It was a great day in Hickory, NC this past Saturday, Oct. 23 at the wedding of Jessie Moore and Ryan Varley. Jessie and Ryan met at NC State and are both currently working on hog farms in Eastern North Carolina. Needless to say, they didn't mind laying down on the ground for the above photo (in fact, it was Jessie's idea!) Also, the bride's mother is the owner of 1859 Cafe, who catered Saturday's events and the food was delicious!
I met Jessie and Ryan last year at the wedding of Julie and Wes Cameron. Ryan proposed to Jessie on Valentines day in 2009 in Blowing Rock. They are currently honeymooning in Valle Crucis.
I had so much fun with Jessie and Ryan and their friends and family! Here are some highlights from their wedding day:
We started the day at Scruples Salon.
The dress by Amsale (below). and I loved the "I do" shoes and gorgeous custom jewelry (below).

Carolina Productions and Entertainment did a great job as both DJs and Videographers for the event.
Congratulations Jessie and Ryan!! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
Another big thanks to my assistant, Brittany, who did a great job! Thanks Brittany!
