Chris and Lynley’s Sweet New Bern, NC Real Wedding by Open Aperture Photography

This sweet, traditional wedding on the lawn of a brick estate (that used to be the North Carolina governor’s residence) was almost rained out, but luckily the bad weather held off until the guests were partying under the reception tent.  I’ve got to say, I am such a fan of Lynley’s gorgeous dress with cap-sleeved, lace shirt (and I am completely in love with the multitude of tiny buttons up the back).  Thank you to Open Aperture Photography for sharing this lovely afternoon with us!
