Anne Springs Close Greenway wedding portraits

wedding inspiration in peach orchard at Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill, SCI ran across another wedding inspiration portrait session from last year in the gorgeous peach tree orchards around Anne Springs Close Greenway and the Dairy Barn in Fort Mill, SC, that I shot along with the awesome and talented Julia Laible.  I’m so excited it’s time for these beautiful orchards to start blooming again.

 

Aisha Thomas events styled a lovely peach blossom themed tablescape for us.  Aubre’s Bridal supplied the gorgeous bridal accessories, and Simply Beautiful Artistry by Sissy Duncan beautified our already gorgeous model.

Night photography is my favorite-I love the drama and wow factor of these shots.  It’s definitely worth it to sneak out of the reception around sunset or a little after to get these kind of wedding images.

Charlotte wedding photographer-bridal portraits {Haley} Belmont, NC

  I’m so excited to finally be able to share Haley’s beautiful bridal portraits taken in downtown Belmont, NC!  Her wedding at Separk Mansion in Gastonia, NC was gorgeous and I can’t wait to be able to post those, too…

What I especially love is that Haley is wearing her mother’s wedding gown!  She had the top redone a bit to modernize it-and that incredible long veil is also her mother’s original wedding veil she wore in her own wedding… *sigh*

DSBG wedding {Katrina and Taaq}

Katrina and Taaq came from New York City to celebrate their wedding day at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont, NC.  Raleigh natives, Katrina and Taaq met while attending UNC Chapel Hill before moving to NYC.  They came back south to celebrate with the many friends and family that still live in this area, but drew a crowd to their wedding from all over the Eastern seaboard.

It was a gorgeous day for a wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, but even when thunderclouds threatened a storm just as Katrina walked down the aisle, nothing could change the huge smiles on their faces! Luckily, the rain held off until they were announced as husband and wife at the reception, so they had a gorgeous outdoor wedding ceremony!

 

We left off last week’s wedding Wednesday post during the wedding ceremony, so here we are again, starting at the first kiss!

We got a few minutes after the ceremony, before the rain, to stroll the DSBG grounds, take a few photos, and let them enjoy a few moments together as husband and wife… It was an absolutely perfect day for a wedding.

The reception set up was done to perfection by Creative Solutions Special Events, with catering by Best Impressions Caterer, and the awesomeness that is Split Second Sound as DJ.

Though I hear he’s normally a pretty reserved person, you would have never known it by seeing Taaq during the reception!  He surprised his new bride Katrina with a serenade, complete with dance routine!  He also had some crazy awesome moves on the dance floor, including some splits!

Erica and Jesse Wedding

Erica and Jesse met in Atlanta in their junior year of college, and have been inseparable ever since.  They celebrated their love for each other with a beautiful beach wedding at Shell Island Resort in lovely Wilmington, NC.

Erica and Jesse opted to do a ‘first look’ and see each other across from the resort in the marsh before the wedding ceremony.  They loved having those minutes together to talk and relax before the wedding, and also opted to do their family portraits beforehand as well, so they could get to their reception shortly after!

Charlotte NC wedding photographer { Heather and Adam } engagement session

  I’m so excited to share Heather and Adam’s engagement session–such a sweet couple!  They will be getting married  this June at a gorgeous family residence. 

They were originally uncertain whether or not to do engagement portraits, but I convinced them. ;)  I’m glad they were up for anything (including a little light painting-always fun!) I think the e-session is so important to your wedding photography, I always give a session with any wedding booking.  It gives us a chance to get to know each other a little more, and loosen you up in front of the camera before the big day.

NC Bridal Session {Nicole} Duke Mansion

  Nicole recently wed her longtime sweetheart in uptown Charlotte, so I can finally show her fabulous bridal portraits we took at The Duke Mansion! 

wedding photographer in CharlotteFirst off, I have to share these gorgeous shoes from my absolute favorite shoe designer–Christian Louboutin!  You can’t go wrong on your wedding day (or any other day, really!) with some red-soled glittery goodness!

How amazing is this custom pink sapphire engagement ring?  I am a total sucker for a pink ring (mine is kind of the opposite of this-clear center diamond with 2 pink diamonds flanking it–but I adore this gorgeous groom-designed ring!)

Vintage love inspiration wedding shoot {The Arbors Events}

I LOVED photographing this sweet teal and pink vintage love inspired wedding session Blush Weddings and Events created at the gorgeous The Arbors Events in Cleveland, NC.  We showcased incredible bridal headpieces from Charlotte’s own Trulu Couture, and the gorgeous bouquet and floral arrangements came from Bella Grace Floral in Cornelius, NC.  The over the top, ridiculously gorgeous cake came from Charlotte cake maker extraordinaire, Gail from Cheesecake Etc.

I think lace and burlap are such a pretty, girly combination for a wedding!  The pink vintage Depression glass plates went perfectly with the theme, and paired wonderfully with the modern teal and pink glassware from Pier One.  Baby’s breath made a soft addition to the tablescape.nc wedding photographers

Laura and Dennis {wedding} Lake Lure, NC

Laura and Dennis had very different views on where they wanted to be married.  Laura wanted to be married on a sandy beach; Dennis wanted to be married in the mountains.  They knew they had found the perfect location when they discovered Rumbling Bald Resort in gorgeous Lake Lure, NC.  Surrounded by mountains, they professed their love for each other on a gazebo on a sandy beach.

Their sweet little guy served as ring bearer, pulled along in a wagon, carrying a foot ball as a ring pillow.   He pretty much stole the show there for a while! ;)
