Ilene and Ryan had the sweetest intimate wedding at the Haw River ballroom! They were unusual clients for me because I actually only covered one hour of their wedding (family pictures and romantic portraits). Typically, I don't usually offer that kind of coverage (my packages start at 7 hours) but for their situation, one hour ended up working out for various reasons.
Even though I had such a short time to spend with Ilene and Ryan, I had SO much fun! It was very clear that Ilene and Ryan really loved one another and that they were so happy and excited to get married. They also knew how to have fun (see the evidence in some of their photos below!).
Ryan and Ilene told me how blessed they felt to be able to get married at the Haw River ballroom. It's one of their favorite places (and it's one of mine...I've been dying to shoot a wedding there forever!) and they explained that that their family made it possible for them to have an intimate wedding in Saxapahaw!
