Cassie & Josh’s Sweet & Simple Apex Wedding

I wasn’t sure what to expect when Andi invited me out to shoot with her for Cassie & Josh’s wedding in Apex, NC but geez, was it ever a looker! The September day dawned bright and not too warm and the private residence they used for the venue was stunning. Cassie & Josh are both young, gorgeous, and totally in love. Josh’s little girl is also freaking adorable (proof further on in the post). Their day was filled to the brim with laughter, fun, and so much sweetness it’ll give you a toothache (forgive the cliche)! Now, on with the pretty!!

Josh is also in the service, so his bag made a special appearance in the guy’s getting ready room.

That BBQ was AWESOME. Not as awesome as Stephanie’s 12 Bones BBQ though!

The ring bearer and flower girl before…and the poor flower basket after.

They did it! And I am still not over those adorable happy faces!

We grabbed them for a couple quick shots before the reception started. Again, with the happy faces!

Someone was a little excited about his ring!

And then this happened. Their first dance was to Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” which I honestly thought was overplayed…until Josh started singing the words to Cassie and I melted into a puddle.

Cassie & her father had a wonderful dance which lead into another adorable dance partner for Josh, his daughter.

She already knows how to work the camera…she’s going to be trouble!

Josh finished up the first dances with his mother and a puddle I became once again. Such a touching bond between the two of them!

Now, for one of the messiest cake cuttings I’ve ever seen.

In between messy cakes and dancing, Josh gave a very sweet (and funny!) toast thanking everyone. Of course the photo on the right has nothing to do with the speech. It’s just there to remind you how GORGEOUS this couple!

So not only did this little girl know JUST how to work the camera, apparently she can bust out some sweet dance moves too!

This wedding was so sweetly put together and SO fun. Who knew an Apex wedding could be so pretty and simple? I wish Cassie & Josh nothing but many years of as much sweetness as they can get and thank you to Andi for having me along to shoot! I look forward to many more 🙂

Wishing you messy cakes,

Shantelle
