carmen & matt | concord, nc wedding part 2

Welcome back! We have more awesomesauce from Carmen & Matt’s big day!! Time for their reception and let me tell you, we have found a new favorite place! This was the first time we had ever shot at The Lodge in Concord. I believe they opened it up for weddings last year and take a limited number per year. Lori and her family run the Lodge and they do such an amazing job! I literally asked Steven at least a dozen times while we were there if possibly we could just move there with Lori and her kids! The Lodge is a gorgeous farm that has a newly finished barn which Carmen & Matt had their reception in. It has that “barn” feel but is so nice and there is so much you could do here, goodness! You will see, I became obsessed with trying to take pictures of the chicken and the rooster:)Okay I will hush for now about it but not for long:)

Want to know one of my other favorite things about The Lodge??? THEY HAVE A TREEHOUSE!! I kid you not! I was so excited! Steven and I are obsessed with the treehouse show on tv so when they told us about this I was just beside myself! ha. Couples can even spend the night in the “honeymoon suite” after their wedding there? Can we just get married again so we can do this?!?carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0110carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0116carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0117We snuck inside the treehouse for some sweet portraits.carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0111carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0112carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0113carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0115Some of their sweet reception details in the barn…carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0120carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0119carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0118carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0124carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0139carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0125their reaction to seeing their reception room for the first time!carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0121and how they feel about it….carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0122carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0126carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0123carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0134carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0137Even the restrooms are cute!carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0138carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0140carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0141carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0142carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0143carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0144carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0145carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0146carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0148carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0149carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0150carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0151carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0152carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0153carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0154carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0156carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0157carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0158carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0159carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0160carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0161carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0162carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0163carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0164carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0165carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0167carmen & matt concord nc wedding photography | smitten & hooked_0168to cap off the night we snuck out and took a couple portraits before we left….i’m so glad we did!

carmen & matt | concord, nc wedding part 1

If we could shoot a wedding like Carmen & Matt’s we would! Casual and all about their love and their families! Carmen has two precious little boys and Matt has an older son as well and I loved watching them all together! Carmen and Matt were high school sweethearts. After high school they kinda went their own separate ways and lived life. Then later, fate happened and they got back together and from that moment on they have been inseparable.

When you are around these two you absolutely feel their connection radiating! It was such an awesome day we were thrilled to be a part of!

I love that they chose this church to get married in because Carmen’s sweet parents are getting ready to celebrate their 40th anniversary and got married in this same church!

denim house is our jam

So I might love to shop….and so does Mr Randall. Yes we love good clothes and so when our friend Tia told us about her new store she was opening we couldn’t have been more excited! We took pictures of the amazing store, the interior is gorgeous! Since we stepped foot in the store I have been telling Steven that those are the floors I want to have in our new house one day! Check out the details from the shoot at the store! The brands they carry and the variety of clothing and accessories is to die for! We came back a couple days later with our friend and stylist, Lindsey Regan Thorne to put some fun and fresh summer looks together….

babies, babies and more babies

We have had babies on the brain! Lots of babies! We get asked a lot if we still do lifestyle photography and the answer is YES! While our primary focus is wedding photography we still LOVE photographing sweet new babies and families and everything in between! We have photographed so many lately we decided to combine this blog post with a handful of baby shoots that we have done the past month or so:)We have even more to share coming up too but I have been super Miss slacker on the blog front lately and I am sorry! Wedding season is upon us friends which means several things. (A) we have so many amazing pictures to share soon (B) we are out of control busy right now (C) we still love you and want to blog it all:)

Enjoy today friends.

The Bigham family is so super special to us! I have known Ashley since we were young and we have been photographing her family since we started in photography in 2010! Now they welcome a sweet baby girl to their lives and we couldn’t be more excited for them!
