TROIE + MICHELLE | WEDDING
Destination Wedding in Pinehurst, NC / Pinehurst Wedding Photographer
I first met Troie & Michelle the Monday before their wedding. We met in downtown Pinehurst at Dugan's Pub with Nicole, their Wedding Planner. After over a year of planning and then COVID re-planning, a possible hurricane was going to change their plans once again. Michelle and Troie were wonderful through it all and, with tears in Michelle's eyes and Troie's reassuring "go-aheads" they pressed on with their dream of a celebration on his family's private farm. From there the chance of rain went from 90% to 40% and we were all 100% in on making this wedding day fabulous. And it was so much more than fabulous. This couple is amazing...more so than I can possibly describe through words. They exude so much joy that you can't help to burst out in laughter and shed a few tears. Their family and friends gathered to witness their "I do's" and it is quite apparent how loved these two individuals are. Troie had two best men...identical twins that he grew up with and shared so many moments with...their roast was the sweetest in history. Michelle's mother, father, and step father all shared how these two were meant to be together.
There were too many favorite parts of this day...the first looks with the brother and fathers was so precious. Troie was stunned by his bride during their first look...then circled around her in amazement with an excited "Go-ahead!". Their ceremony was moved up by 20 minutes due to rain and the rain held off until the first kiss (YAY!). There was their first dance, their garter removal (where I honestly thought Troie consumed the garter) and Troie's singing Motley Crue's "Without You" (which I still have in my head...thanks). It was truly an amazing day and one of my favorite weddings of all time! Troie and Michelle, congratulations! Here are a few of my favorites...here is to many years of singing, laughing, and being a joy to everyone you meet.
