly cried. We wandered around The Oaks at Salem property while they laughed and exchanged stories about how the day had gone so far. Crystal had burned her arm on a curling iron and Adam's brother forgot his suit jacket. These small details did not matter, however, they only added to the overall story and memory of their wedding day.
Their ceremony was a joyful one. Crystal's mother, wearing a traditional Korean dress, looked on with teary eyes as her daughter said her vows. The parent reaction that really wrecked me was Adam's mother during their mother and son dance. She sobbed quietly as he hugged her tight and began to cry as well. You could hear her whispering "I love you". Since becoming a mother, these moments get me the most and I couldn't help crying right along with them.
Congratulations to Adam + Crystal! Here are a few of my favorite moments from their day.
