Darrell + Crystal | New Bern, NC

There are times when photographing weddings take me to places I’ve never been before.  That’s exciting.  But to return to a place I once called home and work as a New Bern wedding photographer for the first time is equally exciting.  You see, Darrel & Crystal wedded in New Bern, NC just last month and I had the privilege to document their wedding day.  To call it a privilege can come across as cliche.  In fact, I find it a privilege to photograph all of my clients weddings.  But this wedding has special meaning for me in so many ways.  As I mentioned, I once lived in New Bern.  I’ve even attended Dayspring Ministries during my short stay in New Bern while attending the local community college.  However I had not worked as a New Bern wedding photographer until now, because my time there was just before my photography business was birthed in 1998.  But there is more to the privilege because of the friendship between Crystal and my wife.  As I look back on the days when I first laid eyes on my wife, I often saw her sitting on the same pew with Crystal.  They were both attending UNC Chapel Hill at the time.  Part of the campus ministry outreach of the Upper Room.  Friends, as well as sister’s in Christ.  Yes, this wedding day was more than providing photographs for another client, my sister was getting married.

On this day Darrell and Crystal became husband and wife.  And to my delight, they allotted about one hour for photographs at the Tryon Palace in downtown New Bern, NC after their ceremony.  Darrell surprised Crystal with a horse drawn carriage to carry them to Tryon Palace.  He then proceeded to pick her up and carry her from the carriage to the curb just before entering the palace.  Chivalry is alive and well represented by Darrell.

I hope you enjoy the images from their wedding day as much as I enjoyed capturing them.    If so, please let the newlyweds know by clicking on like buttons below.  And feel free to leave them a short message of well wishes in the comments section below.  Without further delay, I present Darrell & Crystal wedding day preview.
