Concord NC Ritchie Hill Wedding

From the photographer: I don't even know where to begin telling you about Val & Coop's wedding day! I could start by sharing about Val's STUNNING silver gown. Or by telling you about how thoughtful and sentimental each and every detail was. Or I could even share about the sweet flower girls and ring bearer. But no matter where I begin, I am confident I will never be able to put into words just how special Val & Coop's wedding was. Not one single detail was overlooked the entire day, and it was an absolute dream! I don't think my eyes were truly dry the entire day because it was so emotional.

When I was talking with Val a few months ago, she said to me... "I want all of my guests to feel loved by us. I want it to be a big love fest of mushy feelings and happy tears. I want to create memories!" If that doesn't tell you about Val and Coop's heart, I don't know what will! Their wedding day accomplished every single thing they hoped it would. People laughed, cried, and joyfully celebrated the two newlyweds!

My favorite part of this wedding was how thoughtful each detail of the day was. Many of the gifts given were in honor and memory of Val's father, and every time she gave a special guest a gift in his honor, many tears were shed! She wore beautiful jewelry made from her father's shirts, gave special men in her life tie tacks made from his ties, and embroidered handkerchiefs made from his button downs. He may not have been physically present at the wedding, but he was absolutely there in spirit. So many pieces of their day honored and remembered how special he was to them. He passed away recently, so this was very emotional for them.
