Ryan + Gwen: Full Moon Resort
I don’t think I can find the words to express how special Gwen + Ryan’s day was. I’ve traveled all over the country over the past two years and with being a father and husband, it’s gotten a little tiring as of late. Every time I leave Raleigh, it gets harder and harder to go, and most of it is due to my time away.
This wedding at Full Moon Resort was just one of those days that gives me such a sweet reminder at how lucky I am to do what I do. This intimate outdoor wedding was the perfect way to spend a Saturday, and if you ever want to know how to party, grab some musicians and let ‘em loose in the woods.
Gwen and Ryan, I’d wish you all the happiness in the world, but you’ve already got it covered.
