Bride and Groom ring shot at the Oaks at Salem in Apex, NC
I just love the reception of a wedding. The tense anticipation before the ceremony is all gone and there is nothing to do but cut a rug, have a couple drinks, and celebrate the union of the bride and groom. One of the highlights from Dave and Jesse’s reception was when they took the photo booth props out onto the dance floor. Be sure to check out their wedding preparations, ceremony, portraits, and details.

Wedding Portraits: Dave & Jesse | The Oaks at Salem

Groom gazes into bride's eyes at the Oaks at Salem in Apex, NC
One thing that stands out to me about Dave and Jesse is just how tender they are to one another. Jesse mentioned that touch is one of her love languages and so it is a powerful communication between her and Dave. It really shows in the way that they hold one another, you can tell how important that connection is between them. It definitely made for an easy portraits portion of the wedding day! Be sure to check out their wedding preparations and ceremony as well.
