Sarah & Ryan at The Historic Brookstown Inn, Winston Salem
Jul 1, 2019 | By: Doug Burke Photography
Sarah and Ryan’s wedding was spectacular from start to finish! From the moment I arrived to document their day I knew I was in for a treat. Of course, I met Sarah and her brother over coffee at Twin City Hive Coffee Lounge to talk about the plans for the big day months in advance and had a good idea of what they were looking for.
When I arrived on the day of the wedding, I had the privilege to meet the love of Sarah’s life, Ryan. I must say Ryan was nervous to be in front of the camera but quickly became comfortable as I followed him around. I was able to get some shots of the guys and bounced back and forth between the guys and girls until the ceremony.
The Historic Brookstown Inn was the perfect backdrop for these two to say their wedding vows. From the elegant rooms, common areas to the courtyard, there were no shortage of locations to shoot. Sarah and Ryan decided beforehand that they wanted to do a “first look”. For those that aren’t familiar with this it is a chance for the groom to see his bride before the ceremony. I got Ryan into position and Sarah was ready to go. As she crept up on him from behind, I could only imagine what his reaction would be. As she touched his shoulder and he turned around it was like I witnessed everything they ever wanted, right in front of them, each other.
The wedding went on without a hitch. Dinner was great, cake was licked from faces, Sarah got down on the dancefloor in a wedding dress with sneakers, and a truly spectacular moment was had with the bouquets. This day I will remember for the rest of my life. I truly want to wish them only the best and look forward to seeing them again one day.
