Jnnifer & Dylan had a beautiful wedding day from start to finish. They had a classic Catholic wedding ceremony at St. Gabriel’s church and an energetic, fun reception at the Terrace at Cedar Hill in Charlotte.
HOH arrived to start our day at the Residence Inn uptown Charlotte. Details are definitely one of my favorite parts of the wedding day. So much work goes into planning every last detail of the wedding day, so I want my couples to have portraits of their details to look back on and remember forever.
The hustle and bustle of wedding day can be super overwhelming, so another favorite moment of mine is putting on the dress. I usually have the bridesmaids clear out of the room to give us space, plus it gives the bride a quiet moment with her mom and sisters.
I haven’t had a whole lot of First Looks this season so when I get one, I get a little giddy inside. Jenifer & Dylan’s did not disappoint.
Doing a First Look before the ceremony allows us more time to do formal portraits before the ceremony so that the bride & groom can have more fun at the reception.
First Looks aren’t just for bride and grooms, often times we set up a First Look between the bride and her dad as well.
The Catholic ceremony was beautiful and serene. I love all the rituals and traditions involved with a church wedding.
Jenifer & Dylan’s reception venue used to be called Roof with a View and we have photographed there many times but now it is the new and improved Terrace at Cedar Hill. This venue has the most amazing city views yet has the added benefit of a private parking lot.
The ceremony was beautiful, the party was all the rage and their exit was just as exiting. Thanks for letting HOH be a part of your wedding day Jenifer & Dylan!
