Chris + Andrew's Carrigan Farms Rock Quarry Wedding

Chris and Andrew’s wedding took place at an immaculate rock quarry at Carrigan Farms in Mooresville, North Carolina this fall. I arrived incredibly early to the venue (a regular pre-wedding habit of mine) and fell in love with the rocky cliffs and turquoise water easily snapping nearly 200 photos of the rock quarry alone. It was the perfect location for their wedding! The ceremony was held on a sandy area surrounded by the beauty of nature and the love of their families.

Andrew and Chris complement each other so well. They are both extremely kind, intelligent, and absolutely hilarious. Chris did much of the wedding planning (and even the floral arrangements) so the details were all very them – from the Mason jars to the champagne on their sweetheart table was from Thibaut-Janisson Winery in Charlottesville (Chris is a UVA alum).

There was one part of the wedding that absolutely blew my mind that could not be conveyed in photographs... Have you ever heard a string quartet play Nicki Minaj? Crown String Quartet played the most amazing a custom set list ever for this wedding:
