Junebug: What three adjectives best describe your wedding?
Samantha and Eric: Personal, fun, unique.
Junebug: What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day?
Samantha and Eric: We decided early on that since were paying for it (parents had little financial involvement), were gonna do what we want. We had our favorite foods, our favorite drinks, our favorite snacks. We love the outdoors, so we had the wedding at St. James Farm. We had our favorite music as key parts of our wedding ceremony.
Junebug: Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding?
Samantha and Eric: Our rice krispy cake was awesome! Along with our dinner vendor Seoul Taco! When it really comes down to it, its all about the people. We had our close friends and family supporting us and cheering us on. To be able to share that moment with those close to us was the best!
Junebug: What specifically drew you to DWJohnson Studio and their imagery?
Eric: Well, Ive seen their photos before and I instantly was drawn to them. They have an intimate personal feel that draws you into the photo. Not to mention they are willing to work with and do whatever creative and unique ideas you have for photos. The DWJ team was just as excited as we were to shoot the photos with us.
