Amy McGraw, the coordinator and owner behind Do Me a Favor Weddings had an idea for a styled shoot. The vision behind this shoot was to be unique and out-of-the-ordinary with a confident bridal party. She recruited a team of amazing wedding vendors to bring this idea to life. Between the bridesmaid "bouquets" tied around their ankles, the modern atmosphere from Wrightsville Manor infused with the vintage furniture from Relic Vintage Rentals, the eclectic and colorful yummies from A Thyme Savor, the bow-tie loosely hanging over the groom and the sassy bridal gown from Coastal Knot, Amy wanted to show her future and current clients that you don't have to have a "normal" run-of-the-mill wedding. In fact, you you can have your bridesmaids in shorts or a gorgeous gown that dips so low that your grandma would raise her eyebrows. The fact remains: it's your wedding and it's time to make those dreams come true. One of the biggest regrets couples have after weddings is not having more of a say because they are pleasing so many different family members. Don't have that regret and make your once-in-a-lifetime wedding, a happy memory you'll cherish forever. A big thanks to everyone in the dream team for being amazing to work with!

The moment I photographed Magaly and Andy wrapped this flag, I knew that I'd share these images on the 4th because it's a reminder of what this holiday is all about. Andy's service is one of the reasons we feel safe in this beautiful country. Thank you Andy, the many soldiers just like him and the equally brave wives and husbands + family members out there for sharing your loved ones with our country. Let freedom ring (double pun) and Happy 4th! Congrats again to these lovebirds!
