Carrie + Isai’s Asheboro wedding
Carrie and Isai were wed by Isai’s father at The First Baptist Church in Robbins, followed by a reception at The Exchange in downtown Asheboro, NC.
Like most brides, Carrie worried about rain on her wedding day. And the forecast for the day of her wedding? All day thunderstorms! So the night before the wedding, we did our best to reassure her that rainy wedding day portraits can actually be awesome and packed a few extra umbrellas…just in case. Luckily, the storms passed just in time for Carrie and Isai to say their ‘I do’s,’ and the entire day was pretty much perfect! Carrie and Isai are seriously one the sweetest couples we’ve had the honor of photographing. They’re funny, kind, and such a joy to be around. It was an honor to photograph their wedding day, and we wish them all the best in their new lives together.What were some of your favorite wedding details? “One of my favorite details was the rings I wrapped around my bouquet. They were the wedding bands of my great-grandmother, my grandmother, and my mother. I also loved my Cowboys garter!”What is your favorite wedding day memory? “My favorite memory from the day was when the doors opened and I first saw Isai. It felt like such a dream! It truly was a magical day.”How did you and Isai meet? “I was working at a golf course when Isai walked in and approached me at the front desk. He asked me for directions to an event that was being held there, we made small talk, but nothing more. It wasn’t until I started working at the high school where Isai had once worked, that I ran into him at a soccer game…and the rest is history.” How did Isai propose to you? “The Outer Banks is “our spot.” Isai said it was on our first trip to the Outer Banks that he fell in love with me. Two years later, we are at the OBX, walking on the same beach where he told me he loved me. It was almost sunset, and Isai asked me to take a walk up the beach with him. While we were walking, I noticed the condos where we stayed during that first vacation. Isai asked a couple that walking by if they would take our picture. After some technical difficulty with his camera, Isai asked the couple to use his phone, and to keep taking pictures. After posing for the first picture, Isai turned to face me and then dropped to one knee, asking me to be his wife. I was speechless, and instead of saying yes, I could only give a thumbs up. Eventually, I found the words to say yes!”
Do you have any advice for couples currently planning their own weddings? “Relax! There are going to be hiccups along the way, and you just have to go with the flow.”Where did you go on your honeymoon? “The Monday after our wedding, we proudly watched Isai’s father graduate with his Doctoral degree from Gardner Webb University. Afterwards, we took for a relaxing week in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.”
