JESSE + JULIA / by Bobby Whitmire

One of my favorite things to do before a wedding is to tour the venue with the bride and groom. This gives me the ability to plan some posed photos ahead of time, meet the day-of coordinator, and, most importantly, I get to know the bride and groom a little better.


Julia and Jesse are having a mid-September ceremony at Carolina Country Weddings in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina. We have mutual friends and had consulted prior to the tour, so I had a good idea of what they were looking for. The venue is gorgeous. There are 5 locations within in the venue to say your “I-Do’s” and Julia and Jesse have chosen to say theirs at the Meadow Views. This location fits their style to a T.


To mark the occasion, I snapped a few photos of the couple. I am counting down the days on my calendar for this wedding! It’s going to be breathtaking!
