Roxana has become a near and dear friend of mine over the course of the past year or so. We had first started out as business buddies. Roxana & her mother Maria, both run the Highgrove Estate, a gorgeous wedding venue, and also a beautiful bed & breakfast, Chateau Bellevie, both in Fuquay-Varina. I had attended a few of their venue food tastings to showcase my photography and throughout the process, myself, Roxana & her family have become very close. I can easily say that I love them as if they were my own family.

Roxana and Jonny, to me, are exactly perfect for each other. I watch Roxy’s mom & dad call each other pet names like “mama, tata, and papi” and notice that Jonny and her are doing the same thing with each other. It’s so cute it makes me sick. And speaking of sick, I fell sicker than I’ve ever been the morning of Roxana’s wedding. I woke up with extreme nausea after which I shortly thereafter “relieved” and then my husband tells me I proceeded to completely pass out for about 4 minutes or so, in which I’ve never fainted for that long before. To be honest, I was in a slight panic. I did not feel any relief. I was nauseous, I had 0% energy, and could barely function. I called a few of my fellow local photographers to see if anyone could come and fill in for me. It was the 10/10/10 weekend, so of course no one was available. By the way, thank you Candice for taking time out of your day to call photographers for me that day. You were a real angel. And a huge thank you goes to my husband Alin & Ashley for sticking by me throughout the day, dealing with my “issues” and really doing the very best they could to make my job easier. We never did find a replacement, so I tried very hard to suck it up and let the adrenaline rush take over and occupy my mind. I made it. We made it. And here is what we came up with. Roxana & Jonny’s wedding took place at the insanely gorgeous Barclay Villa in Angier, NC. Enjoy and leave some love below!
