Brittany decided to start her morning at the Omni hotel in uptown Charlotte. The Omni has large, gorgeous suites with tons of natural light, which make this photographer very happy! The talented Lindsey with Lovely By Lindsey did the bridal hair and makeup. While makeup was finishing up, I documented all of the details for the wedding day.
Brittany not only made such a beautiful bride but she was very easy going and joyful on her wedding day which made photographing her a breeze. Brittany’s gorgeous dress was purchased at J Major’s Bridal Boutique.
I love to sneak in a quick first look with a bride and her dad before heading over to the venue. It’s a special quiet moment for just the two of them before the chaos of the day continues.
Brittany and Michael got married at St. Gabriel’s Church. I grew up Catholic so I always appreciate a good full mass wedding. It was the first time the groom saw the bride and made for special portraits.
Once they were officially married we rounded up the crew and headed outside for some amazing wedding party portraits. The wind was blowing and the weather was perfect on this October day.
After portraits with the family and wedding party, it was time for Brittany and Michael to enjoy being together as husband and wife for the first time alone. We may have been there to direct them and capture the moments.
Those flowers were absolutely stunning and were provided by Sweet T Flowers.
After portraits in the park, we jumped back on the trolley and headed off to Founders Hall for a fun filled reception. The decor, florals and cake were all so stunning and perfectly Fall!
The couple was even able to join their guests for a few minutes of their cocktail hour.
The day was orchestrated by the awesome wedding planners Magnificent Moments Weddings. Well done ladies!
