Here are words that are rarely uttered: “The whole beautiful relationship started with a conversation about how she was a Blue Devil and I was a Tarheel”. However, that’s exactly how we come to today, where we’re posting the images from Karen’s and Mike’s stunning Pippin Hill Farm wedding. You see, we photographed Karen’s sister’s wedding and that was part of the initial conversations with Christina Spotts nee Richardson. Luckily for me, our shared love of ACC basketball and her love of our photography trumped the rivalry by a wide margin.
That brings us to today, almost four years later. It’s a honor to be a part of any wedding celebration, but I have to admit that being invited to be a part of a second family wedding is a particularly sweet thing. To know that Karen and her family trusted us to do for her what we did for her sister means everything to Lindsay and I. So, getting that first phone call from Christina (on Karen’s behalf) was much fun. We were just so thrilled to be back with the Richardson family and with the opportunity to get to know the Littlefields as well. No small part of our joy was also being reunited with Ryan Hayes, an amazing event coordinator turned good friend. Everything about the day exceeded already high expectations. From the Farm, to the people, to the party…we couldn’t ask for anything more.
Congratulations to Karen, Mike and their lovely families. Thank you so much for sharing the day with us.
