Caroline and Will’s wedding at The Arbors in Cleveland,NC (near Lake Norman) was our first wedding of 2018 and let me tell you it was the perfect way to start our year off. We couldn’t have asked for a better couple and a better group of family and friends than these guys. And don’t get me started on the venue…Wow! It was our first time at the Arbors and we were completely blown away by all of the epic spots for photos. And did I mention that there was still snow on the ground from a recent 7 inches that they received earlier in the week, but it was 60 degrees outside! Literally perfect weather. This really was such an amazing day and we felt so at home at this event and enjoyed meeting some new friends! I can’t wait to share these images so please enjoy !
