May weddings have a unique charm of their own, and when it's a sweet and simple celebration set against the backdrop of Lake Gaston, the magic truly comes alive. Kara and Colin's day was a family affair taking place at the bride's grandmother's lake house. It was a day filled with love, joy, and unforgettable moments.

While every moment of the day was beautiful, the true gems of this wedding were captured during the ceremony. The looks shared by Kara and Colin as their family friend presided over and as they said their vows were a study in the full spectrum of human expression. From ebullient smiles to something profound reflected in their eyes, it was evident that their love was deep and true. Being able to witness and document these fleeting moments is a privilege that we hold dear.

For Kara, having the opportunity to celebrate one of the biggest moments of her life with Colin at a place she still calls home, where she took her first steps, made the day all the more meaningful.

The bride's grandmother's lake house held a special place in her heart, and its sentimental value added an extra layer of sweetness to the occasion. Their day on Lake Gaston was a testament to the power of love, family, and the beauty of simplicity. It was a day that will forever be etched in their hearts and in the photographs that capture its magic. It's weddings like these that remind us of why we love being wedding photographers – because we can freeze moments in time and allow couples to relive their special day for years to come.
