Meet Laura. She is absolutely the sweetest bride ever. & she got ready in the best room at the Omni downtown. The view was absolutely amazing!!
& this is her beau Nate. He is so romantic and sincere. I was so excited to be part of their big day!!
The details of Laura's flowers, dress and jewelry were so vibrant against the gray sky.
Laura had the sweetest gift for Nate & while the bridesmaids were watching him open it we slipped her into her wedding dress. When the girls came back to the room we did a big reveal & their faces made it so worth it!
Laura & I were stalking the weather for about a week leading up to her wedding day. Naturally, April showers bring May flowers. It rained, but luckily just a light sprinkle, all day.
I was actually super excited for the rain because that meant we were able to use these super cool umbrellas. & rain on your wedding day is good luck!
Even though Nate & Laura wanted to keep with the tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding, they did have a 'First Feel'. I loved being able to capture their first moments alone while they prayed before the ceremony.
The ceremony took place at St.Mary's Chapel in downtown Charlotte. Nate & Laura shared communion, rings, sand ceremony and their first kiss as husband and wife.
Afterwards the newlyweds celebrated with their closest family and friends!
Once we were able to get the love birds alone their true passion for each other came out. They couldn't be happier and more in love. I was so happy for them!
The chapel had beautiful trees and glowing lamps to light up their new union.
Then the crowd headed to Roof With a View to dance the night away.
These are the sweet dancing pictures but check back for the gallery of all the guests. There were some great dancers in this group!
Most couples cut the cake and eat it very sweetly. Laura had a rebellious side all of the sudden and check out what she did...
Loved it!! Then the couple left to a tunnel of glow sticks. Off to a wonderful two week honeymoon in Europe!!
This day would not have been quite as amazing without all of the help of the vendors:
