Seven Paths Manor Wedding

Jolene and Ben are married! Their Seven Paths Manor wedding was so intentional and special. I am so excited to share some of their beautiful day on the blog today! They were surrounded by a crowd of their closest friends and family at the beautiful Seven Paths Manor. It was so fun to spend the best moments of their day with them.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jolene and Ben back in August of this year for their engagement session. If you missed their quintessential Raleigh wedding engagement session at Dorothea Dix park be sure to check it out here.

Seven Paths Manor Wedding

Weather can always make things a little stressful. However, when you choose a venue as beautiful as Seven Paths Manor in Spring Hope, NC there is no shortage of photo opportunities. A little rain on Jolene and Ben’s wedding day did not stop us from getting some *stunning* photos! It just so happens that once the ceremony started we got one more big burst of rain and then everything cleared up. We were able to toodle around the sprawling property to get couples portraits at all the best spots. Just in time for golden hour! We even got to snuggle some horses (if you don’t know – I’m a horse girl so totally here for that).

Moments I loved

  • I loved the moments that Jolene and Ben shared during their first look. There is just something about getting to be with your person before the big moment that can just make you feel so reassured. The weather was not on our side and we made quick changes on our feet but once they got to see each other and be together – smooth sailing. The first look is such a special way to remind you what and who you are doing all of this for.
  • The DETAILS. You can see Jolene’s touch on literally every single thing – from menus and signage to florals and the cake – she personalized everything to their taste, personality, and story.
  • The intention! Each part of the wedding day was filled with intention and heartfelt moments. I love that both Jolene and Ben gave each other similar gifts (without even knowing!) It was a true and genuine testament to how well they know each other. Every aspect and detail of their day was simply them and I loved it!
