Wedding Story: Amber and Kris

It's officially wedding season for us here at Story Photographers! Saturday we kicked off 2010 with a fun, family filled wedding in Jacksonville, NC. Amber is David's cousin- the baby girl on that side of David's family. Everyone in the family was so excited to welcome Kris into the Teeter/Troupe/Hancock gang. Some people told us they thought we should have an easy since we were shooting for family- this was true in that not a thing went wrong and everyone was so genuinely happy for these two. However it was very important to me to still give Amber and Kris quality photography because HELLO I have to live with these people forever :) So not only do you get to see Amber and Kris' wedding day story, you also get a glimpse of David's sweet family!

I count 4 Ambers in this one...
... HELLO her hair looked rockin'

If you have been following this blog for awhile you know that I just love a man that can sow some emotion... there were plenty of those men at this wedding!
Look at how precious Kris was when he saw Amber come down the aisle...

I do not have many regrets so far in my short life
but I do regret not dancing with my Dad when he was alive...
Amber and her Daddy had everyone in tears!

When David showed me this cake shot he took I wanted to kiss him.
I think I did.

Being the best man and catching the garter is hard work.

DISCLAIMER: I personally can't stand cigarette smoke...
however, Amber is a smoker and so I just had to work
in the badass factor with her laying on that bar!

Amber and Kris: Hope you are lounging on the beaches of Key West soaking up the sun for us up here in NC! David and I were so excited to be such a big part of your beautiful wedding day.
