Classic Southern Wedding at Rose Hill Plantation Kelley + Perry | Rocky Mount, North Carolina

From the moment Kelley inquired and told me all about her Southern inspired wedding dreams to her engagement session in downtown Wilmington all the way until the big day last weekend…I’ve been excited about this wedding the entire year! Perry also proposed in Charleston after a dinner at my all-time favorite restaurant (Magnolia’s!!), so I’d say we were kindred spirits from day one 😉

Kelley and Perry hosted their incredible wedding day at Rose Hill Plantation in North Carolina. When we pulled up the most gorgeous, Southern inspired venue, I think my heart melted right then and there!! The blush colored details; soft, simple florals and classic Southern elegance were consistent throughout every part of their wedding day. Their family and friends gathered from all over to celebrate their marriage and it was a beautiful, joyful day all around!

Kelley and Perry: thank you both so much for inviting me into such a special time of your lives! It was an absolute privilege to be a part of your wedding day and to capture such a beautiful love between you two. I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon and love these images as much as I do!
