Tim Dillon and Betsey Haywood met while in college at Davidson. They both played sports throughout college and their love of competition, as well as how they always make each other laugh, drew them together. They continue to have a wonderful time together and now live in Charlotte. They tied the knot on September 4, 2010 at Betsey’s childhood home in Durham, North Carolina. The reception was held just up the street at the Hope Valley Country Club. Congratulations to Tim and Betsey Dillon!

Tim and Betsey purchased the Large Story Book. This is what Betsey had to say about it:
The album is PERFECT!!!!!! Thank you so much!!! The pictures are even better in real life and I can’t stop looking at the album. Tim loves it too!!! Thanks for being such a wonderful photographer – we loved working with you so much. You really could not have done a better job and you made the whole experience so enjoyable.
In her wedding photography planning form Martha Rundles said of her fiancee, Steve Palmer, “Steve and I have been searching for each other for a long time.” That in a nut shell was the theme of this June 13, 2009 wedding at Duke Chapel with a reception at the Hope Valley Country Club.
I had heard during the reception toasts and just from listening to friends and family throughout the day that both sides of this couple are wonderful individuals with rich lives that include close families and friends. But that neither of them was willing to settle on just anyone. They knew what they wanted and when they met in New York in October of 2007 they quickly become a solid couple.
You can see a SLIDESHOW of their wedding story set to their first dance song, It Had to be You.

The ladies got ready at Martha’s mother’s house. Margo Rundles has three cats who were in many photos. This cat in particular had been stalking the dress for days, hoping to get a chance to check it out. But Margo had wisely kept the bedroom door closed, thus thwarting his intentions. Well, during the chaos of getting ready he snuck in and we found him just as Martha was about to put her dress on.
Steve and Martha decided to do all of their formal portraits before the ceremony. This was the moment they saw each other the first time on their wedding day. I have been noticing that more and more couples are choosing to get all of their formal portraits out of the way prior to the ceremony so that they can have even more time at their reception. Perhaps this is a new trend?
This image is one of my panoramas. Basically I take 10 to 20 photos in quick succession and then sew them together in photoshop. It is a great way to capture the grandeur of Duke Chapel!
After sending out the slideshow to Martha, Steve and Margo I heard this back:
WOW!!! They are incredible!! I am so impressed! I couldn’t be more thrilled. We got back yesterday from Greece and have been a little sad today thinking that our wedding is behind us, so looking at these is such a boost! I have already looked at the whole show twice and plan to do it many more times tonight and over the next few days. Thank you so very much. You were a delight to work with and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results of your hard work! We will be forever indebted to you for this incredible gift. Thank you.
From Martha’s mom, Margo:
Wow from Margo. I think they are fantastic and they capture so much of the wedding feeling. I love them. I was away all day today so I’ve only had one crack at them, but I will play them over and over again. Kristin, I’ve now had a chance to look at these 100 times and they are such fabulous photographs. They captured the emotions we were feeling through that afternoon and evening. I love them all. Margo
