Proximity Hotel Greensboro Wedding


June 23, 2016

Hi there! Welcome to the  journal about our lives, travels, fashion, and style. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Amy.


This gorgeous Proximity Hotel Greensboro wedding takes a special place in my heart.  I grew up around many military men, worked and played across the street from The Naval Academy in Annapolis…and I am still so honored to be in the presence of the brave men and women that protect our country every chance I get.  This was a different wedding, Ashley and Donnie’s second wedding…to each other.  As with so many other couples, they are forced to spend long spans of time apart.  Before Donnie was deployed last year they decided to elope at the courthouse and “make it official”.  They are both driven, intelligent people…who are madly in love and wouldn’t let a bit of distance get in their way.  So this was their celebration of their love and marriage.  A chance for their families and friends to join them in the love they share for each other.

Getting ready for the wedding at The Proximity Hotel Greensboro

Ashley earned an A+ for her preparations before the wedding.  She did the beautiful florals herself, with help from her close friends and family.  She had every.single.detail set out and organized for us the minute we walked into her suite at The Proximity Hotel.  Her crafty bridesmaids had even called down to engineering to have someone come up and hang Ashley’s gown in a beautiful spot…all before I arrived.  It was like walking into a photographer’s dream.  This simple act of preparation literally started our day off on such a great note, and makes my job so much easier.  I can’t thank Ashley and her girls enough for this!

We were able to photograph the beautiful invitation suite, shoes, rings and groom’s gift all while laughing and enjoying such wonderful company.  The couple shared a first look and then we were able to shoot all the family portraits before the ceremony so that everyone could relax at the cocktail hour afterwards.  Ashley and Donnie are affectionate and fun to be around, and constantly steal kisses 😉

Ashley & Donnie’s gorgeous military wedding at the W on Elm

The W on Elm is a new venue in Greensboro and has such charm!  The wedding was outside on the brick patio and the inside was decorated with touches of navy, gold and white.  I know sometimes people think that photographers are constantly telling people to twirl around, dip and kiss…but honestly these two were just THAT adorable.  Ashley wore the perfect gown to spin and they fully embraced it!  Plenty of military dips were had and several moments where Donnie literally swept Ashley off her feet.  It was such a joy to photograph this couple…I can’t wait to see what the next 1000 years brings to them!
