Hey there!

Josh + Oriana | A NC Church Wedding

This beautiful church wedding was the kick-off to my fall 2019 wedding season and it was such a great way to start off!

Josh and Oriana are two of the sweetest people! They are kind, understanding, and full of love for both their friends and family. During their wedding, I saw so many people come and support them; honestly, it made my heart so full. (If you haven’t seen their engagement photos yet, click here)

A quick bit of backstory, Josh and Oriana went to the same church for YEARS and never met each other.

Through an online dating app, they finally connected and then realized they had been going to the same church for a long time! Talk about meant to be!

Their story is beautiful because through their church they not only found community and all these amazing people, but they found each other. 

The family portraits part of their day was extra long because they had so many people who loved them and wanted to be with them. And honestly who can feel anything other than happy to see all the love!

During speeches, all everyone could talk about was how amazed they were that things had worked out the way they had. Everyone was just so glad the two connected.

Their wedding was so fun and creative! They had shaved ice served to the guests outside and had a very fun bubble exit to send them off!

Josh and Oriana love to laugh together, share inside jokes with each other, and just be together. I’m so happy I was able to be there to capture their beautiful day!
