The most common advice our featured brides give to our readers week in and week out? Throughout your wedding day, regularly step back and take mental snapshots. Slow the day down, and soak it in, or else it will whir by in a happy blur. I’m positive each of the ten most memorable moments below are imprinted in each couple’s mind just as beautifully as their photographers’ captured them for posterity.

I hope these photos help you to take a pause even today, and remember how joyful and sublime a wedding day can truly be!

It was a great way to get my start in the bridesmaid world!

      Oh my word. Y’all are going to love this sweet couple, and I think you’ll especially love the video messages they sent to each other the morning of their wedding which Caravan Cinema Co. kindly included in their highlights film for our enjoyment. If you’re already married, I think they’ll bring you right back to the rush of emotions from the morning of your own wedding (I know they did for me!). If you’re not yet married, you’ll probably get butterflies in your stomach and a happy little smile on your face just picturing it! Please enjoy…

      From the bride, Carly:

      There is something about video that brings a day to life even more than photographs can themselves. For this, we are grateful that Jon and Jacob at Caravan Cinema Co. captured our day so we could hang on to it a little tighter for years to come. My dad said this short film was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen and that he could watch it 1000 times over again — and we feel the exact same way. Caravan captured every Southern, rustic detail and each meaningful moment that happened in between frames in a way that would not otherwise have been captured. And, it is so “Carolina,” which is special to us, as Chapel Hill is where our unexpected love story all began.

      Thank you so much, Caravan! Have a wonderful weekend, belles!

        Thank you for making me cry. Those messages they sent each other are adorable. This is why I love weddings so much. While others are cynical about marriage and love, people like Carly and Allen make you smile because you feel their love for each other and give you hope that real love does exists. Congratulations on your big day! It looked like a super fun wedding.
