Keith & Sami – Married at The Atrium by Ligon Flynn {Downtown Wilmington NC Wedding Photographers}

I’ve been looking forward to Keith & Sami’s wedding all year!  It was the most perfect wedding to end my 2014 wedding season with…. especially since Keith is my cousin and most of my family were guests!  I’m not always so keen on taking on a close friend or family member’s wedding, but Keith & Sami didn’t have to ask twice.  He’s always been like a little brother, my actual brother was the best man, my sister in law was a bridesmaid, and we all just love Sami… so yes, I couldn’t wait to capture this day and I’m so in love with the images 🙂

The girls and boys all got ready at The City Club in Downtown Wilmington, NC which is just a gorgeous setting for getting ready photos.  The wedding ceremony was a few doors down at The Atrium by Ligon Flynn (also gorgeous!).  And the reception was just a couple blocks away at 128 South (also fantastic!).

Be sure to watch the slideshow to see the full story of their day, and then scroll down to see my most favorite images…

My Uncle’s Granddaughter, Savannah, came up to me once the dancing started for the night and said she was bored and wanted to help me work.  First I had her walking around with my flash unit, but then I set her up with one of my backup cameras and let her shoot to her heart’s content.  Good thing I did, she captured more than a handful of gems… this next image is of her and then the next two images after that are hers!  Way to go Savannah!
