Abby & Carson are married! They make SUCH a beautiful couple!!

I second shot their wedding for Carly Hinson Photography back in July and adored every moment of it! They had so many special touches that they incorporated into their wedding, making it truly a night to remember.

They were married at Portofino in Clayton, and it was absolutely stunning. The venue sits upon a horse ranch with rolling hills and a large pond. The property had an Italian charm in the country setting, with majestic trees and large pastures. The ceremony space was absolutely stunning, and the reception space was perfect for Abby, Carson, and their friends and family to dance the night away.

A few of my favorite touches from the day were:

Abby & her dad riding to the ceremony in a carriage being pulled by a beautiful horse, and then Abby & Carson taking a private horse and carriage ride after the ceremony for a moment alone

A special guest of Abby & Carson sang a beautiful love song during their wedding ceremony

Carson played guitar and sang a song that he wrote to Abby during the reception. I'm not sure if there was a dry eye in the room!

Abby's younger brother gave the sweetest speech. I love when kiddos give speeches at weddings, it is so touching. I may have cried again during this!

The reception space was decorated so beautifully, and the cake was immaculate!

Shared below are some of my favorite photos from Abby & Carson's Portofino wedding in Clayton, North Carolina.
