Highgrove Estate on Laurel Lake Wedding | Christina & Jesse | A Fuquay Varina, NC Wedding Photographer

I am so excited to share Christina and Jesse's wedding on 5/31/15 at Highgrove in Fuquay Varina, NC with you today! I had a blast shooting their engagement pictures back in the spring at UNC's Coker Arboretum and I have been looking forward to their wedding day ever since! Christina and Jesse are a very sweet couple and their love for one another is so evident! I met them at my church in South Carolina, Crosspoint Church, and I have loved being able to watch them move from dating to engagement to marriage.

As I arrived at Highgrove on Sunday, I immediately fell in love with their venue! Highgrove is a beautiful estate with lovely, antique inspired rooms and gorgeous grounds. If you're looking for a wedding venue in the Raleigh, NC area I definitely encourage you to check out Highgrove! Christina and Jesse had a gorgeous orange and teal wedding and one of my favorite details was their incredible flowers! Their flowers were actually put together by Publix in Cary, NC where Christina's father, Tim Gibson is the store manager. They were stunning!

Their wedding day was beautifully decorated but most importantly, it was Christ-centered. I loved being in the room as the bridesmaids prayed over Christina shortly before she walked down the aisle. They had a beautiful ceremony officiated by Pastor Ken Lewis and Jesse and Christina prayerfully and joyfully entered into the covenant of marriage with a heart and desire for their marriage to be a picture of the gospel. One of my favorite parts of the day was when Christina walked down the aisle and Jesse teared up and got the biggest smile on his face! 

Christina and Jesse, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day! I hope you enjoy these pictures and memories and I look forward to seeing how Christ is exalted in your marriage.
