Southern Weddings // What a beautiful wedding day for Kindra + Roger! Arriving at the rustic and quite adorable Longstraw Farms in Ayden, NC was such a treat. Sandy, the owner of the farm is such a delight and made this the perfect venue. As soon as you walk up, you are welcomed by the hand calligraphy signs.
The ceremony spot under the grandfather oaks are filled with restored vintage church pews. Under the great oak is a romantic swing which made for a fun photo moment. Walking in a bit further, is Roger’s very own classic 1973 Volkswagen Beetle. This vintage themed classic couple make me swoon. The bride even wore pearls from her great grandmother, which were purchased in Japan by her great grandfather. I knew right away that this was going to be a day to remember. This sweet couple were a joy.
